(Newser) – Chefs at Cullen's restaurant have created a sumptuous meal made up of dishes similar to those the Titanic passengers were served … on the very night many of them met their death. If you choose to indulge in the 10-course meal, of course, you won't end up on a sinking ship afterward—but you will be out $12,000, Yahoo! reports. The four-hour Titanic Experience is being held at the exclusive Macy's Table, a room suspended from the ceiling of the Houston restaurant, which can seat only 12 people.

If you can convince 11 friends to attend with you, the price for each will be just $1,000. A sampling of the menu: wine, a beef appetizer, after-dinner cheese, and a 1900 bottle of Armagnac brandy. The event commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking, coming up on April 15.
