SATURDAY DINNER EVOKES MEMORIES OF TITANIC

People interested in the history of the Titanic are invited to attend a dinner -- served Titanic-style -- from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday in the Premier Banquet Center in Olean.

The event will allow diners to experience the food and beverages served in the first-class dining salon of the massive ocean liner, which sank April 10, 1912, while on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic.

On the gourmet menu: lobster bisque with seasoned croutons, spring mixed salad, filet mignon with Marsala wine sauce, broiled lamb chops, grilled salmon with dill sauce, and bread pudding with chocolate Kahlua glaze.

Appearing at the event will be three experts connected with recovery efforts of the Titanic. David Eno of Washington, D.C., is a Western New York native who has studied the Titanic for decades; Capt. Craig McLean was aboard the research ship when Dr. Robert Ballard and his crew discovered the location of the Titanic; and Per Jevne is a Norwegian journalist who has also investigated the ship.

The event is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Olean & Vicinity. For tickets or information, call 373-4230.
