The HMS Titanic sailed on Saturday night and went down with a splash. A themed Titanic party was held at the home of Brad Ballington and Dusty Conner. About 100 adventurers dressed in black tie or period costumes enjoyed the evening. Everyone danced to Hurricane Eddie Wilson and the Damaging Winds, a live band, and enjoyed a nine-course dinner menu prepared by Gary Lang, head chef at Breakwater Restaurant. The 1958 classic black & white movie, “A Night to Remember”, played on an outdoor screen, adding to the atmosphere of glamour and disaster. A thunder storm rolled through in the middle of the party but did not dampen the mood at all. At exactly 11:52 p.m., the time the real Titanic was sinking, Mike McFee sang “Nearer My God to Thee” to the doomed passengers. After the ship went down, the survivors rendezvoused at The Fillin’ Station for dessert and cocktails, happy to be alive.
