To Do: Host an earthquake centennial party

The 1906 Earthquake Centennial is a big deal in San Francisco. Along with photo exhibits at the Legion of Honor, an exhibition downtown, daily news coverage and television specials, there are hundreds of events planned for the next two weeks.

Instead of getting completely creeped out and spending the evening hoarding canned goods at Safeway, it would be better to ring in the centennial with some city friends a lot of wine! (For the record, we already have emergency supplies of water, food, radios, etc) I think I'll plan a dinner party for April 18th.

But what should I serve? Perhaps, copy the St. Francis breakfast:
The menu included scrambled eggs, stewed rhubarb, oatmeal, biscuits, bacon and coffee -- the same menu that has been served every April 18 since.
Maybe not. I'll probably go with a basic dinner. Pasta from Lucca's? Of course, a Jello or aspic is a must! And I should probably some turn-of-the-century staples like gin fizz and bombay pudding. Any ideas?

I recommend "shaken, not stirred" martinis! Super cute idea you've got, Em. :)
