Dinner in the sky? Fodor's Convention 2007 perhaps?

"So you've been invited to dinner, and when you get there, you're led to a dining table elegantly set for 22. The host asks you to step into your seat and begins strapping you in like a race car driver. You look around and realize that this dining table with a beautiful clear canopy over it has wires attached to it that's attached to a giant crane parked nearby. Your heart races and you wonder what the heck is going on?!!"

I lost my appetite for lunch just looking at the photo.

I would have the biggest panic attack in the world. Great concept but not for me.
2007 GTG sounds great though!!!

jorr, you type in the <color> you want the following words to be.

for red <you type in the word red> like this.

for blue <you type in the word blue> like this.

There are a couple of threads explaining it more - one was active on the Europe board earlier today

I saw this posted on another board. I said the same thing about dropping the fork. I can't even imagine but I'll bet they are booked months ahead.

LOL Jagirl!

You probably wouldn't want to drink too much up there either - in case you get a little wobbly and fall out of your chair.

And obviously, no sending your food back either!

Booked out you say? It ain't cheap you know. €7,900 for eight hours.

Here's how it all works...

My palms are all sweaty looking at the table.

How are the waiters walking around?

I presume they supply a role of toilet paper for each guest.

One advantage - if you don't like the food and don't want to be rude by not eating it, you could very casually sneak it off your plate a little bit at a time and send it on a flying vacation!
