Night of the Living Dead 

Ever wonder what friends and family will say in your eulogy? Memphis & Shelby County Film Commission director Linn Sitler will have the rare opportunity to find out during a faux funeral at the Woodruff-Fontaine House this weekend.

The mock memorial service is part of "A Night in the Village," an All Saints' Day celebration in Victorian Village. On Saturday, November 1st, attendees will gather at St. Mary's Cathedral on Poplar for a performance of requiem selections by the St. Mary's and St. Luke's church choirs.

After the service, a bagpipe procession will lead the group to the basement of the Woodruff-Fontaine House for Sitler's Irish wake.

"Unlike a real funeral, Linn will be allowed a short rebuttal after her eulogy," says Scott Blake, president of the Victorian Village Community Development Corporation.

Afterwards, Celtic band Planet Reel will provide entertainment while attendees dine on Irish stew and beer. An after-party follows at Mollie Fontaine Lounge.

All money raised from the event will benefit the Victorian Village Community Development Corporation.

Night at the Village, Saturday, November 1st, 7:30 p.m. $50. St. Mary's Cathedral, 692 Poplar (523-0235).
