Late for Supper at Elmwood

Posted By on Fri, Jun 26, 2009 at 10:23 AM

7361/1246030719-springangel.jpgIf you were planning on attending tonight's "Supper at Elmwood Cemetery" — a fund-raiser for the upkeep and promotion of Memphis’ oldest active cemetery — we regret to inform you that your chance to secure seats has passed away.

The good news: Elmwood is already taking reservations for the next event on October 30th.

Tonight’s bill of fare includes recipes from Being Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral by Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays.

But don’t let the funerary cookbook fool you: the food promises to be lively and the atmosphere charming.

Supper includes wine, a light spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette, the “Methodist Ladies’ Chicken Lasagna Florentine,” and a choice of two Southern "dump" cakes — chocolate cherry and apple spice.

After the meal, a one to one-and-a-half hour walking tour of the grounds will round out the event, so bring a comfortable pair of shoes.

“People are always looking for a unique dining experience,” says Kimberly McCollum, Elmwood's executive director. “I can’t think of anything more unique than having dinner at a cemetery.”

For more information about the October 30th Supper, go to or call 774-3212.
