There’s been a bit of a stir over Air Hollywood’s Pan Am dining experience — eat dinner on board a replica of a Pan Am 747. A $200 ticket gets you a business class seat for cocktails, dinner, and a movie. And a $300 first class ticket gives you a first class seat for cocktails and the movie, and the upper deck dining room for your meal.
Pricey, but very cool and probably worth it for a unique evening out experience if you’re in the Los Angeles area while it’s happening. Cocktails, dinner, and a movie in at a unique venue doesn’t come cheap.
Here’s the site to buy tickets and the upcoming dates:

Randy Petersen points me to Mile High, a London-based pop up food experience that’s now come to New York.

The meals are destination-themed, with past events focused on Beirut, Sicily, Gothenburg, Mozambique, and Andalucia. October will feature an event in New York with the evening’s destination as London, ironic as the events have previously themselves been based in London.
It’s $120++ per person, at a ‘secret’ New York location to be announced (not a plane), on the following dates:
