No matter how you do it, tragedies don't make good "themes."
A country club in Virginia called the Clubhouse at Aquia Harbour was planning a special, 9/11-THEMED meal on Sunday . . . but when the menu made the rounds online, there was a lot of backlash. Understandably.
The menu included stuff like: "9-11 Oysters . . . First Responder Flatbread . . . Flight 93 Redirect Crab Dip . . . Freedom Flounder . . . Pentagon Pie . . . and 2977 Chowder." 2,977 people were killed in the attacks.
The menu suggests chasing it down with a "Remember-tini," with key lime rum cream. And if you can't decide what you want, you could try everything with the "Never Forget Sampler."
The club has since pulled the menu, and a manager apologized. He said, "My intention was to bring attention to that horrific day 21 years ago. To honor those who lost so much as well as those who gave everything that day."
