Rapture Menu Ideas

On a goof and partially by happenstance we realized that we have plans to go see Joan Jett in a casino with several friends on the evening of the 21st. Various news coverage this week informed us that there is a sizable group of people expecting the rapture on this same evening. Sooo in part to secure our special seats in hell (if the casino and Joan Jett weren't enough) we decided to have a pre-show, warmup, end of the world, rapture party. It is all in good fun and I am having a hard time coming up with menu ideas. Bring on your creativity!

    1. Hmm. I went to a Dead Celebrity's party when I was in college, I wonder if some of those ideas wouldn't translate here? We had Marilyn Monroe Mix (bowl of good & plenty's, looked like pills), JFK dip (half a manniquin's head (lined with foil) filled with a chunky salsa and cheese dip, stuff like that?

      Alternately you could interpret rapture as ecstasy and serve "aphrodisiac" foods like oysters and chocolate or things that are "sinfully" good like devil's food cake, etc?
