Dinner in the Sky?

Dinner in the Sky...
Anyone, Anyone?

Well, I think this pretty much takes the "cake" as one of the most bizarre ideas I've seen in a long, long time. Yep, nothing says "gourmet" like eating your dinner with 20 or so other strangers, while suspended high above the ground by a crane.

Hungry for some moist and succulent airtime? Well, Dinner in the Sky (based in Europe) will only cost you 7,900€, or about $10,000.

Holy shiitake... mushrooms, Batman!

Here's basically how it works: Dinner in the Sky seats 22 people around the table. In the middle of the table there are 3 other people: a chef, a waiter and an entertainer. Then, once you're strapped in, the table is lifted about 50 meters (164 feet) into the air by a crane.

Dinner in the Sky also comes with a second crane, that is, as the company says, "for entertainment such as a music band or a car that is being presented at the same height as the table."

Huh? A car? I think perhaps they've been cooking with the wrong type of mushrooms.

Now, I do have a few questions here: What happens if someone starts choking or gets sick? Remember, you're strapped into a chair 164 ft. about the ground! What happens if it suddenly gets real windy and rainy? And of course, what about lightning? You're essentially eating dinner while attached to a GIANT lightning rod!

Dinner in the sky? FORKget about it. -Nice hats by the way, folks.
