The Menu Library of Congress

On the odd little website Collectible Meals, you can thumb through a library of menus from historical meals of note. For example, I'm sure Mr. President would be interested to know that Abraham Lincoln had veal, venison, and poultry at his 2nd inaugural ball. Patsy Cline's wake? Ham, ham sandwiches, and scrambled eggs with bacon. Fan of pork, I guess.

Most seem pretty predictible. Elvis ate grits with Natalie Wood. Grace Kelly just had a salad when she told her b.f.f. that she was going to be a Princess. My favorite so far is this one:

Barbra Streisand...with Omar Sharif: During the filming of the movie Funny Girl, Streisand and Sharif held many "script conferences" in Shariff's hotel suite.
