Tired of Jack and Rose? Catch these Titanic events instead

If you’d like to learn about not one tragedy, but two, “Fire and Ice: Hindenburg and Titanic” at the National Postal Museum can provide your fix of historical doom. Well-dressed history buffs can catch a fashion show of titanic proportions, bringing designer and survivor Lady Lucile Duff Gordon’s collection to the Hillwood Estate ($15, $12 for seniors, $10 for students).

The Army Navy Country Club in Arlington will host a Titanic Commemoration Dinner, featuring a six-course meal, music, dancing and performances by live actors ($100). For those looking for a cheaper bite, Thai Tanic in Logan Circle and Columbia Heights may float your boat.

If a weekend in is on the agenda, however, don’t worry - you can still catch ABC’s “Titanic” on television. The miniseries lasts for four one-hour episodes beginning Saturday at 8 p.m. (Leonardo DiCaprio not included.)
