Train Ride for Education
All aboard. This special, adult-only dinner train ride is leaving the station. Benefitting Communities in Schools of the Great Smoky Mountains, which works to decrease area dropout rates, the excursion begins at the historic Bryson City Depot. While chugging to the Fontana Trestle and back, a three-course meal will be served, and guests have a choice of prime rib, roasted pork loin, or portobello mushroom, finished with New York-style cheesecake. An Elvis impersonator will provide renditions of “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Jailhouse Rock.” A cash bar is available.
Bryson City Depot, 226 Everett St.; Saturday, 7:30 p.m.; $125; 1-(800) 872-4681; www.gsmr.com
