What Would Miss Manners Say?

From my church news bulletin - -

"Fifty years ago, Nazi Adolf Eichmann went on trial in Jerusalem for war crimes. The 1961 trial electrified the world community and unleashed the modern-era interest in the Holocaust and Holocaust Survivors.

On Thursday, September 8, this educational trip will begin with a tour of the Dallas Holocaust Museum and then to dinner at Hoffbrau Steak Restaurant. Following dinner, we will attend a special lecture and presentation by Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, author of the new book The Eichmann Trial (Schocken/Nextbook, 2011) at the Temple Emanu-El, in Dallas. Bus will leave Founder's Chapel at 2 p.m. and will return around 10:30 p.m. Cost is $46 (Lecture and Museum Tour), plus the cost of your dinner."

Miss Manners would probably point out that one does not eat at a German-sounding steakhouse after touring a holocaust museum.  Tex-mex is appropriate.  Chinese is an alternative.  Italian is on the edge.  German, never.  And don't get me started on the suggestion of a French restaurant given their Vichy past.
