How does that saying go? Two things in life are a given, death and taxes. Sadly for those of us who enjoy life and don't get hit with a lot of taxes we probably don't think much about either but this weekend you can spend some time thinking about your eternal plans over drinks.

Whoever came up with this is brilliant. Talking about death and what we want when it comes to a funeral can be, to say the least, an awkward conversation at best. No one likes to discuss their last day and most people don't enjoy hearing you talk about it but the reality is it is a tough conversation we all should have sooner than later.

That may be why a night like Death Over Drinks has been created. I hear there is also a Death Over Dinner option as well. So what is it exactly? It is actually a clever way to get people to open up about their last wish in a setting that might feel weird at first but I assume makes it easier to tackle the subject after a drink or two. No word about themed cocktails but I wouldn't rule it out.
