Queen Victoria’s High Tea
March 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$55.00
Anticipate the celebration of Queen Victoria’s 200th birthday with High Tea in a private room at the Oscar Wilde Bar, a renowned establishment that has been dubbed “the most elaborately decorated pub in New York City.” Our High Tea begins with a glass of sherry or port. This will be followed by three courses: 1) scones with clotted cream, 2) a selection of four tea sandwiches, 3) four choices of petit-fours, tartlets, cookies. And pots of tea (four selections). A brief lecture on the British origins of high tea will be given by John Metcalfe, a native of London and a former VSNY Board member.
Space is limited so only 30 participants can be accommodated.
