High Tea at Pardee Home Oakland

*Note from Sarah*:

Thanks to Courtney for suggesting this one. So, I looked into the venue, and it seems that the $25/person fee has to be paid, in full and by check, a week ahead of time. While the high tea sounds amazing, paying ahead of time may be a bit tricky with the Meetup format. If Courtney or one of the other members would still like to host, please let me know, however I don't want one member to have to be responsible for that burden! Thanks. :)

Hello ladies and fellow tea enthusiasts!

I just came across an article by East Bay Express that read, "The Best High Tea in the Bay Area is Hidden". Apparently it's at the historic Pardee Home Museum in Oakland! Six women volunteers who are all accomplished cooks prepare a homemade, decadent high tea (see photo below!) for just $25 per person, and use the proceeds to help preserve the historic estate. The tea service has also received rave reviews on Yelp. So, would you like to join me in checking it out later this month? :)

    Hi ladies-- as a reminder, to hold this as an event, someone would need to act as host, and then pay a check of $25 a person to the venue a week ahead of time. Personally, I worry that this would cause a lot of grief and frustration for whoever hosts the event, as Meetup-ers, while wonderful people, can be flaky.

    Because of this, I'm not sure if this is a good fit for our group. Our events should be fun and easy, and not stressful at all! There are some other teahouses in the Bay that may be a better fit. Here are some other options, if you ladies have interest:

    Hi Guys, sorry that something came up today at work. May not be able to go for tmr. Is it possible we change a date? I am pretty flexible for the rest of this week except for tmr. Thanks.

    I would be happy to attend and send in a check in advance. Are you still planning to go? May I suggest May?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
