*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? :)
