Archives For Tea at Victoria’s

The inaugural Tea @ Victoria’s filled in a little less than four days. I am excited that folks are so excited.

I’ve got dates for the next few months and a menu for April below. I’m introducing a twist for April, a bit of a thé salon. We’ll discuss our most hated books, those that you read all the way to end. No mud slinging on the tastes of others, just impassioned vitriol for those hours we’ll never get back. If you still have a copy of the detested tome, bring it with you and we’ll swap. One person’s circle of hell might be someone else’s awaited paradise.

I’ll let you in on a secret. One of mine is Anna Karenina. By the end of the book, I wanted to throw them all under a train.
