Grand Victorian Garden Tea

June 184-8 pm.
Gemini and Scorpio invite you to travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far as 14th Street). It's a proper turn-of-century tea party with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies served in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan. Historical chef Rebecca Leigh Silverman will hand-make delectable treats from antique recipes, and give a small talk about each dish.  Enjoy period appropriate leisure activities too.
  Dress code: 1800-1910s summer garden party, with all white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. For tickets click here.
