History Tea at the Drake Hotel with Richard

History Tea at the Drake Hotel, Chicago with Richard

RESCHEDULED DATE:   Friday, March 22, 12 p.m.

This is a fabulous event, and anyone that would like to attend is invited.  Just RSVP via the Facebook link at the bottom of this post.  I will be making the reservation on Tuesday, 3/26.

Information on the tea:

Enjoy a new spin on The Drake Hotel’s legendary afternoon tea! The Drake offers its very own “History Tea” in the spectacular Palm Court. Enjoy an assortment of tea sandwiches, pastries and scones with traditional accompaniments plus a tour through 91 years of Drake history courtesy of Tea Sommelier, Shaun Rajah. Hear the story of the Lady in Red or the tale of when Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe carved their initials in the Cape Cod bar.

The History Tea is available Monday – Friday, February 1 – March 31 with seatings from 12 pm – 4 pm. Three guided tours will take place during this time. Cost is $30 per person.

Here is the twist....  everyone is encouraged to wear their vintage fashions!  

I would love to make this a yearly event to help spread the word about wearing Vintage and show support for the community in Chicago. 

PLUS, how cool would it be (and how much attention would it garner) to be at the Drake for a history tea all gussied up in vintage?!
