Champers, Tea & Gorgeous Nibbly Bits

This is where I post a second post about food in one day and you start to wonder if I'm not, well, obsessing.

Tomorrow I'm off to The Victoria Room for a spot of High Tea amongst the faux British Raj-style splendour. (See pic below, from their website. Nice, huh?) I figure I can scarf down a few nibbly bits and champers, and then live on celery for the rest of the weekend. It's all about balance.





The outing was organised by some female friends of Mikey (the lovely ex) and mine, and while I was checking out the website to see if it was link-worthy, I spotted the following write-up about tomorrow's High Tea event. You see, The Victoria Room do High Tea every weekend but it turns out that tomorrow's is a special event to coincide with the Sydney Morning Herald's "Good Food Month".



"The Victoria Room Brown Brothers Sparkling High Tea"

Ladies of all ages can enjoy a revived British tradition and one of the finer girly things in life - a sparkling High Tea at The Victoria Room.

Sip Brown Brothers' recently released sparkling wine, Zibbibo Rosa, whilst experiencing High Tea at its best complete with Opera Australia and jazz performers.

$45pp including sandwiches, scones, sweets, loose leaf tea, glass of Zibbibo Rosa sparkling wine and delightful goodie bag


Okay. It's a good thing that I'm a man who enjoys the finer girly things in life, right? It has that kind of 'girls only' edge, don't you think? Not that I'm bothered by that. I mean, might there be an all male revue? I don't care if there is or isn't, but if the 'goodie bag' has a quality eye cream in it (cross your fingers for me), that would be a total score.

Bring your camera. Even if there's no all-male revue, there might be some good hats!

Egggg-xactly. Oh, I might even wear one...

I love high tea! I look forward to the pictures.
And I agree--good hats are a must for a great high tea experience.

I did High Tea in London once, only I was dating a woman at the time. Just not the same. I would LOVE to do that with y'all!

High Tea would be faaaabulous!

O yes. Cheap wine and goodie bags. And why does "the Brown Borthers" sound vaguely scatological?
