When: Saturday, May 1, 2pm-until we pass out from food coma
Where: Pinecone Cottage, a very cute country-style tea house in Downers Grove @ 1029 Burlington Avenue. This is right across from the train tracks, a stone's throw from the Metra station, and there is plentiful free parking nearby.
Cost: $29 per person, which includes tax and gratuity.
Food: The menu changes every month and I don't know what it will be for May. However, they typically do a four-course afternoon tea, with soup, 3 kinds of tea savories, really awesome scones, and a tasty dessert. Here is this month's menu, to give a rough idea.
Dress code: Country, classic, and sweet will look especially nice with the decor, but all styles are welcome. Spring colors will be especially appreciated! Any gentlemen in attendance should dress as such; appropriate boystyles are best, but failing that, at least no jeans or T-shirts. If the weather is good, we will gather early (12:30pm) and take pictures in downtown Downers Grove.
There is a limit to the space of 32 people, so please reserve your space quickly. In order to reserve a space, you must put down a non-refundable deposit of $10 for yourself and each guest you bring. The deposit will be due in by Friday, April 2, and the remainder ($19) by Friday, April 23. This should be plenty of time to get your accounts in order. :)
