It’s spring, y’all. It’s time to put away those awful overcoats and bust out something just a little more pink and frilly; time to sit on the porch sipping a glass of cool peach tea and shoot the balmy breeze with your girlfriends or sisters or mother or great aunt Clarabelle. Sisters Tea Parlor in Bucker is throwing a “Gone With the Breeze Mystery Tea” this weekend, March 22nd and 23rd, both at 6:30 pm, and it’s just the perfect way to kick off this wonderfully warm season.The theme of the evening is a Southern Belle Whodunit (acted out by the staff and perhaps some patrons), complete with traditional tea service, a soup and salad course, and a three tiered tea tray of goodies. Dinner and a show--that you are more than welcome to participate in, by the way, if you visit the website and make your reservation early enough to get a speaking part. Sisters is one of the cutest and girliest little places around, and I am just tickled pink to see what they have in store!
Sisters will be serving bottomless pots of tea (their tea menu is extensive and luscious, it includes flavors like chocolate coconut cherry, long island strawberry, and orange vanilla infusion, among many others) along with corn chowder, and wilted lettuce salad as a first course. This will be followed by a three tiered Tea tray with fried green tomato, “I don’t give a yam” biscuit with blackberry preserves and county ham, a chicken and waffle skewer with maple cream, garlic cheddar and Georgia peach scones, a mint julep cupcake, a Mississippi Mud Pie brownie, candied spiced pecans, and cheese straws! Y’all had better lace those corsets up TIGHT! The cost per person is $32, but that includes taxes, gratuity, and all the tea you can stuff down your darlin’ little gullet, sugar. Don't forget to make reservations!
Y’all come on down and have some tea with us, now!
