**High Tea at the Mission Inn (951) 784-0300** Friday, January 04, 2019 2:00 PM

Southern CA High Tea Meetup

(Price charged includes tax, tip and paypal fees) The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa Riverside California's National Historic Landmark is beautiful this time of year with the entire place covered with lights/Holiday decorations. Come enjoy the holidays with the group and enjoy some afternoon tea. I chose the least expensive tea on the menu without alcohol. If someone wants a cocktail/wine this is available for purchase in addition to the tea price.

For those interested we will also have an “optional” $15 Gift Exchange (Please bring a "tea" related item if you would like)

Where magnificent grand vistas harbor countless intimate hidden treasures. And where the outside world is left behind, setting a grand stage for memories that will last a lifetime.

For over a century, world leaders and Hollywood stars have chosen The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, CA as a place of refuge and renewal. Originally built as a two-story adobe guesthouse in 1876, the Inn has become the crown jewel of Inland Southern California, occupying an entire city block.

We will be at the "Mission Inn Restaurant" within the complex. The High Tea features Kelly's Tea offerings, served with savory selections and an assortment of delicious & dainty sweets.

They are extremely strict about cancelations so if you are going to book please be aware they will not give the money back. Limit for reservation is 20 as this is the limit they have for this day (they have my credit card to reserve and charge it right away). I like this hotel as I was there for another event for business and it is beautiful. There is also a spa in the hotel. The actual Tea selections look wonderful! (It's all about the tea at this place!)

For those interested we will also have an optional $15-20 Gift Exchange (Please bring a "tea" related item!)
