TEA IN WONDERLAND. A MAD TEA PARTY!

Saturday. May 5th, 2018, The Infusion Cafe will once again visit Alice and all the zany personalities that people her adventures.... and we invite you to come with us!

It will be a grand and enchanting afternoon, full of nonsense and whimsy- the eighth annual Formal Tea Event in our "Alice in Wonderland" series...

A Mad Tea Party & Literary Event based on the beloved classic

THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS,

by Lewis Carroll

...

Set in Wonderland... with two courses of themed tea & three courses of themed tea fare; including an appetizer, our formal two tiered server (stacked with savories and sweets) and our famous grand finale dessert... (tea fare created for you by our kitchen artists inspired by Carroll's trip into this land of imagination).

This afternoon of whimsy will find our friends and guests attended by non other than the Mad Hatter, Alice, the March Hare, the Doormouse, the Red and White Queens, the Lion and the Unicorn, and Humpty Dumpty.

Music, story-telling and fantasy come to life in a theatrical tea-time- this is sure to be an afternoon to remember!

...

"I didn't know it was your table," said Alice: "it is laid out for a great many more than three." "Treacle..." said the Doormouse... "I want a clean cup," interrupted the Hatter...

Mark Twain once said, "A Southerner talks music." If this is true, Coastline speaks in volumes. An eclectic blend of soul, blues, and rock has produced the sound known as Coastline. From hard driving Carolina back beats, to Georgia southern rock, from Cajun inspired grooves, to Texas and Delta blues; Coastline truly defines the sound of historical Southern music. With finesse, the pure forms of southern music are transformed into a modern contemporary art form.
