Here is the official information on a Long Beach Tea Party meet up I spoke of a while ago on la_loligoth~~
The event has been planned for May 20th, though we’re still open for suggestions. We want to get as many people as possible able to go, so the date is still up for discussion.
We’ll be eating at Vintage Tea Leaf (www.vintagetealeaf.com), which is located here:
Vintage Tea Leaf
969 E. Broadway
Long Beach 90802
However just a luncheon seems a bit boring, so if anyone has ideas for what else we can do, or knows anything fun in that area, please let me know!
So far we have suggestions for going to a Cue (photo booth place), and finding a movie theater nearby to go see Shrek the Third. Please let me know what you think about these!
What my sister and I were planning on doing in way of reservation is this:
Since a reservation is a bit out of my price range to pay entirely on my own, and since we obviously want to ensure that we are able to have a table that day, my sister and I had the idea to split the cost between the two of us, and then have the girls re-reimburse us at the party. This way, there’s no need for anyone to send any money through mail and risk evil money schemes or losing anything through the post. Of course we’re not going to make each girl pay us $60; once we’re all together we’ll divide the amount of people there by 60, and have them pay the amount that comes up. Right now it’s at about $6.50.
The start of the Tea Party will be 11:30, though I request that everyone be half an hour early just to ensure that we’re all there on time and to get introductions, questions, and other things out of the way. ^__^
Please note that I have not actually been to this shop myself, but I will have a full review of the area around the shop and the actual resturant by Mother's Day (a week before the meet-up) If anyone has any experience here, or suggestions, please let me know!! ^O^
There is no set dress code, such as casual or formal, just what ever you feel comfortable wearing out. If anyone wants to post a picture or a description of what you plan to wear, even just to get suggestions, please feel free! I myself will probably be doing this at the end of the week. This is mostly to help people decide what they want to wear (if you feel uncomfortable about being too dressed down, or too dressed up), however it's not maditory.
