Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea for two at Bettys Tea Room, Harlow Carr on February 12, 2009 in Harrogate, England. The family owned company Taylors of Harrogate have been producing it’s blends of teas and coffee since 1886 and serving it’s products at the famous and traditional Bettys Tea Shops. Despite recent increases in the price of tea and the surge of coffee shops, the ‘cuppa’ is proving to be as popular as ever with bookings in Britain’s discerning tea rooms being made weeks in advance. Consumption also increases during a recession as tea lovers take solace drinking tea. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

So Black Friday. Let’s talk about it.

Thousands of people, looking for a bundle of deals. Now you know waking up at 4am to go wait in a line isn’t my thing, so I found an alternative! Tea!

Yes, that’s right. Black Friday Afternoon Tea at the St. Regis Atlanta is where I will be while you wait for the latest version of Tickle Me Elmo. Now this event is on November 23rd from 2pm-5pm, so you should probably go ahead and get your tickets now.

It’s not just an afternoon of tea, there are also a couple of perks to get you going as well. How about a $50 Neiman Marcus gift card with a glass of sparkling wine and fashion-inspired sweets. Hmm…fashion-inspired? Are they like pieces of dark chocolate dressed in mini cardigans?

Tickets are $90 and include complimentary valet parking. Reservations are encouraged. Gift cards and valet parking? What more could a boy ask for? I guess a football, but I’m more into shopping bags than pigskin.

To find out all of the information or to purchase tickets, call 404.563.7910.

I’ll be sure to wave to you with my wine in hand as you trample the masses!
