It is me again, trying to do another Meet Up. Maybe I am a bit loopy trying to organize these things. But I will keep on trying. And BTW, the four of us who got together on July the 13th for the Meet Up had a wonderful time despite all of the complications.
I tried this once before in the late spring. I had a wonderful afternoon with Dorthy Treasure. But I'd like to see if we can get a bigger group to go to afternoon tea this time. The date will be Saturday August the 17th. And I will probably schedule it for around 2 or 3 PM. There are two options, either the Huntington Library which is fabulous. Unless it is a really large group, I can probably get everyone in free because I have passes. But the tea costs about $30 plus tax and tip. Or we can again return to the Chado tea room which is fairly inexpensive. Chado is in Old Town Pasadena. I will have to make reservations a few weeks in advance. So I wanted to put this out to get an idea if anyone is interested. I have already talked about this with a few of you and I have also emailed a few local PUGster sisters. So please let me know if you are interested.
Ooh, I want to go!
Sounds like fun!
Interested person here! :) Would 4:30 pm be awfully late? I think that's when I possibly could make it there....
I (for one) firmly believe you should continue to keep looping us together (pun intended, lol!) - you are awesome at it, and without you, I don't know that those of us who can would think about getting together. That being said, I will check my PTO to see if I can take the day off to join you. Since I am in blech shape financially, I would appreciate the Old Pas High Tea, especially since we can do some window (or actual) shopping before or afterwards. I promise to let you know ASAP.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Desilu xoxoxo ;)
THE MORE THE MERRIER!
I would love for this to be a bit of a bigger event than our previous meet ups have been. So I especially encourage all you dolls who are new to these little events.
I must admit that I do not come up with these meet ups full formed in my mind. I like to throw things out and get feedback to help them come together. I was already leaning to doing the tea at the Chado Tea Room because of the price there. most of the time tea is a mid-afternoon affair. So I still think that we should plan the actual tea to be somewhere in that time frame. But I love Auburn Hills' idea of getting in some shopping in while in Pasadena. There are antique stores along Fair Oaks about a mile south from where we will be and there is a big antique place in Plaza Pasadena. Maybe we could meet first for those interested at one of those places. Nilay, I know that you can't get to Pasadena til late afternoon. Maybe after the tea, those who are interested could go to one of the wine bars or beer places in the area. And if any of you are game, we could figure out more to do, in the shape of nightlife?
So please ladies, give me more feedback or any other ideas you may have. I will most definitely have to make reservations for the tea room. I don't need any final answers at this time. But I do want to get a ball park figure of those who are interested. I would like to make reservations in about a week, by the end of July.
I might be able to work it so that I could be there by 3 pm. Because I want to go to tea!!!!
But the later the better, of course. I for sure won't be able to make it to a shipping trip earlier. Later could be good.... Yet, God knows I don't need a single piece of clothing till the end of my life anyway... so, I can easily skip that.
The date is almost perfect for my crazy schedule, sooooo hope we do it!
Yes! We have to have you there!
I won't be able to make it that weekend but I'll be at the PUG Boutique one year anniversary on Friday and look forward to any other meet ups you all have! Keep up the good work Aoife!
Is the anniversary this Friday???? Wish it was Saturday... Wonder if they'd still have reminiscents of it on Saturday :P
Thanks Natalie. I wish I could go tomorrow. I am going to Grand Performances to a free concert instead. So please have fun for me. I wish you could go to the tea. But we will see each other again! And in the meantime, check your mailbox!
Ah! Will do! Oh and I'll be sure to take pictures to post about the event tonight too.
I am very interested, Aoife! Tea party and doing a bit of shopping sounds like a great time! I really loved spending time together at the last meet up so looking forward to doing it again! I really appreciate you putting these things together!
