Holiday Tea at The Chintz Tea Cup

Saturday, December 21, 2002

The Crimson Crones, along with a few Scarlet Ladies and Vancouver Belles, enjoyed a lovely holiday tea at The Chintz Tea Cup in the Sellwood Antique District of Portland.   The proprietor, Jan Lambert, arranged for live saxophone and guitar music by Peterson Entertainment, and it certainly doubled the pleasure of our afternoon tea.

Harborside Restaurant

Several hours after the tea, nine of us went to the Harborside Restaurant at the marina at river front to visit, munch on appetizers, and await the Christmas Boat parade on the Willamette River. We had two tables right at the window for an excellent view.   It was a wonderful day and evening of red hat bonding and getting to know each other better.

People walking along the river front were quite taken with the sight of so many women in their red hats sitting by the window at the Harborside restaurant.   They frequently smiled and waved at us.
