Heinz, Betty Perry, and Queen Jill Davis met at The Tea Zone in the
Pearl District of downtown Portland for a lovely afternoon holiday
tea. The service was excellent and the food was scrumptious. Betty
and Jill sipped chocolate mint teas, and Sandie tried something with
a fruity flavor. The food was just a bit different from most tea
rooms. We enjoyed apricot scones, Sicilian roasted veggie tartlet,
mini chicken curry empanada, herb and gorgonzola phyllo
pillow. Instead of desserts, we substituted quiche. All
quite a hit in our Red Hat regalia and took lots of pictures with other
patrons and the staff. One young man, Ryan, came up to us asking if
we were part of the Red Hat Society. He indicated that his
mother and grandmother, who lived in two different states back East, also
belonged to the R.H.S. We took photos of him so his mom and grandma
could see us all together.
other wonderful people including a darling couple, Brian and Jill, who are
on vacation, and a lovely gal, Biddy, who works in advertising at the Portland
Oregonian newspaper. We also got a photo of Lisa, a patron who
seemed to enjoy watching all our craziness, but it didn't turn out too
well. Sorry Lisa.
keep on having fun!
