Don your Sunday best and prepare for loads of drama, intrigue, and fake British accents at Madi’s Tea Garden’s Downton Abbey-inspired Valentine’s Tea. Guests are encouraged to dress as their fave character (one time for Lady Mary Crawley) or in their best post-Edwardian or Roaring Twenties garb. Yes, there will be prizes for best outfit and best hat, so be sure to bring it. If you’d rather set your vulva on fire than play dressup, you can come as your damn-fine self and participate in the Downton Abbey trivia contest or raffle.
With a variety of loose-leaf teas to sip, in addition to scones, savory tarts, finger sandwiches, and high tea fare such as turkey in cream sauce and rice pilaf, you’ll be able to infiltrate the royal family on your next trip across the pond. Celebrate the most romantic time of the year like you’re the friggin’ Dowager Countess of Grantham and get mad-fancy this Sunday at Madi’s Tea Garden (4009 SW 152nd Ave., Miami). Tea begins promptly at 2 p.m., and tickets cost $24.95 for one person and $39.95 for two. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit madisteagarden.com.
