Afternoon tea.

I went with two out of town colleagues to visit the Pierre Hotel, where we are hosting a client event this spring. Before they left for the airport we decided to have a drink, and were directed to the hotel's rotunda, where afternoon tea was being served. Very interesting to see who was there having full high tea: an elderly woman with a fur coat draped over the empty chair across from her, a middle-aged single man in a suit reading a book, a retired couple giving off a touristy vibe. We passed on tea to have a glass of champagne - although they brought us a complimentary plate of finger sandwiches. I think it's the kind of place that would be fun to take an out of town guest - my mother or better yet, my grandmother, who is more often impressed with that type of thing - although I'd have to hide the menu from them as they would balk at the prices (nearly $50 for tea and sandwich/cakes.)
