Ladies’ Tea at Gadsby’s Tavern In January

Start the new year off with a historic girls’ day out – the Ladies’ Tea at Gadsby’s Tavern! On Sunday, January 15, 2012, take tea from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Gadsby’s Tavern Restaurant, 138 North Royal Street. Sip a special blend of tea from Gadsby’s Tavern Museum and eat period-inspired delicacies with your 21st-century friends and Gadsby’s 18th-century hostesses.

Following tea, enjoy a tour of the museum. Tea is $30 per person, and reservations are required. To make reservations and purchase tickets, call 703.746.4242 or visit www.gadsbystavern.org.

As America began as a nation during the late 18th century and emerged in the 19th century, Gadsby’s Tavern was the center of social and political life in Alexandria as well as the new Federal City of Washington. The tavern served as the premier gathering place for residents – including George Washington – and visitors to eat, drink, learn, and influence history.  Tavern keepers John Wise and John Gadsby hosted balls, performances, and meetings, and their accommodations were known as the best by travelers near and far.

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum is located at 134 North Royal Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria and is owned and operated by the City of Alexandria.

For more information, please call 703.746.4242 or visit www.gadsbystavern.org.
