Who's more appropriate to have at tea then a penguin?
One thing about the menu that I noticed was different than last time is that they serve soup with the little sandwiches. The normal soup is the shitake mushroom soup from the PCH Grill, but since one of our friends is allergic to mushrooms, he was offered another soup instead. In between courses, the group at our table for 6 were examining our china and noticing the different china patterns and trying to match up the right ones between the tea cups, the saucers, the teapots, the plates, the creamer and the sugar holder. Oh, and they've changed the creamer holders as well. They used to be fairly small, which made for some very funny moments at the last tea, but now, it's more of a regular size. Our perusal of the various china patterns also gave me the idea that it would be cool if they'd offer a tea patterned after the Mad Tea Party. Alice and the Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit would be the entertainment, the chairs and the china and everything else could be all different, and whatever other stuff I'm sure they could come up with. How much fun would that be?
