    The Victorian house is appointment only; another one requires reservations because of their very limited seating and does not allow children under 10. But all them do high tea, because otherwise, how would they survive? Americans may drink enough coffee to support coffeehouses, but tea is our redheaded stepchild beverage. Ask anyone who has ever gotten a tea bag in lukewarm water.

    The $10 here does a plate of finger sandwiches, two types of scones with Devonshire cream and strawberries, something else I've forgotten and your choice of cakes. There's a $30 one that has a huge menu; I've never been there, but just looking at the menu for this month, I sincerely hope that those sandwiches are tiny. And all three that I know of have either an import selection or gift shop, too. The Victorian one has very fancy hats you can wear for your tea and encourages costumes .

    I have a significant hat collection, thank you. I don't need to borrow one, like some common plebe.

    May you go to tea on the same day as the Red Hat Society and be mocked for your plebian tastes.

    Things don't look too promising for a fancy tea in Omaha.

    I've got a teahouse across the street. The Zen Tea Service is a great meal deal. They also have an amazing selection of teas.

    Excuse me, it an indulgent dessert buffet!

    Prancer, the Victorian tea room with hats and costumes sounds hideous.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I think costumes for a school reunion tea is perfect. I'm coming as the Red Queen and there may be a certain amount of shouting "Off with their heads". Absolutely worth $70.

    Just remember that you can't eat any food you've been introduced to.

    I looked up the Mayflower since I'll be in DC for a week in June--to my surprise several other options for afternoon tea came up. (Still cringing. If I went to 'high tea' I'd expect heavy sandwiches and tea in mugs.) Their royal tea (w/champagne service) is now in the 40-odd range, and the prices at other hotels seem comparable. There are also tons of tea cafes, besides Teaism, which I remember being there. I'm tempted to try the Willard, since I've never been there.

    It's very popular for little girls' birthday parties and meetings of the Red Hat Society, and I believe there are some Victorian societies around here that like to put on their bustles and have a do.

    But the food is very good and if you want something quiet and private, well, it's just you because she only takes one party at a time. You can sit out in the garden, which is gorgeous in the summer, and sip your tea and eat your strawberries and cream, and wave away the hornets, and all seems right with the world.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
