Save the date! The Gilded Age Tea at the Hotel Viking returns!
The Newport Public Library will welcome guests to their third annual Gilded Age Tea at the Hotel Viking, One Bellevue Avenue, Newport on Saturday February 20th from 2-4 p.m. This traditional English tea includes specially prepared finger sandwiches, assorted scones served with lemon curd, a selection of freshly baked tea breads and chocolate truffles which will be complimented with a glass of champagne and one’s favorite tea.
Proceeds from this event will go toward the on-going refurbishing occurring within the library with emphasis on the young adult and children’s areas. The library, is not a city department but an independent not for profit organization. Although generously funded by the city and state, in order to meet the myriad of needs of its patrons, it must reach
out to the community for additional support.
The afternoon will afford one the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for gift certificates for One Bellevue, a refined hotel eatery which features breakfast, steaks and favorite New England sea food dishes. Vintage attire is welcome but not required. As space is limited, reservations are encouraged by calling Kevin at 401-848-4813. The $28 per person includes the gratuity and complimentary parking. Please, only one reservation per table. The tea is a perfect way to conclude one’s participation in Newport’s “Winterfest” activities.
