Wonderland Weekend

MARCH 29TH, 2010

Wonderland Weekend

To celebrate the release of Alice in Wonderland, there has been all matter of Alice-themed paraphernalia. But we think the best way to honor Lewis Carroll’s classic is with a very merry un-birthday tea party.

Hotel Vancouver has rejigged its afternoon tea to be Wonderland-inspired. Playing cards are strewn across the table underneath your tier of treats. The standbys we love, like melt-in-your-mouth scones and Devonshire cream, are still on the menu, but the dessert tray now boasts flamingo-esque profiteroles and cupcakes. And then there’s the lovely little discount you receive for bringing your movie ticket stub or wearing a pretty party hat.

An all Alice afternoon this Easter weekend will solidify your station as Coolest Aunt Ever.

Mad Hatter’s Tea (adults $36, children $16) runs until April 30, 2010 at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, 900 West Georgia St., Vancouver, 604-662-1900,
