Find the Leprechauns like this in our Leprechaun Hunt!

We’ll learn about leprechauns and little people. As always, conversation over the teacups is accompanied by scones, savories, and sweets, enhanced by select teas.  “Bread and butter, or cake, milady?”

This tea will have 2 special features!

  • We’ll savor a short reader’s theater offering of one or two scenes from The Importance of Being Earnest, (subtitled “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People), a delightful mock of manners from that most Irish of raconteurs, Oscar Wilde.
  • In the true tradition of Carlingford Mountain Ireland, we will be having Wisconsin’s 1st Annual Leprechaun Hunt.  Find your own leprechaun to cheer your home!
