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!
