All things “Downton Abbey”— from ‘20s tunes to exotic teas — will be featured as Del Mar Community Connections holds its annual spring tea on Wednesday, April 23, at St. Peter’s Parish Hall, 324 14th St., Del Mar.
The 2-4 p.m. event includes music from the “Downton” era performed by entertainers “Janet and Jay” and piano music provided by Lori Ritman, who also serves as chair. Light refreshments will be served, and teas poured by classy gentlemen as “Mr. Carson” imitators. Prizes will be awarded for the best Downton ensemble.
So if you know the answers to trivia questions such as “was Alfred applying to culinary school or law school,” or “did Jack Ross sing ‘April Showers’ or ‘Swanee?’” you’ll feel right at home with other Downton Abbey aficionados at this spring DMCC event.
Call to reserve a spot at 858 792-7565.
