Alice in Wonderland tea parties all the rage as Mad Hatters become the new Mad Men

Alice in Wonderland tea parties are the new Mad Men cocktail parties. Toronto’s Four Seasons is throwing one such event this weekend, mirroring similar ones in Chicago and Los Angeles. The buzz for the upcoming film even prompted the Calgary Herald to run a how-to piece on throwing a Wonderland event, and the Vancouver Sun, no doubt experiencing Olympics withdrawal, is calling Alice the new black. As for the Four Seasons tea party, the menu is entirely predictable: raspberry jam and cream cheese pinwheels. No word yet on whether opium will be served as a digestif, though it certainly seems appropriate.
