tea at the drake in chicago has been a dream of mine (especially around christmas!) ever since i first laid eyes on the location. (if you have ever walked into this room- you know what i am talking about.)
i must say- there is something incredibly enticing about a room surrounded by people chatting, a harpist playing, cakes expecting to be eaten & sugar cubes waiting to be stirred.
so alas, my dream was made complete on one of my last days in the midwest- we did indeed dine at the drake. i was embraced by so many dear friends that I do not see too often enough. we had a wonderful time laughing, exchanging stories, and sipping on the yummy tea.
(i suggest the pear and caramel).
so proud of jill and jori hailing that cab.
