Denver Yelp Elites and their guests were most definitely on time to the Denver Botanic Gardens this past Saturday for Yelp's Mad Hatter Tea Party! Crazy hats, a queen that didn't take off anyone's head, and even a Cheshire Cat put in an appearance for the 2 hour event.
As yelpers arrived to the event they traveled through the lovely Gardens into a private area where each person selected their own vintage tea cup to drink from. MODesTEA created three refreshing iced tea concoctions to fill those cups: The Alice (Sprightly Green Tea), The Madhatter (Crazy Good Cocktail Snowflake Tea), and The Cheshire Cat (Tulsi Ginger Orange Tea) – all with or without gin or vodka depending on the drinker's choice.
The Hey PB&J truck rolled in with samplings from their entire menu including the fan favorite Thai pb&j, made with spicy peanut butter, orange marmalade, coconut, crushed peanuts, and fresh basil. Plus, the Denver Pie Truck delivered an assortment of hand pies and mini pies to satisfy the sweetest tooth there. All of this was topped off with croquet lessons and games from Jiminy Wicket and the Denver Croquet Club as well as tours of the Denver Botanic Gardens over the afternoon. As Rebeca R yelped, it was "Another amazing Yelp event, providing culture, referencing classic literature, and inspiring us all to dress up." The best kind of Saturday!
