November NYC Meetup Alice's Cup (November 6th @6pm) UWS

So I was “leafing” through Nicole’s blog this morning and found her review on Alice’s Tea Cup. After getting over the fact that I hadn’t heard of this place I realized it might be a fun location for a meetup. I double checked and thier kitchen is open as long as they are with plenty of savory items to enjoy. There are three locations I am open to any of them but may be partial to the upper west side location. So, how does this sound and what dates might work for most?

Thanks for reading! I want to go to this place even more now since I was only able to grab a scone and cup to go when I visited. My schedule is crazy but once we have a date I’ll definitely try to shuffle things around. Every other Wednesday I would be able to get there by 5:30pm so that might work if everyone else is available.

Wednesday is a good day for me!

So which of the first two Wednesdays in November works? I’m good for both. :)

I’m good for the 6th :)

Great. It looks like November 6th at 5:30? on the Upper West Side.

Could we make it 5:45? Otherwise I can just come late.

Let’s make it 6. 5:30 is pushing it for me too.

I’ll always look for an excuse to go to Alice’s Tea Cup! It’s a lot of fun! The east side one is really close to my work, but I don’t mind going over the west side. The food is scrumptious! The tea is hit or miss depending on which server makes it and the storage procedures of each location- they like to display/store the teas in clear glass jars.

Most weekends are booked up for me in November, so I’d prefer a Mon-Thur night after work. The first two weeks are best.

I recall the UWS teas being stored in tins (at least the ones behind the retail counter).

I’m up for this – either of the first two Wednesdays in November would work for me. I’d vote for the UWS location.

OMG yes. I love Alice’s Tea Cup and will use literally any excuse to go there. West Side is better for me. I can get there from work in half an hour.

November 6 at 6pm is good. I have clients coming in at 4pm, but if they come on time I should be done by 5:30pm (hopefully earlier but I don’t want to count on it).

Yay!

Great. We’ll see you there!

We should probably make a reservation to make sure we get a table. How many do we have? I think I counted 5 or 6.

From their site:
On weekdays, any Alice’s Tea Cup location can take a party of any size. We do need at least 24 hours notice for reservations.

All reservations with 6 people or more receive the Mad Hatter. Both are an Alice’s twist on a traditional afternoon tea.

The Mad Hatter is the adult tea service and includes scones with jam and cream, assorted tea sandwiches, desserts and pots of tea. This is $37 per person.

If you have a party of 6 or more guests, and choose not to have the Mad Hatter, you may walk in; walk-ins are based on a first-come, first-serve basis. If we are running a wait, we can put your name on our wait list and take your number to call you when your table is ready.

Their menu has a lot of choices so I’m inclined to say we might want to take our chances with walking in so that we can order however much or little we might like:

It’s a moot point, since it’s too late to make a reservation. But I agree with your inclination to walk in. Can anyone get there a little early to put us on the list in case there’s a wait (or snag a table if there isn’t)?
