Hippi-tea hoppi-tea

WHEN you hear the words ‘high tea’ you might con­jure up images of English gar­dens, re­gat­tas in the sun­shine and para­sols by the lake.

You prob­a­bly wouldn’t think of b-boys, graf­fiti and gold chains.

The team from Perth bar The Ge­orge, how­ever, like to think out­side the box.

Putting a fresh ‘spin’ on things, they have cre­ated Hip Hop High Tea.

In a first for the venue, the event en­tails an af­ter­noon of clas­sic and new-school rap favourites from DJ Klean Kicks, a candy buf­fet of child­hood treats and a US-themed menu fea­tur­ing cherry scones with Hen­nessey cream, corn dogs with bar­be­cue sauce, margherita pizza, dou­ble dip dough­nuts and M&M cake pops.

Beverages in­clude Ly­chee Lime Pas­sion, Straw­berry Short­cake iced teas and spe­cially de­signed cock­tails, such as P.Diddy’s Tip­ple and My Milk­shake Brings All the Boys to The Ge­orge.

Guests will also be treated to a se­cret per­for­mance re­vealed on the day.

Venue man­ager Rochelle Mar­wick hopes the con­cept will be­come a reg­u­lar oc­ca­sion on the venue’s cal­en­dar.

“We do quite a few high teas here in­clud­ing hens’, moth­er­sto-be and birth­day pack­ages, and we thought this new idea would be a bit of fun com­ing into the silly sea­son,” she said.

“Ev­ery­one loves a DJ and hav­ing a bit of a boo­gie.

“We also think it will be a bit more in­ter­ac­tive and fun than your av­er­age high tea.”
