Thursday, November 30th–Annual Holiday Tea
Afternoon tea is part of The Cliff Dweller’s history and a lovely seasonal treat. Come and enjoy this midday refreshment, complete with scones, small cakes, assorted sweets, savory finger sandwiches and fine tea. Engage in warm and lively conversation with fellow members and friends over a special cocktail. And thrill at a poem created exclusively for you!
Poems While You Wait is a collective of poets that bring in their vintage typewriters and produce poetry on demand. Three poets from the collective will engage with with us and, in a short time, create a poem for each of us.
Here’s how it works: Upon entering the Club, you will give your name to the poets and provide a “topic” for the poem you would like a poet to write.
(The topic may be specific or abstract, with as much or as little information as you choose. No topic is too big or too small, too funny or too sad, too silly or too serious). While you sip your tea, the magic will happen. At the close of the event you will be presented with a custom-made, one-of-a-kind poem to keep for yourself or to give away as a gift!
Gifted vocalist Jamie O’ Reilly will delight us with her musical stylings. And, our own Ed Torrez (CD’ 17) brings even more cheer as we gather around the piano to sing old familiar songs.
