Two people came for tea yesterday. I served lime ginger from Anaba tea room with Nikki’s cookies. My friend Ruth Treisman lent me her mother’s in law’s mother’s silver tea service so now Salon B is much more fully equipped for pouring tea. First, Dave Luhrssen came in. He is the entertainment editor at the Shepherd and the film critic. Many people probably don’t know that he has a master’s degree in history. He’s been writing about music and film in Milwaukee for at least 20 years. The next person who dropped in for tea was Andy Muchin. Andy is also a writer. He specializes in Jewish culture and arts. He is about to embark on a major life changing move to Jackson, Mississippi where a new job awaits him. He had just come from the antique center on First and Mineral where he was buying a few things for his new apartment, including a vintage chrome kitchen table and a black velvet painting of the Wailing Wall (of all things).
YOU are invited for tea next Friday (1 to 4 p.m. at the gallery).
