The Grundy Museum’s Annual Tea is returning this fall. Originally scheduled as an in-person event on the museum’s South Lawn, this year’s event will be a Takeout Tea affair. It serves as a fundraiser for Grundy Museum and Library projects through the Grundy Foundation’s CanDoMore campaign. The final quarter of 2021 will focus on the campaign to fulfill funding for museum textiles and library technology.
Beginning Friday, Aug. 27, boxed Takeout Tea lunch packages can be purchased online for $25 with a timed curbside pick-up on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
On the day of the event, pre-purchased lunch packages will be distributed at the museum entrance by welcoming staff dressed in tea attire. Guests are encouraged to share their Takeout Tea pictures on social media from home, or wherever they are dining.
Returning with her tea fare is Bristol’s own chef Sue Duffy Arroyo. Grundy is also partnering this year with the Bricky Girl Tea Room in Historic Bristol Borough. Lunch includes a selection of tea sandwich quarters, a scone, sweets, condiments, a tea selection and a few surprises.
The river-level park of the Grundy campus will be open to allow guests to bring a blanket or chairs to enjoy their lunch. Restrictions may apply. The museum is encouraging attendees to order several lunches to have their own tea at home with family or friends.
