•From when we used to stage elaborate soirees for our teddy bears to college, where tea was a Friday afternoon fixture, we’ve always been suckers for a good tea party. There looks to be a great one at 2:30 at UpStairs on the Square, where Tracy Stern and Christie Matheson will be discussing their new book, Tea Party: 20 Themed Tea Parties with Recipes for Every Occasion, from Fabulous Showers to Intimate Gatherings. The tea costs $28 and you may reserve by calling (617) 864-1933 for reservations. [UpStairs on the Square]
