INVITATION GET LOST IN THE POST?
Join us for a British Royal-Tea, Big Screen TV’s, Bass Ale and Bobbles at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans

Did your invitation to the Royal Wedding get lost in the post? Is it too pricey to fly to Times Square to watch the live simulcast? Look no further than The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans on April 29, 2011 to watch the wedding of the century beginning at 5:00 a.m.. Prior to heading out to the Fairgrounds for the 41st annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival, stop by the Davenport Lounge on the lobby level. Royal watchers can enjoy a customized British Royal-Tea or partake of a Bass Ale accompanied by Fish and Chips. Patrons can win a Princess Di inspired CZ sapphire necklace or a Royal Four Hands Massage in The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New Orleans.

British Royal-Tea:
English Breakfast Tea
Earl Grey Supreme Tea
Scones with Lemon Curd, Devonshire Cream and Jam
Tea Breads, Fruit Tarts and Tea Pastries
Sticky Toffee Pudding
British Pub Offering:
Bass Ale
Fish and Chips

Giveaways:
Princess Di inspired CZ sapphire necklace
Royal Four Hands Massage in The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New Orleans

After watching the wedding of the century and partaking of authentic British fare in The Davenport Lounge, patrons may find themselves speaking with a wee bit of an accent all jolly good day. We raise a cup of tea and a glass of ale to our allies, despite the fact that we showed them who was boss in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. As John Lyly (1578; Renaissance English poet and playwright) said, “All’s fair in love and war.” So, cheers to Prince William and his bride, Catherine Middleton!
