Hi all: A spot of bad news - It seems Alio Lounge isn't open for
Afternoon Tea on a Saturday.

As an alternate, how about Yueh Tung, just across the street, upstairs
at 126 Elizabeth Street?  Spacious, and they ARE open for Afternoon Tea.

*What* : Afternoon Tea
*When* : Saturday, 13 September 2014 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm
*Where* : Yueh Tung, 126 Elizabeth Street, Toronto, Ontario
*Website* :
*Map* :
*Register* :

If anyone has another preference, let us know!
