Our last Tea on the Terrace is Thursday, Aug. 23, with musical guest Paul Kurucz—a Port Alberni favorite. What a great way to end the summer: spend a few hours listening to great music under the canopy of trees, sipping tea and indulging in a decadent slice of chocolate dipped strawberry shortcake. Tickets are still available and are only $15. Call 250-724-3412 to reserve your table.
