Why Holiday Tea and where: Now that it’s December, it’s time to get your Holiday plans organized. It seems December always creeps up on us. I’m usually sooooo excited about Thanksgiving (it is my FAVORITE Holiday, fitting for a Food Blogger I know) that before I know it, Thanksgiving has come and gone and December is here. What’s more festive than Holiday Tea at an iconic San Francisco Hotel The Intercontinental Mark Hopkins with beautiful views, gorgeous Holiday decor and yummy food. If that’s your cup of tea, read more about Holiday Tea here.
