On June 30, the historic Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs will remember the sinking of the Titanic with a commemorative dinner featuring the Titanic’s first class menu and a guided tour of that fateful evening with historian and great granddaughter of Margaret Brown, more famously known as the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown, one of the Titanic’s few survivors and a former guest of the Hotel Colorado.
Helen Benziger (the granddaughter of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”) will host Afternoon High Tea in the Hotel Colorado’s Molly Brown Suite, on June 30, at 2 Bells. A fun and instructive occasion, Benziger will give guests a tour of the suite, which she helped decorate with memorabilia, a brief history of high tea and a lesson in high tea etiquette. Along with sipping tea, guests will sample an array of traditional accompaniments, including assorted finger sandwiches such as roast beef and horseradish cream, cucumber and cheddar, smoked salmon and chive crème fraiche; scones with jam and clotted cream; and fresh strawberries. During tea Benziger will offer details and answer questions about her great grandmother and her account of the Titanic. Afternoon High Tea is $17 per person; guests may call 970-945-6511 for reservations.
