tea 50Souvenirs final posterCreated in 2011 this event came to be as the Tea Dance as we knew it was changing. Less dancing more talking. FIPHPS decided to remind the Pines that the Tea Dance that is replicated in gay resorts all over the world began here in the Pines by then owner John Whyte. It was and still is the social hub where many come to meet and greet, however it was all about the dance. The place where you came to let go of the weeks issues and feel and move to the music. So we bring back the music that makes you remember, and the DJs that never let you forget that history was made here…
