Diamond Jubilee Weekend: Florida-style

On June 1, 2012 by admin

The UK is buzzing in anticipation for “the big weekend”; bunting on every street, road closures planned for street parties and fridges stocked with celebratory beverages. Our friends in Florida will be celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign with just as much gusto and British spirit – and no doubt the weather will be significantly better! Here are our pick of the week’s events:

1)The British-American Club Queen’s Jubilee Party: Saturday June 2nd at The United Cafe Bar & Bistro in Fort Myers.  What to expect: Afternoon Tea, an authentic English dinner, music & karaoke, a raffle with prizes and a champagne toast to Her Majesty.

2)  Jubilee Celebrations and Coronation Dinner: Saturday June 2nd at The Windsor Rose Restaurant & English Tea Room in Mount Dora. What to expect: daytime Jubilee events at the Tea Room and a Coronation Dinner from 6pm-10 pm.

3) Diamond Jubilee Gala hosted by the British-American Chamber of Commerce: Saturday June 9th in Fort Lauderdale. What to expect: black tie formal dinner with live entertainment and an open bar.
