Though the psychedelic Cheshire Cat may remain in Wonderland, those with an appreciation for all things Alice related can join the in trippy fun thanks to the 2nd Annual Massive Mad Hatter Tea Party. The first day of August in 2010 welcomed the first iteration of the celebration, complete with ?splendiferous? hats, over the top costumes, copious amounts of tea, and musical performances by Raya Brass Band. So successful it was, that Alice in Wonderland supporters are set to brush off their decorative toppers for a second tea party to toast to Lewis Carroll?s imagination! Seeing as New Yorkers are wont to go all out for events, it?s clear this festivity will have all the elements of last year and more. Revelers embodied all things Alice, from the hookah-smoking caterpillar to the distinguishable Queen of Hearts with her pursed lips, causing passersby to do double takes, as if they fell down the rabbit hole into another world.  Don?t be late for this year?s tea party!
