B-SIDE: Arizona Inn, 2200 E. Elm St. Tea for two, and two for tea--if elegance is your cup of tea, the Arizona Inn offers it. Between 3:30 and 5 p.m. daily between Thanksgiving and mid-April, high tea is held in the library, a beautiful and cozy room. Although the tea is held primarily for hotel guests, the inn accepts a limited number of outsiders with the fine taste and social graces to call a week in advance to make a reservation. The fine china polished silver, delicate pastries, finger sandwiches and intimate but refined atmosphere fulfills and surpasses every real or fantasized girlhood tea party. We still haven't been able to get the crook out of our pinkie fingers, or overcome the urge to wear fancy hats and discuss Victorian literature over a steaming cup of Earl Grey. Two for tea--can't you see how happy we would be?
