MoVernie is on the MOVE again! This time, he and his crew got invited to attend the grand opening of a vintage boutique called the “Treasure Chest” located inside the Windsor Arms Hotel. As we know, Windsor Arms Hotel is famous for its TIFF InStyle Celebrity party. It is also famous for its afternoon high tea, the nice restaurant called “The Living Room” that has a nice outdoor yard to enjoy a glass of wine during warm summer days. To add to this solid Windsor Arms community, located at the corner of the lobby is where the new Treasure Chest Boutique is located.
Yorkville’s historic Windsor Arms Hotel has been undergoing an evolution over the past few years. During my first visit I feasted at Prime for a steakhouse experience, while months later I returned to a refurbished dinning room re-imagined as The Living Room.
When I was a child my mom bought me a tea set. I remember it being very special because it wasn’t plastic like the ones my friends had. Mine was white china and it was decorated with little pink flowers, ribbons and bows and even came complete with “silver ware”. I hosted tea parties, as all children do, with my “stuffed” friends but served orange pop and Chinese almond cookies instead of orange pekoe and scones.
