The annual Fort Lauderdale Gay Tea Cruise traces its origins back to the hard-partying colonial administrators of French Morocco. Around teatime, theyd gather for posh dances set to live orchestras. The tea dance spread around the world, and today its a gay custom. Anyway, whats more American than a Tea Party? Boarding begins at 2:30 p.m. and the yacht will be on water from 3 to 6. Parking at the dock (near the SE Third Ave. Bridge, Fort Lauderdale) is free. Tickets cost $25 with reservations, $30 without. Call 954-649-1107, or visit www.gayteacruise.com.
