Participating restaurants and businesses have special discounts to audiences of the Jane Austen Literary Festival in March, especially if you happen to be in Regency period style clothing. Ladies, gather your plain gowns with lace accents and sheer shawl. Men, don't forget your top hat and cravat if you would like to get these discounts.
For the special "tea" experience, you can head a block from the Trailhead to Vianne's Tea House. This tea spot at 544 Girod Street has a full meal in three courses which costs about $29.99 plus tax. Next, if you're looking for something budget-friendly and forgot to wear your costume, the Rusty Pelican is the right place for you. In addition, Maxein's Coffee House has a special drink named after Mr. Darcy at 115 Girod Street. If you're in the mood for fish and chips for $7.99, head on over to Louie and the Redhead Lady's on 1851 Florida Street.
The Das Schulerhaus Gift Gallery and Christmas Shop (528 Girod Street) celebrates everyday like a holiday. Costumed guests receive ten percent off their purchases. Next, if you venture to Mae Antiques and participating dealers, costumed goers can get twenty percent off. Across from the Northstar Theater, Susannah Elle Designs has ten percent off to costume festival goers with wire wrap jewelry.
