Default Britweek - Los Angeles

Saw this on twitter and went to the webpage.
Seems to be for a higher social circle than we normally hang out in but was wondering if anyone has been to any of the events? Is it a tad snooty?
I see they have something in the main street in Santa Barbara one weekend - it is worth a trip out (apart from the Boots and shortbread samples)?

"Secret location - Invite only"

My guess is that we won't be in on the secret!

I googled it and looked at their site - then went to the photo's from Los Angeles 2013. It looked like about 20 people. My some-what-cynical breakdown:

Approx: 15 bizarrely dressed individuals: American anglophiles
Approx: 5 people in jeans and tshirts: the Brits

Whenever I see Jags being sold as British, I just have a vision of the dad from Goodness Gracious Me, blurting out "Indian!"
