Té Lovers Newsletter - Live Music and Open Mic
How is summer treating you so far? Alternating between sweltering, humid days and getting belted by thunderstorms, right?! We've noticed it's been raining a lot lately. Not that we're complaining ... saves on having to water the lawn ... so what's with these sprinkler systems that run right in the middle of a downpour?!! ::grin::
Live Music This Saturday - June 30
Continuing our World Music nights on Saturday, this weeks's event is featuring live Jazz & Blues music, from our very own House of Tea Jazz band (yes, we have some very talented employees!)
Come around 9 pm, and stay for a chill evening.
Open Mic Night - July 7
Back by popular demand! We hosted a very successful Open Mic Night last summer, but never got
around to a repeat event. By popular request, we are starting Open Mic
Nights again; they'll be hosted the first Saturday of the month,
starting on July 7. We'll provide the PA system and mics, you provide the entertainment :)
year's Open Mic was full of acoustic guitar performances, poetry
readings, story-telling, and diary readings (yes, bring those
embarrassing moments out of the closet!). Be creative, but of course
keep it concise -- don't hog the mic from the next person in line!
To sign up for Open Mic, visit the Open Mic page, (http://www.tehouseoftea.com/Events/openmic/) and click on the Add Comment button. Or, sign up at the tea house; there will be a sheet on the table near the door.
How 'about another fun Tea poll?! This one asks, "If you could be a famous tea person, who would you be?!" Take the poll at: Tea Takes #2 (http://www.tehouseoftea.com/polls/poll2/). Don't like the options available in the poll? Well, go ahead and click Add Comment to make your own answers. In other words, tease us with your suggestions!!
Our Japanese friends tell us, "back home, when it gets hot in the summer, everyone eats matcha shaved ice dessert". Mmmm, sounds delicious. So, we've bought a shaved ice machine, and will soon be experimenting with some home-made shaved ice dessert recipes featuring our delicious teas. Talk about a delicious and healthy way to cool off! Coming Soon.
