Madame Zuzu’s completes its first year

October 28, 2013 by  

Madame Zuzu’s Teahouse in Deerfield, Illinois is officially a year old, as of late last month, with anniversary celebrations including performances from various musicians.

Matt Sams, a guitarist who performs regularly at Madame ZuZu’s ran through a playlist of songs by famous artists, like The Beatles’ ‘Norwegian Wood’ and ‘Free Bird’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Another regular at the teahouse, Anastasia Royal, played classical piano for those who came out to have tea at the location.

However, the night would not be complete without a performance from the owner of the teahouse and former lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan. Other famous attendees of the anniversary party were composer Frank McNulty and photographer Art Shay.

Corgan talked to the audience about starting a business in Deerfield and what plans he has for the teahouse. Right now, Madame Zuzu’s has three new and exclusive teas out. One of them is aged in an oak barrel like wine.

The venue has a table with a few antiques for sale and the teahouse plans to expand its selection and offer art to purchase as well. Additionally, there may be radio play performances at the teahouse in the near future.

Theater performances can draw a big crowd and offer a boost in business, and printing companies that produce flyers could take on the job easily and gain the trust of the business. The benefiting companies may use them again in the future for tea labels and general promotionally flyers.
