We found an organic baker, Oh My! Bakery in Glendale, and we are now serving afternoon or some call it high tea. We have a full afternoon tea that is a real meal or a mini tea that is sweets only. Both afternoon tea choices come with an organic pot of tea. Really excited to see if people respond to this & want to see if we get any feedback on doing afternoon tea in downtown. It's a bit different than what the Biltmore offers, so not sure if that is what people are looking for.
Tonight there is another show at the Orpheum so will have a later closing than usual to accommodate the crowd.
Also on a crazy note, we were recording when the slow dude (a guy who walks around downtown extremely slowly, more like a shuffle) passed by our storefront. We had him coming by between 3 & 4pm and then he was not seen for 3 weeks. Now you may think we just missed him, or he came at another time, or we were busy when he walked by, but let me just say that he walks so slow, it takes almost 5 minutes to clear the front, and we think one of us would have seen him. Plus we were on the look out to record his time, so we thought maybe something happened to him. As the weeks passed we were getting concerned about his absence. Well happily he returned on Wednesday & everyone who works at siptea let out a cheer! So he is alive & well and still walking slowly around downtown.
