Billy Corgan Opens Chicago Tea Shop, Plays Smashing Pumpkins Songs All Day

From Ology:

Yesterday afternoon, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan kicked off the grand opening of his latest non-wrestling commercial venture: a Chinoise tea shop called Madam Zuzu’s located inside a former post office in Chicago’s Highland Park. “I’ve never had coffee. I’ve always hated the smell,” he told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It was always tea. I was a pretty typical kid, though. I grew up drinking Lipton. I didn’t know there was other tea to drink.” Decked out in retro 1930’s furniture and artwork, Madam Zuzu’s will be a “step up from the grab-and-go Starbucks experience,” Corgan promises, a place where people of all sorts and types can come to talk, check out all sorts of speakers, poets, practitioners, performers and musicians… and, of course, grab a cup of tea.
