Park Ridge's own TeaLula participates in the town's "First Friday" event by displaying the artwork of architect John Mackin and offering free "take home" samples of Mackin's Blend, a strong blended black tea as well as a chance to sip first flush Darjeeling at the tea bar. Spend $10 or more, and you'll get 10% off your purchase, too!
Incidentally, TeaLula's website is up and running, selling their great teas via mail order for those who can't actually make it into the shop. Interested in getting a free pot of tea on your next visit? Like TeaLula on Facebook! You can also follow the activities of this wonderful suburban gem on Twitter.
First Fridays offer folks the opportunity to check out some of Park Ridge's amazing little shops and get some great deals. Check out the event by visiting its website to learn more about the many participating businesses. TeaLula is located at 11 South Fairview Avenue in Park Ridge (about a block from the Metra train station). Need more information? Give them a call at 847-823-TEAS.
