Billy Corgan opens a tea shop in Highland Park (which he’ll be performing at Thursday)

Madame ZuZus

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, who has been living in Chicago suburb Highland park since 2003, has now decided to open up a tea shop there called Madam ZuZu’s at 582 Roger Williams Ave. The shop opens this Thursday (9/13) at 11 AM and in honor of its opening, BIlly will be peforming acoustic sets throughout the day and there will be free tea. A press release states, “The teashop is designed to serve as a social hub for the community, blending tea drinkers with the arts. Drawing from Corgan’s love of music from the 30’s, Madame ZuZu’s is a Chinoise inspired teahouse found in Paris during this period.”The shop’s hours are 8 AM – 8 PM Tuesdays through Thursdays, 8 AM to 10 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, and closed Mondays.

Yes but what about free wifi?

As previously mentioned, the Smashing Pumpkins will kick off a tour soon that hits the Chicago area on October 19 at the Allstate Arena. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
