No information shown about the closing of the venue on the website:

At least you can visit the Botanic Garden nearby after noticing it on site...

With SP 5.0, his solo album, and the wrestling bs keeping him occupied you can pretty much guarantee that zuzus is closed forever. It probably never turned much of a profit and became a place for sad machines to creep on the man. He’s probably glad to have the monkey off his back.

Highland Park's Ravinia district revival efforts full of renewal, setbacks
Quote:
Then came news that Billy Corgan, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman, was closing Madame ZuZu's, the teahouse he opened a few doors east of the barbecue eatery in 2012. Zuzu's had evolved into a cafe and art gallery, with vegan sandwiches and pastries, smoothies and fair trade coffee on the menu board.

"We are forced to move for various reasons which involve tenancy, but certainly nothing to do with the strength of the business (which thanks to all our great customers has been robust and steady)," Corgan wrote when he announced ZuZu's March 18 closing on Instagram.

In the post, Corgan said, "We hope to open a new location very soon, remaining in Highland Park if possible."

Ravinia-area resident Jill Cunniff is among those who will miss ZuZu's.

"The place had a really cool vibe to it," Cunniff said. "We used to play cards there, canasta."

Merlo's, a brick-oven pizza and Italian restaurant across the street from ZuZu's, also recently closed. But Viaggio, a rustic Italian restaurant located on West Madison Street in Chicago, will be opening its second location in the Merlo's space in late April or May, according to Viaggio's management.

The last WPC hat! Still available from a special "thirty days deal" at his road trip a year ago.:

#THIRTY DAYS DEAL! WPC HAT + BILLY'S FAVOURITE TEAS!
$49.99
Don't miss out on this great deal! Try 2 of our newest teas at Madame ZuZu's! The ROSE NOIR and VANILLA ROOIBOS are Billy's new favorites!

And rock your WPC hat from the #THIRTYDAYS videos!

LIMITED TIME OFFER! DON'T MISS OUT BEFORE ALL OF THE HATS GO!



Doesn't look smart, Corgan's remaining online tea shop, with items declared sold out since months, items not sold since months and no really new products.

Will he at least sell some signed EP's from his shop this year...?

Declared analog fan Billy Corgan liked cheap Stanton imitations of the legendary Technics 1200 with digital USB-connectors. Throw this Judas in the Ivory Tower!

Will the smell of tea spirit soon be exchanged by a next fast food pizza-gate?

Sadly Smashing Pumpkins fans don't look like that anymore.... Now they're old, weight piling on as they're desperately trying to hang onto their youth. It's a sad scene.

Can someone post that "Sad Machines" meet up photo to better articulate what I'm describing?
