Teany

If you like Moby's music, or if you like good vegetarian food, or if you like reading books with an offbeat sense of humor, then Teany is a book for you! I really enjoyed this book. What does that tell you about me? ;-)

Teany itself is a tea room, of the modern style. It's in NY (tea-ny) and it's small (teeny) - and thus the name. Moby is co-owner, with his ex-girlfriend Kelly Tisdale. The book chronicles the beginnings of the tea room and leaves us with all kinds of interesting tidbits and recipes. My friend Amanda is a fan of the "top-secret chili". I am looking forward to someday trying the chocolate and green tea pudding (with soy or rice milk). The lavender lemonade is just about the prettiest cold beverage I've ever seen!
If you've read the book, I'd love to hear your opinion!

This book looks fascinating. I'll have to request it from the bookmobile. Thanks for the recommendation.

I've read *parts* of this book, and while I enjoyed its offbeatness, I have to say I found the font and light colors very hard to read. But then I have 44-year-old eyes and you don't, so enjoy!

I have always wanted to visit Teany in NY! Moby is an interesting guy. His "Hotel" album is one of my all-time favorite CDs. :)

Well, I didn't know this, but my husband (the music buff) says he did. But he never bothered telling me! If (when!) we ever make it down to NYC, we'll have to put it on a list of things to do.
