“At Short and Stout, It’s Time for Tea” and for people who would like to learn more about tea, we hold monthly Tea Talk events in our store on the second Tuesday of each month. Past topics include Tea Basics, Green Tea and Black Tea Twists. Each tea talk is only $5 and includes tastings, discussion and Q&A. To register for these fun and educational talks, give us a call at 518-456-TEAS (8327).
In addition to our monthly Tea Talks, we offer a variety of special events including live music, open mic nights, rotating art displays, open house tea and pastry tastings, holiday-themed events and monthly specials, knitting club, and more. We would also love to host poetry readings or other hobby meet-ups so stop in with your group!
If you are a budding musician or just someone with musical talent who loves to play or sing, we provide the venue; you provide the sound! Invite your friends and family and bring the fun to Short and Stout Tea Shop. Acoustic, keyboard, flute, saxophone, banjo, accordion, harp, harmonica, acapella, vocals…all are welcome.
For those with artistic talent, our walls are a blank canvas that we are thrilled to provide on a rotating basis to local artists on which to feature their work. Most items are for sale so customers may sip and browse and buy the works off the wall if they choose. Each artist will have an opening night reception with a selection of sweet and savory pastries so their family, friends, and the general public may enjoy tea and snacks while admiring the work on display and asking questions of the artist.
Local musicians, artists, and photographers may contact us for more information on how to be featured at Short and Stout Tea Shop.
If you have an idea for a special event, please let us know. We are interested in hearing from you, our customers, for ideas on how to make Short and Stout Tea Shop your neighborhood hang out.
