The Shan-Tea Art Shanty Project

Some Shan-Tea related media snippets that have recently been brought to our attention:
A photographer named Tom Nelson recently stopped by to take this amazingly detailed interior shot of the Shan-Tea. Thanks Tom. Amazing.

Hi ShanTEAers.... still am giggling over memories of marching across the ice playing On Wisconsin on the kazoo as we approached the shanTEA. Am still humming if not singing outloud the words to the Kinks tea song. Halleuja! As my fellow marcher and nightcrawler camp follower said later in the day--THIS is Minnesota, it's about community and creativity and not a sports team or a stadium or a convention center. Thank you for what you have done and are doing to build that community and give so many people wonderful memories HALLEUJA HALLEUJA HAVE ANOTHER CUP OF TEA!
ps will stop by with more firewood.!

Every successful man has several classic clothes, in the modern society; the business man in the sports fitness should choose appropriate shirts which is also very important.

I hold me beard to my face, my loves
Oh the smell! The smell!
Nothing quite takes your place, my loves
Oh I'm in hell! In hell!
