IMPROMPTU ART w/ MR. CHICKENS & ROBOTS – Edward Ubiera

After erasing our incomplete menu at the Inwood Tea Bar and Chess Lounge early in the week, I’ve been pressed to find the time to re-chalk our unabridged offerings list. Our neighborhood buddy and artist Edward Ubiera who you might remember from our Inwood Farmers Market and Wolverine 1000 Mile Collaberation T-Shirts stopped in this morning to check out the 1946’s Sebago Chukkas we posted earlier. He was feeling the creative vibe as always so we let him get busy. Although board space as limited he fit all our teas as best as possible and we plan on expanded to a full wall board soon so Mr. Ubiera can really get wild. Stop in soon to read our menu and try THE BEST TEA IN TOWN!

Look Under Your Door…

Always the tradionalists as we are here at Nostylgia we’re taking the advertising back to the good ol’ days before blogs, twitter and the rest were status quo.  When all you needed was a good take-out menu under your door and you were hooked.  Now, with the new and improved Inwood Tea Bar and Chess Lounge at Nostylgia we can make it easy for you and us once again. So neighbors, please keep an eye out under your doors for our newest tea menu and a coupon for a FREE small tea now circulating the area.  And neighbors, please be kind to the youngsters giving out the menus and refrain from throwing them out of your buildings. They mean no harm, only offering delicious tea and a menu printed on non wasteful recycled paper. Spread the love…love Nostylgia.
