The Pagan Society feels that it has lost a dear friend this week. The Beehive Tea Room is closed for business, forever. President Muad’Dib spoke with the owner Lisa and confirmed that she has closed the doors to the tea room and filed for bankruptcy. Lisa said “I tried to see if I had any more tricks in the hat and I didn’t. I couldn’t afford to keep going so I had to close.” The society is deeply saddened to lose its meeting place. The society started meeting at the Beehive Tea Room in May of 2010.

The society formed in October of 2009 with the idea popping up in August 2009 to get a group for college pagans at the U going. So this cozy, classy, and wonderful tea room supported the society through all its up and downs to this point. “We wish we could save the tea room, it’s been our haven and our special place for over three years now,” said President Muad’Dib. From their own website “After ten years we have decided to give up the struggle and close our doors forever. We thank everyone who has shared a cup of tea with us over the years. Cheers!” (www.beehivetearoom.com). SLPS will be hopping around locations on Sundays to find a new suitable home.

So far the list of places visited have been Toasters, Bad Ass Coffee, and Cafe Solstice. President Muad’Dib is also considering changing the time to 12 or 1pm to accommodate the not so early morning crowd. Many factors go into finding a new place from location, public transit access, menu, and feel. Details to follow, stay up to date right here on the only Pagan blog of Salt Lake City!

The First Witches’ Tea of 2013 was a hit! Eight SLPS members and guests showed up for tea, talk and the tarot! Everything went well until the Beehive Tea Room’s credit card machine went down… then it was running to the ATM at Zion’s Bank for cash! Thankfully Rena Fairbrother covered everyone on hand who never carry the good greens. With the start of the semester tomorrow, SLPS hopes that as the months role by, tea will continue to grow and have more folks showing up to attend one of the best places in the valley!

The last witches’ Tea of 2012 went well! The number of regulars to the beehive tea room has grow considerably from a few to around eight to ten on a regular basis. We may have to move venues if the numbers keep up! Everyone enjoyed each others company, drank tea, ate lunch and were even serenaded by president Muad’Dib testing a potential violin he may purchase! Not a bad wrap up to a fun fill year. SLPS hopes 2013 brings even more opportunities for magic, community and tea!
