So SoCal / the best...the beautiful...and the bizarre

tea cellers

May 14, 2000|LESLEE KOMAIKO

As if the threat of radiation wasn't bad enough, a recently posted sign at Brentwood's Zen Zoo Tea reads: "Feng shui master's warning: the use of cellular telephones inside the teahouse is damaging to our feng shui. If you must make or receive a call, please do so outside. Thank you."

Alfred Ritter, owner of the teahouse, likens the sign to a warning on a cigarette package. "The intent is to make people more aware, because it does have an effect on the environment around us," he says. "If someone's on their cell phone, they're not where they're supposed to be."

How have customers responded? "Many people have thanked me for putting up the sign," Ritter says. "People have asked for copies. I should probably copyright it."
