Although this Groupon may strike some as out-of-this-world, we politely suggest that they may be exaggerating, and that this Groupon is simply very, very good. Still, Roswell, like its New Mexican cousin, has had its share of paranormal phenomena. In fact, every U.S. city named Roswell seems to have attracted weirdness over the years:
Roswell, New Mexico (1947): An experimental U.S. military aircraft collides with a purported ship of extra-terrestrial origin in the skies over New Mexico. When it becomes clear that the alien visitors wish to involve their insurance company, the U.S. reacts by the encasing the unsuspecting beings in a concrete bunker six miles below the earth’s surface, firmly telling all witnesses to “be cool.”
Roswell, Georgia (2007): The Keep Roswell Beautiful–sponsored Great Duck Race is briefly interrupted when Zebrahead guitarist Greg Bergdorf brings the colorful plastic ducks to life through the power of rock music.
Roswell, Ohio (1989–Present): Roswell, Ohio, is home to a nine-foot-high pot-bellied ogre named The Grobbler, who traverses the streets, day and night, devouring pets and pedestrians with abandon, unimpeded by the laws of man or nature, leaving a trail of putrid slime that neither dries in sunlight nor dissolves in rain, but instead criss-crosses the community as a constant reminder that the weak and infirm will never be safe from this mysterious and un-aging storybook beast. Otherwise, a very nice place to live.

About Roswell Teahouse
Stationed in an old house of the city's historic district, Roswell Teahouse looks and feels like a relict from the 1920s. But it's not just the appearance that takes guests back in time. For inside, the spirit of high tea lives on. Elegant trays support homemade desserts, scones, and lemon curd, all enjoyed by diners dressed in their afternoon best as they chat and politely arm-wrestle over cups of tea. The 100 different types of leaves hail from across the globe, steeping slowly in a cast-iron tea pot to maximize flavor.
For lunch, Roswell serves a variety of homemade and organic meals, including a Belgian chicken pot pie and green-apple tuna melt. Many of its offerings are designed to improve wellness, such as the beauty booster salad, which comes with omega-3 oils and vitamins.
