2006_06_food_blind.JPGAfter a long-term struggle with the local community board over their liquor license, the Blind Tiger will be opening just in time for their 11th Anniversary. Per owner Dave Brodrick's email:

The draught system is going in, we just ordered fifty kegs and I don't know how many cases, Louise is firing up the kitchen, and Carl Uhlman is flying back from Hawaii, having had to cut his vacation short.

So on Thursday, sometime after 4 pm, if you get a chance, stop by and raise a beer for the new Tiger. She was a long time coming, but she's finally back. And hopefully better than ever.

I want to thank all of you for your support during some very difficult times. Your emails and best wishes kept us going. I can honestly say we wouldn't have made it without you. As far as I'm concerned, it was never the beer that made the Blind Tiger special; it was always the Tigerites. I can't wait to see everyone coming through our doors again. On Thursday, at 4 pm, when I'm standing there with a beer in my hand, surrounded by the friends I've made over the past 11 years, it will all have been worth it.

We're looking forward to helping them celebrate. The resurrected Tiger will be open 4pm to 4am, seven days a week, and breakfast and lunch are not to far off in the horizon.
