Blind Tiger Ale House Opening Date - 3/15/07 (4pm)
From their e-mail on 3/10: Dear Blind Tigerites: I know it looks like we screwed up our application and pissed off the neighborhood, just so we could get our beer and wine license in time for our 11th anniversary on March 15th. But believe me, it was pure luck. Yes, it's true. The Blind Tiger is rising again. I can't really believe it myself. We had just heard our license wouldn't be granted until the Mets won the world series, so we were very surprised when our lawyer called with the good news. 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. Until then, get plenty of rest... Dave PS Our hours will be 4pm to 4am, seven days a week, until we get our staff together. Down the road, we'll be open for breakfast and lunch. We'll keep you informed. PPS On Weds we'll post our opening beer list, which should be pretty good...
