So i will need to re-review this place in the future. I went on a monday night which normally i guess they are closed. They were open but not serving food. I think it was some sort of art opening. The space is awesome. The beer selection didnít tickle my fancy but was more than adequate (15 mostly san diego specialties.) Food is supposedly amazing but they werenít serving that night. staff seemed friendly and knowledgeable. This is more of a restaurant then just a beer spot.

First off, there are two things I really hate about this place. They open at 5pm. I mean really 5pm? Come on, 2 or 3 or something. Second, there is no parking and I mean zero. Maybe 3 spots within a block that you have a chance in hell of getting. The positives, the beer selection is solid. Ambiance is very nice, but no TV. Havenít had the pizza but the saladís good. Service was hipster.

BLAH is growing on me. At first I wasnít that impressed, still not a big fan of their pizza but this place has character and good beer. Plus theyíre about to start brewing on a very small scale and THIS is what Iím most looking forward to. The entire place has a history as the bar, wall, stools and tables are all recycled from somewhere. Tap list is good, although I wish they wouldnít sometimes bury the best beer in a flight of 5 beers. Anni party was fun and itís also a family oriented joint. Good beer, good place to bring smaller kids, although Iíd avoid the place with kids after 9pm. I know I donít watch my mouth when itís that late. I continue to hit this place up in the North Park area as a must-go-to. If only I drank more! Canít wait to try the new beers!

Iíve only had the chance to visit this place once so far, and itís a shame because I live relatively close by. Inside is an open and clean setup, so it doesnít feel crowded, until you order your beer and find that thereís not an open table in sight. We were lucky and found a group ready to leave just as got our beers (I had Allagash Curieux and Lost Abbey 10 Commandments that night). I canít comment on the pizza as it was too late to order any food, but their menu looks awesome. They also have the game "Apples to Apples" which is the funnest game ever and not many bars have so, props! Overall: Clean, friendly service, good beers on tap. Return: Yes. #49 on 03032010. DG.

Went here during SD Beer Week í09. Lots of great stuff on tap, although it was a bummer that a lot of the better kegs kicked before I got there (around 10pm). The place is also ridiculously small, but they keep it from getting too packed by not letting too many people in. The downside of that is that you might have to wait in line outside. I had to wait, and even my "Donít you know who I am???" trick didnít work on the guy at the door. Finally I got in and liked what I saw. Great beers on tap: AleSmith, Port/Lost Abbey, Alpine, Russian River, etc. I ordered an AleSmith Nautical Nut Brown and a Lost Abbey Devotion Ale, which were only about $4 apiece if I remember correctly. Also had a pizza, which was above average but not great. The crowd is a fun one. Next to us was a pack of cougs in their mid-30ís, who my buddy once removed (i.e. a buddy of my buddy who is not necessarily a buddy of mine) spent most of the night hitting on. Having a serious girlfriend myself, I wasnít able to partake in this cougar hunt. Oh yeah, and this is listed as "Blindy Lady," but Iím pretty sure "Blind Lady" is the real name.

Visited a few weeks after opening. Canít really say I was impressed on my first visit. Decent ambiance resembling an old, refurbished warehouse. Finding a table was a serious waiting game. Service at the bar was pretty good, but table waiting seemed to take much too long. Good tap list, with lots of local and west coast beers, with the likes of Alpine, North Coast, Alesmith, and Port Brewing. Pizzas are very tasty, made with fresh ingredients. Goes well with a tall pint. Hopefully the service picks up before my next visit.

I got an opportunity to visit the recently opened Blind Lady this afternoon. Upon first entering I was very excited to see a nice open space. Off to the right was a chalkboard with current beer offerings. We stood in short line, place a pizza order, and then sat and waited. As I sipped my Allagash Curieux, I admired their unique decorative style. The giant Hammís sign on the west wall was cool. I then stared at all the great beer offered. The food arrived and was great. Thin, crispy crust was incredible. The toppings were very fresh. I wanted to go for my next beer, but was in a rush. Iíll be back often and Iím sure Iíll get the chance to go up and down that beer list. Overall, Blind Lady was impressive for only having been open just recently. I think they are a very welcomed addition to the beer rich 30th Street area.

Good mix of well priced local brews, a few other domestic micros, and fancy imports. Pizzas are great, Ceaser Salad is a fave. Laid-back ambiance goes well with S-D, but I think they should expand as soon as they can!

Shouldnít really be classified as a bar, its more restaurant than bar. Vibe is what this place has, as well as an always decent and eccentric tap selection. The pizza hasnít really impressed me thus far, Iíve had 3 different pies so far...but to be quite honest, pizza doesnít usually impress me to begin no loss there. First beer was introduced today...the automatic, which was nice. Definitely will be a regular hang out for me, much more comfortable setting for me than both hamiltons, toronado, obriens, and neighborhood
