Can you even believe tomorrow is December? We cannot.
But that's what the calendar man tells us. We have loads going on this month, let's get started, shall we? First up, the new place-
DRAUGHT BEER & SANDWICHES
3025 El Cajon Boulevard, just 3 doors east of 30th.
Have you been yet? Tiger! sports the same hours as BLAH-- Tuesday-Thursday we open at 5pm and close at Midnight (kitchen closes at 10) and on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, we open at 11:30 am and close again at Midnight with the kitchen closing at 10pm. Closed on Mondays.
The food? Well there is this giant wood fired oven in the middle of the room and with it, we make bread (all of of it in-house, fresh, daily) and oysters and a few other delicious things. The primary menu is Sandwiches- our take on the Bahn Mi, a Ham & Cheese with Egg and Bechamella, a Fried Polenta sandwich and more. Plus, raw and wood-fired oysters, soups and oh, some beer. We are leaning heavy on the drinkable beers, like the ones that maybe come in giant steins? Yes, we serve giant steins of session beers on Friday, Saturday & Sunday days for just $8 till 5pm.
That's one full liter of beer in a big fun glass for only $8.
This Thursday we are tapping Alesmith's Winter Yulesmith at Tiger! and calling it out here because it's delicious. And seasonal. And perfect for the slightly cooler temperatures coming our way tomorrow.
Every Friday until the end of the year we've got a glass giveaway at 11:30 am. Up this week? The gorgeous .4 liter tulip from Allagash, which will come to you for no charge with the purchase of an Allagash White (and maybe their Dubbel.)
And on Sunday, we are doing this vaguely late brunch-y thing by adding DOUGHNUTS to our menu, Sunday mornings only. These are yummy sugar-spice donuts (and tasty vegan ones as well) and we will have on hand a coffee beer of our choosing to compliment the sweet treats.
Have you seen the logo? We have just a few t-shirts and a couple hats left until the next time we decide to print them. They make fashionable holiday presents.
Finally, we never really officially announced our opening so stay tuned for some Grand Opening Hoo-Haa on December 16th, 17th and 18th. More to come...
BLIND LADY ALE HOUSE
This Friday's Progressive Cask is none other than Hangar 24s Pale Ale, a delicious drinker that we are quite fond of. That's $2 till 2pm (we open at 11:30) and $3 till 3pm or until we run out.
This Saturday we are gonna have at least one and maybe even two Allagash Flights over at BLAH. Which beers you may be wondering? Pretty much ALL of them. We have got limited quantities of most of their beers and will be serving them flight only on Saturday, from 11:30 am until we run out. Lunch anyone?
Last time we checked BLAH had Russian River's Damnation Batch 23 on, as well as the Bruery's 4 Calling Birds and Mission's Dark Seas, plus a whole host of other great beers. Have you tried any or all of those yet?
On December 10th Adams Avenue is having a holiday soiree of sorts - businesses up and down the street are lighting their lights and showcasing what's special about the holidays. We are gonna have ourselves a little TRUNK SHOW in the Hamm's Room from 3-8pm with a handful of crafty vendors, plus, our back stock of T-SHIRTS and a few other goodies. And we may, although we promise no one nothing just yet, have the new 2011 SWEATER TEE in that day, as well. More on that next week...

And we will have a lot of Belgian beer on to celebrate. If you have a young family and want to celebrate New Years but don't want the kids staying up till Midnight, this is the perfect time and place to bring 'em and celebrate. And then, and please take note, we are closing the kitchen at 9 pm and the whole place at 10 pm (last call at 9:15 pm) on New Years' Eve so that our employees can actually celebrate elsewhere. You can come hang out beforehand here, eat and drink and be merry and then celebrate the turning of the clock elsewhere!

And that's it for now, but New Years will be here before we know it and then it's 2012. Thanks everyone for coming out and supporting us, truly.
