A lazy crazy Saturday

... calls for a nice glass of port.

As I entered my last frenzied 24 hours in San Diego, we sipped on a nice mellowed 2005 Mayo Zinfandel port. This was our last bottle of this port, and while I think we may have enjoyed it more last year, it was still a nice evening sipping drink.

We bought our bottles of this port on a visit to Napa, when Bbq Jr. was just 8 months old. Fitting that we should finish the last bottle just before departing California.

Blind Lady Ale House

We're down to our last few days in San Diego. And as such, we're doing our last visits to our favourite San Diego spots. Zumbar. Pizzeria Bruno. And Blind Lady Ale House.

Blind Lady is named after an old window blind store (run by a lady, apparently) that occupied the space where they are currently located. They serve beer. And pizza.

The beer is excellent and varied. Like Bear republic apex double IPA.

Or the lovely raspberry dessert beer St. Louis Framboise.

They used to get their hands on Knight Salumi products for appetizers. These days, we satisfy ourselves with marinated olives.

We always went to Blind Lady for the toppings. Their thin-crust is not my favourite, but the toppings... top-notch toppings. Cheese pizzas seldom get me excited, as commodity cheeses are generally not delicious. But the 4-cheese pizza at Blind Lady includes a delicious blue, and 3 other mystery cheeses that are, well, tasty.

But the pièce de resistance is the pizza that taught me to put egg on pizza. Bacon and egg pizza. Ridiculous. Soft yolk. Tasty bacon. And green bits that are tasty. Yum.

If you're in San Diego, hit Blind Lady Ale House as soon as you possibly can. Best pizza in town.

Farewell, Blind Lady.
