Take care of your feet and your feet will take care of you.
I’ve mentioned it before that a good pair of shoes makes the difference in the day. I’ve been stomping around San Diego in a new assortment of footwear in attempts to to put a finger on what’s best for me. From the beautiful benchmade Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot to Minnesota’s iconic Red Wing Shoe’s Heritage models 9111 and the 3140 Chukka. All Made In USA and crafted with pride by their respective companies, all individually unique in style and function. Proud of each one.
I’m working on breaking them and sorting out what’s best for me. Expect to see more of them shortly.
Sundays are the most laid back days for us. When we don’t go out for walks, or get an early brunch we just sit home and be a happy bunch (ha! see what I did there?). I hope you all had a very restful weekend.
Boots, handmade goods, skin care products, make up, a cat in a sweater and socks with Morrisey’s face? Yes. I recently cleaned my closet and got rid of a lot of stuff. I decided I would start making wiser decisions when it comes to buying clothes and shoes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a thrift store junkie and I hardly pass up a sale but damn, it piles up! I rediscovered some pieces, donated some more and in the end it honestly wasn’t about the amount of clothes I had, but the crappy quality that they were made of. The investment in some pieces is worth it, if you want quality products you pretty much pay for them. I don’t feel like I could justify paying 100 bucks for a single t-shirt, but there’s certain items like a coat, jeans, a bag or boots that if you pay a little extra, those pieces can last you for years. When you think of it like that, it’s worth it. Come on ladies, treat yo’ self.
What are some of the things YOU think are worthy of putting that extra buck in?
Yeast, starch, care, patience and hell of palate for flavor and taste can go a long way. All of those and more tend to be the basic building blocks for mouth salivating pizza and beautifully crafted beer. Blind Lady Ale House satisfies all of these and delivers it all in a “straight to the point” family friendly atmosphere yet still can cater to you and your friends looking for a late night meal at a local dive.
Let’s start with the basics.
The decor, the interior and the crowd are incredibly laid back and stuck in time as if ripped out from an episode of Cheers. After a few visits, you’re pretty sure everyone will know your name and your order! An open and laid back appeal that welcomes everyone to their wooden dining tables and benches (which one day we’ll own a set of our own), you walk up to counter, gaze over the large dusty chalk boards that hover above your head and give your order from their large rotating selection of hand made pizzas and craft beers. The prices are affordable and the beer selection incredible! Grab your well poured pints and find yourself an open table.
Our first visit to Blind Lady Ale House occurred when I had one of my best friend’s come to visit from Chicago. Chicagoans are extremely picky about their pizza! We ordered the delicious Chorizo pizza and a few pints from local breweries and found ourselves there chatting late into the night. It’s one of those places that’s fantastic for lunch, second lunch, dinner and any time you’re craving good pizza and beer. It’s a San Diego hotspot that we’ll proud to call locally own and we try to patronize as often as we can by filling stomachs with the goods coming of their kitchen. We highly recommend it if you’re visiting sunny San Diego or a home bound local looking to expand your late night options.
