TEMPORARILY CLOSED

20 JULY 2020 – We are heading to the peak of Covid-19 cases in SA, with the 300,000 mark reached last week, and daily infection rates are still climbing.

We have to be realistic and now is the time for caution, and for us to protect ourselves as best we can.

I’ve decided it’s best for all of us – our staff, families, and our customers – to temporarily close the Blind Tiger for the next period. How long will this be? Honestly, I don’t know, but I think we will be closed for at least the next four weeks, and it’s anyone’s guess after that.

Now is simply not the time to be going out and socializing and I believe the most responsible thing we can do is close our doors temporarily. We will be back when this is over – and we will celebrate together!

I will be around during this time, so please feel free to contact me if you need anything. All the best and take care, Andrew
