Well folks, with the barriers we have overcome these past couple weeks, when everything looked so grim, we are absolutely thrilled that we have come out ahead. Once again, thank you to so many in the community who came to bat for us, supported us and beleived in us these past weeks. Hope to see you out at The Blue Moon very soon and thank you.

Reviews

Cannot Recommend This Bar

Someone writes, December 22, 2008: This may well be the filthiest bar I've ever set foot in. Fisrtly, the place literally stinks of, well, I'm not sure. There are mouse (rat?) traps strategically placed. Secondly, most of the bathroom stalls have had their doors ripped off. Beyond that, the walls have been punched in, and the place is rarely cleaned.

Additionally, there's no consistency to the place. Punk-ish/alternative bands, clearly aimed at non-regular customers, are becoming the norm. Personally, I can't believe the place is still in business.

[If anyone wishes to disagree with this assessment, by all measn do so. Please do not merely edit out this comment, as it is, from the standpoint of many I've spoken with in the community, an accurate one. If Blue Moon wishes to attract customers, it must do so by providing a venue that (a) is clean, (b) allows women to use the bathroom in a stall with a door on it (crazy concept, I know), and (c) provides entertainment that includes the community for which the bar was created.]

The Blue Moon is now closed permanently.
