    There will be no more of this, at least temporarily at Blur on Polk Street.

    Gotta serve up grubs with those suds.

    Blur, a popular bar on the popular Polk Street bar scene, has been temporarily shut down for violating its permit, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    The Alcoholic Beverage Commission suspended Blur's license for ten days because it wasn't serving food, the newspaper reported. Blur has a Type 47 license, which means that some sort of edibles must accompany the drink specials on the menu.

    An Examiner investigation revealed a happy hour replete with specials from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., but no food.

    The suspension will last until April 19 but could last longer unless Blur proves it has a full-service kitchen and operates as a restaurant and a bar, the newspaper reported.

    Bar owners could not be reached for comment.
