My sister just notified me that the Perkins on London Road is no longer open 24 hours! The choices for all-night study sessions someplace other than a dorm room seem to be dwindling. Does anyone have suggestions for someplace that is open all night? Do we even have any 24-hour restaurants left in Duluth?!?
So, we were going to go to the Emerson party again this year, but we heard that it isn’t happening. We also heard the NorShor isn’t doing anything. So, that leaves us looking for something else. Any suggestions?
A few days ago, my wife and I went to check out the new Clearwater Grille, in the old Lakeview Castle building up the north shore (Here’s the map). We always like to get out and see the new restaurants in town, of which there have been a lot over the past several years.
We were both very happily surprised when we got there. The new owners of the Clearwater Grille have done a lot of work and the bar and dining room are very nicely redone compared to the state they had fallen into over the past few years at this iconic building. The bar looks great; very classy. They replaced the nasty carpet with oak hardwood. It’s all been painted of course and there are new tables and chairs. They whole atmosphere is elegant without being pretentious, which some of the recent north shore restaurant additions are leaning toward. But I enjoy them also when I’m in the mood. This place is more approachable.
The journalism department at the College of St. Scholastica has recently launched a new site to showcase articles from student coursework and to give students the opportunity to hone their skills in the area of writing for the web.
Many of the pieces include a variety of multimedia including photos, audio, and video. They’ve already turned out a great variety of articles focused on the issues, events, and history of St. Scholastica as well as the greater Duluth community.
Take a look and feel free to comment on any articles that you find interesting. You can find it at the St. Scholastica NewsLab.
