Opening night of Reasons to Be Pretty is Thursday, June 2, at 8pm. Stick around after the show for the after party in the Zeitgeist lobby featuring food from the Zeitgeist Cafe and music by Mae Martin. Then, stick around for a free Long Form Improv set from the newly formed Long Form Team of Renegade Improv.
And if all that wasn’t enough, opening night is pay what you can! Only have $1? That’s fine! Feel like the show is worth $100? We will totally accept!
But come out and celebrate with us. Whatever you decide to pony up to see Reasons to Be Pretty also gets you free food and music, plus a free late-night improv set. Because we think you are all awesome and we like hanging out with you.
NHS is looking to pay some artists up to $750 for each design if they’re selected. We’re looking to get some bike racks, public benches and trash cans. All of these will be placed along Fourth Street between Mesaba Avenue and Seventh Avenue East. More information can be found by clicking here. Where would you like to see a bike rack, bench or trash can in this area? I can think of a few…
This is my first post on PDD, although I have been an avid fan and reader for quite some time.
I am posting today to inform the PDD community of an issue that concerns area nonprofits and people with disabilities. Like many of you, I have noticed these green clothing collection boxes all over town. I also wondered who was responsible for placing them and where the clothing and items donated were going. As the boxes declare, “Recycle Locally” and feature the United Cerebral Palsy foundation’s logo on one full face of the box, I assumed that the boxes were put out on behalf of a local CP nonprofit, in order to raise money for their cause.

This is the final week to have lunch at the View Restaurant in Duluth’s Secondary Technical Center. The photo above is the view from my table last week. The View has kind of been one of Duluth’s little semi-secret treasures — the food is great, the prices are very affordable and the view is similar to the old Buena Vista Restaurant … but slightly to the west.
The restaurant is run by culinary arts instructor Glenn D’Amour, former chef at Grandma’s and Kamloops. Table service and food preparation is provided by Duluth high-school students in the culinary arts program.
Because the STC/Central campus will be closing as part of the Duluth School District’s Long-range Facilities Plan, the program and restaurant will be moving to East High School in the Fall. No more view.
If you want to check it out, you need to call for a reservation, pre-order your food and be ready to be seated in the thin window of noon to 12:05 p.m. Reservations are taken at (218) 336-8975 ext. 4054. The restaurant is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday — then it’s done for the semester; and done completely at this location.
Who amongst us does not enjoy sitting around on a Sunday morning, reading the New York Times and leisurely paging through the Book Review section?
In case you haven’t picked up your copy of the Times at Mount Royal yet, here’s a book review you can read to keep your morning on track. It’s of Safe from the Sea, by Peter Geye, which just won the North East Minnesota Book Award.
SPOILER ALERT: The “Freighter” bar is actually the Anchor. And the topless bar “Tallahassee” is actually the Saratoga. Oh, and the old man dies.
Tonight at Beaner’s Central at 8pm for $5, Toby Thomas Churchill and Excuse Me, Princess are playing, and it’ll be more fun than a barrel of monkeys, soooo… you should go for it! Nothing wrong with a rock and folk show on a Saturday night, yo.
