Tugs try to free the freighter Socrates from the sandy shallows of Park Point on Nov. 22, 1985. The ship had run aground several days earlier during a strong storm. Crowds of onlookers flocked to Park Point to watch in the days after the ship got stuck. (Photo by Charles Curtis / News-Tribune)
Duluth Pottery and all the Trade and Commerce Marketplace folks would like to invite you to three days of open house, music food, and holiday sale! Dec. 3 and 4, 10am – 7pm, and Dec. 5, 10am – 5pm. Gallery receptions Sat. at 5pm.
One way to feel good about taking part in the hyper consumerism of the holiday season is to shop locally. That’s why your pals at Perfect Duluth Day have again compiled a gallery of gifts produced by the hands and brains of your friends and neighbors. Click on the pics for details about each item.
Just like last year’s guide, the fabulous showcase below is by no means comprehensive. List your own suggestions in the comments.
To Brian Barber of PDD for helping with our posts and donating artwork. To Claire for the books – and all the SA donors – Sharla, Joan, Diane, 4th St Lube, everyone. To Steve O’Neil for helping in the kitchen!!! To the Spin Collective for wowing everyone. To the fabulous musicians Terrrol and Jane, Dirty Horse, Rachael Kilgour and Too Many Banjos for knocking us out with their music. To everyone who came and donated, who ate spaghetti and bought silent auction items.
We raised $3,000 for the Kozyites and a great time was had by all. Thanks so much to our community. — Carla

Welcome to Perfect Duluth Day’s complaint department, hyperbole center and personal grudge factory. This is a post created for all the Internet trolls who are eager to bog down threads on this website with combative diatribes. It’s also a place for people who can’t stop themselves from responding to those trolls and suddenly become, quite frankly, more annoying than the trolls.
Has one of your comments been removed lately? Did you bitch about it in the comments? Was that comment removed too? Well now you can bitch about it again, here! And it probably won’t be deleted this time!
Although PDD has detailed policies about what types of posts and comments are permitted, the moderators have created this page — where almost anything goes — for two reasons:
1) Let’s face it, a lot of people thrive on bickering and need a place to blow off steam.
2) Most people can’t stand bickering and would like fewer distractions from the other threads on PDD.
So here it is, an open forum for exaggerations and personal attacks. Have fun. (Or should we say, “Go shove it up your Minnesota-nice-hole, you jerkwad”?)

Hi, Naomi Yaeger-Bischoff here. It’s soon holiday gift-giving season, and also the time of year to get calendars for next year, so it’s time for me to put an official post on Perfect Duluth Day about a personal project I put together to showcase my photography, the Everyday Duluth calendar. (You could say this is a shameless plug.)
