In light of the awesome weather we had last night my better half and I decided to go for an evening bike ride. We ended up down on that first beach on Park Point and sat there for awhile. When it got pretty dark we headed back and decided to stop at Lake Ave Café. Continue Reading
The Beehive Collective is a group of artists and storytellers from Maine who make collaborative, narrative graphics that focus on human rights, environmental issues and social justice. Go see ‘em at UMD this Thursday — they’re traveling the Midwest as part of a national tour. They do great work and you’ll learn a lot.
Renegade Theater Company presents Martin McDonagh’s “The Lieutentant of Inishmore.”
On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed an Irish Liberation Army enforcer’s cat. He’ll want to know who when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself … and someone is going to pay.
Trailer contains adult language.
Playing April 14-30 at Teatro Zuccone. For tickets, log on to teatrozuccone.com, or call 218-336-1414. Opening night reception on April 14, with food provided by Zeitgeist Arts Cafe.
TIME Magazine’s 2002 Person of the Year and FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley will be in Duluth tomorrow for 2 events:
At noon on the steps of the Duluth Federal Building, she’ll headline a Stand with Brad! rally to support accused Wikileaks whistleblower Pfc. Bradley Manning. The 23-year old Army intelligence specialist is facing brutal pre-trial punishment at Quantico for allegedly leaking information about war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
At 7:30pm in the Mitchell Auditorium at St Scholastica, Rowley will deliver the final lecture of the school’s Terrorism and Human Rights series, on the topic of Obama’s Response to Terrorism. Free and open to the public.
On Tuesday, April 12, at the Duluth Photography Institute (halfway between the Brewhouse and Carmody) I’ll be setting up to do a free portrait for anyone* who shows up between 5pm and 7pm.
The awesome point of interest is that I’ll be using a giant wooden camera manufactured about twenty years before the Hindenburg popped. It is guaranteed to be the most authentic modern vintage photo experience you’ll be able to find.
*Disclaimer: Please don’t bring five children and expect a whole set of family portraits. Everyone who you bring that you’d like a photo of gets stuffed into a single frame. If you do bring kids and have been feeding them sugar all day, expect blurry results. This is by no means an instant process.
When I was in kindergarten a stranger with one arm warned me sternly against ever using fireworks. But next week I’m turning 30 and apparently the terror of that day has receded in my memory because I’m ready to celebrate!
Where can a girl (responsibly and legally) get fireworks in these parts? A Google search turned up a number for an Arrowhead Fireworks (just rings), and I already tried that place in Superior that advertises the thrilling combination of fireworks, wild rice and lobster tails (they were closed for the month).
If you’re a whitewater kayaker or one of those dudes fishing ALL DAY LONG at the mouth of the Lester, you already know this: North Shore rivers have blown out their cover of ice and are running hard. Snowfall was well above average this year, and as the days warm up that snow has turned into torrents of milky-brown water headed down to Lake Superior.
The cost is $46.37 for general admission, as illustrated in the Ticketmaster checkout details below.
A limited number of Gold Circle reserved seats are available for $89.60 that include a reserved chair in front of the stage. Each chair will have a row and seat number designation. Ticketmaster has a seating chart.
About a month ago I was on a return trip from the cities in my 1999 Corolla. A quarter mile from Pine City, I break down only to find out that I threw a rod. That meant I had to go car shopping. Continue Reading
A class at UMD had an assignment to write a story on a person they never met. The students used social media, phone books, and approaching people in public to find their “Random Person.” Check out the final stories on www.lakevoicenews.org.

I always feel odd enjoying the Fitger’s Brewhouse. Nearly everyone under 30 I’ve ever known in Duluth, and some older, has worked for the Brewhouse empire. And empire is not a carelessly chosen word; the success of the Brewhouse, Red Star, Burrito Union and the new expansion into City Hall may be local in origin, but functions in much the same way Wal-Mart does: by grinding through an ample supply of tourism-economy low-wage no-benefit employees. I feel good about eating local; I wish that I felt better about the economic impact of that particular local choice.
That said, there’s a newspaper circulating in the free racks around town talking about how the Brewhouse supports local agriculture, and so I thought I’d give them a chance, again, in prix fixe, as part of the Greater Downtown Council’s Eat Downtown event. I was not disappointed.
The burger was hearty and filling, the fries and onion rings are almost a meal to themselves, and the German chocolate stout cupcake will bring Kate and me back in the future.
Really, really awesome. Whoever designed this Prix Fixe (and gave me a window into the local agriculure connection at the Brewhouse in that newspaper) has brought me back to their table.
