Comment on Where in Duluth? by Dave P

Downtown mosquito farm.

Comment on The NorShor Experience: A Strip Club Retrospective by rev

Man, I really wish I could get into the Norshor to take a few photos before everything changes. Maybe it’s too late. Like everyone else here, I spent a lot of time there, 1999-2005 or so. So many memories that I wish I could congeal into a series...

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Bret

Yup. Roof of the Norshor Theater and Temple Opera bldg. All soon to change. I’m nostalgic and sneaking around the old haunts.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

This one is too easy for those in the know, yet is unseen by most people.

Comment on R.I.P. John Berquist by jeffreyham

Here’s John’s band the Moose Wallow Ramblers “I Like it in Duluth.”

Comment on Selective Focus: Andy Miller by treepeople

Andy is easily identifiable as one of Duluth’s most talented photographers with an important ethos to share with us all.

Comment on Duluth Graphic Designer Recommendations by Dave P

Rick Kollath, Kollath Graphic Design. Terrific logos, illustration, and design.

Comment on Johnson Appliance and TV Center Ghost Sign by Paul Lundgren

Boreal Safe

Thom Donaldson of Boreal reports the finding of this old safe in the building.

“Literally weighs a half-ton or more, and was unfortunately empty except for a bunch of old hand-written receipts from the mid-1950s,” Donaldson writes. “Seems the bu...

Some individuals/small shops, with lots of different styles. I know I’ve missed some.

Comment on Coffee Communication by Molly McLaughlin

I enjoyed “sweet” coffee drinks until I got a job at Caribou coffee. We were required to taste our blends, black, so we had the knowledge of how to describe them to the customer.

Well this turned me into a coffee snob! I am so picky when it comes ...

Comment on Duluth Graphic Designer Recommendations by aluminumpork

We have had an amazing experience with Michael @ Sek Designs. Very friendly, creative, and collaborative individual. We had some great whiteboard sessions for our iOS app icon and overall app feel that produced results that we are very happy with....

Comment on The NorShor Experience: A Strip Club Retrospective by Bret

I’d love to hear more stories about these buildings. I’ve had an office in the Temple Opera Building for over 15 years. I’ve been through the basement, on the roof, and the green room at the Norshor. All very interesting. Until this week my of...

Comment on Maria Bamford: Lady Dynamite of Duluth by Chris

I just binged seven episodes … I like that Wikipedia classifies it as “comedy surrealism.” I couldn’t agree more. ++Good. She wears a Duluth is a cool city T-shirt.

Comment on Old Casino Signs by Paul Lundgren

… and eight months later the infamous sign is part of a music video.

I thought about swinging by and picking up the sign back when I saw the original post. I had no idea it was this large.

Comment on Who won Homegrown 2016? by justin.fure

Definitely the best performance of not only the year but if the century!

Comment on Maria Bamford: Lady Dynamite of Duluth by Brian Barber

I’ve watched two episodes. It’s pretty funny. Raunchier than I expected, absurd, and all over the place, but that’s what makes it work.

Comment on Maria Bamford: Lady Dynamite of Duluth by Niff Bimrod

I’ve been watching it. It’s dark, edgy … kinda like me! I don’t see some of the content going over so well, though. It will be interesting to hear what others think, not that I care.

Comment on Video Archive: Charlie’s Club Fire of 2006 by Paul Lundgren

Charlies Ashtray

Addendum: I recently came into possession of this old ashtray, which almost certainly must have come from Charlie’s Club.

Comment on Devil’s Kettle Falls Drone Flyover by Herzog

That is the crazy part. Dye, floaty things, none of it comes out in the lake. GPS would loose signal. When I was up there last time it was bigger than I remember as a lad. But you know the natives tossed a number of folks in there, enemies or what...

Comment on Devil’s Kettle Falls Drone Flyover by todobrillante

Is anyone aware of what research, if any, has been done on the pothole? Has anyone ever dropped some GPS/altimeter linked devices in to see where they go? Or even just some sticks painted brightly so they’re clearly distinguishable if they pop up ...

Comment on Coffee Communication by David Beard

Between 4 and 5 a.m., my grandparents would wake, walking downstairs from the attic bedroom they slept in, inside my great-grandparents’ house. They were in their late fifties, early sixties. Grandma worked as a school cook, and so she needed to b...

Comment on Nominees for Best New Restaurant Poll – 2016 by Paul Lundgren

True enough, but we might also say Toasty’s isn’t new, it’s a second location. Or we might say VN Coffee House isn’t new, it’s a new name for the old Vietnamese Lotus Inn.

So, there are clearly some points of contention, but our thought is that t...

Comment on Parking Crunch in Canal Park by Special K

I’ve taken to parking for free at the Rose Garden: either along London Road or in the lot between it and Valentini’s. It’s just a quick jaunt on the Lakewalk from there to the Canal.

Comment on Parking Crunch in Canal Park by Karasu

Endion still had a good price for parking last summer (was it 25¢ an hour, or not quite that good?) — have they changed the rate there this year? I haven’t parked there yet since tourist season started. [I sure would like to see some spots in that...

Comment on Parking Crunch in Canal Park by TimK

When I visit Canal Park, I have always found a place to park that involves generally the same amount of walking that parking at the mall requires. Paying for parking is part of the deal with having a car in the first place. I’ve never NOT found a ...

Comment on Parking Crunch in Canal Park by kerc

I could tell you the secret, but then I’d have to kill you.

I think since whoever is in charge of parking gave a bunch of parking to the big employer down there, there is no amazing parking option. And I’m bitter over that because, well, there are...

Comment on Parking Crunch in Canal Park by girlfromnorthcountry

For any event at the DECC, downtown or Canal Park after hours, I park at the Holiday ramp, walk through the skywalk, and leave after the ramp stops charging (usually 6-7 pm, unless the Bulldogs are playing a sold-out game, then the ticket-taker st...
