Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on Graffiti in Duluth by SAXON

This is a hell of an old post, but, as a graffiti artist living in Duluth, I think we should start a petition to re-open the Graffiti Graveyard to the public. I have snuck in illegally, but I don’t want to keep having to fear getting busted by the...

Comment on For the Little People: The mysterious miniature village on Madeline Island by Mark Bial

Where can one locate the art by Lisa? I can understand why Roe would not want others to give out directions to this hidden gem. Saw it when I was young, it is a fantastic find.

Comment on R.I.P. Verne Gagne by Zedhead

Gotta love today’s society. Everyone has to blame someone for anything.

The Guy did a lot of good for a lot of people.

RIP Vern

Comment on Thank you, Mayor Ness, from Homegrown by Herzog

The only person who could’ve spiced that up more is Karen Sunderman.

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by davids

Justin, please send me an e-mail at davidsyring @ yahoo.com. I have a potential solution for your accommodation needs but would need to discuss your specific details more. Would require you be willing to be “out in the country” a ways (about 12 mi...

Comment on Cabin season approaching– Free ice packs? by emilymoesewco

We love Plated. My husband has discovered that he really likes to cook because of Plated. We pay from $60-$80 a week, depending on what we order. I couldn’t turn down the cornish hen with morels this week, so it was $80ish. I love that I don’t ha...

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by Lesterlynn

I’ve heard that Cape Superior Inn (north of town on the scenic highway, next to the Clearwater Grille) offers monthly rates. You may also want to try the Androy Hotel, Superior Inn, or Bay Motel (all in Superior).

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by Paul Lundgren

The Wabegon Supper Club — on the edge of town, technically outside Duluth by a few hundred feet — has cabin rentals that would probably suit your needs perfectly, but cost more than the desired amount. I think they still have $1 beers on Thursdays...

Comment on The Best of Clyde at the 2014 Homegrown Music Festival by Herzog

The Snakes were down in Winona this weekend and saw an actual rock band that blew their top called the Traveling Suitcase. This was before they improperly fingered the nice bar owner as the switch pulling culprit. New shit has come to light man!

Comment on R.I.P. Verne Gagne by waferdog

Lest people create a snap judgement based on the previous two posts, it is probably important to note that he had dementia at the time of the incident:

“On March 12, 2009, the Hennepin County Prosecutor’s office officially announced that Gagne wi...

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by Justin

Thanks for the responses gentleman. I am certainly aware of the inherent challenges and figured I’d throw it out to the community for a bit of good luck. Nothing comes to those who don’t try.

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by brian

I had a similar situation when I first moved here. Was buying a house but couldn’t move in for a few weeks, and was coming up from Mpls to work during the week, back to Mpls on weekends. The apartment places wouldn’t even call back for a short-ter...

Comment on Recommendations on short-term accommodations in Duluth by Paul Lundgren

There probably isn’t much advice anyone can give on this subject. A short-term lease at $375 a month is generally only possible through good luck. You might have to meet the right person at the right time to pull it off.

Comment on R.I.P. Verne Gagne by Paul Lundgren

Well, yeah, but let’s not let one measly homicide tarnish a man’s reputation.

Comment on R.I.P. Verne Gagne by TimK

He also killed a guy in the nursing home where he was living.

Comment on Cabin season approaching– Free ice packs? by BadCat!

I’m more interested in Plated… How much does it end up costing you? Also, feel free to send a referral code to my email -- I may check it out, so you should get credit.

Comment on Redstone damaged by fire by Paul Lundgren

Update: The Duluth News Tribune reports the Redstone has been sold to a group of unnamed investors.

Commercial real estate broker Greg Follmer confirmed Friday that the building at 1509-1511 E. Superior St. has been sold by longtime owner Howard...

Comment on Duluthians conquer Switzerland’s “Wall of Death”! by Dave P

P.S. Attention Grammar Police: “plumbs” is a pun!

Comment on Duluth Band Profile: Christine Hoberg by CLeTa

Christine is an amazing person and artist. Thanks so much for shedding light on her lovely talent.

Comment on Baptism River “High Falls” Aerial View -Tettegouche State Park by bluenewt

I appreciate Cory’s attempts to be considerate of other people when he’s out flying his drone, but I agree with Aldin that drones have no place in parks. You can’t be certain no one was there. For me, a big reason to go to the woods is to get away...

Comment on Baptism River “High Falls” Aerial View -Tettegouche State Park by runningman

Did the kite have a video camera on it? Or did the kite have electrical motors on it? IMO, the sound of a child’s kite flapping in the wind does not equal a flying electric surveillance vehicle. I understand how cool drones are to those that enjoy...

Comment on Baptism River “High Falls” Aerial View -Tettegouche State Park by Paul Lundgren

I agree with Aldin. Once I was at the beach and this kid was flying a kite and it was flapping in the breeze, creating noise and covering one 700-millionth of the sky. I had to leave. Very upsetting stuff.

Comment on Video Archive: Red Star Lounge opens in 2005 by Herzog

And there’s Raymond at 00:23 opening the dialogue with possible guitar lessons back at his place.

Comment on Gunflint Trail Traffic Stop by Fitz

Man, did I ever need that laugh. Thanks!

Comment on Baptism River “High Falls” Aerial View -Tettegouche State Park by Aldin

Do I see anyone? No, it’s a forest, visibility is a bit limited, I wouldn’t expect to see someone hiking along a forest trail in your video due to trees. Perhaps people saw your drone zipping around and decided to turn around and enjoy another p...

Comment on Selective Focus: Bed(s?) by Herzog

I’ve seen a lot of campuses in my time, and UMD has to be thee absolute worst case of nobody hangs out anywhere out of doors, because why? Because the shuttered architects who designed it back when had never seen the light of day and couldn’t ima...

Comment on Selective Focus: Bed(s?) by madscientist5580

I meant to send an image I took just for this theme, but I got distracted by the weather…as did the bed-seekers in the photo.

Comment on Denfeld, It’s In My Soul – Music Video by MomAH

I love this. Thank you to the Denfeld community for sharing this with us.

Comment on Denfeld, It’s In My Soul – Music Video by Richard K

Alright, I’ll admit, I’m a fan. Good song, not an easy thing to choreograph. And a Mayor Don Ness cameo is always a plus. Nice work, Denfeld.

Comment on Duluth Handyman Recommendations by janamidwife

I’m always pimping out my husband. He’s a good human. He even fixes stuff at home!

Comment on Baptism River “High Falls” Aerial View -Tettegouche State Park by Cory Fechner

@Aldin.. Do you see any people in this video? No. We are very conscientious of our surroundings when we fly and specifically fly during days and times when no one else is enjoying the natural landmark we are shooting.
