Comment on Mouse Season from Wildwoods by AliK

A snail is climbing up the window-sill into your room, after a night of rain. You call me in to see and I explain that it would be unkind to leave it there: it might crawl to the floor; we must take care that no one squashes it. You understan...

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by CJD

Funny, I was just saying the same thing a week or two ago! And I've always thought that the places that do have patios should invest in heat lamps. I would think it could extend patio season by at least a month on each end. Bars in Phoenix of a...

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by Cory Fechner

Heat lamps & fire pit would make it comfortable on those 60 degree evenings.

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by Cory Fechner

I think the fact that we have such a great focal point that is the Big Lake (aka Big Sexy as I call her) and many of the summer visitors to town are drawn here because of the lake, a rooftop bar with lake views could do well. I think the trick i...

Comment on Mouse Season from Wildwoods by bluenewt

I wondered about you when you told me never to leave a box of wooden, strike-anywhere matches lying around the house because the mice might get into them and start a fire. But your face was absolutely straight when you twisted the lid down...

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by Tiffany Venne

Most of the rooftop bars in the cities are only open in the summer. Many have different themes. Like Brits has (or at least use to have) lawn bowling. The Cafeteria has kind of a beach theme. Rooftop is different than balcony or deck. Yes similar....

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by Paul Lundgren

Mexico Lindo is not rooftop seating, it's a deck off the side of the building. Just as good, but not the same thing.

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by kerc

There's also the Mexico Lindo / Chi-Chis / whatever the name is. Let's talk logistics: brrr. It's damn cold out there a lot of the year.

Comment on Mouse Season from Wildwoods by udarnik

Smile your little smile --- take some tea with me awhile. Brush away that black cloud from your shoulder. Twitch your whiskers. Feel that you're really real. Another tea-time --- another day older. Puff warm breath on your tiny hands. You w...

No kidding. It has been absolutely gorgeous these last few weeks. This is why we live in Duluth.

Comment on Rooftop Bars in Duluth by Paul Lundgren

Maybe it's not too late to add a rooftop bar to the plans for the Maurices headquarters?

Comment on Duluth Target Discount Store opens in 1962 by GTR

What are those things in the top photo, above the store? Almost look like military trucks? Or? I have interviewed old farmers from the Hermantown area and apparently that location was a potato field at one time. Quite the agricultural area.

Comment on Home dressed as the White house for Halloween by Dann Matthews

Unfortunately we don't live in a ranch style house, so our roof pizza would only be visible via Google Earth :)

Comment on Home dressed as the White house for Halloween by Rae

Please tell me you have a pizza on your roof.

Comment on The mayorally proclaimed Perfect Duluth Day of 2014 by brian

I hate to jinx it, but since this mayoral proclamation, we've had a run of pretty fantastic Fall weekends.

Comment on Duluth Maker Space by TimK

Great space. Just shy of 10,000 sq. ft. Nice people- tons of potential fun! They were running a laser cutter and a couple of 3D printers when I dropped in to say Hi.

Comment on Home dressed as the White house for Halloween by Niff Bimrod

I'm working on a working replica of a meth lab in a tented house

Comment on Duluth Target Discount Store opens in 1962 by Shane

The store has not moved. It has been expanded and the entrance has been moved.

Comment on Home dressed as the White house for Halloween by Dann Matthews

I almost ordered a replica of that bear too. I've been thinking of adding an outlet to the wall, even though that reference is from another wall entirely.

Comment on Home dressed as the White house for Halloween by BadCat!

Nice! You should add a pink bear peeking up from the bottom!

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Ramos

Travis wins! This is under the bridge at Chambers Grove Park.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Travis Kaai

W 3rd Street bridge/ Chambers Grove Park/ Fond Du Lac, I saw this while fishing down there.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Ramos

Tischer Creek...no. Thomson Dam...no. Barrett, good call thinking of that tunnel, which I had forgotten about, but...no.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Barrett Chase

I'm going to guess the tunnel beneath Central Avenue at Irving Park.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

Heidi Bakk-Hansen throws out the guess of Tischer Creek on Facebook. I'm going to speculate even more wildly and ask if it's in the vicinity of the Thomson Dam.

Comment on Perfect Brewery: Bent Paddle Brewing by HoppedDuluth

Both worthy choices. With regards to potential factors pushing BP to 60% of the vote; rather than reach, as the post suggests, I would say its the quality, consistency, and comparative "sessionability" (if I can use that term). Again, happy to h...

Comment on Duluth Maker Space by birdsandboards

<em>Yeah!!!</em> This is a fantastic thing for Duluth. I really think we have the kind of community that can make something like this work. It is a great location and a great building with tons of potential. I hope we can all show our support so t...
