Comment on Toasty’s on East Ninth now open by in.dog.neato

Less than impressed. I do hope it does well, but the taste factor overshadows the novelty. Being a Dead Lot Veteran and somewhat of a Grilled Cheese Expert, I guess I was expecting something different. Perhaps stick with the basic and skip the...

Comment on Freediving for Agates by Jim Richardson

Agreed that they all look like agates when wet; I picked several stones I was certain were giant agates that only turned into perfectly pedestrian rocks when dry. That said, I did find a fairly decent one that I would like to have appraised on cam...

Comment on Perfect Coffee Shop: Beaner’s Central by ElPete

Congratulations Jason and staff. Well deserved indeed.

Comment on Freediving for Agates by ElPete

Did you find any good ones? I've picked for almost 20 years and still don't have the knack for finding them underwater. They all look like agates when they are wet, to me. Looks like fun, especially being upside down, picking agates.

Comment on Amity Coffee is open in Lakeside by bluenewt

I stopped in at Amity yesterday and again today. The coffee and hot chocolate are top drawer, the atmosphere is great, and the place was very busy. It was fun to see the mix -- older ladies, middle school girls, cool people. Also, the logo T-shirt...

Comment on Perfect Coffee Shop: Beaner’s Central by bluenewt

Beaner's has really good cookies. A lot of coffee shops have tired old nasty cookies, but Beaner's has large, delicious cookies.

Comment on Twins Bar re-opening? by Chris Pekkala

Yes, it's going to reopen as an upscale pool hall. The new owner was hoping to open in mid to late September.

Comment on Twins Bar re-opening? by Rij

I was wrong about the coffee shop. Now I'm hearing pool hall.

Comment on Gems of Itasca: The Bovey Edition by Paul Lundgren

It's a fun video, but the speakeasy escape tunnel story is more fiction than fact, according to <a href="http://www.scenicrangenewsforum.com/historians-doubt-speakeasy-film-segment%3B-producers-say-depic/" rel="nofollow">an article by Beth Bily fo...

Jason is a pretty awesome guy. Super positive attitude toward life and treats his customers very well. I had an amazing completely custom wrap a couple weeks ago. He was super excited to make something new and be creative. <a href="http://www....

Comment on Rail sessions across Duluth by Herzog

Like the name, it speaks to me. You say goodbye, I say hello. Hello goodbye hello goodbye.

Comment on Twins Bar re-opening? by Rij

My sources tell me that the building owner would like to open a coffee shop type place, perhaps as a "break room" for the nearby employees of the hospital.

Comment on Twins Bar re-opening? by jayinduluth

Drove by this morning and there is a large Coca-Cola banner/sign that states that something called the Break Room will be coming soon and it will be the place to enjoy a Coke (complete paraphrase as I didn't take a picture).

Comment on Toasty’s on East Ninth now open by lojasmo

I thought blandness was the hallmark of ranch dressing. As an aside, I stopped in to 8th St. video in Lakeside, and neither of the chuckleheads working there had ever heard of Steve. Scandalized.

Comment on Hey, sometimes a mushroom is just a mushroom by ElPete

My wife made bread yesterday, which unfortunately reminded me of this post.

Comment on Toasty’s on East Ninth now open by DECk37

I totally missed your statements about how it was. Where's the edit button? lol

Comment on Toasty’s on East Ninth now open by DECk37

They seem be doing some good business, the few times I've driven by there's always been a least few people in there. Has anyone tried them out yet? Maybe if they're real good we could get them on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives someday.

Comment on Red Plan versus Let Duluth Vote? by Herzog

Tim K, maybe you should call Johnson controls and let them know there's more contracts to be had here.

Comment on Hey, sometimes a mushroom is just a mushroom by Dorkus

You misspelled "Canal." On a somewhat related not, anyone cross over the Dong Bridge lately? How is the construction coming along?

Comment on What is Toasty’s on Ninth Street? by DECk37

I saw the WDIO news piece about it, drove by the other day, seemed like business was good.

Comment on What is Toasty’s on Ninth Street? by toyota200x

Toasty's is open! I checked out their menu while walking by their front window. They have a lot of sandwich options and they are served on 3rd Street Bakery bread. Gluten free options and vegan cheese are available. All of them sound good, som...

Comment on Red Plan versus Let Duluth Vote? by Ramos

From today's News Tribune: "Piedmont Elementary was expected to be overcrowded this fall, and Congdon Park and Lester Park soon after." Looks like we'll need another Red Plan soon, to address this problem.

Comment on DECC Casino? by Paul Lundgren

It seems the notion of a city-run casino in Duluth is at least temporarily dead. Councilor Hanson withdrew his resolution at last night's meeting, "to be revisited at a later date." <iframe width="480" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/...

Isn't it illegal to serve coffee in Lakeside? Oh wait, that's beer...

Comment on Hey, sometimes a mushroom is just a mushroom by moosetracks

It may be a mushroom, but it wishes it was a Menards sign or Fedo's last stand in Anal Park.

Comment on Amity Coffee is open in Lakeside by johnjaundice

I went to Casa on a few occasions when it was open in the space. Casa had one thing wrong I thought when I would go there - the acoustics. They didn't have anything on the ground or on the walls that absorbs any sound, just solid concrete. It was ...

Comment on One Book, One Community … One Local Author by tamara

I highly suggest voting for <em>The Lighthouse Road</em> by Peter Geye. It is an excellent book, it is set locally (northeastern Minnesota) and worth waiting for.

Comment on This week: birding, chili and trout fishing by Ramos

So the only people who will find out how APEX is "Driving Investment Throughout the Region" are those who are willing to shell out $20 to hear Brian Hanson give a talk? No wonder the guy makes $140,000 a year.

Comment on Chocolate Lab mix found in Lakewood by Rae

Did you have "Grizz" checked for a microchip? Good luck finding his owners, and thanks for being a good foster parent.

Comment on Amity Coffee is open in Lakeside by toyota200x

When did Casa close its doors? Looks like a nice shop.
