Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on St. Louis River photos from National Geographic by DaVe

What? The St Louis is only the 8th most endangered river? It’s time for some sulfide mining to elevate that ranking.

Well done, Carrie. Sorry, I was out for holiday.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

Carrie Rossow Boberg says: “Laundromat in Lincoln Park near the Harrison Community Center?”

In other words, the Wash Bucket.

Used to be the Anchor, but they fixed that.

Toms Burned Down Mens Room

This one from the men’s room at Tom’s Burned Down Café on Madeline Island might not quite qualify as graffiti, since it is obviously part of the intended décor.

From two years ago at Carmody … still a favorite.

Comment on Goodbye Jitters, hello Bakehouse by toyota200x

Wow, this establishment is making some delicious baked goods. On my bike ride home at I stopped in for a blackberry scone and a mini cinnamon rolls. The scone is one of the best I have ever had. Flakey and not overly sugared. I have had scones tha...

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by Paul Lundgren

PDD dropped the ball on significantly heralding the existence of Sclavi’s, but it has been referenced several times.

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by johnbeargrease

Scalvi’s? Originally opened in 2009? News to me. I third Special K’s suggestion. I haven’t eaten here (yet), so I can’t speak to the food or service. Those crucal factors aside, it seems like marketing is lacking. A few suggestions to consider:

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by Dorkus

I second Special K’s suggestion.

I was aware there was a business called “Sclavi’s” next to the Palace, but to be honest with you I thought it was a bar.

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by Special K

“Everything possible” except advertising apparently. Never heard of this place, and I drive down Tower a few times a week to get to the gym. I actually had to look on Google street view to confirm there was in fact another building next to the P...

Comment on Lollygagger Pale Ale: Bent Paddle and Loll Designs collaborate on new beer to support local bikers by Dave P

I was lucky enough to be in the tap room today when this beer came on line. Oh man … this is one for the ages, folks. It should be available in stores in about a week.

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by farnukem

Been there several times. The food is very good. Anyone who has thought about going should go, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Comment on Sclavi’s is on the ropes again by vicarious

When you have to beg for customers, maybe it’s time to close permanently? I feel bad for the owners, but there is something (location, product, management, etc…) that obviously isn’t working.

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by MK2

Thanks for the comment that if ANY trails are wet, (not just official COGGS trails), there should be no biking on them. My observation is that in wet conditions, bikers are coming to the unofficial trails and SHT trails behind my neighborhood (Hun...

Comment on Farley’s Grill in Downtown Duluth by Special K

Whomp whomp. One year later I was totally wrong and it looks like the downtown location is closed. Perhaps there truly is a curse.

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by StarryNight

I have contacted the city and my city counselor, “We can’t enforce something like that.” is the answer. I wondered if they could maybe put signs up (offered to put signs up myself under their direction) that would maybe at least say, No ATV’s al...

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by Paul Lundgren

Indeed, all of the above are everyday occurrences. Even worse, people drive trucks onto the DWP Trail and dump garbage. It will be interesting to see if paving the trail will get rid of a lot of the nuisance users or if the city will have to ramp...

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by StarryNight

That’s what I hear. These particular pictures are from Redruth St going East. Even though there are boulders blocking the entrances to the trail the ATV drivers are now driving in from above and below, making new trails of their own. They are a...

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by Paul Lundgren

The section of the DWP trail between Greene Street and Spirit Mountain is a planned part of the Cross City Trail and will likely be paved within a few years. There are many changes on the way.

Comment on St. Paul gets all up in Duluth’s craft-beer capital-proclaiming face by Ramos

I think we need to proclaim Duluth as the Hangover Capital of Minnesota. According to Business Insider, Duluth is the 6th most hungover city in the nation, and the only one in the top 25 from Minnesota.

Comment on Mountain Biking in Duluth When it’s Wet by StarryNight

Yes, the ATVs and mountain bikes are ruining the DWP. Not only are they riding on it when it’s wet, they are doing circle spins and ripping out small trees. Most recently, they have started going around the big mud holes they have created, hence m...

Duluth beer capital

Apparently the folks at Northland Beer floated this billboard idea by Visit Duluth a few months ago.
