Comments for Perfect Duluth Day

Comment on The Serenity of Freediving Lake Superior by Eddy Gilmore

Now that’s a man who can hold his breath! Nice…

Comment on Where in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

That clock isn’t seeming familiar, but the wall looks like China King Buffet.

Comment on Updated concept plan for Lake Superior Zoo by Fitz

I can’t wait for the Porcupine Raptor exhibit. That sounds like one badass animal.

Comment on Where in Duluth? by DECk37

The entryway to Azteca’s Mexican Grill?

Comment on Where in Duluth? by ewesterl

I really feel like that is @ the China Cafe on London Road…

Comment on Northern Waters restaurant open on Woodland Avenue by Paul Lundgren

PDD apologizes for falling asleep on that one. Edits have been made to the story to indicate the restaurant is on Woodland Avenue in the Chester Park-UMD neighborhood — not to be confused with the Woodland neighborhood.

(And by “Woodland” I mean Morley Heights doesn’t abut Woodland Avenue.)

Thank you Kodiak!

(BTW, Morley Heights doesn’t abut Woodland either, up near Oxford St.. Its western boundary is at Vermilion Rd.)

Comment on Mushroom Hunting in Duluth by Kodiak

Have picked chanterelles in Sweden. They’re abundant in the forests and very tasty. But Swedes would use a nice woven birch basket to collect them; not a nasty plastic pail! LOL

Comment on Northern Waters restaurant open on Woodland Avenue by Kodiak

You can call me Mt Royal or even the university district but don’t call me WOODLAND! Woodland is up the road past Hunters Park on the left and Morley Hts on the right. Woodland Avenue leads to WOODLAND!!!
‘Nuff said.

Comment on Duluth, Kansas by Samantha Nolte

I live in Duluth now right next to the train track. It is very uneventful there. But a nice place to live since it is quiet. And just 5 miles from Onaga.

Comment on Public Officials with Cool Names by Paul Lundgren

I can’t locate an image, but here’s noting that Duluth Planning Commission Chairwoman Zandra Zwiebel belongs here.

Comment on Red Cowboy Hat (featuring Jim Hall) – “Duluth Blues” by Herzog

He’s potentially the only musician in town I’ve consistently enjoyed over the years. His shit is straight, he is without BS. Two qualities seemingly impossible to achieve among the younger set.

Comment on Northern Waters restaurant open on Woodland Avenue by Dave P

Checked this out during last Saturday’s “soft open.” Time to redo the PDD “Best Restaurant” poll. There’s a new sheriff in town.

Comment on Perfect Indoor Concert Venue: Red Herring Lounge by Herzog

It would be tough to dispute the Red Herring will be sagging at the gills when it hosts a Backstreet Boy next month from which many concert goers may emerge with feelings of guilt and shame for attending such a gag while being deprived of oxygen t...

Comment on The Alan Sparhawk Project by Paul Lundgren

The Blacklist also featured Cloud Cult’s “You Were Born” in season 2, episode 5, “The Front,” which aired Oct. 20, 2014.

The above clip is not how it appeared on TV; it’s a montage put together by a fan.

Comment on The Alan Sparhawk Project by Brian

A couple weeks ago, “The Blacklist” was on, and I walked by the TV and thought -- that song they’re using sounds familiar. It was Low’s “No Comprende.”

Comment on Field Guide to Duluth Apostrophe’s by Nick L

Duluth Apostrophes made it across the Atlantic in a freighter’s ballast tanks. This is my sister’s loaner car in Bedford, UK, this week. She is not amused.

Comment on Moving North by Claire

I am lucky enough to have already read Lucie’s memoir. I love how she and Jason made lemonade out of lemons regarding their careers and have truly become yet another couple of reasons why Duluth rocks, with all of its entrepreneurs and other inter...

Comment on A visit with Gaelynn Lea by Claire

Gaelynn Lea has the most haunting voice. An incredible talent and a lot of personal charisma. I’ve been a fan of hers for a long, long time.

Comment on Moving North by Paul Lundgren

There has been more praise and general commentary about the essay on the PDD Facebook page:

Moving North comments

Also of note: Lucie will be a panelist (along with MPR’s Dan Kraker and the Duluth News Tribune’s Sam Cook) at the One River, Many Stories “Skill Session...

Comment on Moving North by Lucie Amundsen

What a nice thing to say, Claudia. When we meet in real life be sure to say you were the one person to comment on my Saturday Essay. Also, my hair never looks that cute in real life.

Comment on Moving North by snowquilter

Lucie, we don’t know each other — we’ve never met, but I, for one, am very happy you and your family are here. I have the same feelings about Duluth, but you voice them so well. I enjoyed your Saturday essay and am waiting impatiently for your boo...

Comment on Blacklist brewery expanding to downtown Duluth by Herzog

Wait a second, wasn’t this thread about belgian beers? You guys get more off track than I do. Ah, Belgian beer… That would’ve been nice seven years ago. Better late than never I guess. To have a truly authentic belgian beer though, you need to ha...

Comment on Blacklist brewery expanding to downtown Duluth by Herzog

Just like Baci was minding his own business as a counselor, and this young girl comes along and coerces him into a relationship. Claire, I think we all know the real devil in the Duluth school system has been none other than a man by the name of ...

Comment on Blacklist brewery expanding to downtown Duluth by Claire

Ramos, as you know, I used to work across the street from the liquor store you are referring to — and I have shopped there. Never been harassed by the people who hang outside it. The pro-life activists though … that’s a different story. One “pro-...

Comment on John Mark Nelson & Kara Laudon – “That’s What You Do” by bikeshox13

Good thing you got that apostrophe in the title. Who knows what could have happened.

Comment on Blacklist brewery expanding to downtown Duluth by Herzog

Are you kidding me, another svengoolie? Man there is some serious den of iniquity shit going on here with Duluth and schools. No wonder those places give me the creeps. Every time I see a photo of some greasy English prof with long hair, my bird g...

Comment on Blacklist brewery expanding to downtown Duluth by yoniohno

@Ramos Hear, hear! Keep doing your thing. I appreciate your courage to stick a pin in the balloon of this idea that craft alcohol is nothing but good for Duluth and that brewers are our shiniest beacons. I’m not against it, it’s just tiresome how...

Comment on Duluth Milk Bottle Mystery by Chris Stepan Imgrund

My step mom, Alma Rickets Ostrander, worked for the Singleton Dairy probably back in the 1930s. I also believe her family was related to the the Singletons. If anybody has an intact bottle they’d like to sell me, Alma’s daughter might like one.
