Where in Duluth? — Some easy ones

From time to time on PDD we like to play a little game called “Where in Duluth?” The first person to name the location of the photo wins bragging rights.

Since this one is so easy, it will be followed up in the comments with a few more easy ones, because it just seems like the right thing to do.

I think that's the statue of the Blessed Virgin at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, which is on the Valley Trail behind CSS.

That's Vincent Garagiulo practicing his Oscar acceptance speech.

Lesterlynn for the win! And plenty of smartass points to Ramos.

So if you all are so smart, where in Duluth is this one?

I'd guess the Duluth Figure Skating Club in the DECC.

Club Saratoga.

Paul Lundgren

JJ has it. It's the sign above the back door of the Club Saratoga.

Paul Lundgren

So how about this easy one?

Piedmont Ski Trail.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Yep. Piedmont Ski Trail. Wildknits has it right off the bat.

Paul Lundgren

This one might be a little more difficult.

The Bedrock?

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Not the Bedrock.

Grandmas Upbar has one of those juke boxes...

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Not Grandma's. I think a lot of bars in town have this same juke. 

Here's a hint since this one is tough: The writing in the upper right corner indicates a Monday night drawing.

Dorkus

Well, I was gonna say the Bar at Mexico Lindo, as they have one of those Holiday-Sign lookin' jukeboxes. But the drawring makes me think otherwise. 

Since I know where Paul hails from, I am gonna go with the North Pole.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

It's not the North Pole Bar. If I were to have phrased this one as a riddle, I might say it's "North of the North Pole."

Paul Lundgren is Santa? That explains everything!

Gopher? I hardly know her. But seriously folks, Berv is awfully close.

TimK

I haven't been in a while, so the juke box isn't fresh in my mind-  Mr. Ds?

Paul Lundgren

West of the Gopher, north of the Pole,
East of D's lies a right proper hole.

In the last segment, "Where in Duluth",
I was definitely thrown for a loop.
With the use of 'right proper',
I felt my proffer
Of location should be in...(umm, England, ummm, what in London rhymes with 'duluth/loop")
oh #$%^, why do I even bother?

Dorkus

about 7 years ago

I would like to wax,
Wax poetic, but alas...
Naught rhymes with rustic.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Before this takes a filthy limerick turn, I'll just jump in and say, yeah, Dorkus got it. The Rustic Bar.

Cranking up the fill light even reveals the word "Rustic" on the wall behind the lovely female karaoke singer.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

This one might not be that easy either, but I think we have a good competition going here.



Lesterlynn - 1
JJ - 1
Wildknits - 1
Dorkus - 1

First one to two wins!

emmadogs

about 7 years ago

We should have PDD limerick contests too.  Now that one, I could be a contenda.

jj

The campground out by Chambers Grove.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

A good guess, yet still way off.

Western waterfront trail, Indian point

emmadogs

about 7 years ago

Oh please please please please please

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

It's not Indian Point, but don't give up, Emmadogs. You can do it. Believe!

wildknits

about 7 years ago

Just a wild guess but... Boy Scout Landing?

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Not Boy Scout Landing. The closest guess so far, Indian Point, is still about fives miles off.

wildknits

about 7 years ago

Sheesh - that puts it somewhere in the vicinity of Rice's Point if on the waterfront (Bay) or possibly up the hill?!?! 

Twin Ponds?!?!

Dang artfully cropped photo that doesn't allow full view of the clues!

bluenewt

about 7 years ago

Brighton Beach?

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

It's not Brighton Beach or Twin Ponds. Wildknits is on to something with her other guess, though.

bluenewt

about 7 years ago

Is it on an island?

wildknits

about 7 years ago

Near the Interstate Bridge/Fishing Dock?

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

Wildknits is close enough, since I don't think there is a specific name for the location on this one. I would describe it as "near the parking lot at the end of Rice's Point."

So Wildknits wins!

wildknits

about 7 years ago

That was essentially what I was getting at - there are just a few parking lots down there and I couldn't figure out which one would have the table. 

Whoo hooo!! Now I can stop haunting google maps, zooming in on areas I know, but not well enough apparently.

Paul Lundgren

about 7 years ago

You were describing the opposite side of the Blatnik Bridge from where the photo was shot, but certainly close enough.

Here's the fuller view of the image, so you can see the relation to the Blatnik.

wildknits

about 7 years ago

Ah ha! Thought by looking at the overhead view it might have been there. Yes - the full photo would have been a dead give away. 

The willows were a good clue, not too many places that have them in the area. What threw me were the rocks... looks like rhyolite. Possibly from the quarry near Point of Rocks?
