This week: zumba, salsa and taking a plunge


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

There’s a new Zumba class meeting at Pilgrim on Mondays.

Been day dreaming about that summer outing? Do some window shopping for that day dream at the Duluth Boat, Sports, Travel and RV Show at the DECC. It runs Wednesday through Sunday.

Valentines Day has lots of events for your romantic outing. Here’s a sampling:

Also on Thursday, Almost, Maine opens at the Playhouse and Tales from the Bad Years opens at UMD. Both run for two weekends.

A couple Black History Month events to note this week. Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. (Ret.) Hiram Mann will talk about his experiences during UMD’s Profiles in Courage event on Friday at Weber Hall. Sue Sojourner and Cheryl Reitan launch their book Thunder of Freedom: Black Leadership and the Transformation of 1960s Mississippi Sunday at At Sara’s Table.

Watch people jump into Lake Superior on purpose at the annual Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday. Sign up is at Grandma’s Sports Garden.

Or if you’d rather stay inside and watch movies, there’s a Short Films Festival at the Play Ground on Saturday.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!

Zinema has an outstanding line-up this week.  City Lights, the best Chaplin film; also the new Herzog documentary (yay!), one of the nominated 'best foreign films' (yes!) and a film starring the Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey.  All films are very well reviewed.  We're definitely catching the Herzog film.

With all the owl sightings in town this winter, its a shame the only ones I've seen have been at the club.

Which brings me to my favorite poster this week:
