This week: pancakes, snow angels and a Scottish king


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

Hey, Duluth. How ya doing? Find out today at the mayor’s State of the City Address at Spirit Mountain.

Tuesday is Mardi Gras and if you are looking for a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner head on over to Duluth Congregational Church.

On Wednesdays the Duluth XC Ski Club is holding night ski races. This week’s race is going to be at Lester Park.

Something wicked this way comes on Friday with Wise Fool Shakespeare‘s production of Macbeth at Lincoln Park Middle School. It runs two weekends.

Something funny this way comes on Friday when the Upright Citizen’s Brigade lands at the Teatro Zuccone. On Saturday they will be leading a workshop on long form improvisation.

Make a snow angel on Sunday with 3,999 of your friends at UMD. Because fun.

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

Whoops! Right you are, your Scottish majesty. I corrected it above. I'm so used to plays opening on Thursday I just did it automatically.

This Friday and Saturday is the FRC high school robotics competition in Duluth. 112 teams from six states (including Hawaii) will be at the DECC to play this year's game, Aerial Assist. This year, Duluth has broken the world record for the largest regional competition under one roof!

The Hermantown Hawks are a new team this year, and the Denfeld Hunters, Duluth East Daredevils, Lakeview Christian Academy Lion Pride, Marshall TopperBots, and Two Harbors Rock Solid Robotics will all be returning as well.

Matches go from 9 am to 5:45 pm on Friday and 9 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday (with breaks for lunch). For more information, see the schedule.

And if you go, know that you can go down to the pits and see the robots up close. Go down to Pioneer Hall and Edmund Fitzgerald Exhibit Hall to check them out.

The most fun thing that the Duluth XC Ski Club is doing this week is hosting our 10th annual Tour Duluth on Saturday! Thank goodness the forecast looks good (sunny & "warm"). The post-ski dinner at Hartley has MUSIC and BEER as well as food:
Hope to see a whole bunch of yous on the ski trails!
