This week: birding, chili and trout fishing

cal-header

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

It’s harvest time and that means a lot of action in area farmers’ markets (Downtown,  UMD, East Hillside, Lincoln ParkWest Duluth, and Two Harbors) and this week the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank is looking for volunteers to help pick fresh produce.

On Tuesday there is a trifecta of business presentations with David Jaffe, CEO of the company that controls Maurices, speaking at Weber, Brian Hanson, CEO of APEX, at Clyde Iron, and Danielle Thralow, creator of binoculars.com, peepers.com and telescope.com, at WITC.

They say it’s going to get chilly this week by Wednesday, and we’re going to get chili on Thursday with the United Way Chili Cook-Off at the DECC. Yeah, I went for the obvious pun. Sue me.

Starting this Friday Clinton Nienhaus will be leading early morning birding strolls starting at Duluth Sky Harbor. These weekly walks will go through the end of October.

Venus DeMars (after a prolonged struggle with the Minnesota Department of Revenue over whether or not she’s an artist) performs as court-sanctioned, bona fide artist at Sacred Heart on Saturday.

The Red Herring Lounge celebrates the life and works of Richard Brautigan on Sunday with Trout Fishing in Duluth.

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

So the only people who will find out how APEX is "Driving Investment Throughout the Region" are those who are willing to shell out $20 to hear Brian Hanson give a talk? No wonder the guy makes $140,000 a year.
