Happy 14th birthday to us

Today marks 14 years since Barrett Chase and Scott Lunt launched Perfect Duluth Day. Celebrate with us tonight at Sir Benedict’s Tavern on the Lake from 5 to 7 p.m. There will be live music by Woodblind and free coleslaw.

Thanks to all for your intellectual contributions and readership over the years!

Random facts:

“Happy Fourteenth Birthday to Us” is the 15,117th post on the PDD Blog. Post #15,000 was last month’s “Selective Focus: Art on the Planet.” We would have mentioned that at the time, but we weren’t paying attention.

The most recent 9,611 posts have been in the modern WordPress version of PDD. From September 2005 to January 2009 PDD used the Moveable Type platform for 3,415 posts. The original PDD used Blogger to publish 2,091 posts from June 2003 to September 2005.

The PDD Calendar launched Sept. 12, 2011. More than 44,000 events have been published since then.

Throughout the first 14 years, PDD never changed its T-shirt design … until now. Hot off the Duluth Screen Printing presses, just in time for PDDXIV: The new PDDT with angry seagull art by Brian Barber.
