Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.
It’s a town hall meeting with booze! Mayor Don Ness is holding his first “town hall forum” at The Underground tonight with a cash bar because, in the words of our mayor, “serving alcohol will definitely increase the likelihood of complete disaster… It’ll be like nascar, everybody shows up hoping for a huge crash.” Sounds promising.
Tuey Wilson, comic juggler, performs at the Duluth Public Library on Tuesday on the outdoor stage, and, if it’s anything like his show at the Renaissance Festival, it is not to be missed. Especially if he pulls out his “flaming beanie of death.”â„¢
The Karl Oskar Choir (from our sister city, VÃ¤xjÃ¶, Sweden) will be singing at Lake Place Park on Wednesday. Umlauts for everyone!
Hamlet and Thoroughly Modern Millie open at the Duluth Playhouse on Thursday and Friday. These two plays are being done in rep with the cast of one show operating as the crew for the other show. This is the product of the Playhouse Summer Teen Intensive Program. Last year they produced Metamorphoses which many people on this blog, you may remember, voted as the best play produced in Duluth all year.
The Bayfront Blues Festival runs this weekend, Friday through Sunday. You can see it at Bayfront Park or hear it from practically anywhere within 5 miles of downtown.
You may or may not be able to hear the Blues Fest at the first annual Lake Superior Art Festival at Brighton Beach on Saturday. Someone will just have to try it out.
Sunday is the last game of the regular season for the Duluth Huskies at Wade Stadium. They face off against the St. Cloud Rox.
