It’s contest time again at PDD. This one’s best suited to those of you with children in need of entertainment. The prize is four tickets to Rubber Chicken Theater‘s production of Humpty Dumpty, which runs May 22-24 and 29-31 at the Historic Scottish Rite Auditorium.
Here’s how to play:
Shoot a photo of yourself and/or friends or family members sitting on a wall. (Depictions of a great fall are optional.) E-mail the photo to contest @ perfectduluthday.com and include your telephone number. Whoever sends the best photo wins. Deadline is noon Friday, May 22.
Any questions? Direct them to the e-mail address above or use the comments section of this post. Good luck. We’ll have all the kings horses and men on standby, but keep in mind that their abilities are limited.
As some of you have already figured out, we added a tool on PDD in which readers can rate how useful or enjoyable they find particular posts.
[UPDATE: Ratings were taken down 15 days after this post went up, so don’t look for them and feel stupid.]
See that row of stars at the bottom of this (and every other) post? That’s where the rating happens. All you have to do is click on the appropriate star to gauge your appreciation. The meaning behind the stars is basically this:
1 star – Lame
2 stars – Somewhat appreciated, but still kind of lame
3 stars – Above average
4 stars – Mint
5 stars – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
A NOTE ABOUT RATING THIS PARTICULAR POST: Rather than rating the quality of this post, please rate the whole idea of having ratings at all, as that will be useful to know. And feel free to comment about it as well.
I dropped my camera at the Main Club last night and didn’t realize the memory card popped out until today. Anybody find it?
Someone lost a Nikon lens cover at the Main Club last night. It’s available at the bar.
For the benefit of the general public, I’m sharing the results of today’s research project, entitled Which Junkyard Will Take My Useless Old Car and What Will They Give Me For It?
There are several places that will take your car if you strip the gas tank off, drain all the fluids, etc.
If you want someone to take it as is, the closest place to Duluth is Calvary Auto & Salvage in the Rice Lake Township (4825 Rice Lake Road | 723-1294).
A little farther away is Chesney Auto Salvage in the Fredenberg Township (6250 Beaver River Road | 721-4874).
Both offered $50 for my 1990 Ford Taurus, on the conditions that I deliver it to them and bring the title.
It’s no secret that Fitger’s Brewhouse beers are outstanding, but what happens when you mix a bunch of them together?
Having recently had 11 different Brewhouse beers available at an event, I was faced at the end of the night with many growlers that had less than an inch of beer left. So a consolidation into one growler seemed like the best idea.
The answer to the question at hand is this: If Wildfire Lager is one of the beers involved in the mix, the mix will taste like Wildfire Lager.
