Duluth Trivia Deck Sampler #46: Grand Finale

Here it is, the last one in the set of trivia cards from an old board game purchased at Savers.

Thanks for the Tiramisu

Yesterday, I snagged five pieces of tiramisu from Wussow’s through the drive-through window, in a nearly touchless exchange. A few days before, Zhong Hua made some tasty Chinese in, again, a nearly touchless exchange.

I went to the Hermantown YMCA, which is somehow, I don’t entirely understand how, co-branded with Essentia. It’s an amazing complex, not least of which because it contains, as well, a Yellow Bike Coffeeshop.

Electric Fetus, Juice Pharm and More

I visited the Juice Pharm in the last days of its Skywalk location yesterday.  It is moving to 208 E. First St., the former Red Herring Lounge location. The beverages are always tasty, and feel more like a meal than a drink. I will miss the Skywalk location, though I admit I don’t get there as often as I would like.

Red Cape Tango at DSSO

Last night I sat alone in the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center’s Symphony Hall listening to the “Red Cape Tango” of Michael Dougherty.

There were hundreds of other people there, to be sure, some of them friends. But I feel almost certain that I was the only one who, listening to the piece, conjured mental images of the comic that inspired it.
