My 5 songs in 5 days project is complete.
Enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) as you would like.
Monday, Aug 22: 7 pm cocktails and sound check, 7:30-9:30 dancing
All dances will be taught. It’s helpful to listen to instructions, but no previous experience is necessary. And if you get stuff wrong, it’s still a lot of fun.
Live music provided by the All-American String Band (Tom, Brandy, Sarah, Clancy and Adam K-not shown)

I just now noticed that “analysis” could be thought of as having a prefix.
Anyway, the ears on the left are from the Whole Foods Coop and the ones on the right are from the guy in the Pizza Hut parking lot on Central Entrance.
Co-op price was .99 each (or .89 with my membership). Pizza Hut price was $6/doz or .50 each.
A random coop ear was 35 corns high and 18 corns around at the base and thus I approximate it as having 630 corns at $0.0014 per corn.
Pizza Hut Guy corn was 33 corns tall and 13 corns around at base. That’s 429 corns and $.0012 per corn. Still cheaper, but if I had a little more patience, I might count around the middle next time.
The Co-op corn’s white appearance is outside of my childhood memories of what corn should look like, but it did yellow up after boiling.
They were both delicious. However; I found the Co-op cob superior. It was fresher and juicier. Co-op corn also offered a better audio experience as the kernels popped when bitten into.
I just attended my first Monday Night Square Dance in Minneapolis and want to build a similar event in Duluth. I am asking PDD for input on location or other thoughts.
To get an idea of what I’m after, please watch this…
This event shall…
I have access to talented musicians and callers, I just need to figure out how to fly this and would like your input on what atmosphere would entice Duluthians to attend such an event.
Initially, I thought of Carmody Irish Pub, but I feel it’s a little dark and I’d rather be somewhere that has Pabst on tap.
So, next I thought of Thirsty Pagen – they don’t have Pabst on tap, but they have the Miller mural which is almost as good. Downside is that they’re pretty booked on weeknights and probably wouldn’t be keen on moving tables out of that main room.
Then, I thought of Mohaupt Block, but we won’t be able to afford hall rental fees and I’m not sure how to serve booze there.
Is there some diamond-in-the-rough West End or Superior bar with a good room/atmosphere for my event?
