Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
I remember back in the late 60’s it rained so hard one day that even the Catholics were wearing rubbers!
This is so great! People are getting priced out of visiting Duluth — cheers to making this a place everyone can visit.
Has anyone else been here? We visited last weekend and liked the bar area and wish we’d sat there. As for the food — we won’t be dining there again — just drinking. I had salmon with a honey sriracha glaze on it and it was pretty mediocre. My husb...
This is exciting news for downtown Duluth and I wish Bob success! I’ve had friends visiting me in Duluth who can’t afford to stay in hotels, they are so expensive. A hostel is a great idea! This is going to bring more interesting and young people ...
Really interesting. Thanks for posting, Paul.
Great news. Thanks for story.
I remember walking past that place every Friday after work. There was a liquor store in either the Amemdola Building or maybe further East closer to the Arrow Chevrolet dealership. I got hit by a car one night crossing Washington Avenue by someone...
You can see the building in the background of a 1983 photo from this News Tribune Attic post, shortly before it would have been demolished for the freeway extension.
At some point during its life, part of the front of the structure was remove...
Great video & inspiring
Great story. Thanks for posting it.
I definitely think he should have to suffer the consequences of his abhorrent behavior and actions. But there are ways to do it that don’t also hurt innocent bystanders. Community members such as yourself continue to bring his offenses to the fore...
I think your justification might apply to many cases of when ceasing to provide support for a predator will also cut off those the predator supports. Even predators have family, friends, and businesses they support. If we alwa...
I am so excited about visiting on my next trip to Grand Marais and want to stay there as well!! I remember going into the Harbor when we stayed across the highway in a cabin for 10 days — one time while visiting it was so humid and hot, which is u...
Wonderful narrative, friend. Almost too long, but not quite. Almost too personal, but, again -- not quite. Almost good enough for broadway -- HEY this is broadway!
Keep it up.
Here are a pair of quotes from Chancellor Renee Wachter.
Duluth News Tribune: “UWS students express frustration over program suspensions“
In response to a UWS alumnus questioning why he should continue to support the university, Wachter said al...
Who is the person who sells her own roasted coffee at the 3rd St Farmers Market during the summer?
Rod’s problematic actions create an unfortunate issue in a “small” city such as ours. I don’t want to endorse him but I do want to support the many people that I know that work at the establishments that he, in this case unfortunately, owns....
What does the Chancellor say regarding these cuts?
Remember that Rod Raymond is the sole owner of Just Take Action, which owns Fitger’s Brewhouse, Brewhouse Beer Store, Burrito Union, Rathskeller, Endion Station and the Barrel Room.
Rod Raymond has a fairly long list of sexual harassment allegatio...
Your hat remains ass free. That was added to the story, along with some other information.
Please tell me that wasn’t there the first time I read it. If it was, sorry for being an asshat.
The person with the blue hoodie in the background is channeling the classic upset posture. She could teach classes in how to look upset.
The restaurant will be separately owned; the space will be leased from JTA.
Is it still owned by JTA, or does Chef Moore own it?
I bet the port authority would know.

Fantastic solve, Matthijs!
Also, from the same article:
When the sun melts his sculpture, Hattenberger isn’t sad that his work will not live for posterity.
“You have to accept that,” he said. “And that’s hard for some artists. But as long as I have a picture of it befor...
This one seems a little easier than usual. From a January 28, 1988 article in the Washington Post about Engelbert Hattenberger, an ice sculptor from Austria:
This is Hattenberger’s third year sculpting in Duluth; he planned to finish a globe and...
The Duluth Shipping News might have some information on that. Anecdotally, it looks like a couple of ships in/out every day from Superior.
I still haven’t been to Chippewa Inn, but I can recommend Garmisch Inn Restaurant & Lounge based on one excellent experience. It’s about an hour and a half from Duluth in the outskirts of Cable, Wis.
