    Welcome to Duluth!
    I’m interested to read all the things you come across on your stay here. So far, very interesting. Good luck!

  2. Cool blog, Adam–

    I grew up with Jamie playing soccer and tennis around Duluth. You haven’t lived until you grab a cheap plastic sled or saucer, haul it up the hill next to the Holy Rosary Church playground next to the 4th street parking lot, sit down, and let fly.

    Hey Adam!
    Saw your post on the AIR list. Go to Amazing Grace Bakery in Canal Park and tell Marcie (the owner) that I’ll spot you for a free coffee. She’s got some amazing stories for you.

    You should do A Month in Superior, Wisconsin. Actually, Jack’s Place had a fun event, a fundraiser for Circle of Hope. Ice Golfing, 9 holes was something I never experienced. Next year it will even have more added to it. I am unsure if it will be in January or February. If you talk to Karen at this place she has lots of fun activities for her patrons. Some that will send you laughing. I live in Duluth. Thanks for sharing your blog with us. It was interesting. I think ice fishing, ice golfing, spam contests in Superior would add a new twist next year. There is so much more that happens in Superior. They tend to be real creative.

    Oh, if you do Duluth again, you need to take a picture or have a drink at the Ice Bar in Canal Park, listen to the Road Kill Boys the last Tuesday of the month. They are very Bluegrass and always have a packed house at Amazing Grace.

    I am unsure what month the UMD students sleep in boxes to experience homelessness. I am unsure if at Chum’s drop in center, the guys/men still sleep on mattress on the floor. That word needs to get out, if it hasn’t changed.
