North Shore fish on Twin Cities menu
For one day — and one day only — the North Shore might not be the best place to eat freshly caught lake herring.
That day will be Tuesday, when a slate of Twin Cities chefs team up for “A Salute to Lake Superior’s Sustainable Fisheries.” For $10 you can sample dishes by award-winning chefs and find out who won the $1,000 prize for best lake herring entree.
Entertainment will be provided by North Shore resident Michael Monroe, and the fish is provided by Dockside Fish Market in Grand Marais.
The salute will be 4-6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Minnesota
McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis.
Tickets and info: www.seagrant.umn.edu or (612) 625-6000.
Your free ride is finished
We’re guessing this bit of news won’t break many hearts.
The Duluth Transit Authority is ending its Park Free, Ride Free services at the end of this week. And that’s OK, because it means the Interstate 35 construction season is coming to a close.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation paid the DTA to get commuters downtown from West Duluth the past two construction seasons so their cars wouldn’t overload Grand Avenue or the I-35 construction zone.
By Friday they’ll have given about 43,000 free rides this year, about the same as last year. And ridership was up even more than that in the Grand Avenue corridor: They’re guessing another 25,000-30,000 rides were paid for both years by people who just wanted to avoid the construction even though they weren’t in the free-ride zone.
