Another bar, really? How many is enough.

Not a bar. No full liquor license. Look at a city like Bellingham Washington; 86000 population but no surrounding area like Duluth. It is a smaller area but the restaurant selection dwarfs Duluth’s. In Washington you don’t see so many crappy chains like here so you can’t count Greenmill, Grizzly’s, Old Chicago, Red Lobster, Applebee’s etc. People out there won’t support that crap so they tend to have unique singly owned restaurants. We are still behind in our choices here. It is getting better. Have to say I can already think off places with good beer and burgers. What I think we are missing is a good high end Mexican place, a Spanish place and there is no Greek or Middle Eastern food at all.

I hope he does something like the Blue Door Pub in St. Paul where they have good beer, but are known for their Blue Cheese Juicy Luicy (blue cheese in the middle of two hamburger patties), or something like the nook. A good hamburger place will be different and have lots of options. I hope we see more of these restaurant options. I would like to see a good sushi place that brews its own sake downtown with a good sushi happy hour.

A restaurant will open another will close. There was a Greek place downtown not all that long ago, didn’t last long.

I have to agree with Dusty’s sentiment. Not trying to be negative, but realistic. This is just another beer & burger joint that will be in a high-rent location in downtown. That just means they will have to charge higher prices or do a lot of volume in order to make a profit. High prices for beer & burgers isn’t a winning combination, especially in Duluth and to get a large volume they will just be taking from other restaurants/establishments. It’s exciting to have a new venue of course, but I just don’t see it being sustainable.

It could be a new hang out for what’s his name…what the hell is his name? Well anyway…this way he wouldn’t have to travel to the Florida Keys for the spring break experience.

I no longer drink and have zero interest in spring break. That’s for amateurs, like new years and the 4th of july.
