Duluth is the sister city to Superior, Wisconsin. . .Duluth and Superior exist because this is a major entry point for ships heading in and out of Lake Superior, one of the world’s largest bodies of fresh water. In the late 19th century some folks thought that the port here could be bigger and more important than the ports in and around Chicago, but as history has played out, this has certainly not been the case. Chicago is one of the world’s great cities now…while Superior is a grungy-feeling industrial town home to concrete factories–these are some of the most toxic types of factories on Earth…not pleasant to live near at all. . .and Duluth is somewhat shielded from these factories by the geography of the lake shore, bridges, rivers, and man-made coves. . .the Duluth folks have created a nice boardwalk/waterfront area that flocks with visitors like us during the summer…mmm, aaaahh!
Anyway, we have made our way through all of the toxicity to Grandma’s Pub & Patio…we are hungry…so we gobble fried walleye sandwiches, bratwursts, french fries, onion rings, etc. and wash everything down with bloody marys packed with sausages, pickles, onion, and peppers and a couple of cans of Bent Paddle Pilsener. . .mmm, aaaahh–we are about as happy as two people can be while sitting near the entry harbor to Lake Superior between Superior and Duluth.
If you ever find yourself hangin’ out up here in Duluth for any reason, then please make your way over to Grandma’s Pub. . .you will find extremely friendly staff, tons of tasty pub grub, and lots of beverages to satisfy even the deepest of thirsts.
