    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Back to Duluth

I am back in the crazy city of Duluth, ready to get back to work before school starts up.  Many of you have already been here for a couple days or a week, and some of you are still at home with the family.  My first thought, however, showing up in Duluth was…what’s going on tonight?!  I did some research on events for the weekend and thought I would spread the word (in case you are looking for some excitement).

  1. Sir Benedict’s Tavern: “Minnesota Buick” will be playing beginning at 9:30 pm.   Admission is free.
  2. Dubh Linn Pub: Professional stand up comedy act by Mark Schneider and John Russell.  Begins at 9:00 and admission is $12.
  3. Black Bear Casino: TWO events.  The first is that Crossfire Duluth is playing to sum up their 3 day anniversary performance.  Admission is free and the band is AMAZING.  They are a personal fave of mine.  The second event is the Fearless Fighting Championship (which is a mixed martial arts exhibition).  Tickets run around $30- 60.


  1. Zinema 2: The Sleeping Beauty Ballet performed by Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet.  Tickets are $15.
  2. Little Angie’s Cantina: There will be an ice carving competition just outside Little Angie’s.  Cash and prizes will be awarded to the most beautiful and skilled carvings.
