All New ALDI

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

My girlfriend and I went out today to do some grocery shopping so we could meal prep for this week. We found ourselves at the ALDI up off of Mall Drive in Duluth for the first time since it’s opening in October. We were looking for some fresh produce ingredients for one of our favorite soups. We found everything we were looking for and were quite impressed with their low prices. If you do find yourself planning a trip to ALDI be sure to bring your own bag (BYOB) or bring a quarter to get a cart. Check out ALDI’s website for weekly deals and features!


Kunnari’s Kitchen

Friday, March 30th, 2018

I found a new restaurant in Virginia, MN called Kunnari’s Kitchen Coffee House, & Farm Market. If you find yourself headed up highway 53 north towards Virginia this is a “must-stop”. The environment is really unique with walk-up style ordering, seat yourself dining, and a farmer’s market connected to the restaurant to browse treats, veggies, and crafts. The food was fantastic! I had a caprese veggie burger with french fries and my girlfriend had an honey crisp apple salad with broccoli and cheese soup, and we both shared a maple cinnamon roll – all very fresh and filling! Oh and if you are in need of a haircut, there is a barber shop located within the building too.


New Eats – Boomtown Brewery and Woodfire Grill

Monday, March 26th, 2018

A “new” restaurant called Boomtown Brewery and Woodfire Grill popped up in Hibbing, MN which is about an hour and a half north of Duluth. The restaurant has an original in Eveleth, MN, however, the owners just put up another one in Hibbing along with a brewery. Being the brewery connoisseurs that we are and since Chisholm is home for my girlfriend, we checked it out. They were very busy the evening we went in, but we found a spot at the bar and ordered up some great food and a buy one get one beer from their tap list. Along with the food and beer, service was great and so was the atmosphere. If you are ever headed north through Hibbing, MN be sure to check out Boomtown!


Fish Fry for Lent

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

During the season of Lent, my girlfriend and I like to check out the local fish frys around the Duluth area. We have one place in particular that is our “g- to”, but just a quick search online will reveal a large list of locations that have Friday night fish fry specials to choose from.


OMC Smokehouse

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Today, my girlfriend and I got to catch up with my aunt and uncle at a “new” restaurant in West Duluth. Although this place has been open for a little over a year, none of us had previously been there. The OMC Smokehouse, the OMC apparently standing for “Oink”, “Moo”, and “Cluck”, was fantastic. Their menu was full of delicious options for both the meat and fish lover. Check out their menu below to see all sorts of items that are likely to please whatever crew you go there with. OMC also has a wide selection of local craft beers, a nice wine selection, and other non-alcoholic beverages to quench your thirst. OMC Smokehouse is located at 1909 W. Superior St. in Duluth. They are located just a bock from the Bent Paddle Brewery, as well, and they even deliver food to the brewery – quite the partnership if I do say so myself. The restaurant also had a nice sized outdoor area where folks can sit or stand next to fires and enjoy the fresh outdoor air of Duluth.
