Just like a budding flower in Spring there are certain businesses that re-open after taking a winter hiatus and it gets Northlanders excited about the possibility of our seasons changing.  I was surprised to see one such business open on Grand Avenue in West Duluth already, Dairy Queen.  Woot Woot!  Here's my list of other businesses that I can't wait to open, can you add to it?

    Gordy's Hi-Hat

    Gordy's Hi-Hat in Sunnyside, Cloquet is a frequent destination for us to go when we're on the cycle.  It's just hard to decide between a hamburger or fish sandwich.  Of course, we get fries AND onion rings and we have to have a shake or at least hit up the ice cream shop next door, don't you agree?

    A & Dubs

    We live close enough to A & Dub's that we get the delicious smell if the wind is blowing right.  Super awesome nostalgia at A & Dub's, where you can still drive up and get the tray of food delivered to your car by a "car hop".
