Pavilion Party, Aug 22nd!

This Saturday (August 22) we will gather at 1:00 pm at the home of “Our Flounder,” Dr. Bill van Druten, to talk and listen and laugh and share. What we’ll be sharing is whatever food, snack, or beverages you decide to bring along (not to mention our views on religion, wisdom, and life in general). We’ll gather in the relative safety of the outdoors for an afternoon of fellowship and fine conversation (masks encouraged). It wouldn’t be as special without you! 2931 Greysolon Road, Duluth, MN 55812 (218) 724-4176 Park anywhere on Greysolon Road but NOT on 30th Avenue!

OMG we’re going to OMC!

This Wednesday, August 19th, let’s gather at OMC in West Duluth. There are tables and even a tent outside, so it’s easy to maintain “social distance.” There are beautiful smokehouse dinners at affordable prices and a friendly modern atmosphere.

Vegan or Vegetarian? Maybe one of these will work …

Vegetarian Sloppy Joe ($10)  This sandwich stands on its own packed with quinoa and lentils, topped with pickled jalapenos and brined red onions.
The Beyond Burger ($14) Vegetarian burger that looks, cooks, and tastes like a fresh beef burger. It has all the juicy, meat deliciousness of a traditional burger, but comes with the upsides of a plant-based meal with bibb lettuce, tomato, sliced cheddar (could be left out!), haystack onions, and caramelized onion-tomato jam.

We will meet at 5:30 pm and stay … until we’re done talking! The restaurant is locally owned and operated. OMC Smokehouse, 1909 West Superior St. (218) 606-1611.

HAPPY HOURS at Bob’s Cabins

This Thursday, August 6th from 4:00-6:00 pm please join other freethinkers at Bob’s Cabins for fun and freedom of thought!  The cabins are half an hour out of town and are owned and operated by our very own Bill Guse.  First, head up the lake toward Twin Harbors on Highway 61 until Mile #20.  Then make a right turn and a quick left and drive a short distance until you see the Mocha Moose Cafe on the left.  Now turn right (over the railroad tracks) and left again and drive a little farther this time, watching for the Bob’s Cabins sign on the right (#664).   Park by the garages there and walk to the grey house, about 250 feet away.  This will be our last gathering at Bob’s Cabins before Bill sells the business and heads into retirement.  You’re not going to miss this, are you?  If you get lost, call (218) 834-4583.
