The Pickwick Restaurant Viewed From Doctor's Lobby

Well I am back living in Duluth, Minnesota after 20 years. We had to find a new doctor, hubby and I.

Boy I hate having to find a doctor. Once you find one, then you have to get to know them and they have to get to know you. A most of all is the trust level.

Boy they ask a lot of questions.

Do you smoke? Not any more,

Do you drink Not any more,

Why are you taking those pills? Cause if I don't, I'll break something (I have the curse of hot flashes .. how long does this hell go on Doc?.

And the questions go on and on. Well, he seems okay. He is young, good - looking, which will make my visits more pleasant. And best of all he seems smart. That is important.
This picture is from his lobby, really it is the Duluth Clinic's lobby. That is the First Street Clinic, not the Third street clinic.
I wonder how many homes had to be bull dozed to build this building?
I grew up in this area over 50 years ago and people lived on this block. Some of the kids I went to school lived in this area. I use to walk this block to and from school. And yes it was up hill both way.
Now we have a big doctor's building here. Matter of a fact we have several new doctor's buildings in Duluth since I left twenty years ago. Duluth has not grown since then. Probably even has lost residents. What's up with that?
Hubby says we all got old and need medical attention. I just think they want to build new buildings.
Well back to my picture.
This is of the Pickwick Restaurant . I use to go there fairly often when I lived in Duluth. They had the best Steaks, Cheeseburgers, and the Onion Rings were unbelievable. When I went to their web site, I discovered that the Pickwick had new owners as of June.
We moved to Duluth in August and they were closed for remodeling at that time. Now we know why. Their web site promises that the old beautiful bar is still there. This bar was huge and beautiful. The whole building was beautiful and the view over looking Lake Superior was breath taking. I sure hope that they have not ruined that beautiful old building.
Hubby and I will need to check them out some day. Hope they still make a great order of Onion Rings. I will let you know.


  1. I would say the odds are getting better- fewer people but apparently more doctors. I hope it's not because the Deluth population is getting older and need more doctors. But that's generally the way it goes. If I ever get to Deluth, I would love to have some onion rings in that restaurant you mentioned. Good Luck.

  2. thanks for stopping by to visit. The onion rings are worth the trip if they have not changed them and the Duluth harbor is breath taking.
