Made it to Grand Marais yesterday to pick up the girls. I skipped out on covering the Nationwide event outside of Rochester when I found out there was a rain delay, so we basically drove non-stop to see the girls.
We ate at Sven and Ole’s for dinner, although in hindsight, I would have gone to Chez Jude (from my seven in ’07 dining list). Turns out they are only open Tuesdays through Saturdays, so I missed my window there. Pizza at Sven and Ole’s is always good though.
For Father’s Day, I wanted to sleep in, eat chocolate-covered donuts from the World’s Best Donut Shop, eat at Chez Jude (oh well), play nine holes of golf with the kids at the Grand Marais nine-hole course, then head to the Grand Portage casino with my dad. It rained most of the day, so golf was also out.
The girls got me a couple of books–one on Everest and one on Isle Royale. We ended up eating lunch at the Angry Trout Cafe, where I tried something other than fish for the first time. The grilled chicken sandwich was very sloppy, but tasted good. Not sure where we are headed for dinner tonight…Originally published by DK on June 17, 2007 at 2:40 pm
