I was really bummed when I heard that Tycoon's Restaurant was closing.  I loved their Chicken Florentine and Hummus Platter.  I have lots of great memories at Tycoon's.  The history of this building is amazing, it's the old City Hall.  My daughter celebrated her 18th birthday in the Treasury Room upstairs and when I was coach of the Denfeld Cheerleaders we held our banquet in the Council Chambers.  I plan on continuing to make memories in this historic building with it's new endeavor, the opening of a gastropub called, The Blind Pig.


The Blind Pig Gastro Pub & Ale House at 132 East Superior Street in downtown Duluth will open for businesses on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

You may have just asked yourself  the following questions:

  • What is a gastropub?
  • What kind of food, beer and libation will they serve at The Blind Pig?
  • Will The Blind Pig have live music like Tycoons did?
  • Will the Rathskeller still be open?

This video will answer all your questions and give you a sneak peek.

Thanks to Rod Raymond and Marissa and Andrew of Just Take Action for their time and information.
