Date Night at the Winery
Date Night at the Winery

North Shore Winery | Lutsen

We are open late on Thursdays, so grab your date and come down to the Winery for music from 5-7 p.m., music by Gordon Thorne.
Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues and jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls, “the modern sounds of yesterday – today”. Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota, it is where he spends his time working, raising kids, and playing a little guitar.

2021 Le Grand Du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic
2021 Le Grand Du Nord Gravel Cycling Classic

Le Grand represents one of the most amazing gravel courses in the United States. Beginning in Grand Marais, all three events have views of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations. With more than 5500 ft of climbing and a decidedly remote feel, the 110 mile course is beautifully challenging. The 54 mile course has plenty of climbing and miles of forested roads. The 20 mile route is a Le Grand-worthy introduction to gravel cycling with its mix of paved and gravel roads, climbing and great Lake Superior views.
