“A Taste of Russia” is part of Zeitgeist’s ‘Spirit of Duluth Dinner & Film Series’ and every month, from October through April 2018, we invite you to experience the culture and insights of some inspiring and truly original Duluth residents through food, film, and personal stories. Through sharing a meal, watching a film and engaging in conversation every month we’ll connect people who might not otherwise meet.

Each event will be uniquely organized and hosted by Duluthians who represent the culture being highlighted and will feature a specially crafted gourmet dinner curated by the host that will allow guests to experience the taste of the cuisine as they hear the story behind it. At Zeitgeist we know that Duluth is stronger as a creative, diverse community. We’re committed to building connections between people of different cultures and encourage you to join us for what is sure to be a fun, informative and culturally rich experience.
