A Perfect Day In






4 6


8:30 AM After the pet’s bellies have been filled and emptied, we stroll over to Sandy’s Donuts for breakfast of our own. Living this close to Sandy’s is dangerous for our waistlines, but every once and a while it is totally worth it. Our favorites are the Angel Iced Bismarck, Blueberry Cake Donut and the S’mores Donut. 1


2 PM Our puggle, Taz, spends most of the day snuggled on the couch dreaming of chasing rabbits. As soon as we open the cabinet where her leash is hidden, she playfully skips across the wooden floor in anticipation. She knows we are heading to the park. We like bringing her to the walking paths around Veteran’s Memorial Fields. The paths go around the baseball diamonds through pretty wooded areas. Just across the street is Elmwood park, which is another great community area, including shelters for larger gatherings. 3



9:30 AM We spend the rest of the morning doing some yardwork. We love living in a neighborhood with beautiful mature trees and other wildlife and being so close to the Sheyenne river. 12:30 PM We grab lunch at the neighborhood café, Deaner’s Diner. At heart, West Fargo is still a small town and Deaner’s is the small down diner. The staff is friendly, the portions are big and the prices are reasonable. You can get a full dinner with soup or salad and two sides for under 10 bucks.


7 AM Zeus, our feline alarm clock, makes the subtle suggestion that it is time for breakfast by perching on one of our foreheads. As we crawl out of bed, Taz, our food-obsessed puggle, is excitedly tapdancing around the kitchen in anticipation for her meal.


7 PM We head out for dinner and drinks at the local bar and grill, The Silver Dollar. The Dollar secretly has the best wings in town. The wings are smoked and then fried. They are crispy and crunchy on the outside, and yet, so tender they fall off the bone. Admittedly, they don’t have much for sauces, but the wings are perfect on their own. And on Thursdays, they are only 50 cents a wing! 4

10 PM If we are feeling wild, we could invite some friends and go on a Sheyenne Corridor pub crawl. The Town Hall, VFW and M & J Saloon are all within walking distance if the weather is nice. The VFW recently remodeled and is open to anyone, not just members. On Tuesdays, they have a great deal where you can get a pitcher of beer and a pizza for $11. 5
