WHAT’S YOUR

LOVE LANGUAGE?

W

hen February hits and Valentine’s Day season is in the air, I always get a bit mushy. This month, I’m feeling soft and full of love from my friends from college, Fargo friends, work-family, actual family, pets and especially my wonderful fiancé, Keenan. In 1992, author and radio talk show host Gary Chapman published the book “The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.” In this book, he outlines that there are five love languages and that everyone has a primary and a secondary love language that rules how they give and receive love. Here are some (local!) ways to use the five love language theory to treat that someone special. 1. Acts of Service Spending an afternoon volunteering together is a great, out-of-the-ordinary date option. A few options include serving and organizing at Emergency Food Pantry, cooking meals at the Ronald McDonald House or playing with the dogs and cats at Homeward or 4 Luv of Dog. 2. Words of Affirmation According to the quiz, words of affirmation is my number one love language. I suppose, me being a writer and all, this makes sense. While verbal words are always cherished, one way you can remind your loved one of how much you admire them is through written notes. Zandbroz Variety has a number of stationary options that are ideal for writing sweet messages on.

3. Receiving Gifts To me, gifts are not about accumulating physical things, but the fact that someone I love saw something out in the world and purchased it for me because they thought I’d enjoy it. When giving gifts, the more personal the better. Whether that means some engraved jewelry, their favorite candle scent or luggage to bring on your travels together; give a gift with some thought put into it. 4. Quality Time That being said...the older I get, the more I appreciate quality time over physical gifts. My fiancé and I have gotten in the habit of giving each other concert tickets as a way to gift quality time together. A favorite “date” of ours is planning a weekend getaway to a nearby city, all centered around a concert. Luckily with venues like The Aquarium, Sanctuary, The Fargo Theater and Scheels Arena, there’s always a great concert to go attend together here in town, as well. 5. Physical Touch At least for me, a massage is rarely a gift that I will give myself, but it is a gift that I always want. For your loved one, consider giving them the gift of physical touch with a pampering massage. Local massage parlors include Revive Professional Massage Therapy Clinic, Elite Therapeutic Massage, Inspire Health & Wellness Spa and Tranquility Spa & Massage. With much love,

Alexandra Martin


MY

DATE

I

t was almost three years ago that I took Erin Slack on our first date. She was a tough cookie to crack at first and that made some amount of sense. We had been talking since January of that year and she had just gotten out of a bad relationship (putting it lightly). It maybe didn’t help that we were five years apart, me 23 and her 18. That looks odd to many on paper. Despite my being as polite and gentlemanly as I could all the time with her, she would never agree to go on a date. Not to profile my full dating history, but I maybe had one serious girlfriend my entire life before I met Erin. I think part of that was how horribly awkward I was and the fact that I guess I didn’t endlessly pursue anything. In retrospect, I guess I don’t care why I never had that mindset. So with limited experience in the dating world, I was stepping outside my comfort zone with this whole situation. Even talking to a girl was hard enough for me. Finally, after a month or so of convincing, she agreed to go on a date. We decided to go to Babb’s, a nice, quaint location for a first date, right? I was late. I’m never late for anything. She had already bought her own coffee, which upset me because the guy is supposed to do that. Needless to say, the date did not get off on the right foot. On top of that, remember that bad relationship she had before meeting me? That guy inexplicably turned up at Babb’s while we were there. Her mood changed and it made the date more awkward than it already was (all first dates are awkward). Never the less, I think we were still drawn to each other. She thought I was weird (which is accurate) and I liked her nose ring (there

were other things I liked Erin, but this was a big one in the beginning and I’m being funny). We started hanging out more and more. I took her to B.D.S. Books, one of my havens in town. I just don’t take any old person there, trust me. By May we decided to make it “official” and in June she was my date to a wedding and we took our first trip together (a getaway to Medora). I worked in Bismarck the first summer we were together and I would drive back to Fargo to see her every weekend. When I moved back to Fargo after the summer, I moved in with her. The rest is kind of history, I suppose. We still live together with a lazy cat and there is no shortage of “date nights” we haven’t seen since that day at Babb’s almost three years ago. It can be simple things like sushi or wild things like going to Winnipeg together. Each “date” we share together is special to me and I cherish them all. It also helps that I get to go home each day and see her face, our life is basically one long date. I wouldn’t trade that for anything. For me, a guy who did have much luck in dating, I would say I struck the jackpot. Looking back on it, that day at Babb’s could have gone so many ways, but I would never do it over again. That date led me to what I have now and that is a lifetime worth of date nights with the most amazing person ever. Love You, Babe!

Every home has a story. Some are custom builds with every detail planned out and others are a renovated work-in-progress. This month, we explored some homes with special stories to tell. From rebuilding after a devastating fire to designing and building a very first home, we are excited to share these homeownership stories with you!

It is important for your business to stay as efficient as possible in order to keep up with the fast-paced business world we live in. The best way to do this is usually through the implementation of the right technology. However, with so many options these days, it can be difficult to sift through the duds and find the right pieces of technology for your company. That’s where we come in, we interviewed some of the most forward-thinking technology companies in the Fargo Moorhead area to find out what pieces of tech they’re using to make their operations run smoothly.

Coming Soon!

2019 was a season of questions for North Dakota State football. Was this program in rebuilding mode? With a new coach, a new quarterback and a host of new faces on both sides of the ball, the rest of the FCS was salivating at the thought of knocking the Bison from their perch. But what ensued in 2019? The Bison only won 16 games That new quarterback? He was named the Walter Payton Award winner...as a redshirt freshman. Perhaps most importantly, the FCS programs that were hungry to knock the Bison out were left licking their wounds as the Bison devoured opponents en route to their eighth title in nine seasons. Not bad for a rebuild, huh?

We’ve compiled a variety of date night (or day or weekend!) events to be sure to take your special person to. This list has a little bit for everyone, whether you’re a teenager, an artist or an athlete, we think you’ll find something on this list that will make you see love in the air. 19


It’s a massive misnomer that one can be under 21 and not have fun in Fargo-Moorhead. Those that say that are just not looking hard enough at what the community has to offer for those who are not of age to go into a bar or have an alcoholic drink. For those who are not able to do that, there are a host of fun options for date night. From taking in one of Fargo’s most notable landmarks to enjoying an evening at the bowling alley, there is certainly enough for a very fun date night. Try some of these date ideas if you’re stuck in the rut of being under 21.

20 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


There are few landmarks in the city that compare to the Fargo Theatre. The sign outside is one of the legendary marks in the state of North Dakota and has spawned countless Instagram photos. However, have you ever been inside to see a movie or a show? While many in our community hold the Theatre in high regard, a great deal have never been inside for an event. The good thing for you and your partner is that the Fargo Theatre is not a 21 and over venue. From the most popular movies to concerts to comedy shows, the Fargo Theatre is a perfect place for it all. Couple that with it’s mystique and classic interior and you will have an unforgettable date.

Fargo Theatre: 314 Broadway N, Fargo. 21


Video games and interactive fun drives the millennial crowd nowadays and that crosses over into the dating scene for those under 21. Retro video games are making a comeback and gaining popularity by the day. Fargo is no stranger to that trend with a few places to enjoy classic (and current video games). Fargo Pinball is traditionally a member-only club, but through the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center, you can get a visitors card for just $10. Replay Games is not just a video game store in Downtown Fargo, but they also allow you to play video games there for an hourly fee. Lastly, Thunder Road features a classic arcade full of great games. On top of that, you can challenge your date to a laser tag war. Once the weather warms up, Thunder Road also offers go-karts, batting cages, bumper cars and one of the best mini-golf courses in the area.

Thunder Road: 2902 Thunder Rd S, Fargo Fargo Pinball: 1133 Harwood Dr S, Fargo Replay Games: 502 1st Ave N Ste E, Fargo 22 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Sports are something everyone can bond over in one way or another. Regardless of if your allegiances lie with a specific team or not, many dates revolve around sports. The great thing about local sporting events is that there is no age restriction, all you have to do is pay the price of admission. The Fargo Force is one of the hottest tickets in town, especially for those huge hockey fans. The Force’s schedule runs through April (not including playoffs), so there is no shortage of chances to see them. North Dakota State athletics offers several sports to enjoy throughout the winter and into spring. The men’s and women’s basketball teams play until March while track & field, baseball and softball all play until the end of the school year. Once summer hits, do not forget to check out the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks too.

Bowling is a sport everyone can get on board with. You don’t have to have any acute athletic ability or talent to be at least semi-good at bowling. Fargo-Moorhead has several bowling alleys that are perfect for an under 21 date (or even a first date for that matter). Not to mention, many of the bowling alleys offer student discounts if you happen to be in college. There are few things sweeter than getting free entertainment for a petty price (or even free in some cases). In that sense, you really cannot go wrong with bowling if you’re a budget-conscious, under 21 college kid. Both you and your date can appreciate that.

The Bowler: 2630 S University Dr, Fargo Red River Lanes: 707 28th Ave N, Fargo West Acres Bowl: 3402 Interstate Blvd S, Fargo Sunset Lanes: 620 US-75, Moorhead All-Star Bowl: 309 17th St N, Moorhead 23


We all have big days worth observing with something extra special. An anniversary, a birthday, a job promotion, purchasing a home...there’s a lot we can celebrate! Whatever you’re celebrating—big or small—it’s encouraged that you have a fancy date night to commemorate it. Here we have compiled some Fargo-Moorhead date night options for when you’re feeling upscale. Get a little dressed up and bring on the romance!

24 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


If dressing nice and eating incredibly well sounds like a good night to you, then Mezzaluna is the spot to go. The upscale environment and attentive staff make you feel like royalty, and the food always exceeds expectations. To plan for some savings, don’t miss their TWO happy hours, 5 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 11 p.m.

A trip to one of our local wineries makes for a perfect fancy date! Nothing says “sophistication” quite like sampling wines and discussing their flavor profile with your date. Whether you are a wine pro or not, heading to a local winery and sampling what they offer is a fun and educational experience. Some local wineries to check out include 4e Winery (Mapleton), Rookery Rock Winery (Wheatland), Maple River Winery (Casselton), Bear Creek Winery (Fargo), Dakota Vines Winery (Colfax) and Red Trail Vineyard (Buffalo).

Sometimes it just feels good to get away without REALLY traveling too far. A staycation is a great way for you and your sweetie to treat yourselves while easily returning to “the real world� within a day. To be close to the action of downtown while also experiencing luxury amenities, we recommend a stay at the Hotel Donaldson. In addition to the luxurious suites you can choose from, your stay at the Hotel Donaldson includes complimentary wine and cheese from 5 to 6 p.m., an artisan pastry basket delivered to your suite in the morning, Turndown truffle service and access to the rooftop hot tub. Plus, Fargo residents get a special locals discount.

The Fargo community sure knows how to throw a gala. Throughout the year, there are a number of galas to attend, most of which go to a good cause. You get to put on some heels or a tie, have great food and drinks AND it all goes to a great cause. What more could you ask for? Here are some upcoming galas to take note of: • Feb. 8: Ronald McDonald House Charities’ 31st Annual Sweetheart Ball • Feb. 8: A Singing Valentine Presented by Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists • Feb 20: 2nd Annual Belles & Blooms Presented by Hope Blooms • Feb 29: Trans Support Gala Presented by Tri-State Transgender (TSTG) • March 6: I Have a Voice Gala Presented by GiGi’s Playhouse Fargo

Fargo is fortunate enough to house both the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra and the Fargo-Moorhead Opera. Both of these musical organizations have performances throughout the year and are quite the treat. Going to one of these performances will allow you and your date to experience the talents within our community in a unique concert experience. You might even discover a newfound love for performing arts and music!

Tired of the same ol’ same ol’ dinner and drinks with your loved one? Ready to scratch your creative itch some? No better way to spice up your date routine than to step outside of the box and get creative! Get your hands dirty and create some art together or even concoct your own meal...when you start thinking about dates creatively, your options are limitless. Here are a few of our favorite date activities that go beyond the expected dinner-date options. 28 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Ready to heat up the kitchen? Take your date out to a cooking class at Square One! Depending on how skilled you two are in the kitchen, you can choose cooking or baking class levels at beginner, intermediate or advanced. Learn some essential teamwork skills while creating delicious treats you can make again and again. Upcoming classes include Lobster Dinner With Your Valentine with Bee Mittleider of Deep Blue Seafood; Enchiladas with Maria’s Homestyle Mexican Food; and Cheese 101 with Megan Lewis of Milk Made Catering.

Square One Kitchens: 1407 1st Ave N, Fargo.

Get your Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore on (1990 film “Ghost,” anyone?)! There’s no bonding experience quite like one of the Plains Art Museum’s most popular classes, Clay For Couples. Instructed by Hayden Swanson of Livin’ The Dream Pottery, learn introductory clay techniques and wheel throwing in an environment designed for duos. All the supplies for the class are included in the cost and space slots fill up fast, so be sure to book your spot soon!

There’s a lot you can learn about your partner about how they approach second-hand or vintage shopping. Do they carefully go garment to garment, searching for treasure? Or do they scan the aisle hoping for a fabric to pop out at them? Do they start with the clothing or are they more drawn to the knickknack section? The wide range of thrift or vintage shopping approaches makes the visit to a thrift store a fun date experience. The wide variety of goods these stores carry makes for an exciting discovery experience, even if you don’t end up purchasing anything...you never know what treasures you might find!

Fargo-Moorhead Vintage and/or Thrift Stores to check out: Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Thrift Store: 1001 4th Ave N 1601 32nd Ave S 619 13th Ave E, West Fargo; 1500 Center Ave W, Dilworth

Savers: 1623 38th St SW St. Francis Thrift Store: 1425 1st Ave S New Life Thrift Store: 221 19th St N

The Arc Attic Treasures: 255 N University Dr, 3201 43rd St S Goodwill: 4325 13th Ave S Suite #1 1525 32nd Ave S

Violet Vintage: 1 1/2 8th St S Now and Then Shoppe: 1333 7th Ave N Revolver 627 1st Ave N

Enjoy the national paint-and-sip phenomenon right here in Fargo! At Creatively Uncorked, you will be guided through step-by-step instructions on how to paint one of their many, many subject options, all with an adult beverage in hand. The purpose of this class is not to create fine art, but to create fun art and just have a good time. With no set-up or clean-up required, you can wet your painting whistle and enjoy a low-pressure, laidback night of painting. Hang up your final products at home and carry the memory of a great date night with you forever! 30 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Do you know what’s in the cards for you and your loved one? To get out of your comfort zone and try something really new, go on a date to get your cards read! If you’re not familiar, tarot cards are a deck of cards with spiritual symbols on them that each carries a specific meaning or piece of advice. It’s easy to think of them as the medium through which the Universe, Spirit or God (whichever one you connect with) communicates signs to you. Local businesses Beyoutiful Intuition and Psychic Medium Jodie Harvala both offer such intuitive readings, including tarot and oracle card readings. You’d be surprised how much you’ll connect with what these intuitive readers will reveal to you!


Interested in trying something new with your partner? Want to step outside the box and get a little adventurous with your date nights? Taking risks and being adventurous is part of our make up. While some people are more adventurous than others, there is no reason to not sprinkle something new into the same old dinner date. Are you and your partner dinner and movie people? Maybe try dinner and ax-throwing next time. While that may sound weird on a surface level, the experience would be a great way for a couple to explore new things Fargo-Moorhead has to offer. So why not try something outside the box today?

32 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Conquer Ninja: 3207 Main Ave Suite A, Fargo.

Everyone strives to be fit and you may even enjoy working out with your significant other at one of the area’s many local fitness facilities. However, you can’t necessarily call Monday, International Chest Day, a real date. While bench pressing and deadlifting with your partner is fun, we advise you to explore a different kind of fitness. This brand does not require you to rack your weights when you’re done either. Conquer Ninja in Fargo is perfect for those fitness enthusiasts who are looking for an endurance and agility challenge. They offer forth “ninja” style obstacle courses similar to the famous “Ninja Warrior” television series. Not only will this obstacle course be a challenge, but it is a fun way to compete against your partner. Nothing says “great date” quite like an obstacle course.

You don’t have to know how to use an ax to be able to throw it a target. That is what makes Triple Ax such a fun and different date for you and your partner. The only venue like it in Fargo-Moorhead, Triple Ax, will pit you and your partner against one another to see how is the best ax marksperson. Targets are set up a specific distance away and all you have to do is aim and throw. Be advised, it is not as easy as it looks and it may take you some time to get the hang of throwing an ax (unless you are a lumberjack, of course). Triple Ax even offers ax-throwing leagues if you and your partner become expert throwers.

Triple Ax: 5229 51st Ave S, Fargo. 33


Edgewood Chalet: 19 Golf Course Avenue N, Fargo. When the cold weather hits, most of us hole up in our homes and find a nice blanket to curl up with to keep warm. While there is no shame in that option, why not challenge the winter for your next date? Snowshoeing is a great way to stay in shape during the winter while also enjoying the chillier weather if you’re into that sort of thing. With the copious amounts of snow Fargo accumulates over the course of the winter, it makes the local parks a perfect place to snowshoe and explore. The Edgewood Chalet (operated by Fargo Parks District) has snowshoe routes and trails as well as snowshoe rentals during the winter season. Obviously, make sure to dress warmly too!

34 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Golf is obviously not in season during the winter months, so how can one get in the golfing mood when the courses are not open? There are several indoor golfing venues that give the impression of actually being on the links. Golf Addiction has five PGA Tour Simulators which allow you to play a host of courses from around the country. It also accurately projects how far and how accurate you’re hitting the ball. Don’t worry, if you shank one into the rough, Golf Addictions does have a full bar for you to forget about those duffers.

Golf addiction: 4474 23rd Ave S, Fargo.

If you and your partner are into gaming or are looking for something different for a date, Section Nine, a cyber cafe in Fargo offers a host of virtual reality experiences. Powered by Gravity Gaming, virtual reality gaming is gaining popularity across the gaming community. Section Nine has co-op stations so you and your significant other can play together. Section Nine also has a variety of gaming to partake in outside of virtual reality.

Section Nine: 1142 17th St N Suite A, Fargo. 35


Breaking the ice is the hardest thing to do on a date, regardless of how long you and your partner have been together. This is most challenging when couples are going on their first date. In most cases, the first date is the first actual meeting between two people and that can be intimidating for, well, everyone. Nowadays, the dating world revolves around social media and online dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and everything in between. This forces people to converse with one another on an intimate level before they even meet. However, what happens when that elusive date happens? Where do you go? And what do you talk about? In Fargo-Moorhead, the possibilities are endless, but there are a few options to consider if you take your first dates seriously.

36 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Beer is a great equalizer in the dating world. Good brews (and alcohol in general) usually loosen any tension or jitters that can come with a first date. The conversations flow easier and potential couples are able to settle in more when a beer is involved. Atmosphere also plays into this too as bars are usually bustling with activity and people enjoying themselves. While the traditional bar atmosphere may be a little “harsh” or “in your face” for a first date, any of the local breweries in town are perfect places to meet for the first time. Each offers forth enough personal space to carry on a conversation easily while still hosting an atmosphere of fun. Not to mention, you get a pretty good beer out of it too, as compared to sipping on a more traditional beer (no offense to domestic tappers out there). If you’re looking to stay loose and have a good time on your first date, these might be some places to explore:

Front Street Taproom: 614 Main Ave, Fargo Drekker Brewing Company: 1666 1st Ave N, Fargo Junkyard Brewing Company: 1416 1st Ave N, Moorhead Fargo Brewing Company: 610 N University Dr, Fargo PRO TIP: Patio season is right around the corner, take your first date to one of the many great patios when the weather warms up.

37


Two things are almost guaranteed to get a conversation on a first date: alcohol and caffeine. If alcohol is not really your style or if you’re looking to go on a first date during the day, local coffee shops are a perfect place to meet up. There is no shortage of fantastic artisan coffee shops in Fargo-Moorhead. As compared to your typical coffee shops like Starbucks, the local places here offer forth more complex beverages and a less crowded atmosphere to get to know one another. Who knows, after your cup of coffee, you may be wanting to grab a beer to keep the date going. Coffee shops are the perfect locale to break the ice.


Here are a few in town to explore:

20 Below Coffee: 14 Roberts St N, Fargo Black Coffee And Waffle Bar: 550 2nd Ave N, Fargo Babb’s Coffee House: 604 Main Ave, Fargo Third Drop Coffee: 115 4th St S, Moorhead Thunder Coffee: 300 Sheyenne St #190, West Fargo Young Blood Coffee: 623 2nd Ave N, Fargo


Some first dates are best served without tons of conversation. Perhaps you got to know each other well via text or instant messaging before the date. Or maybe you’re more introverted and conversation is not your strong suit (relatable). That’s okay too! One thing every human can agree upon is our love for music. Regardless of the genre or style you like, we as humans all share a love for music in one way or another. It is the great connective tissue of our society and music is easily transferrable to a first date setting. Consider using music and the local music venues to guide your first date. Maybe there is an artist you and your date are both fond of, go see them together. Personally, there may not be a better way to bond with someone. Enjoy the local music at these spots:

The Aquarium: 226 Broadway N, Second Floor, Fargo TAK Music Venue: 1710 Center Avenue, Dilworth Dempsey’s: 226 Broadway N, Fargo Hotel Donaldson: 101 Broadway N, Fargo


Sometimes it’s time for a little trip to get away from it all and to keep the spark alive. Exploring new places and trying new things creates memories that will be forever unique to your relationship. Also, taking a trip together allows couples to really get to know each other. True bonding can be experienced by spending every waking hour together and problem-solving tasks like navigating a new city or addressing travel woes (a flight was canceled, the car got a flat tire, you went to Canada and ran out of Canadian cash!) If you have a spare long weekend or are ready to cash in some vacation hours, check out these nearby getaways that make for a perfect date weekend.

42 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Arguably the most notorious of the Lakes Country destinations, Detroit Lakes is a guaranteed great weekend getaway. Only about an hour away, there are numerous things to do, see and eat year-round. In the summer, water activities and lake-side dining abound. Such notable datenight dinner spots include Spitfire Bar and Grill, The Fireside, Roasted Pub and Eatery and Hub 41...to name a few. In the winter, snow-filled activities are all around, including skiing and snowboarding at the world-famous Maplelag Resort or the Polar Fest February 6-17. Polar Fest is a celebration of the season, including a Poles ‘N Holes Fishing Derby, Polar Fest Plunge and a 5K Freeze Your Buns Run. You can’t go wrong at DL!

Get outta the country! To Winnipeg, Manitoba, that is. Highlights of your Canadian adventure should include visiting The Forks, a riverside community hub with lots of shopping, dining and recreational activities; the Assiniboine Park Zoo, an incredible 80-acre zoo; and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. After visiting all you must-see spots in the city, spend a whole day treating yourself to Winnipeg’s Thermëa by Nordik Spa Nature, just minutes from downtown. Thermëa has a whole schedule especially for couples, including an Aufguss ritual, a duo massage and a four-course gourmet meal in bathrobes at the Rësto. A day at this spa is well worth the trip all the way up to Canada.

A little over an hour away in Mahnomen, Minn. is Shooting Star Casino, Hotel and Entertainment. Shooting Star brings Las Vegas-style gaming to the midwest, along with big-name concerts, award-winning dining, soothing spa treatments, shopping and luxurious accommodations. Thanks to the hotel and numerous eating options on-site, you can check-in and not even have to leave the grounds all weekend! Upcoming concerts and shows to plan your trip around include The Romantics (Feb. 14), Joe Nichols (Feb. 28), FireHouse (Mar. 13) and Rodney Carrington (Mar. 27).

Located in the Sheyenne River valley is the beautiful Fort Random State Park. From horseback riding to cross-country skiing to camping to bird watching, there are many activities to be done here. For a truly unique experience to share on your Instagram, book your stay in one of their Yurts or the Percheron Wagon (a covered wagon that has been turned into a comfy and cozy living space). Practice your teamwork and rent a canoe to paddle the waters on or rent cross-country skis to see the scenery via. No matter what adventurous activity you choose, it’ll be a great opportunity for you and your date to try some new things and breathe in some fresh air.

Nestled seemingly in the middle of nowhere is the Coteau des Prairies Lodge. Perched on one of the many rolling hills of Havana, ND, this lodge allows you and your loved one to have a quiet weekend full of one-on-one time. Take time to educate yourselves and enjoy a farm tour learning about the agriculture and farmers of the land you’re staying on. To breathe in the country freshness, take a hike among the native prairie grasses and wildflowers and embrace that you are in a “bird watchers paradise.” Far away from it all, this trip is a perfect place to reconnect with each other and have some “us” time. 45

They can be savory and they can be sweet, but we have all the PIES you should try this month on lock.

Served with a side of mixed greens, this chicken pot pie from Nichole’s might have you reaching for a pillow after eating. Carrots, chicken and peas are intertwined with a homemade cream sauce to create the traditional inside of this comfort food favorite. Topped with a puff pastry, you may not make it back to work after this one. Nichole's Fine Pastry And Cafe

The Variety Pack

We could not select just one pie from The Shack on this day. Two meringue pies begin this variety pack in a coconut cream pie and sour cream and raisin pie. While the coconut cream pie is perfectly sweet, do not be deterred by the sour cream and raisin. Complete with bursts of cinnamon, this pie is as sweet as they come. Finally, this variety pack came with a mixed berry pie. The perfectly flaky crust works beautifully with the sweetness of the berries. Don’t forget the coffee! The Shack On Broadway

Shepherd's Pot Pie

There is nothing quite like a Shepherd’s Pie. Served in a mini cast-iron skillet, Crooked Pint sticks to the classic recipe. Ground beef and fresh veggies are joined together in homemade gravy. Once that base is created, Crooked Pint tops the mixture with mashed potatoes. To top it all off, they melt fresh parmesan over the top of the mashed potatoes. Hope you brought your comfy pants!

Blueberry Kuchen

Is kuchen a pie or a cake? While the word “kuchen” literally means cake in German, we refuse to take a stance in this potential argument. The base of kuchen is similar to a pie with eggs, flour, sugar and fat. This delicacy from Kroll’s features fresh blueberries within it as well, adding a nice sweet touch for fans of this classic Midwest desert. Kroll's Diner

The beautiful thing about most pie is that it’s portable. Grab a slice from your favorite spot around town and have it for later. At Deaner’s Diner, they have a host of scratch-made pies to choose from. On this day, we went with the rhubarb custard pie. Complete with a crumbly and flaky crust, this pie features a good sweetness from the custard which is balanced out by the rhubarb. Even if you are not a fan of rhubarb, it should not deter you from having this delectable slice.

Made Easy

Picture this: you have a romantic night out planned for you and your beloved. You have a blueprint for a perfect evening. You’ll begin with a shared meal at your favorite Downtown Fargo eatery followed by some cocktails to enjoy together or a shopping spree at a local boutique. You pull up onto Broadway… and wonder where to park. I’m certain most of the downtown neighborhood’s residents and visitors can relate to this situation. I think for some there is a perception that downtown might be short on parking, or that spots are hard to find. In reality, that simply isn’t the case.

cross most of the Fargo metro, we are blessed enough to have ample parking for everyone who lives, studies and works here. Almost every restaurant or storefront has its own dedicated space to accommodate customers. On-street parking and surface lots are plentiful in most places. The downtown district is different. It’s a true urban neighborhood, and the location of its parking reflects that.

parking, but given how busy that area typically is, it isn’t enough. The Fargo City Commission recognized this need in 2015 when it conducted a comprehensive downtown parking study. The results were clear. There was a parking deficit in the core area of downtown of roughly 500 spaces. Following the study, the Commission has taken action to not only meet parking needs but to stay ahead of demand.

​ he City of Fargo felt it was important to T intelligently incorporate new parking spots. Relying too heavily on on-street parking


wasn’t a realistic long-term solution. The parking study concluded mixed-use ramps with ample parking could address the downtown’s needs. Since that study, one such garage has been constructed and another is on the way. The Roberts Commons (or RoCo for short) garage opened in June 2017. RoCo accommodates parking for more than 450 cars, and dozens of bicycles as well. It also incorporated a user-friendly model, operating fee-free in the evenings and on weekends. Parking is also free on evenings and weekends at the Civic Ramp along 4th Street N. The two ramps allow any visitor to the downtown neighborhood to park within a five-minute walk of any potential destination. Parking is only becoming more accessible. Ground broke in December on the Mercantile Ramp, located along Broadway and 4th Avenue N. The Mercantile Ramp will add 369 parking spots to the

downtown neighborhood by November of this year. Not only is it adding more parking, but it’s closer to many downtown eateries and shops. The mixed-use ramp will also be home to commercial and residential spaces thanks to the City’s partners.

to compare it to the state of parking in other metros with urban neighborhoods (read: Twin Cities). It’s far too common to spend a quarter-hour cruising aimlessly, searching for a single vacant spot. I am glad Fargo’s Downtown does not, and will not, suffer the same problem.

The public-private partnership model used when making the ramps helps enrich the downtown as well by spurring additional development. After parking in the RoCo ramp, you’re only steps away from new boutiques, eateries and other shops. This walkability is one of our downtown’s attributes which make it a regional destination. The Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) deserves some commendation as well, for keeping sidewalks and crosswalks clear and traversable following even the nastiest of winter storms.

The next time you’re at the beginning of a magical night with your special someone, a girls’ night out or just a quick bite in the downtown, consider the parking ramps. There is plenty of space, they are usually free and with all of the action-packed into the downtown, you never know what new experience you might discover during a short stroll. With plentiful parking, even in the middle of winter, Fargo’s arts and entertainment core can truly offer far more.

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

Building a Healthy Culture at Work 52 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Dr. Sue Mathison is the founder of Catalyst Medical Center and Clinical Spa. She is a Stanford educated, triple-board certified physician who has received numerous accolades for leadership and Top Doctor for her clinical skills. Dedicated to the community, she is involved in the Dakota Medical Foundation, TedXFargo, The Choice Financial Board and more!

We spend many of our waking hours at work. In our quest to lead happy and successful lives, we need to be intentional about making work a positive part of our existence. The ultimate goal is to create an ongoing culture of well-being that supports us all in our health, happiness and performance goals. This, in turn, creates happy, healthy and successful companies that create lasting impact. A good culture is described as a benevolent invisible hand that guides individuals to make the right choices for themselves and the greater good. Dr. David Hunicutt and the team at Dakota Medical Foundation have created a holistic company wellness program called P5 that provides the building blocks for healthy work. The P’s stand for Purpose, People, Places, Practices and Performance. While standing desks, taking the stairs and choosing apple slices instead of fries are important, P5 starts with a mindset, meaning and relationships. Here are brief definitions of each pillar: Purpose: Purpose helps you get out of bed every morning with that good feeling that you will help create meaningful products, services and experiences. My purpose as

a physician at Catalyst is to ease suffering and to help patients AND my employees lead happier, healthier, more beautiful lives. My receptionists are the Voice of Catalyst as they answer the phone, schedule appointments and greet patients with a smile. How can you dig a little deeper to see the greater purpose of your role?

Practices: Practices such as “Know Your Numbers,” health education, walking meetings, water and step challenges, and healthy meeting foods are examples of encouraging small changes that can have a big impact over a lifetime. This is where apples versus fries comes in.

People: Good relationships are vital for good health. Even introverts need people! Focus on getting to know your work family. There will always be moments of conflict, but learning how to move through disagreements with grace is not just a work skill, but a life skill. Have good conversations that are not just about work. Involve real family and work families in events. Have fun! I believe we all deserve to enjoy life, and if we look around with a sense of wonder and gratitude, you can always find something to enjoy, even in your cubicle!

Performance: “You cannot manage what you cannot measure… and what gets measured gets done,” said Bill Hewlett of Hewlett Packard Corporation. This goes not only for company production but also for employee satisfaction and engagement. Most companies find productivity soars with happy, engaged employees.

Places: From the physical layout to the color on the wall, it’s possible to create environments that enhance healthy and productive workplaces that are good for the employee and the client or patient. I’ve been around long enough to have witnessed the construction of Essentia Hospital and the new Sanford Hospital. Both are masterpieces of intentional design for employee and patient care. On a much smaller scale, I designed Catalyst to be cozy, welcoming and full of natural light and local art.

How can you help build a healthy culture at work? Remember, or discover your WHY at work. Get to know your colleagues. Make your space enjoyable and productive. Develop good healthy habits at work. Enjoy and celebrate your successes, and be grateful for the team that helps you achieve them.

MEET THE

BRICK T

his month we are celebrating our 10th Annual Unglued: Craft Fest and met up with Ben Brick who designed our epic poster this year!

By Ashley Morken, Unglued Photos and Artwork Provided By Ben Brick

54 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Tell us about yourself: I do branding work through our collaboration in Bismarck called “The Goodkids”. My wife and son claim most of my spare time. We watch Mr. Rogers, explore the neighborhood and throw dance parties to my son’s Mickey Mouse record. We know how to have a good time. Describe what you create under BRICK? I’ve heard it’s vintage, fun, yet dark. One person described it as crashing the American dream, which I hope is true. I take inspiration from old Boys Life magazines and Hannah Barbara cartoons and do my best to blend it with satire. Tell us about your illustration process: It tends to be a little fluid but here’s the most common. On cheap paper, I scribble a mess until I realize I have no idea what I’m

doing. So, I usually act it out with a camera to get a rough idea. It’s never cool to have a stache of awkwardly dramatic poses of yourself but you have to do what works for you. From here, I rough in composition using the reference photos. Then, I like to ink with a brush or Wacom tablet depending on the look we are going for. After that, I color or halftone in photoshop. A big part of every project’s process is a distinct moment where I hate everything about it and I don’t know if I can make it work. But it’s really important to push through that feeling. Work on it till you’re about 90 percent happy with it, then ship it! Favorite medium to work with: Ink - I have always been a fanboy of cartoonists like Milton Caniff, Dr. Suess, Darwyn Cooke. When I started I ruined at


least 100 sketches, but now, I don’t even really like my pencil work until there’s that nice contrast of ink on top of it! What is your favorite thing about having a maker business? I love disrupting “The way it’s always been done”. One thing I noticed - when you have a day job it can be very difficult to move in the opposite direction of the crowd. Being the boss makes it infinitely easier to tackle problems in your unique way which is extremely important.

it for two years. It sounds like a huge risk. You might waste two years but I think it’s much riskier to change your mind often. Our world changes quickly but I don’t think individuals should operate that way. Building good things takes time so if you can, start today.

What is the most challenging thing? Finding time to work on big personal projects.

You were this year’s Unglued: Craft Fest poster designer! Can you tell us about the inspiration behind the design and/or story happening in it? Ashley Morken is a brainstorming champ and so much fun to work with. I mainly tried not to mess up her vision. 10 years is a really big deal and I was extremely flattered to be a part of it.

Word that best describes you? Scamp - I’ve heard this a few times and I can’t help but hope it’s true.

I didn’t really have a story in mind when I made it but if I did it would go a little like this:

How do you stay inspired to create? Learning and introspection. I just got done researching artists like Franz Kline and my wheels have been spinning all day to find a way to use those beautifully chaotic lines.

There once lived a crafter who hated being a princess. It was so boring and predictable, all she wanted to do was make arts and crafts for her animal friends, but she had no supplies. Every day she would look down at the Unglued fest wishing she could be a part of their world and maybe even one day have a little booth of her own, but this was not possible. The evil king Bison Piñata hated

What advice would you have given yourself 10 years ago? Pick something you want to do with your life in a 10-minute brainstorm and stick to

craft supplies and forbid her from using them, sticking her in the highest bell tower. One day her talking bird friend encouraged her. “Go to the Unglued Fest already,” he said with a weird lisp. “Live your dreams.” It took some convincing but when she finally found enough sheets she climbed down. There she discovered the king enjoying the fest and a cold glass of glitter. Little did she know, the king was hoarding all the craft supplies for his very own and he didn’t do heck with any of it. “To think,” she thought. “All that creativity just waiting to come out.” That’s only chapter one, of course, but you get the idea. How do you feel the community can best support makers? I think most makers rely on word of mouth and encouragement. Makers spend a lot of time alone with their craft and usually need help with these two things. If you want to see more of someone’s work in your community, be an advocate. How can we stay in touch?

THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL

By Alex Cyusa Photo Provided By Officer Michael Bloom

SERVING OUR

Community A CONVERSATION WITH COMMUNITY TRUST OFFICER MICHAEL BLOOM. Snowy Greetings! Allow me to introduce you to an exceptional person I was fortunate to collaborate with during summer 2016. Officer Michael Bloom, originally from California, chose to call Fargo home a decade ago and chose a valiant vocation: law enforcement. The fascinating aspect of Officer Bloom is that within this complex occupation he is a Community Trust Officers (CTO) making him work very closely with the youth, which is how we got to collaborate in the Jefferson neighborhood. Officer Bloom uses his love for rapping to impact and connect with the youth. This is why he composed songs with Billboard artist DPB called UNITY in December 2017 and IT’S TIME in November 2018. Both can be found on YouTube.

If you ever cross his humble path you will be drawn to him because of his infectious smile and care for others The youth of Fargo are lucky to have such a Community Trust Officers using all his skills and gifts to keep them safe! Until our snowy paths cross, Stay Warm! -Alex Cyusa

Tell us your story of coming to the Fargo/Moorhead area?

In 2007 I realized I needed more in my life than just school and sports. I wanted more in my life. At the time I was living in Modesto, California, and was totally unhappy with how my life was going. I remember making a faith step and turning my life over to Jesus. It was at that moment I just felt like I needed to live for something more, although at the time I didn’t know what that looked like. My sister was living in Moorhead at the time and I felt like I should try some new scenery and made to the move to the Midwest.

Where did your love for serving the community as Law Enforcement come from? This passion really began while I was working as a Corrections Officer at the Cass County Jail. It was at that time I started to realize I loved helping people navigate through their problems. I wanted to invest in a community of people that many forget about and I knew if I jumped ship at the jail and went to the PD I could expand my influence and also grow more as a person.

Why do you care so much about the youth?

Youth have a soft spot on my heart. I meet so many kids who did not ask for the 58 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


circumstances they are currently living in, but because of poor family choices they are stuck in a hard place. Youth need to know they still have a purpose in life no matter what they are going through. I just want to keep helping Youth discover their purpose and chase their goals.

How can people get involved with the work you do?

Call the Police Department (701) 235-4493 and ask for my voicemail. I will do my best to get back to someone within the same week that they call. People reach out a lot with ideas of collaboration. Sometimes we can make something work and sometimes it’s not the right fit for our programming. It’s wonderful to meet new people.

How is the FM area doing when comparing with your colleagues around the nation working in similar rural communities?

The whole metro area is a special place. Just look at Giving Hearts Day for example. We have one day where a whole community comes together to give for a cause that will change so many lives. Fargo specifically is on the same page

as a community that people matter. Our local schools have great Principles that we partner with and many non-profit groups are doing excellent work in our city. Groups like Charism, Boys and Girls Club, and Legacy Children’s Foundation are all doing an excellent job to help the youth of our city.

Where did this passion for rapping come from? Why is it important for the work you do?

I have loved rap music since I could remember. I used to rap with a Karaoke machine when I was six years in my living room most mornings when I wasn’t in school. So many of the youth that I work with share my passion for Hip-Hop music. I have learned to reach the audience you trying to impact you have to learn what language they speak. Many kids speak raps language. They relate to it, dream of doing it themselves someday, or just love to dance and make videos to show on social media. I think rap is greatest tool that I have to network with kids.

What stereotype from the Law Enforcement would like to change? Why?

I want people to know that Officers care about them regardless of what they have done. I feel like many people see Officers as people who do not always care about their communities, and this is just not the case. I have seen to many acts of bravery and community support in our department. Time after time our Officers go above and beyond the call of duty to help people.

What would you like the world to know about the Fargo/Moorhead area?

The FM area is not just a community, but a family. From saving each other’s homes during major floods or rallying around great organizations to help them meet the needs of people, our city cares for the needs of others. That is something you won’t find in every community.

culinary spotlight

food STORIES

T

his cookie has a story, as most foods do. This is especially true when you find yourself making something you haven’t made in a long time. These memories were stirred up by a recent request to make a Spanish cookie for an art exhibit. Immediately, this recipe came to mind though I hadn’t made it in years. A sweet, crunchy, slightly citrus almond cookie with the simplest of ingredients, shared with me by a friend from Spain. I highly encourage everyone to meet people from other parts of the world or even other parts of the country. Learn about their culture, food and their story. Many foods have been introduced to me by my Spanish friend, Enrique. We met when he moved to Fargo to attend NDSU. He showed me how to make chorizo in a cupboard in my garage (I still consider this to be one of the bravest things I’ve ever done), cook my first (and currently only) octopus and we made these cookies at Square One before it officially opened.

By Casey Steele, Owner of Square One Kitchens Photo By Nolan Schmidt 60 | FEBRUARY 2020 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Moscovitas Memories associated with this recipe brought me to a very grateful state of mind. Remembering all our friends helping as we ripped up carpet, tack strips, tore down walls, built new walls and painted Square One so my culinary incubator dreams could be a reality. It was tedious and hard work but our friends gladly showed up to help us out. This showcases how making a specific food or dish can bring you back and make you think about things you may have not thought about in a while. When we made these cookies before opening, there was nothing inside the walk-in cooler - not even shelves. The concrete was freshly painted and I had made some very bold paint choices for the walls. Let’s just say my style has been refined since then. Though my memory may be quite awful at times, all these images came back to me quickly when I fired up the oven to make these crispy sweets again. What is this cookie that has brought me to think about grateful and wonderful experiences? That’s a good question! It’s moscovitas. These cookies hail from Asturias, a region in northwest Spain. They are very well known there and I hope to someday travel to Spain to compare mine to the OG moscovitas. Once again, we are focusing on simple ingredients, prepared together to create something delicious. Food doesn’t need to be fussy to be delightful. Don’t get me wrong though, there are some mighty fussy foods that are well worth the effort!

• Prep Time: 15 minutes • Bake Time: 12-15 minutes • Yield: 16-20 cookies

Ingredients: • • • • • •

100 grams Whole Almonds, raw 100 grams Sugar 100 grams Cream Zest of 1 Orange 20 grams All-Purpose Flour 125 grams Chocolate (dark or milk, your preference)

Directions • In a 350-degree oven, toast almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer for 8-10 minutes until fragrant and starting to brown, shake the pan at about 5 minutes to stir the almonds. While the almonds are toasting measure out 20 grams of flour in a small bowl. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, measure out 125 grams of chocolate. If you are using a chocolate bar, cut/shave it into thin strips using a knife to help it melt more easily. • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats. • Place toasted almonds in a food processor and process until the pieces are similar in size to dried rice. Be sure not to over blend as it will become almond butter! • Reduce heat to 325F. • Weigh your sugar and cream into a saucepan. Add the zest of an entire orange, being careful not to grate into the white pith portion of the orange peel. We only want the flavorful, thin outer layer. • Stir cream, sugar and zest together. Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring often. • Once the mixture has reached a full boil, remove from heat and stir in the flour. Whisk well. Add the processed almonds and stir thoroughly. • Using a 1-½ teaspoon cookie scoop place level scoops of batter about 4” apart on the lined baking sheets. These cookies do spread a lot and become very thin so you want to make sure they don’t run into each other while baking. You could also use a heaping 1 teaspoon measuring spoon instead of the cookie scoop.

Almonds. Cream. Sugar. Flour. Orange Zest. Chocolate. That’s all you need! The following recipe is by weight, which is the most accurate way to bake and increases your success rate. I hope you pull an old recipe from your book and make something you haven’t in a while.

Rolling Stone has described him as a “Waylon Jennings acolyte.. modern-day outlaw [with a] hard-hitting blue-collar brand of music” while NPR Music hailed, “Staying close to the sound and subject matter of classic outlaw artists like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe, Morgan is poised to lead this hand-worn brand of country to the next generation.” jadepresents.com Sanctuary Events Center 670 4th Ave N
