"You don't HAVE to.

You GET to."

J

odi Roper, the owner of the Cyclebar located in Fargo, said this during the 5:30 a.m. cycling class our photographer and I participated in for this issue (check out page 22). It was a reminder that we don't HAVE to push our bodies to the extreme for the purpose of working out, but we GET to while knowing that some people don't have that luxury. Her words stuck with me for the rest of the class, as I left and went about my day, and even to now, weeks later. It was a good motivator for not only the exercises we were doing but also became a daily motivator for the perspective I want in living my life. This past month was a crazy one, especially throwing the holiday season and some travel plans into the mix. A lot had to get done and I constantly felt as if I was running out of time. The rushed tone in the air was

taking the joy out of what I was doing — whether it was work, friends, church or community involvement — and I wasn't feeling present. "You get to" was a wakeup call for me. Really, I don't HAVE to do any of this. Do I have responsibilities in different areas of my life? Yes, I do. Would it be awful if I ignored those? Yes, it would be, and I'll always, to the best of my ability, follow through on my promises. But when you start to live your life out of obligation, your passion and drive don't have room to motivate you anymore. Preparing January's issue was a different process for me and involved a lot of work in a short amount of time and without Jodi's reminder, it could have easily turned into a chore. But instead, I'm thankful for what this process has shown me: FargoMoorhead is full of awesome business leaders and innovators that have some crazy

dreams. I have an incredible opportunity to connect with these people, hear all about how their dreams have come to life within the past year and share their stories with you. I'm sad to say, though, that I don't know if I would have ventured out to see what these places had to offer if I hadn't done this issue and it makes me wonder what else about our wonderful community I've missed out on. I can say with certainty that I'll never make that mistake again. I hope this issue encourages you to try new things — even if you think you won't like it, even if it's scary, even if it's outside of your comfort zone, even if you don't think you have time. We don't HAVE to love, serve or participate in this community. We GET to. Be kind and go explore,

Kara Jeffers, Editor

NEW BUSINESSES WE LOVE In the past year or so, doers and innovators in the Fargo-Moorhead area have been busy turning their dreams into realities. From restaurants to boutiques to spas, here's a look at many of the local businesses that have opened their doors to our beloved community.

IN TOWN

REESE & RILEY’S Christine Diebel was looking for ways to pursue a healthier lifestyle and came across olive oils and balsamic vinegar in her research. "I never really liked either product and as I researched, I found out the reason why was because the U.S.

16 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

doesn't regulate extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar," Diebel said. "What a lot of consumers don't realize is they aren't getting the real deal when they purchase it from supermarkets or even some specialty stores."

This realization led Diebel, who is originally from Fargo, to want to share her knowledge about food quality in this area and, after doing her research, to bring the community Reese & Riley's Olive Oil & Bistro Bar, a Mediterranean restaurant that opened on Nov. 7.


Bistro All of Reese & Riley's products are incorporated into every dish. "Even if you don’t traditionally consume oil and vinegar, you can come in and try it with what you’re ordering," Diebel said. They don’t use any other fat or seasonings at Reese & Riley's because many of the flavors are infused with the oils and vinegar. "They're so true to their names, too, because they aren’t artificially flavored," she said. "The flavors come from the extracts of the herbs, fruits and vegetables, so it’s the real deal. The oil is 100 percent olive oil, and everything is tested before it’s imported to make sure the quality and freshness are all there without other fractionated oils." They also serve beer and wine to complement the food and have a grab-and-go olive bar.

Tasting Room The retail side comes in with Reese & Riley's tasting room, where they have olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste test and purchase. "There are more than 70 different flavors of olive oils and balsamic vinegar, but then you can also mix them, creating hundreds of unique flavors to use," Diebel said. Catering She has started catering to local businesses with the goal of getting them out of the realm of the same food that they traditionally order with hopes to also build on renting the space out. "I think I have four or five weddings already for the summertime and some businesses that want the entire restaurant for office parties," she said.

Community Diebel made the decision to do a soft opening for her new restaurant. "I feel like people are always running before they are walking and then they fall flat on their face," she said. "I want sustainability. This isn't a place to go when you want to go out to eat, this is an experience. People come here to gather around farm tables with their family and friends, turn off their cell phones, indulge in real, homecooked food and have actual conversations."

Education Diebel doesn't know if she'd classify herself as a restaurant. "It's a different category because it's all about education," she said. "Regardless of whether people purchase their oils or vinegar from me, I do want them to have a great time while they’re here, but I also think that with knowledge comes power. When you are educated in your buying abilities, you tend to make better choices and decisions and that’s the only thing that’s going to alter this industry. For it to eventually become regulated, people are going to have to put their foot down."

IN TOWN

WILD TERRA CIDER AND BREWING Wild Terra Cider and Brewing opened its doors at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 to a line of people already gathered and retained a full house for the rest of the evening. Owners Ethan and Breezee Hennings took some time to answer questions about their new business.

Where did the idea and name for Wild Terra come from? We are passionate about being adventurous and appreciating nature, not just in action, but also in flavor. We have always thought we were just two wild kids so the name made sense to us. How long have you been in the process — from the moment the idea was born to opening day? Ethan has been a homebrewer for many years and I think anyone that homebrews or is passionate about craft would agree we have all thought about owning our own space. But when we really started to work on the manifesting of our dream to start Wild Terra was about two and a half years ago. What has been the most difficult part of pursuing this dream? Our pursuit was two-fold. First, we were going to start North 18 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Dakota's first Urban Cidery and Cider Bar. Most people we told this to thought we were crazy and were extremely skeptical. So just convincing people cider was exciting was one thing. Secondly, we took on the huge task of renovating a 100+-year-old horse barn ourselves. Almost every step of that was a struggle. What are you most excited about Wild Terra opening? We are most excited to showcase the diversity cider has to offer. Not only are we going to carry our own Wild Terra Cider but other producers as well. Some may think this is foolish but we are passionate about craft and we wanted to have the opportunity to shine a light on all the different profiles cider can have. Just having our own wasn’t going to be enough. Cider can be so many more things than just sticky sweet and we are so excited to help people discover craft cider.


How do you think your business will have a positive impact on the Fargo-Moorhead community? Starting this fall, we will start an urban gleaning campaign that will begin by picking as many local apples as we can from residents in the FargoMoorhead area. Then we will start pressing this juice and making it into delicious local cider. We hope this continues to show the community that local is a better product. Secondly, we feel strongly about appreciating and taking care of "terra," so we are going to sponsor outdoor recreation activities and host several campaigns where we as a group clean up a wildlife area (such as along the Red River) and then everyone that participates gets to come back to the taproom and get a free drink on us. You will have a lot of fun areas and rooms in the building. What is your favorite thing about your space? Wild Terra Cider Breezee: When I designed and Brewing the space, I wanted everyone wildterraciderandbrewing.com to have a good time and 6 12th St. N, Fargo feel relaxed, so all the lights and furniture are beautiful, practical and comfortable. Also, I love the wood on the walls. I personally denailed and sanded all the wood, as it is original to the building. I hated it at the time, but now seeing it up, it's really wonderful. Ethan: The bar top and both booth pieces all came from the same 200-year-old white oak tree. I would say that is my favorite thing, but the building’s original ceiling that we preserved is a close second. How has Wild Terra been received? So far the community has been really positive about our menu and space. We are continuing to think of what we as craft drinkers want to see and what would excite our patrons, so we have lots of surprises up our sleeves.

IN TOWN

LEELA & LAVENDER At the end of February, Vanity closed its doors in the retail world. Jill Shea and Laura Polanski didn't see this as losing a job they've been doing together for 12

years but instead as a sign to embark on a retail journey they'd been dreaming about for years, leading them to open leela & lavender on Oct. 25.

20 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Shea and Polanski have had retail in their blood for a long time, and both loved the mall retail scene. As retail was evolving, however, they started to see many ways it could be done differently. "It was starting to become really promotional and heavy with tables of merchandise," Shea said, "and we always thought retail could be more special and fun." They had conversations about what they would like to see in retail, daydreaming about what it would look like to open their own store. Then when Vanity announced it would be closing its doors, "all of those ideas over the course of many years, we really began talking seriously about them and decided to go for it," Shea said. Style and fun for everyone "With all of our buying background, choosing what to sell should be the easiest part for us," Polanski said. "I think it's just knowing what women want and need. Our biggest

thing is going after items we feel are important for any woman's wardrobe: staples and fun, trendy pieces that are different and unique. We look at every aspect of a woman's life — work, casual, dressy — and try to find the best in each category. "We also love the gift aspect. That's something we don't have a lot of background in, but I would say is one of the most fun things we have added. Again, we picked out things that resonated with us, hoping it would resonate with others and things that had a sense of humor. We want people to be laughing and having fun with their friends." In every category, Shea and Polanski also tried to have a range of prices, from moderate all the way up to premium. "We want to hit the trendy college students' budgets all the way up to someone who might want to invest a little more in a pair of jeans or shoes," Shea said.


Leela & lavender also offers free style sessions. By filling out a form online, they'll contact shoppers, asking their sizes and what type of clothing they're looking for. When they come in, the dressing room is ready for them. "People can come in and get a little extra one-on-one time with one of our style catalysts," Polanski said. "Her sizes are already pulled so she doesn't have to take the time to go through the whole store." "When we're talking about our store, we have a lot of conversations about not only honoring our customers' wallets but also her time," Shea said. "We want to be respectful that she's busy but can still come in and get an outfit for whatever event is happening in her life." Leela & lavender not only wants to be open to different budgets and schedules but also ages. "Everyone keeps asking, 'who is your target?' We just say, 'we don't have a target,'" Polanski said.

leela & lavender leelaandlavender.com 3265 45th St. S, Suite 116, Fargo

"Fashion is not about age, it's about taste. We've said that the whole time. Just because you're 70 or you're 16, it shouldn't matter. You hear so often, 'I'm too old to wear that' or 'that's too young.' Those stereotypes don't make sense. It's clothes. You should wear what you like and feel comfortable in. All women can shop together." Giving back "We've had so much local support since we've opened," Shea said. "We are also trying to partner with people who are local as well as those who give back. "We knew when we started our business that we wanted to be a force for good and pay it forward. We're partnering with FM Women's Foundation and on our opening night, we offered customers a discount or they could donate their discount to the women's fund, which a large percentage did. Hopefully, we can be a spark that ignites others to be the same and think about how they can contribute in a more meaningful way."

fitness

CYCLEBAR FARGO "I'm here to push you, but it's your job to listen to your body." Jodi Roper, the owner of Fargo's CycleBar, said this while teaching a 5:30 a.m. cycling class. This studio, which opened in January 2017, is part of a franchise that she and her partner Dave Jones brought to the Fargo area. What I liked most about what she said is I think it embodies what group fitness classes are for. Some people don't work out well by themselves, and they need

22 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

someone motivating them throughout the workout. It's still up to them to listen to what their body can or can't take and adjust from there. Sometimes, though, group classes can be a little scary and we walk in thinking everyone knows what they're doing and we're the oddball out. As the editor of Fargo Monthly, I participated in this class to give you a first-hand experience of what a morning at CycleBar looks like, including the process, class, employees and atmosphere. By Fargo Monthly Editor Kara Jeffers


I arrived at the studio and was welcomed by the staff who were friendly and excited to have me. I had never been there before, and they were great about walking me through what to do, showing me everything from the checkin process to picking out the right kind of shoes — they supply cycling shoes, giving you the complete experience without having to purchase your own.

people prepared their bikes. Jodi's energy immediately woke me up. Her music selections were fun, upbeat and fit perfectly with the different exercises we did on the bikes — which were everything from sprints to mountain climbing to arm work. We started off with a warmup ride and it became progressively more intense as the class went on, ending with a cool down and stretching.

We walked back to the locker room area so I could put my things away. Jodi grabbed a bright red water bottle with their logo and filled it — they have both room temperature and ice cold water to choose from. She handed it to me and said it was mine to keep. They give every rider a water bottle if they don't have one. They also supply towels and weights on the stationary bikes.

It was a wonderful balance of Jodi encouraging us to try more tension or pedal faster and encouragement to stay in tune with our body and what we physically can and can't do. Never once did I feel pressured to actually turn my tension up if I felt I couldn't and I knew if I needed a break, I could turn down the tension, sit and take one.

I entered the studio and found my bike, which was assigned beforehand and shows up during the check-in process. There have been times I haven't gone to classes because I knew it would be full and I didn't know if I would get a bike. This way, you don't have to guess. If you need it, they help you set up your bike to your height and what's comfortable for you. They'll also show you how to hook your shoes into the pedals. If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. The employees sincerely want to help. I love cycling, but I hadn't cycled using stationary bikes for about a year. This class reminded me how much I love and miss it. The atmosphere of the room felt a little sleepy, which is understandable for 5 in the morning. When Jodi walked in, however, I could feel the excitement in the room as

Honestly, the 50-minutes went so quickly. I remember looking down at the timer on my bike throughout the class and thinking, "15, 30 and 45 minutes already?"

CycleBar Fargo

After the class, I fargo.cyclebar.com cleaned off my bike 3163 Bluestem Dr., Suite and sat near the locker 106, West Fargo area to talk with Jodi. It was fun to see her, the staff and class attendees interacting with each other. You can tell the atmosphere is positive and inviting to everyone. They are friends who enjoy each other's company in and out of class and they make newcomers feel like a friend, too. I left the studio energized for my day — reminding me why I love morning workouts, especially in the winter, getting me out of bed to start my day when all I want to do is stay warm underneath all the blankets. I will definitely be back. Maybe this time for their themed "Wine Down Wednesday" class.

SALT2O We live in a world with constant stimulation. Everything we do can cause stress and create tension where it was never meant to be, physically and mentally. Salt2O is Fargo-Moorhead's first dedicated float spa bringing expertise and knowledge of the benefits of floatation therapy, giving you relief from the stresses

I was strangely nervous to do the float spa at Salt2O, but those nerves immediately evaporated as I stepped into the lobby. I was greeted by Jarrid Gable and Quinn Dixon, who describe themselves as "the brains" behind the operation and "the float master," respectively. (Jarrid is the son of Tim Gable, the official owner of Salt2O.) They are two of the sweetest human beings and I immediately felt like a friend. They were welcoming and easy to talk to, willing to share their stories and experiences with floating, putting my semianxious mind at rest. We entered the room that held the float cabin and they explained everything I would need to know, as well as why

24 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

of everyday life, improved creativity and uninterrupted time to relax. As the editor of Fargo Monthly, I get to try a lot of new things, and I decided to test this out. Keep in mind, everyone's experience is different, but this is my experience and what I realized during my hour of floating on salt water.

things were set up the way they were and how to properly navigate the space. The room had a bench with a towel, washcloth, ear plugs and ointment to put on cuts. There was a robe on the back of the door and a pair of slippers beside the bench in case I needed to pop out during the experience to use the restroom. They explained the procedure to take: 1. Shower to get rid of body oils 2. Open float cabin door and step inside 3. Wipe your face with the towel located in the cabin, removing any water so it doesn't run into your eyes when you lay down


4. Put in earplugs, creating a

quieter atmosphere and also helps so salt water doesn't get into your ears 5. Lay down and press the button on the side to turn lights off I stepped into the float cabin and immediately my body began to float. I reached over and clicked off the lights, creating total and complete darkness. I deal with neck and back pain, so I thought it would be best to use the provided noodle for extra neck support. I quickly realized that I was only using it because I wasn't trusting my ability to relax. After I got rid of it, it took a little while, but I eventually was able to let go of control and trust the water and salt would do their job. All I could hear was my breathing and the sound of my heart — which, to be honest, at first was kind of creepy. With constant stimulation around us, we aren't used to hearing our bodies so clearly. I focused on my breathing and every other sound — my heart, the splashes in the water — melted away. For much of the experience, it felt like that stage you get in right before you fall asleep at night. I eventually did fall asleep, but for most of my time in the cabin, it was just me and my dream-like thoughts. Falling asleep is normal, so when there were five minutes left, music started to play to signal my body to wake up and prepare to exit the cabin. When the time was up, Jarrid and Quinn spoke through the intercom saying, "Kara, it's time to get up." Exiting the cabin, I discovered the way the salt water had

affected me. After being in darkness and silence for so long, I became very aware of my surroundings. The brightness of the lights, the sound of the water running as I started the shower to wash the salt off my body, the feeling of the soap. It was actually really beautiful to be so aware of what was around me. It helps you to slow down, taking in every moment. What I noticed the most, though, was my neck, shoulder and back pain were almost completely gone. I had given my body time to completely relax as the water and salt held me up, creating almost zero tension. It makes me wonder how my body would feel if I began to do this therapy semi-regularly. After I showered, got dressed and packed up my things, I exited the room and headed out to the lobby. Jarrid and Quinn were waiting for me with a cup of tea, excited to hear about my experience. Like I mentioned before, everyone's experience is different. I enjoyed every moment of mine and I'm happy with how I was feeling after it was over. They recommend trying it at different times of the day to see what works best for you. My experience was at 8 a.m. and I think the only thing I would do differently is trying it in the evening next time or the morning of a day I don't have to immediately go to work afterward.

Salt2O salt2ospa.com 3285 Fiechtner Dr., Suite A, Fargo

Whether you're dealing with stress, anxiety or physical pain, I highly recommend trying this therapy. If you're not sure but are curious about it, stop into Salt2O. Jarrid and Quinn would be happy to answer any questions you have and share their own experiences with you.

ESCAPE HOUSE FARGO

With a sister location in Kansas City, Mike Webb and Belinda Schilling brought this Escape House experience to the Fargo area, which opened Aug. 25. Escape rooms are recognized for being a great team building exercise. To prove that, Spotlight Media, the parent company of Fargo Monthly, team members decided to participate

to help explain to you first-hand about this new business. With there being duplicates of the rooms, we were able to split up editorial versus sales with each doing the Flood the City puzzle. It may not have been the best idea to put all of the creatives into one room, but fun was still had. Read more about each team members' unique experience with Escape House Fargo.

26 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Andrew Jason, Editorial Director "Throughout the course of a year, I spend about 2,000 hours with my co-workers. I thought I knew all of them well and had a good relationship. However, doing the Escape House allowed me to interact, bond and get to know my co-workers in a much more meaningful way, which will hopefully help me be more productive and find more pleasure at work." Larissa Kunde, Business Operations Assistant "I had a blast at the Fargo escape room. The clues were placed in unique and unexpected ways making the room tough, but I loved how it challenged your way of thinking. We all utilized our strengths to find clues and collaborated to put them together. Everyone had their 'aha' moment that led our team to almost victory. The staff was fun and interactive, making it a great experience. I recommend the Escape House Fargo to anyone." Jenny Johnson, Client Relations Manager "I enjoyed doing this new experience, it is something I have been wanting to try. I am not very good at solving puzzles but it was fun to watch my co-workers crack the code."

Christopher Cates, Sales Executive "The escape room was a ton of fun. It got us thinking independently but working together to find the clues. Everyone found something and we were able to put it all together. We didn't beat the timer but we were close. I can't wait to try another room." Becca Opp, Design & Living Editor "The Escape House was challenging because it required us to be both creative and logical. This is something that my team struggled with, as we tend to lean more toward the creative side. One thing that I really enjoyed was the room itself. The owners must have put a lot of time and effort into setting it up." Joe Kerlin, Bison Illustrated Editor "It felt like an actual adventure. The sound effects enhanced the experience and I could feel my blood pressure rise as we went from puzzle to puzzle. I was legitimately upset we lost, too. That's how I know it sucked me in." Samantha Stark, Web Editor "Being locked in an escape room with coworkers pushed us to communicate, listen, collaborate and lead in ways we typically wouldn't in a work setting. We were encouraged to utilize different members' strengths and skillsets to the team's advantage. Though our team may not have been the best at this, we were still able to learn more about each other from seeing one another in a different light."


Layne Hanson, Sales Manager "I'd never visited an escape room before, so I didn't know what to expect when our team went to the Escape House. It ended up being a very fun experience. It turned out to be a great teambuilding exercise. There's no way I would have been able to solve the mystery on my own, but our team of six people was able to solve it in just over the 1-hour limit. It was fun being part of a team where everybody was doing whatever they could to solve the problem. I will definitely go back." Nick Hackl, Distribution/ Circulation Manager "By participating at the Escape House, you are able to work with different people within the organization you don’t always get to work with and as a result, you learn how different team members think and how they are able to help discover clues not easily recognized from the rest of the team." Scott Rorvig, Sales Representative "I really enjoyed the experience at the Escape House as it got the gears in my brain turning in ways that haven't been used in a long time in terms of logic and reasoning. It's a great team building exercise as well because the constructs of the office don't apply. There are no managers or bosses. Everyone is on the same level and has to use all available resources to accomplish a team goal."

BLU WATER CREEK A unique business development is taking shape in Fargo. BLU Water Creek will have Hair Success Salon and Spa, A Cutting Edge, a restaurant, event center, retail boutiques (including leela & lavender on page 20) and outdoor areas to occupy.

We sat down with Hair Success' Owner Jill Krahn and Marketing Director Randy Vadnais to discuss BLU Water Creek, which will be opening mid-January.

What is BLU Water Creek? Jill Krahn: BLU Water Creek stands for Beauty, Love and Unforgettable. It's all about wellness and lifestyle

balancing. We want people to bring out the beauty inside of themselves. Everyone has beauty but most don't even know they have it. There's beauty in so many different

forms. I never look at the exterior. I think how you feel about yourself and your mindset is everything.

while hanging out with friends and family all in one place, I think people are really in tune with that.

Randy Vadnais: From my perspective, I've always called BLU Water Creek as a whole the "women's haven" — jewelry store, boutique, salon and spa. That's how I've viewed it. They're building this community that focuses on beauty, health and wellness. I can't believe there isn't a fitness center yet. There probably will be.

How do you choose who to include in BLU Water? JK: Some were looking to move and timing was perfect to move together. Others were friends of mine looking to start a new business and I knew they were really passionate about what they do. We've asked others too, businesses we think would fit well with the culture, so we're hoping those seeds will grow.

What sparked the idea of BLU Water as a whole? JK: Because of lifestyle. Everyone is so busy. It's one thing I like about places like Walmart and Target, you can get everything in one stop. I think, "where can I go and get it all?" It's really about timing. I think time right now is worth more than money. So if they can go somewhere and shop, eat and relax on their own or

How do you think BLU Water Creek will affect the Fargo-Moorhead area? JK: Right now, the new Hair Success we're building will be the largest salon and day spa in the U.S. It's a women's haven, yes, but men, more than ever, need to relax and unwind because of

stress, too, and they also care about their grooming more than ever. I've seen business with men really pick up. I've also seen the skin business really pick up. I predict that between now and 2022 — I read a lot of reports about what's coming so I can be prepared — it's the and men's services. RV: What it's going to bring to Fargo-Moorhead is an experience you'd normally have to go to Minneapolis to get and you probably couldn't even get as good of an experience in Minneapolis, especially all in the same place. JK: Having a facility to be able to bring a few people and have an experience with your family and friends that's all about relaxing and unwinding and really focusing on yourself and your own body, and then at the end being able to celebrate and have time for friendships and relationships

VIP Membership Program Jill Krahn: We also have a VIP membership program, working with a lot of other businesses to be able to bring them their best value. It'll be $20 per month, but for the first people who sign up, we're doing $10 per month. This won't be just with Hair Success, it's with the whole BLU Water Creek. Members will get special services. Every two months we change it up, but, for example, the VIP list will be emailed first if there are openings. They can also bring friends to the grotto area, giving them a nice private experience.

— to have a place where you can do everything at the same time. Most places don't have a facility big enough to be able to get the whole family in. It's also got private suites. We want to focus on togetherness and having it private so no one else can watch you, hopefully taking away any insecurities. We also aren't only taking care of the guests, it's designed around our staff and team as well. We get to watch our service providers grow in their careers along with our guests finding their beauty. It's like a hybrid salon and spa — something totally new. There's nowhere else in Fargo like it. 29

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

new year,

t n e r e ff di ch approa BY Kylee Seifert | PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

W

Yet, as the years before, we find ourselves stumbling along the way, falling short and eventually tossing in the hat.

We set standards for ourselves and hold a vision of the person we are going to become this year.

So, what is it that holds us back from following through and manifesting the goals we set out to at the turn of the year? Maybe it isn’t the goals, maybe instead it’s how we approach them. Here are some ways to rewrite your goals in a more manageable way so that you can finally accomplish your New Year’s Resolutions once and for all.

e’ve been through this before. It’s a New Year and that means, hopefully, a new you. Each year, we get a sense of gratitude and excitement that this year will bring a clean slate for us to unfold a fresh start on to. It’s a wonderful, uplifting time of year. Filled with hopes to rebuild, regenerate and make it bigger and better than the years before.

ABOUT KYLEE

Get Clear… Often times, we set goals according to the opinions, validations and expectations of others. It’s no wonder these resolutions fall through the cracks quicker than spilled milk. Get quiet and get clear. What is it that YOU desire? What is it that YOU want? Set aside the goals others set out for you. You just might be surprised by what comes up. When a goal comes to mind, ask yourself a simple question: “Is this a goal that I truly desire? Or is this a goal that will make the people in my life happy?” When we set and aim for goals that lift our hearts up, we tend to stick to them with more ease, joy and most importantly, see them through. So, what is it that YOU really want?

Let go what doesn’t serve you… Take some time to look around you and see where you are carrying burdens or grudges. Forgiveness is a heavy weight to bare but when you’re working on renewing and rejuvenating all areas of your life, this one needs to be brought to the surface as well. Work on letting go of grudges, whether they are big or small. Remember that you can forgive someone just by shifting how you choose to react and respond. Take care of your side of the road and they will take care of theirs. More importantly, is there anything you need to forgive yourself for? Often times, we are the hardest on ourselves. Start by letting go of judgment of flaws, vulnerabilities and limits. Give yourself room to grow… Be realistic about your goals! Afterall, you’re only human. Set goals within your limits that are feasible and reward yourself when necessary. If you’re a busy mom with a family to keep on schedule, plus a job that doesn’t leave much room for extra time, instead of making your goal be "to have a hot dinner on the table every night," start by aiming for three hot meals per week. Instead of saying, “yoga every day,” opt for “meditate and practice breath work when anxiety is present.” The broader, the better. At least as you’re starting out. Make it a habit and then let that habit grow for ultimate success. Gratitude, it’s the motherload of all motherloads… Gratitude will truly skyrocket any goal from mundane to extraordinary. When you lead with a grateful heart, you’ll notice things come more easily to you. Be grateful for all that you have, as well as all that you have yet to receive. When you are grateful, you attract abundance, joy, peace and awesomeness into your life.

NEW YEAR’S CHECKLIST FOR ACCOMPLISHING YOUR GOALS ☐☐Spend time in quiet, getting

clear on what YOU desire to accomplish. ☐☐Forgive and release those

things that don’t serve you.

☐☐Set realistic goals that can

grow into bigger ones! ☐☐Give thanks for

E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. ☐☐Spend some time taking care

of yourself. Cook healthy meals, do things that make you happy, manage stress, get lots of sleep, laugh and play.

Love yourself… Taking care of yourself through movement, eating well and managing stress is by far the greatest form of self-love. When you take the time to take care of YOU, everything else just falls into place. When you’re attempting to achieve goals from a place of lack, struggle and exhaustion, nothing gets done. In order to truly achieve your goals and make waves of positive changes, you must start by putting effort into taking care of you. Once you master that, you can master anything you set your mind to.


Scoop N Dough Candy Co.

new businesses add to the momentum of downtown Fargo

Opening 2018

Downtown Fargo builds momentum in 2017 Downtown Fargo is on the rise and the momentum grows with each new business announcement, each national headline and each grand opening celebration. We’ve come a long way from our downtown of a decade ago and Kilbourne Group is grateful to work alongside so many who put their heart and soul into making downtown a vibrant, 18-hour neighborhood. It’s the people who give downtown that Fargo factor you just can’t find anywhere else.

BY Mike Allmendinger, President, Kilbourne Group

I

n 2017, we welcomed dozens of businesses to their new homes in downtown Fargo. We’d love to introduce you to the ones that landed in our projects.

Roberts Commons (RoCo), just a halfblock off Broadway, is coming alive with local businesses with unique experiences in store for you. For a decade, ecce gallery has brought fine art to Fargo through its space on Broadway. The next

ecce chapter has begun in the Loudon building at 64 4th St. N., and in the spring, ecce gallery will relocate to Roberts Alley. Joining ecce in the alley is the brand-new Scoop N Dough Candy Co., specializing in huge hard serve ice cream cones, edible cookie dough, popcorn, sundaes, shakes and more. Along 2nd Ave. N. in RoCo, Power Plate Meals will bring its healthy, ready-to-eat meals to a hungry downtown crowd. 41


Based in West Fargo, this is Power Plates’ fifth location. Also new to downtown Fargo: a 455-stall parking garage in the center of RoCo, and 72 residential apartment units on the top four floors set to open this spring. The 400 Block of Broadway continues to cement its niche as a local shopping and art destination. In 2017, Insomnia Cookies joined the block, and Drunken Noodle will soon begin renovation work on their new home at 414 Broadway, set to open in the spring. Plans include a rooftop patio to add to downtown’s skyline! Kindred People, based in Alexandria, Minn., opened its second location at 300 Broadway, featuring women's clothing, accessories, shoes, beauty and artisanmade gifts that showcase the area's talent and our Northern roots. Some of these lines include clothing items for men and little ones, jewelry, prints, greeting cards and woodwork. Further down Broadway in the lovely Loretta, Rosey’s Bistro & Bar features gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches as its

Drunken Noodle New Location Opening 2018

hallmark. It’s quickly become a vital part of Downtown Fargo’s live music scene and is a showplace of local artists. The space itself is a work of art that invites you to relax and spend some time downtown. The Crystal Corset has set up shop in the Black Building and Everest Café, a second location for Moorhead’s Everest Tikka House, serves Nepali/Indian lunch daily on the lower level. Stop in for momos and see the transformation occurring inside the 1931 art deco tower. Stateof-the-art infrastructure upgrades, along with respectful renewal of unique historic designs and materials, are restoring the Black Building to its rightful place in Fargo’s history as a destination unto itself. Across the street, Wasabi is working hard on its new home in 123 Broadway. A series of historic buildings on the east side of the 100 Block of Broadway are currently under renovation. After decades without major improvements, these mixeduse buildings are receiving necessary mechanical and structural improvements to give the buildings life for the next century.


Prairie Roots Co-op Opened 2017

There are people all around you working to strengthen the beating heart of Fargo.

Also new in 2017, The Woodrow Apartments are a historic renovation and adaptive reuse project that transformed a vacant 100-year-old school building on University into 34 character apartments and added a brand new 63-unit apartment building on the parking lot of the school. This fall, Kilbourne Group broke ground on a two-room schoolhouse on the property, which will be a third location for Children’s Montessori School. Prairie Roots Food Cooperative opened its doors last summer at the corner of NP and University, filling a need downtown for fresh locally grown food. It also offers a new community space for meetings and classes on cooking and local and organic eating. Wild Terra Cider and Brewing turned the 100-year-old wooden horse stable to the east of Prairie Roots into a work of art that will be a Fargo treasure for years to come. You can feel Downtown Fargo history while you enjoy a local cider in their taproom. Just north of Prairie Roots, Saffron Bistro opened its doors at 1201 1st Ave. N. in mid-December. Saffron has a great food truck that offered Persian cuisine in the

Downtown Fargo Food Truck Park this past summer. We are excited to welcome them to a year-round location. In January, an incredible group of local artists led by The Arts Partnership launched APT, a creative incubator at 225 4th Ave. N. They’ve transformed a drab former military office into a community art space that is alive and thriving. If you would like to be a part of making Phase II of APT an even greater success, The Arts Partnership would love to hear from you. At the northern edge of downtown, Protosthetics, a medical device engineering and manufacturing company, moved its manufacturing facility into 617 4th St. N. where they create 3D printed prosthetics and orthotics. This success is made possible by a forward-thinking city that consistently reaffirms its commitment to redeveloping underutilized areas in the heart of our city. Since the city implemented economic development programs targeted at revitalizing Downtown Fargo, the neighborhood’s property tax values have increased to more than $500 million, meaning $4.87 million more in property taxes paid by downtown businesses and residents. That’s good news for all of us. Investing in Downtown Fargo is not the path of least resistance. Whether it’s revitalizing a structure that is a piece of our shared culture, building something new on a spot that has been surface parking since its structure was bulldozed during urban renewal or putting your heart and soul into your dream of a shop, restaurant or office in Downtown Fargo, there are people all around you working to strengthen the beating heart of Fargo.

Backed up with just the right amount of citrus to stop the heat of some of Rhombus Guys’ spicier pizzas, this beer-tail from bartender John Rian comes packed with a little something extra and will make you dream of warmer weather.

BY Andrew Jason PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

44 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Q&A HOW DID YOUR BARTENDING JOURNEY BEGIN? I started bartending at Olive Garden. It was fun bartending over there but Olive Garden is a little too corporate. Drew (a Rhombus Guys manager) came over here and said, "This is the sunny side of the street” so I moved downtown. I like it here. It’s that neighborhood kind of feel in the heart of the city. Bartending is something that I always kind of wanted to do. The classic thing that I always kick back to is the Billy Joel (lyric from “Piano Man”), “John at the bar is a friend of mine.” WHAT IS YOUR COCKTAIL STYLE? Scandinavian. One of the cocktails that I created for here is a Swedish mule, using Proof’s aquavit. I like aquavit because I’m a Scandinavian so, at meals and stuff like that, I’ve done different cocktails with wine and other things. I’m always trying to experiment with new things and see what happens and see what sticks. We have such a huge back bar that we can do a lot of fun things to play around with. WHEN I THINK OF PIZZA, I GO TO PIZZA AND BEER. CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE WHY I SHOULD HAVE A COCKTAIL WITH MY PIZZA. This does have beer in the cocktail. I’m playing into that a little bit. This is for sure a beer town. However, you can craft pretty much anything with different fruit flavors. Like in the summertime, of course, you want something fruity and easy. Certain citruses and stuff like that can also cut the spiciness of pizza. People have red wine with certain pizzas. Why can’t spirits also be in that same sort of thing? I think with spirits, you can bring a lot more flavors in a cocktail then necessarily just a beer. There are a lot more layers to cocktails. WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT WHAT RHOMBUS GUYS IS BREWING UP? We have a great line-up of our beers and we do growler sales too so you can take it home. You can take the Phantom beer home and make this cocktail at home. There’s also a new pizza every month and there’s new beer coming from the brewery. Plus, we’re always messing around with new cocktails.

PHANTASTIC • 1 1/2 oz. Deep Eddy Ruby Red grapefruit vodka • 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice • 1/2 oz. honey syrup • Rhombus Guys Brewery Phantom IPA • Slice of grapefruit Pour into glass with ice and stir well. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.

Rian says that the citrus flavor of the Phantastic can cut the heat from pizza so this goes well with the Girlfriend Diavolo or Louisiana Saturday Night pizzas.


WHAT'S NEW FOR THE

3rd Annual

Frostival

B

y the end of January, most people are fed up with winter. But instead of staying indoors, let's embrace the cold and have fun in the frosty weather.

This year, with help from the Downtown Community Partnership and several other organizations, Frostival is planning an all-new Base Camp and many other activities. With so much happening, we have all the details you need to know to make the most of the weekend long festivities.

About Frostival In an effort to make the cold cool, the Conventions and Visitors Bureau and other organizations have worked to make the most of winter. For the last two years, Frostival has planned a weekend full of

outdoor activities to get us outside. On January 26-27, get ready for a weekend full of games and activities that are happening all around Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo.

While there will be many of the same beloved activities from the last two years, one of the exciting additions this year will be the addition of Frosty Cup at the Base Camp. Happening at the main hangout for the whole weekend at the old Schumacher building on Broadway in Downtown Fargo, on Saturday, for $20 for a team of two, participants will be able to participate in a variety of events, including snow pong, bag toss, flip cup, dizzy hockey stick game and an undie run (just make sure you're dressed appropriately, any indecent exposure and you'll be disqualified.) "We have been looking for something fun to embrace the cold on Saturday downtown and think the Frosty Cup is what we were looking for," said Stephonie Broughton, Sports and Events Manager for the FM Conventions and Visitors Bureau.

Deb Jenkins

21st Annual

Celebration of

Women Their Music "There came a point with the show where I began to wonder if we should continue," Deb Jenkins said. "The same weekend I was thinking about this, I ran into three different people whose daughters had won awards. One of them told me that their daughter was using Celebration of Women on her forms for admission to schools, another one said it was such a wonderful show and brought her daughter confidence. And lastly one of the parents said to me, 'I’m so glad this is in the community. It’s important to have it.' It was very serendipitous." Jenkins, the founder of Celebration of Women & Their Music, had her hope restored through those parents' comments about the impact the event she created more than 20 years ago continues to have on women in our community. She decided to continue, but with some changes.

T

wenty-one years ago, Jenkins' initial thought was that she wanted to give back to the community while simultaneously showing her daughter that you could do more than one thing as a woman, mother and someone with a full-time job. It was also around the same time Lilith Fair, a women's music festival, was touring the country. Jenkins thought to herself, "we could have our own Lilith Fair." The event, usually hosted in the Fargo Theatre, will be moving to The Stage at Island Park. "The move is due to the fact

Not a scholarship

At the main event, the young women participating get awards given by community sponsors. These awards have no restrictions on them for their use. The winners must fill out an application form and there is a committee of three that determine who receives the awards. "These sponsors could be your neighbors, local business owners or even an individual who has never seen the show but has a passion for what it stand for," Jenkins said. "They all believe in our mission and want to support us and the winners." The awards range from $250 to $1,000. "Now with that said, we do have a scholarship set up," Jenkins said. "This must also be applied for and the same committee decides. The difference is this goes directly to the college in the winner's name." Even though the application process is over for this year's event, if you or someone you know is a high school or homeschool sophomore, junior or senior and participates in anything music-related, don't hesitate to check it out.

"What has stayed the same is the commitment of the women that work with the show." - Deb Jenkins

that we can't fill the theatre," Jenkins said. "Which is okay. The new space will offer us time to regenerate. It's a good size for the number of people we've seen in the last few years." The Celebration of Women will also be switching months due to the availability of the new venue, now taking place in January instead of February. "If we can get the word out, I don't think the change in dates will affect the event too much," Jenkins said. "Honestly, our winter weather would be my only worry, but we are North Dakota tough." Another change this year, the awards process is now open to sophomores, juniors and seniors to apply.

Even with all the changes, Jenkins said the most exciting part about preparing for this year's show is reigniting the event. "What has stayed the same is the commitment of the women that work with the show," Jenkins said. "Although I started it and was on my own the first couple of years, that is not the case anymore. There is a group of women that mean business and they want to keep it the way it was when I started." Join Jenkins and everyone involved January 18-20 for a weekend of music and supporting the local women who pursue it.


Downtown Books & Brews meet once a month at Front Street Taproom.

&

books

Downtown Fargo has Did you know its own book club that anyone can be a part of? Front Street Taproom and Zandbroz Variety partnered together to encourage the Fargo-Moorhead community to pursue reading. Jump in on this Q&A with Zandbroz Manager Josie Danz to learn more about Books & Brews.

brews

Where did the idea come from?

Josie Danz: "We actually started doing Books & Brews at Zandbroz probably a year and a half ago. We had a staff book club at the time and decided it would be fun to get some of our regular customers in on it. We then had a conversation about how beer and books sound good together, and it sort of fell into place. Originally, we were getting growlers of beer from Drekker for our meetings, and then we also had coffee, which played into the "brews" concept as well. "This past spring, Aaron and Lindsey Templin, the owners from Front Street Taproom, approached us and asked if we wanted to partner with

them to do Books & Brews. They had wanted to do a book club for a while and saw we were doing one. They offered to host it on their mezzanine. It was a great decision to merge. It's broadened our attendance and was a perfect fit."

What does the attendance look like? JD: "It varies. We've had as many as 20 or so, which is actually kind of hard with a book club. At the lowest ones, we've had about half a dozen. A lot of it depends on how much there is going on downtown these days. It's great seeing all of these events happening. "We have a couple people who have been at almost every single event, but we also


January's Book The High Divide

By local author Lin Enger Thursday, January 25 at 7 p.m. Facebook: Books & Brews - January Lin Enger grew up in Minnesota and currently lives in Moorhead where he teaches English at Minnesota State University. "It's fun having a local connection while reading this next book," Josie Danz, manager of Zandbroz Variety, said. "Maybe we can get him to come to the next Books & Brews." Downtown Books & Brews meets the last Thursday of every month and usually lasts about an hour. If you have a book suggestion, bring it up at the meeting or post it on the Facebook event page. You can purchase the book at Zandbroz. Mention it's for Books & Brews and get a 20 percent discount. The night of the event, Front Street Taproom gives attendees their Happy Hour prices on beer.

have people who come and then miss a few and come back. Sometimes people don't finish the book, but that shouldn't discourage anyone from joining us at the meeting. Even if you haven't finished reading, you're welcome to the discussion, as long as you don't mind spoilers."

How do the discussions go?

JD: "Whoever is leading will start with an introduction and welcome everybody. Sometimes you start the discussion off with a question, but most people have been really good about chiming in and coming up with things they want to ask. We've never had a situation where someone is dominant in the conversation, either. Usually, everyone says something, but there's absolutely no pressure.

"The nice thing about discussing the books is the conversation diverges into other topics and all of a sudden we’d be talking about current events. Like we read Handmaid’s Tale post-election time, which was a really good one because it was so relevant to our time. We’ve found a way, with most of them, to relate it back to current events and issues in our community. Hearing other people’s take on part of the book when you would have never thought of it like that."

How do you choose the book?

JD: "Some months it’s easier than others, but one thing we try to do is rotate between fiction and nonfiction. There are people who only read fiction and then those who only read nonfiction. We want to cater to both ends but also encourage

54 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

people to read things they wouldn’t normally read. We like to tell people to read outside of their comfort zones. We are definitely open to suggestions and we encourage people to come up with ideas."

What impact do you think Books & Brews has in the Fargo-Moorhead community?

JD: "It doesn't matter if it’s five attendees or 20, I think that getting people to read at all is important. The fact that we have a book club is important because it’s essential that if we are a bookstore we should be cultivating reading and encouraging people to read things they wouldn’t normally read, introducing them to authors and genres that they may not be familiar with.

"For me, it’s amazing because we sell the same books over and over and over again. This is fine and I get it, and I read a lot of those same books, but so often I’m like, 'I wish you guys could read some of these lesser-known authors and these books you might be missing.' Instead, people often gravitate toward the best sellers and new books. "I think that’s part of the reason we have this book club. Here at Zandbroz, we like to read and we end up talking about books anyway. We want to share that with everyone we can. I know there are a lot of book clubs in Fargo-Moorhead, which is great, but there are a lot of people who don’t know how to find one or be a part of a book club. I think in our generation that’s harder to come across and to start, so this seems like a good fit, especially when you combine it with drinking beer."


'Feels like

home' Help us bid farewell to community members Mark and Julie Cook as they pursue a new season of life and make the move to Honduras

F

ive years ago, Julie Cook owned a yoga studio in Minneapolis. One of her clients wanted her to take a trip to Honduras to teach yoga, so she took a teaching assignment in Roatan and fell in love. "It's a beautiful place with really neat people," she said. "When I came back, I said to Mark, 'the only reason I came back was because of you.' I immensely enjoyed the experience and could have easily stayed." Julie left Honduras, keeping Roatan in her heart. She knew that someday she'd love to go back and bring her husband with her. Who knew it would be so soon?

BY Kara Jeffers PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen and submitted by Mark & Julie Cook

Mark and Julie Cook both have impacting roles within the Fargo-Moorhead community. For the last six years, Mark has been the head coach for the North Dakota State University's women's soccer team. Julie's role is with the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties as the vice president of member and program services. Mark had heard Julie talking about Roatan for five years, knowing he was the reason she came back to the U.S. "We obviously travel a lot and we've looked at other places to move," Mark said. "We knew someday we'd want to live abroad and when we were down in Roatan in November, I fell in love with it like she did. We both realized this place feels like home and the time is now." Both Mark and Julie recently turned in their resignations, sold almost everything they own and with five bags of luggage each and a dog, they will be taking the journey to Roatan in mid-January, creating a new life and a new home.

The SOL Foundation

Along with enjoying the outdoors and things they love to do, like yoga 56 | JANUARY 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

and kiteboarding, Mark and Julie will spend their time working with the SOL Foundation. "The SOL Foundation works on the island of Roatan with the children, so we were referred by someone we met on the island to go visit them," Julie said. "We went and spent time with them at their facility. We had been talking to locals as well about the need for a soccer program and, of course, with Mark being who he is, it was a perfect fit." "The people there are really friendly," Mark said. "We met so many people and everyone had a story to tell, stories that tug at our heartstrings. After spending the day with them, we knew we wanted to get involved." Within the SOL Foundation, they both have specific goals they are reaching toward. "They don't have female soccer," Mark said. "I would like to start something for girls' soccer and then help them obtain whatever else they could use. They don't have as many resources as we do here. They need equipment and I'd like to


Mission

SOL (School of Life) International Foundation is working to initiate and support community-based programs designed to promote education and increase the quality of life in developing areas. Through the support of grants and initiatives, we are committed to enhancing the standards of education, arts and athletics in lesser developed areas.

use my connections in the states to get them what they need, like soccer balls or cleats."

We believe that by encouraging initiatives in collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors, we can help to build healthy communities and enable people to improve their lives.

Julie will be focusing on the fundraising side of the foundation. "Right now, there are two people who run the SOL Foundation, and they're very day-to-day operations," Julie said. "They currently have a budget of $100,000, which does go pretty far in Honduras, but there are a ton of opportunities for fundraising that they don't do." One event the foundation already does is having scuba diving companies compete against each other and raise funds for the foundation. "It's a really cool event, and I'll be involved with pursuing more events like that," she said.

Bittersweet

Even though they are excited about the move, it's always difficult leaving things and people behind. "Fargo is a great community, and my experience at NDSU has been tremendous," Mark said. "It's really hard to leave behind the players that I've grown to love and the people I work with every day. My time at NDSU has been very rewarding and fulfilling. I know what's down the road will be equally as rewarding, but it'll be different and I think that's going to be the hard part." Mark has coached for 22 years, so leaving that behind will be a change, but he said he's looking forward to 83 degrees, sun every day and being on the water. "We're water people," he said. "We like to scuba dive and kiteboard. All the things I love to do that I can't do in Fargo, I'll be able to do that right outside my door now." Before working at the YMCA, Julie came

from the for-profit world. "I really think working at the YMCA was part of my journey," she said. "I greatly appreciate what I've learned about the not-for-profit world, and I'm thankful for all of the people who taught me about this sector. They are all really great people in it for the right reasons and contribute in a big way to this community and they have good hearts and a very good experience for me to work with those kinds of people. It wasn’t about climbing the ladder, it wasn’t about the money, it was about improving the community. I'll miss their intentions."

How long?

"We’re committed to 10 years there," Julie said. "We’ll be living on a beach, we don’t need to go anywhere else. We won’t own any property in the United States, we’ll be visitors when we’re back to the U.S. We’ve purchased a home, Roatan is now home for us." "I always say, 'go out and see the world,'" Mark said. "That's what got us to want to do something like this. There's a lot out there and the sad thing is people tend not to go very far. This is an adventure. We plan to see some incredible things together."

We Accomplish Our Mission By: • Establishing community centers that offer extracurricular activities that would be otherwise inaccessible. • Supporting existing foundations with similar goals. • Offering programs that support public educational systems. • Supporting and establishing sports programs. • Providing academic scholarships. Julie: "The SOL Foundation is in the Sandy Bay neighborhood, which is where we'll be living. They're serving children and giving them food, clothing and shoes, as well as education and sports. In Honduras, not every child goes to school and if they do, it may only be for half of the day or less, depending on the demand." Mark: "It's kind of like an after-school program, but it's all during the day because schooling can't be offered for every child. They have volunteers that teach and help with math, reading and other subjects. Children are getting meals, getting educated and can play sports. It's a very all-inclusive type of program. These kids are coming from a lot of poverty and this is one thing they have to look forward to every day, knowing they can get a good meal and have a place to just be."

THELASTPAGE

Axiomatic

L

ocal North Dakota State University architecture student and artist Ryan Gapp has a large number of pieces in his first ever show located in The Spirit Room. "I think the Fargo-Moorhead community is growing to value local art more as time goes on. It's important to foster this as much as possible. Art is a good way to bring the community together but also to question things. I don’t think ideas and conventions are challenged enough in this community. Architecturally, this is especially true. It is healthy to have honest feedback loops. As far as my art making an impact, I don’t know if it does. I would hope to someday be an inspiration and to not be afraid to try bold things that might fail."

Gapp appreciates The Spirit Room for taking a chance on him and wants to thank his friends and family for their love and support. The gallery hours for this exhibit are 1-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday through January 15. The Spirit Room spiritroom.net 111 Broadway N, Fargo

?

The Last Page is a new space to highlight community members of all ages who are helping to create culture in the Fargo-Moorhead area, making it such a wonderful place to live. If you know someone who is making a difference—maybe through their art, volunteering or just being a good person— email kara@spotlightmediafargo.com or reach out to us on Twitter and Facebook and let us know.
