The Tiny House Issue It's been years in the making, but we've finally released The Tiny House Issue of Design & Living Magazine. Within these pages, we have carefully curated content that reflects the concept of 'intentional' living. Meet the innovative individuals right here in the FM and surrounding areas who built their homes in less than 700 square feet. See inside of these efficient designs and get a glimpse into the lifestyles of these tiny homeowners.

Where Are They Now? The third-annual "Where Are They Now" issue catches up with Bison football coaching legend Rocky Hager. The Harvey, North Dakota, native talks to us about his career, what he's building in New Jersey and why he can't stay away from the game. Numerous other former athletes are featured throughout the magazine giving readers evidence of how strong Bison Pride is after the athletes' college days are over.

NDSU College of Business' Scott Beaulier When Scott Beaulier started last June as the dean of the NDSU College of Business, he was more than just a new hire. He represented a changing of the guard—a fresh, young face to oversee the school's move into a new era of business education. We check in with him this month for a one-year recap of his time at the helm.


“Summer Sun, Something’s Begun”

T

he weather is finally warm after a long and brutal winter (as long as Mother Nature isn’t feeling too mischievous), citizens are starting to be more active outside, food trucks have hit the streets and overall, everyone is shifting into summer mode when it comes to making plans. For many, myself included, working 40 or more hours a week means a lot less time to cram in our summer activities and we need options that are a little more weekend-friendly– hence the focus of this month’s cover story. I hope that no matter who you are, this month's list of weekend getaways interests you and motivates you to hit the road and explore all of the great things our tri-state area has to offer. A special thank-you goes to Alyssa Hayes and Erica Wacker from Explore Minnesota, Thad Friedeman from South Dakota Tourism and Kim Schmidt from North Dakota Tourism for assisting us in this month’s cover story with all of their help and suggestions. Here are a few activities that I’m looking forward to and have at the top of my summer checklist. ROOFTOP & PATIO HANGS Bring on the tan lines, because you will definitely find me spending Happy Hour and my Friday afternoons out on one 16 | JUNE 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

of Fargo-Moorhead’s great patios. My current favorites are the Rhombus Guys rooftop and enjoying a cold craft beer out on the picnic tables at Junkyard Brewing Company, but I’m also planning on being a regular at Front Street Taproom’s new alleyway patio as well. FOOD CARTS & TRUCKS All winter long I patiently await the return of the outdoor food vendors. Being able to enjoy delicious, authentic Mexican food from the Taco Bros. food truck (on Roberts Street behind the Empire Tavern, read more on page 46) or a Misfit Dog from Tyrel’s hot dog stand across the street from Dempsey’s are two things that I fully indulge in while I can. KAYAKING ON THE RED RIVER This is a summer goal of mine. If you go to riverkeepers.org or cityofmoorhead. com, you can get all the information you need when it comes to renting canoes or kayaks and participating in various excursions. A friend of mine also started the public “Fargo Kayaking Meetup” on meetup.com, and anyone is welcome to join their various paddling adventures. DOWNTOWN FARGO STREET FAIR You can’t blame me for picking an event with fair food. The same goes for the annual Red River Valley Fair, but what I love about the street fair every summer is that it’s right outside our downtown office.

Catch me eating an unhealthy amount of gyros and cheese curds on my lunch breaks. DETROIT LAKES A 45ish-minute drive to a beach and good food is well worth it for a relaxing day, or even for a couple of hours. I enjoy spending hot summer days on the weekends at the Detroit Lakes beach and following it up with a giant burrito and a margarita at Zorbaz, or beers on the patio at Lakeside Tavern.

FARGO MONTHLY’S BURGERS, BBQ AND BEER FESTIVAL Thursday, June 15 from 5-10 p.m. We are switching things up with our annual festival this year by adding in BBQ and hosting the event at the Moorhead Center Mall parking ramp. Purchase of a ticket will get you burger samples from local restaurants, beer samples from DS Beverages, BBQ tastings and lessons and access to the dance. I hope you can join us. See our event calendar on page 75 for more information or visit burgerfestfargo. com.

THE TACO BROS. FOOD TRUCK BY Erica Rapp | PHOTOS BY J. Alan Paul Photography

n Friday, April 7, 2017 at 12:20 a.m., a post was made on the Taco Bros. food truck Facebook page that simply read, “Ding, ding, ding, it’s that time again.” As the morning went on, the post was seen by over 7,000 people and grew to have almost 70 shares, over 50 comments, well over 300 likes and a total of nearly 17,000 impressions overall. 11 a.m. that day was when the food truck would open for their first day of their sixth (long-awaited by the public) season after being closed for the winter. When a crowd of people started to line up well in advance, Octavio Gomez and the rest of

46 | JUNE 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

his staff started to get nervous. They knew that this day would be ridiculously busy, and that the lunch hour’s “atacolypse” was upon them. In the lunch hour alone, it’s estimated that the truck went through 150 tickets and many with multiple orders. The late-night rush was just as busy, and the dinner hour was no different. At one point, Gomez said that they were 40 tickets deep with a wait of nearly 80 minutes. It was a record day on many levels, to say the least. Although he still doesn’t fully understand the madness sometimes, Gomez is clearly doing something right to make that long of a wait worth it for many of his fans. So, what is it?


Octavio Gomez, owner and operator of the Taco Bros. food truck.

Bikes, Tamales, Truck Gomez is the owner and operator of Taco Bros., a food truck in Downtown Fargo that serves up fresh, authentic Mexican street food for lunch, dinner and the latenight hours. The truck operates from midspring to mid-fall, depending on Mother Nature. And it all started when one day, Gomez was looking out the window at his brother’s office at the High Plains Reader downtown across from North Dakota State University’s Barry Hall. “I noticed they had a bus stop right there and a slew of kids came out. There were so many kids getting dropped off every 10 or 15 minutes and I thought, with all that traffic, a taco truck would be frickin’ amazing,” said Gomez. At this point in Gomez’s life, he had lost a job at Microsoft and got a job working as a community organizer and chairman of the Moorhead Human Rights Commission, but he said that the job eventually lost its funding. Gomez then began assembling bikes at Walmart during the evenings, but it wasn’t enough to pay his bills. That’s when he started making tamales and selling them to the public. “It got to the point where, there was this sales guy that would buy 12 dozen and pretty much buy all of them. He started telling me I should get myself a restaurant, and then he started suggesting the idea of a food truck,” said Gomez. “I made a joke to myself, ‘Yeah, people they totally just give food trucks away and people definitely want to finance a guy that’s assembling bikes and making tamales just because his food is so good.’” After that, his customer led him to Eric

It was in great condition, so the couple connected Gomez with the owner, who then told Gomez to come up with a business proposal and some earnest money. “I didn’t have sh*t. I was living bill to bill,” said Gomez. But luckily, he was able to work out some details and a payment plan with the owner to make the truck his. “I said to myself, either you make it or you don’t, but this is your last chance. I’d be assembling bikes and making tamales until I found something else. Do it. You just have to get out there and you do it." After he was able to put up all of the necessary money and equipment, Gomez started Taco Brothers in 2011 with his brother in the lot of the High Plains

Reader, right where he wanted to be. Everything started off great, until just over two weeks later when the brothers started to bump heads about business. The brothers had a falling out, leaving Gomez to move the truck to its current location and remain the primary owner and operator of the truck without his brother’s involvement. Although the brothers have reconciled and are now on good terms doing their own things, Gomez said that he didn’t have communication with his brother for five years following their separation from each other.

Trust In Food Gomez’s experience in the kitchen comes from more than just making tamales to make ends meet. With Gomez’s parents and many relatives being from Mexico, it

Unfathomable Hype “I don’t do the hype. It’s just the people that are putting it out there,” said Gomez. “I’ve always said, you know, we’ll show your taste buds that we love them and they’ll tell you how good the food is. We take over their taste buds, and they do our work for us.” comes as no surprise that he hardly ate American food growing up and it has influenced the dishes he makes today–not only at the food truck, but anywhere he ends up cooking. “They’re not really family recipes, per se, because some of them I tweaked myself and found what I liked with putting different flavors together," said Gomez. "But my parents are pretty good cooks, my aunts taught me how to make the salsas and the paste, my stepmother taught me how to make the beans and rice and my grandfather was a vegan, so that’s why we have a good amount of vegan recipes here.” With the food truck in its sixth summer season, the delicious food has allowed Gomez to build a strong fan base and a special relationship with his customers. With their famous “Trust You Bro” platter that is prepared entirely based on the customers’ trust, Gomez said that each summer he tries to bring something new to the table. But that type of trust with customers is special, and equally contributes to the food truck’s popularity.

I definitely got taco bros twice in 14 hours

He said that each year, on one of the first 40-something-degree days, he starts getting messages asking when they’ll be opening–even if those warm days somehow fall in February. Gomez explained it has gotten to the point where false opening rumors have accidentally been spread and that during their daily breaks, they have to be careful about opening the truck’s serving windows because it only takes seconds for people to flock to the truck thinking it’s open. “Each year, I find it almost daunting to see how many more people have become fans," he said. "I keep announcements pretty low-key because at the start of the season we’re rusty, and it’s been six or so months since we’ve put things together." While Gomez is eternally grateful for the food truck’s popularity, he admits that he sometimes can’t wrap his head around the hype. “I don’t know how I built this, honestly. I mean, it’s not Space Mountain. I’ve been to Disneyland and was like, ‘That line was long but damn, that ride beats any others I’ve been on at ValleyFair,’ or whatever.

But here, I’m like, this is still just a taco. 40 minutes to get your taco on opening day? What if we ran out of something somewhere in between all of that chaos? It can be nerve-wracking, honestly. I just want people to be happy,” said Gomez. “That’s the fun of it. It’s a taco truck, and you can just walk up to order instead of sitting down at a restaurant. That’s the novelty of it and it’s worth it for people. It’s kind of like the Disneyland of taco trucks,” said Dani Girtz, a Kappa Delta student at NDSU whom Gomez met this past winter while he was cooking for the sorority during his offseason. Girtz helps Gomez with public relations and social media, and is working to help build the Taco Bros. presence online. Whether there’s a wait or not, it’s clear that not much holds fans back from getting their Taco Bros. fix, and it keeps them coming back all summer and (im)patiently waiting all winter long until the next.

The Future of Taco Bros. Taco Bros. has wildly become a favorite with Fargo-Moorhead, so it’s only natural to wonder if Gomez plans to expand his product into another food truck location, catering or even a full restaurant in the future. However, he’s keeping his sights on what he has right in front of him and that’s it. “I’ve only thought about how to prepare for the next year. The traffic increase this

A chicken taco (right) and its vegan option (left). year alone compared to others is just not typical and I sometimes don’t have enough refrigerator space or dry storage to keep up with the clientele we get here,” said Gomez. “If I don’t get something just to keep up with the clientele that come to this taco truck, why would I start thinking about another one? So that I could screw things up? Then you’re not at Space Mountain anymore. I really don’t like it when people don’t have happiness.”

For now, Gomez is staying put with one food truck, where he’ll continue to sport Crocs on his feet (for function, not fashion of course) and spend even the hottest of summer days grilling up fresh, authentic Mexican food with his son, nieces, nephews and family friends for the people of Fargo. He’s definitely doing something right.

student union? BY Annie Wood

But is coworking really that new of a concept? The original coworking spaces, I believe, are student unions on college campuses. What’s a student union? According to ACUI.org, “The union is the community center of the college, serving students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests. By whatever form or name, a college union is an organization offering a variety of

programs, activities, services and facilities that, when taken together, represent a well-considered plan for the community life of the college.” It has meeting rooms, spaces for events, art galleries, coffee shops and more. It also has lounges where you’ll find students working on homework, potentially napping, sipping coffee or meeting for a group project. The building is the physical representation of student life and the home to many activities on a campus. If you attended a college or university, you probably spent time in your student union. It was the place to be on campus–the place where student life happened, where you met friends, developed as a leader, attended events, grabbed coffee or food, dreamt up new ideas and held student organization meetings. Student unions create connections and community through the physical space and a variety of programs, events and activities. What if we applied this model

The Prairie Den

to coworking spaces–turning them into “student unions” for communities? In Fargo, we’ve been experimenting with the idea of a “student union” for our community since opening the Prairie Den in 2015. Our Prairie Den Playbook: • Explain the “why” of the Prairie Den. • Put the community first. • Add value to the community. • Show non-members how to participate. The Why From day one, we’ve known that we can’t think of it as a lucrative real estate move. Instead, we believe the Prairie Den is a gift to our community. It is a home for organizations and creatives, a place for meetup groups and a gathering space for the community. Just like a student union on a college campus serves many functions, the Prairie Den can’t simply be a workspace from 8 to 5. We need our community to make it come alive with events and gatherings in the

oworking spaces are the “in” thing these days and are popping up in cities of all sizes. The trend for start-ups and young companies to make their homes in coworking spaces doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Many free-lancers, artists, consultants and nomadic workers also find value in being members of coworking spaces. Why? Because humans are creatures built to be part of a community. Plus, the shared resources, speedy internet, free coffee and productive workspace aren’t bad either.

evenings and on weekends. And we see that happening. Community First We’ve worked to meet people where they’re at in terms of membership pricing, with the goal of removing financial barriers so they can access and be part of the Den. We also wanted to create a space for Fargo, by Fargo–a space that would have a sense of home. We brought in 20+ local artists and crafters to design artwork, build furniture and embrace the quirks of our old building. Add Value The Prairie Den’s greatest competition is with people’s kitchen tables and couches, and the fact that they don’t have to put on pants if they work from home. We have to offer them connections, resources and opportunities that their couch can’t provide. So, we bring in business experts to do office hours, we recently built a podcast and recording studio and we continue to find ways to add value beyond free donuts or beer. How to Participate For people to believe in what the Prairie

Den can be for Fargo, we can’t have people think it’s a “members only” club. We need to invite them and show them how to be part of it. We must eradicate the imaginary barrier at the doorway to the Den by inviting the broader community in. So, we’ve opened our doors to hundreds of community events, created the “Friend of the Den” program and hosted countless meetings in our conference rooms. All with the goal of helping people be part of the community. Each coworking space around the world has a different culture and serves a different purpose in its city. But at the heart of them all, I see a desire beyond just shared workspace. I see a desire to be part of a community. People are built to be part of a tribe, a community, a group of people who will cheer them on as they take risks and create things. The Prairie Den will continue to learn from the experts–the student unions–and use their model to create a stronger community in Fargo. Want to see coworking in action? Join us any Friday in June for a free coworking day.

Step into the Wild West at Round Up Saloon and saddle up to try your next go-to summer cocktail. General manager Nick Peterschick has some tasteful tricks up his sleeve when it comes to mixing drinks, and we can bet that his refreshing mule recipe will leave you wanting more– especially under the sun out on the patio.

Nick Peterschick


Q&A How long have you been working in the bar industry? “I’ve been in the industry for 11 years, nine on the off-sale, bar and wholesale side with Republic National Distributing Company and then I’ve been with Round Up Saloon since we opened last fall.”

What do you like about being at Round Up Saloon?

“I like that the clientele is a wide range of people. We get college kids, the older generation who used to drink at the old Round Up Lounge downtown, local sports leagues, business folk who come in for Happy Hour–we get a large range of people and it’s a great neighborhood bar.”

What’s one piece of advice you always stick to as a mixologist? “I always try to bring out the flavors in every drink. I think people really appreciate being able to taste everything that’s in the drink besides the alcohol. If you can make alcohol the afterthought and let them taste what else is present, I think that’s important.”

Do you have a favorite type of spirit to work with?

“I think Jack Daniel's is probably my favorite. It’s widely been known as ‘the gentleman’s drink’ and that only guys drink it, but when it’s mixed the right way I think ladies definitely appreciate it just as much. There’s a lot you can do with it and whiskey and bourbon are becoming more approachable.”

Can you tell us about your mule recipe?

“It’s a cranberry mule made with Deep Eddy Cranberry Vodka, sweetened lime juice and Barritts Ginger Beer. We were looking to see what we could do for a summer drink menu and the Cranberry Deep Eddy wasn’t moving very fast–orange is their new popular flavor and peach has always been the go-to summer flavor for lemonades. So, we decided to mix around with the cranberry flavor in mule form.”

Why would you recommend this drink to the average customer?

“Cranberry Mule” • 1 ½ oz. Deep Eddy Cranberry Vodka • ½ oz. sweetened lime juice • Ginger Beer • Lime wedges Muddle a lime wedge with the lime juice at the bottom of a copper mug (common mule mug or something similar). Fill the glass with ice, add the vodka and top off with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge.

“It’s a great summer beverage and a good patio pounder. It’s served in a nice, cold copper mug so it will stay fresh and cold for awhile.” 55

things that will keep us healthy and of healthy weight. A common thread that runs through the lifestyles of my clients is that they are too busy to take care of themselves, even if they wanted to. They simply don’t have the time. They wake up early, get a gaggle of kids out the door, work all day, get home at 6 p.m. and there is no food in the fridge–because who had time to go shopping? And are you kidding–meal prep? Think ahead? Plan in advance? Not a chance–not to mention carving out enough time for adequate sleep or setting off a cascade of events designed to make you gain fat.

No sleep = no leptin. Leptin is the hormone that get released when you get enough quality sleep. No leptin = no appetite suppressant for 24 hours. When you don’t get adequate sleep, not only do you not get leptin and its appetite suppressing qualities, you get leptin’s evil twin: ghrelin.

But this is how we do things. We’re American. Fast. Be all you can be, then go be some more. No pain, no gain. Lean in, for God’s sake. Well, I disagree. I say, lean out. Lean back, actually.

Lack of quality sleep = ghrelin. Ghrelin is the hormone that gets released when you don’t get enough quality sleep.

Lean back, against the counter with a glass of wine and some extra time to enjoy your life. Do the hard work of rearranging your lifestyle so you don’t die of a heart attack earlier than your destined time.

Ghrelin = appetite stimulant.

I know what you're saying. "I can’t lean back." "I can’t quit my job, I have bills, responsibilities, health insurance, etc." "She’s nuts and might be able to do that but I can’t." Well, I might be tiny bit nuts, but you probably are too, so the way I see it is that you and I both have the same choice. Find time to do those things that we want to do and know it will keep us healthy, fit and well–or don’t and suffer the consequences. Ask yourself, “What do I need to do in order to be a healthier, or perhaps a smaller me?” Then whatever the answer is, actually work toward it. I’m not saying that you should quit your job, but maybe

you have to work harder for a little while to be able to scale back. All I’m saying is that the importance of finding time to have a life will increase the quality and duration of your life. Being healthy and losing weight is not all about knowing what to eat. It’s about finding the time and balance in your life to do it. Read a book about stress management instead of the latest high protein diet. Take your vacation days. Have a brain health day off and go hiking. Make a plan to get you into a place where you can work 32 hours a week instead of 46. As hard as it may be, the consequences could be grave if you don’t.

Grace 1972

When opening the door to Grace 1972, it's hard to say if you are walking into a shop that sells repurposed furniture and decor or a gluten-free bakery.

Grace 1972 features vintage and repurposed pieces, some made by local artisans and others sourced from all over the United States. 1404 33rd St. S, Unit H, Fargo facebook.com/grace1972design 58 | JUNE 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

June 1, 2017

An Open Letter to the Coen Brothers Bonjour Ethan & Joel Coen, I hope this letter finds you enjoying the smile-provoking sunshine of the pleasant summer season! 1996 was the year when your famous movie “Fargo” created a buzz around the actual North Dakotan city, which has also recently been heightened by the popular FX TV series of the same name. But a fruit salad of feelings inhabits me when thinking of the power that the movie had on shaping the world’s opinion of Fargo. Personally, I remember in the summer 2010 when I knew I was going to attend Concordia College in the area, a cousin told me “Don’t you know the movie ‘Fargo’? You should watch it!” This is why I have decided to write you a letter–to share with you the three important elements of my “North of Normal” Fargo-esque experience: gratitude, Red River Valley features and an invitation. Gratitude is the primal element I wanted to express, because when visiting with several community leaders in town, they unanimously said that your movie was the best free marketing dollars the city could receive. Interestingly enough, you once said in an interview that the decision of the title was phonetically made because it sounded better than Brainerd. Merci beaucoup, because the infamous wood chipper and the elongated “Fargo accent” is always a great conversation opener whenever us residents of the area are traveling. The Red River Valley where Fargo is located is known for having some of the most fertile soil in the world. This rich soil has allowed its residents to harvest abundantly for centuries, and this stewardship of the land has carried upon their character traits. Minnesotans have “Minnesota Nice,” well, here we have, in my opinion, the “North Dakota Amazing.” The latter is felt in the overall work ethic, the solidarity, the pride in taking care of the community and the warmth of the people balancing out the conquering winters, which are well-depicted in your movie. The best way to illustrate this “North Dakota Amazing” attribute is the transformational and revitalization phase the city has been experiencing in the last decade, putting Fargo on the national map and top lists multiple times. An Invitation to venture four hours northwest on I-94 the next time you are in your hometown of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The time of the year of your long overdue visit does not matter, as we have a year-round array of events. Winter is an essential component of Fargo’s DNA, therefore we celebrate it with a festival in January called Frostival. In March, there is the weeklong Fargo Film Festival at the emblematic Fargo Theatre. In June, there is the Drone Focus Conference of North Dakota–a powerhouse of the UAS industry. Saturdays of July through October we have the Red River Market in the heart of downtown. In July, we have TEDXFargo drawing thousands of people to interact with mind-expanding ideas of world-class speakers. In August, there is Streets Alive! where people get to exclusively ride their bikes and get active along Broadway. In November, the historical Hjemkomst Center hosts the Pangea festival, where they showcase the plurality of cultures from every continent living in the FM area. This is a symbolic glimpse of the multiple events our dynamic FM area has to offer. I hope this will spark a desire to jump on a plane and land at our Hector International Airport if you don’t want to gaze at the endless horizon while driving on I-94. Once you are here, the compelling culture and the hospitality of our community will charm you immediately. Until our humble paths cross in the lovely “North of Normal” “Silicon Prairie,” A Très Bientôt!,

Alexandre Cyusa

PS: In the spirit of the Adage, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” I wanted you to please urge the world to not judge our precious North Dakotan city by the motioned pictures of its 1996 digitally animated book.

Alexandre Cyusa came to the FM Area in the fall of 2010 to attend Concordia College. Originally from Kigali, Rwanda, Cyusa has lived in Switzerland, Ethiopia, Guinea and France. His traveling experiences have helped him in making this world a smaller and simpler place to live in. He currently works for Folkways, and is interested in community development and nurturing global citizenship. 60 | JUNE 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM
