THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK DIET

We brought in the big guns to travel around Fargo-Moorhead and try a different food truck every day for a week. Rustica's Eric Watson was able to go on a great food truck diet, trying seven different styles of food. From hot dogs to potato gnocchi we had Eric try a little bit of everything and he certainly was not complaining about it in the end. So gear up for the great food truck diet. Are you hungry yet?

Your Answer:


FOOD TRUCK FUN! (For Eric, Hillary and Jesse)

O

ne of the perks of this job is the opportunity to travel around Fargo-Moorhead and eat. It is certainly not an easy gig, but I suppose someone has to do it. However, in most cases, I have found myself not eating portions of the dishes we feature in this magazine. This became more evident to me as we went around to the various food trucks for this month's cover story. In no way was this an attempt to denigrate the revolutionary minds of the food truckers featured in this issue, because that is what these folks are, revolutionary. Unfortunately for me, most food truck food is rendered inedible thanks to a choice that I may or may not end up regretting by the end of this editorial. To make a long story short, I made the decision months ago to no longer eat red meat or poultry. While I do still eat seafood

on occasion, much of my diet can be compared to that of a White-tailed deer. I think the proper term is a "pescatarian" but I don't like to project that term, it makes me sound hip, which I am not. Anyway, I don't want to be one of those people that is all in your face about the way they eat. That is just the reasoning behind me not trying anything at the food trucks we visited. That is not to say I have this "Holier than thou" attitude towards people who eat meat. You are just probably responsible for more cow deaths than me, that's all. Just like I'm responsible for more spinach deaths than you. It may not be a complete wash, but it's close. Back to my main point, that is partially why we brought in the big guns for this issue. Not only does Rustica's Eric Watson have a better palate than me (that's why he is a

chef), but he can also eat the actual food. He is also a far better culinary mind and can give an opinion greater than "this salad tastes good". So, it was him and our photographers, Jesse and Hillary that indulged on this phenomenal food truck diet while I snacked on the fries, chips or whatever the side dish was. All jokes aside, having Eric do this heightened the cover story past wherever I could have taken it myself. His expertise and passion for food and the culinary arts made this a fun story to work on, even if I didn't try most of the food. In the process, we were able to profile some masterful food truck chefs that contribute to Fargo's oneof-a-kind dining scene.

W

e here at Fargo Monthly like to think of ourselves as "foodies". In the general sense of the word, we kind of are, considering we love Fargo food. However, we are missing an element that makes us true foodies. We lack the culinary sensibility to decipher if a cole slaw is made with fennel or cabbage. Nor can we obsess over the complexities of caramelized onions, our palates just cannot handle the workload. Luckily, our good friend Eric Watson, Executive Chef and owner of Rustica Eatery and Mosaic Foods has those qualities. He can discern the ever-changing, always evolving world of food. So, we took him out into the Fargo dining scene, but a very specific scene. For seven days, we ate at seven different food trucks of varying culinary styles. From pizza to tacos to deli sandwiches, we had Eric try it all. Without further ado, hop in Eric's food truck and travel with him on his food truck diet.

day #1

the hot dog peddler

Check out their Menu!

20 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


their story Bronson Lende had a revelation after he had lived in Seattle for a number of years. "I tried their famous Seattle dog and I thought Fargo needed something like this," he said. That was when he came back to his hometown and opened up The Hot Dog Peddler with his wife Erin. While most places focus on the East Coast style hot dog, the Lende's fell in love with the West Coast angle. A Seattle dog is one that features cream cheese as the primary condiment compared to ketchup or mustard. At The Hot Dog Peddler, they combine this with

jalapeĂąos to create their very popular Cream Cheese Dog. The innovation does not stop there though. Lende has many creative items on his menu outside of the classic hot dog. Some of the fan favorites have become the Mac Dog with macaroni and cheese, bacon and grilled onions as well as the Grilled Cheese Dog, which is a hot dog inside of a grilled cheese sandwich. Nestled in the plaza of the Alerus building on Broadway, The Hot Dog Peddler has become an extremely popular lunch spot since opening this past St. Patrick's Day.

51 Broadway North, Fargo

Eric's Take

"The three dogs they made us were all so good. I was skeptical a bit at first, but I think my favorite was the Cream Cheese Dog. I guess I didn't know that was a Seattle thing. The way the jalapeĂąo and cream cheese blend together is nice. My favorite part about it is the onions, people need to give onions a chance. They bring out the flavors in so many other things. I love the onions on the dogs."

Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

texas q bbq Put Some South In Yo' Mouth

Napkins Required

22 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


their story Opening up a barbecue food truck was never really on Jay Halvorson's radar before he moved to Fargo. Being an oil worker in Western North Dakota really opened his eyes to what the state needed. "We would go on lunch out West and there would not be any barbecue," he said. "I thought that was a little outrageous. By the time I got back here, I already had a smoker, so I figured I'd open up my own barbecue place." Some may wonder how Halvorson jumped from Western North Dakota to Fargo and ended up naming his food truck after Texas. While he has spent several years in this state he

has lived in Texas for an extended period of time. "That was where I always had the best barbecue," he said. "So, that is what I wanted to model my food after." Texas Q BBQ has its own twists though. While they feature Texas staples like brisket and pork, they also have their own concoctions. "We do hot dogs as well as barbecue style tacos which are actually the most popular item on the menu," Halvorson said. Texas Q is also able to cater events. Either way, Jay Halvorson has found the secret formula to great barbecue in Fargo.

409 Broadway N, Fargo

Eric's Take

"The beef brisket is so moist. Sometimes people like to make brisket a bit dryer, but I personally love when the juices are flowing out of it. So this is cooked perfectly in my opinion. They must put the bun on the flat-top because it has this crunch to it that surprisingly adds a lot to this sandwich. I could eat this brisket all day long, wow."

Thursday-Friday 11:30 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 11:30-2 a.m. They also cater!

day #3

taco bros

24 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


their story You know you make good food when you have 80 tickets up in the window at 2:30 a.m. This is a blessing (or curse) had by Octavio Gomez and Taco Bros. From the relentless hype surrounding their opening every year to the massive lines the truck draws in every day, Octavio knows they are doing something right. Very rarely will food leave Eric Watson speechless, but Octavio's food did the trick. "I have to credit other people for the attention that surrounds us, especially on social media," Gomez said. "I'll just say something in the truck and it'll get tweeted or whatever. It seems to add to this lore I have, I guess." While Gomez is well aware of this online persona, he shakes everything off with a spirited laugh before

launching into a story about serving Katy Perry and her entourage. However, if you want to know the full details of the "Katy Perry story" you might have to go straight to Octavio because it will not be on social media anytime soon. Never the less, Octavio Gomez makes food that he knows is amazing and popular. This was only affirmed by Eric's lack of words, Hillary's nods of approval and my knees buckling after eating his guacamole ("guac shock" as I say). There are very few culinary minds that can say their food is so good that people need to sit down after they take a bite. Octavio Gomez can say that and he has become a Fargo legend because of it.

460 Roberts Street, Fargo

warning:

guac shock

Eric's Take

"In terms of flavor, this rivals any Mexican food I have had. All of the flavors compliment one another and you can taste every single ingredient. As a chef, I also love tasting freshness and this is as fresh as it gets. Octavio is as good as it gets in terms of a chef and a personality. He is like the perfect food truck chef. We should make a documentary on him or something."

Lunch/Dinner: Monday-Saturday 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. and 6 - 10 p.m. Late Night: Friday & Saturday 1 a.m.-3 a.m.

day #4

sliderz

26 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


their story For owner Teddy Mata, his passion for cooking was cultivated by a familiar face, Eric Watson. As we walked up to the window, he smiled at Eric and said "I looked up to Chef so much and now I get to serve him my food." Unbeknownst to us, Teddy was on staff at Mezzaluna when Eric was the owner and Executive Chef. He has since sold Mezzaluna and Mata went his own way too, but the two shared moments of nostalgia while Eric was eating his burger. Mata was not the original owner of Sliderz, which opened up last year. He says he purchased the truck from a good friend of his and has not looked back. While they are currently set up outside of Duffey's Tavern on

12th Street, Mata is looking to move closer to Downtown. "For us, when we are doing the lunch rush and also the late night scene, Downtown is ideal," he said. There is a chance that Sliderz moves somewhere near Fort Noks or back by Mezzaluna, where other food trucks call home according to Mata. Whether or not Sliderz moves closer to Downtown, they are still one of the only food trucks in town that makes burgers. They are certainly the only that makes them exclusively too. It may seem odd, but this classic staple on any dinner menu has become somewhat of a niche for Teddy Mata and Sliderz.

Duffy's Tavern 16 12th St S, Fargo

Not Gluten Free Eric's Take

"I had the El Macho (Hillary wouldn't let me have a bite of the Mushroom N' Swiss) and it was really good. When you're talking about hamburger sliders, it's all in the beef. You have to pack a ton of flavor and juiciness into only a few bites which can be a challenge. This is perfect though, the beef is nice and flavorful, but you have to savor every bite too. The guac and the aioli really work well together too, I like this burger a lot."

Lunch: Tuesday - Friday 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Dinner: Tuesday - Thursday 5 - 9. p.m. Late Night: Friday - Saturday 11 p.m. - 3 a.m.

day #5

potato brothers llc.


their story Patrick and Tony Frost are Moorhead through and through. That is why they opened up their aptly named food truck Potato Brothers. "We wanted to open something that had a Moorhead spin on it but also had its own uniqueness in a way," Tony said. "Patrick got a business degree and we thought a food truck would be a really cool thing to do in Moorhead." The most common question asked of the Frost brothers is "Why potatoes?" The answer is actually fairly simple. "There are just so many things you can do with potatoes," Tony said.

"They are one of the most versatile foods on the planet. It's almost weird to us how no one has really done this in our area. It seems so simple." Thanks to that versatility, the Frost's are always trying new and exciting recipes for their customers. Recently, they have started to make a potato gnocchi with microgreens as well as a sweet potato cheesecake. However, they also have potato classics like poutine fries and a classic tater tot hot dish. It seems as though that Potato Brothers has found the perfect balance of classic comfort food and fine potato dishes too.

119 5th Street S, Unit 1244, Moorhead

Sustainable Cuisine Eric's Take

"Out of all the places we have went, this is the most creative menu I have seen. Not to say the other places haven't been that, but these guys are working with one core ingredient. It helps that potatoes are, in my opinion, the most versatile food around. That is where you get cool dishes like the gnocchi and sweet potato cheesecake. On top of that, it is all really good food. I just think it's a really fun menu."

day #6

detroit deli However, Walsh has clearly not made a mistake in setting up shop in Fargo.

their story It was Julie Walsh's passion for cooking that led her to Fargo. "I had cooked pretty much everywhere," she said. "I was out in Oregon and down in Florida and I've worked in every type of restaurant even vegan and vegetarian places." Oddly enough, her current culinary endeavor is not a place for the vegetarian, unless they really like cole slaw. 30 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Detroit Deli opened up last year after Detroit native Walsh and her boyfriend took their hand renovated food truck down to Sturgis for the annual motorcycle rally. "It was my first business and I made some business decisions down there that were mistakes, but they helped me learn too," she said. "Then I came back up here to open and I knew better and wouldn't make those past mistakes anymore."

When asked why open up a deli in Fargo, Walsh had a fairly selfexplanatory response. "I just looked for something that Fargo was lacking as far as food," she said. "I grew up with great delis in Detroit and I didn't really see that here, so the decision was easy. They sort of have that hard-working rough persona that Detroit and the Midwest have, so I thought it was a good fit." Walsh says it is the classic Reuben that has become a favorite of customers at her food truck. Other staples include the salami sandwich as well as the turkey melt. However, Walsh just wants to bring people back again and again to her big blue truck. "We just want to be a place where people can come get handsliced meat and classic sandwiches," she said.


The intersection of 4th and Main in Fargo (Regional Small Business Center Parking Lot)

Eric's Take

"This might be weird, but I'm really drawn to the cole slaw. Like, it can be done so many different ways, but this just tastes like a deli cole slaw. Don't get me wrong, the meat is perfect and you get a nice generous portion of it too. However, side dishes are what pull an entire meal together and the cole slaw (and potato salad too) are top notch in my opinion."

Monday & Wednesday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

day #7

twisted spork

32 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


their story Tony and Chad Pfau stumbled into the food truck world. After Tony retired from the military and Chad moved on from owning a convenience store they were looking for something to do. "He kind of roped me into it," Tony said, smirking at Chad. "We had owned a convenience store previously, but we still had all the equipment to cook food," Chad said. "You can't really make the money back that you spent by selling all the ovens and stuff, so we thought we would just throw them in the truck and do this."

no forks allowed no spoons allowed Just sporks

So, The Twisted Spork opened up shop last August. While they are primarily focused on catering and festivals, the Pfau brothers

love to pop-up places too. "With catering, people know what they're getting from us," Tony said. "They have a specific menu in mind and we provide it, fairly simple. Having the food truck here at Chub's is fun because we are not making the same dish over and over again. Everyone likes something different." While The Twisted Spork cooks up several different types of dishes like burgers, steak tips and chicken wings, their hallmark is pizza. "The dough is hand-rolled and everything is fresh, nothing is frozen on the pizza." Their pizzas also feature a glutenfree crust so everyone can try a slice.

Chubs Pub and Packaging Place 421 N University Dr, Fargo

Eric's Take

"I love big, doughy crusts on pizza. Sometimes it's the best part and that is what this pizza has. So many times you get these floppy, soggy crusts, but this one is perfect. It's also a really good pizza to fold in half and eat, like you would in Chicago. Supreme pizza is such a go-to for me because the peppers and onions bring out the natural flavors in the pepperoni and sausage."

Wednesday & Thursday 4 - 8 p.m.

pursey BY Taylor Markel PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

On the Harper’s Bazaar w ebsite, I found a Miuccia Prada quote, “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, es pecially today, when hum an contacts are so quick. Fa shion is instant language ." On January 21, 2017, Randi Larson, her sister, Jeni Kurtyka, and their best friend, Holly Foltz, were heading to the Minneapolis Women’s March. Randi meant to ask her sister, “Did you grab your purse?” But, instead, accidentally said, “Did you grab your pursey?” The trio felt a renewed sense of empowerment marching alongside countless other women at the March; a few weeks later, the vivacious trio couldn’t shake this idea of “pursey”. They decided to transform their slip of the tongue, one

40 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Luxury Handbags With A Message For The World

that would change their lives into Pursey – the luxury handbag brand destined to deliver a bold, unapologetic message to the world in a language teeming with words like empowerment, solidarity and confidence. Experimenting with pleather before committing to real leather, Holly said they sewed four handbags in only 24 hours, adding that it was, “Like we were channeling Betsy Ross!” Sewing wasn’t the trio’s forte, so Holly


suggested finding a manufacturer. Equipped with an Art degree from the University of North Dakota, she created the hand-drawn tech pack they sent to a New York manufacturer. “We put together a garage sale to make enough money to go to New York,” said Holly. Raising about $400, they flew to New York and met the manufacturer. “Your relationship with your manufacturer is the number one thing in business," Holly said. Their partnership was a match made in Heaven! Pursey proclaims a message as impossible to ignore as the chic handbags themselves. “Pursey is freedom,” Jeni stated. Despite each having experienced sexual assault, the trio agrees they’ve transformed from disenfranchised to empowered, adding that their handbags are physical representations of this transformation. They also say the handbags, as Holly described it, “have a life of their own,” and have evolved right along with the trio. Shining light on the negative beliefs one may believe about themselves after experiencing sexual assault is important to the trio. “We had to reclaim that power and we had to decide that those things that we believed about ourselves weren’t true, and that you don’t have to keep identifying in that way," Randi said. "There’s nothing wrong with you if that’s happened, you’re not broken. You’re not damaged. You can recover from it and, it might be a part of your life and there may be moments and triggers, but in the end you have the power to still be a completely loving, thriving, happy, joyful, empowered person.” The Pursey trio supports RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization that offers a variety of services and addresses sexual violence in a holistic way. $20 of every Pursey handbag sold goes to RAINN. They also

support Beauty for Ashes – Nepal, an organization that provides things like living wages, housing, medical services and food for women escaping exploitative situations like sex trafficking, and creates one-of-a-kind duster bags from recycled saris. The trio wants to enter the wholesale market. They strive to make Pursey a household name and have their handbags in stores in Grand Forks, Fargo, Minneapolis – even stores in cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Not to mention they plan on Pursey being in fashion empires like Saks and Nordstrom. They have decided to make their passion a reality no matter what. If the Pursey trio didn’t know how to do something, they knew there was somebody out there willing to show them how or they’d do it for them. The trio recommends choosing to see tricky experiences as learning opportunities, not obstacles. Randi says that if you’re waiting to start something until you know everything about it, “You’ll just be paralyzed, so you need to be willing to make mistakes and try things out and start before you’re ready.” The ladies have been asked about sacrifices they’ve made and how difficult this whole process has been, but Jeni eloquently describes the Pursey adventure as, “The best thing we’ve ever done in our lives, so, it’s amazing.” Freedom, banding together to choose empowerment over being disenfranchised, seeing “obstacles” as opportunities to learn and grow, encouraging women to be genuine and confident. Pursey, and the incredible women who created it are equipped with the ability to positively impact women empowerment worldwide. In honor of Randi’s comical but oh-sospecial slip of the tongue, I have one question for you. “Did you grab your Pursey?”

on i t a n ing i t s e over D A isc D h t r Wo With all the hype our team has paid to Roberts Alley in recent months, you may think something big is just getting started. But the dreaming, envisioning and planning of a pedestrian friendly corridor in Downtown Fargo started so many years ago.

ne visionary we see the impact of today is Moorhead native Monte Jones, the namesake of Monte's Downtown, a fine dining establishment on Broadway from 2002 to 2015. Known for his flair for unmatched guest service and impeccable presentation of a memorable dining experience, Monte made an impression on New York City's hospitality scene working in a number of finedining spots. He returned to the Fargo area and opened Monte's at a time when

Downtown Fargo needed it most. In 2008, Monte and his nowhusband Jerry Erbtoesser set to work on a new vision. He saw possibility in expanding the idea of Downtown Fargo off Broadway and decided to open the Silver Moon Supper Club in Roberts Alley, behind the Fargo Theatre. Our little team shared in his excitement about filling the alley with people and providing them plenty of shopping and dining options along the short stretch of urban backroad.

Silver Moon quickly turned into a discovery destination. You almost had to hear about it through friends and then have someone show you how to get there. And once you found it, you were welcomed in and treated to a great Fargo experience. Some people warned Monte about the hidden location and its distance from Broadway. But he embraced the mystery, the neighbors and the risk and took the leap. Monte designed the space to fill the kitchen with natural light from windows facing Roberts


Street, which he believed was important to the work of the kitchen staff. He put the front door in Roberts Alley, a new concept that set the stage for what we have today. Without the bold, risk taking dreams of those who came before us, Downtown Fargo would be in a much different place. We lost the hidden gem after the double whammy of forced closure in 2009 due to flood concerns and the economic downturn that took its toll. Silver Moon closed in 2010. Monte and Jerry are now heavily involved in the Delta by Marriott project. Eric and Sarah Watson, a well-established culinary couple in Fargo, took notice of the space. They saw value in what Silver Moon had created. In 2012, with a few small but meaningful changes, the space became home to Mezzaluna, which today has the feel of a New York sidewalk café Eric envisioned. The restaurant’s bar, dubbed Mezzaluna on the Alley, is a stunning centerpiece and a great place to meet friends or treat customers. A solid anchor for Roberts Alley, Mezzaluna has proven that Fargo is seeking new experiences to discover in its vibrant downtown neighborhood. The Watsons recently turned the reigns and sold Mezzaluna to their general manager, who has

shared that he is committed to the established vision and experience of the restaurant. We will continue to build on the alley experience kickstarted by Monte Jones. We’ve seen more businesses successfully open customer entrances in the alley. You'll also find The Boiler Room, Rosey's Bistro and Bar, Prairie Petals, Fowlers Heritage Company, Pinch & Pour, Mezzaluna, Dempsey's Public House and Twist. Most recently, we’ve welcomed Pink Luxe Boutique, Ecce Art Gallery and Scoop N Dough Candy Co. into their brand-new alley spaces. The City of Fargo is reinvesting into the alley as well, replacing the southern half last summer, and the northern half this summer. All of Roberts Alley’s businesses remain open through the construction and invite you to discover them! Roberts Alley is evolving. The idea grows and it was adapted by the community. Neighbors are working together to create a positive, pedestrian-scale experience through things like keeping the path clean, trash consolidation, lighting, and storefront design. We challenge you to support the risk takers. Take the time to find the alley and visit the shops and restaurants. You may find it’s right up your alley!

Q&A with Fargo native and Grammy winner

Q A Q A

What do you think your feelings will be when you come back to Fargo this month? It’s always a little nostalgic seeing family and friends. It’s just always nice to get back. Tell us a little bit about the new album Signs. What was the inspiration behind it and what do you like about it the most? What sticks out to me is how fun it was to write the songs and collaborate with all the musicians. It didn’t take long to record either and I just had a great time doing it. The process just seemed stress free. The music part is always fun, but sometimes the logistics can make recording tough, but this one just seemed different. The logistics just seemed to take care of themselves, so all I had to do is record.

onny Lang has made his way back home a multitude of times since leaving Fargo at the age of 15. However, each time he returns, he brings more experience and tales from his world of music. Though he has a Grammy under his belt and has shared the stage with legends like Eric Clapton, B.B. King and Sting, he continues to come back home time and time again. Regardless of his level of success, Lang continues to be grateful and appreciative of the city that spawned his love for music. We had a chance to talk with him about returning to Fargo, among other things, in advance of his June 28 concert at The Fargo Theatre.

8 p.m.


Q A

What kind of impact did Fargo have on you as a musician? I had never seen live music when I first started. My dad took me out to the old Playmakers Bar to see a band called Bad Medicine. That sticks out to me the most because I later took lessons from that band's guitarist. Fargo is where I grew up, there were just a lot of firsts for me here, musically and personally.

Q

Now, to my knowledge you are the first and only Fargoan to win a Grammy. How does that feel? What was winning that award like? I guess I’ve never thought about that. That’s actually really cool. You know, winning the award is an honor but I got a greater appreciation for it after I saw the process behind it. I mean, it’s other musicians voting on your music, that made winning even more special.

A

Q A

Q A

Last year, you were playing outdoors here at Bluestem, what excites you the most about having a concert at the famous Fargo Theatre? It’s a classic, old theatre and I have played there a bunch of times in the past. It’s just neat because it’s a small venue, which makes it more intimate, adds to the effect of the music. It’s my hometown with everybody gathering and enjoying some music, so that'll add to the effect of it too. You’ve gotten to tour with some of the biggest names in music: Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and even B.B. King. Which artist was the most fun to tour with? All of those were good memories, it’s kind of a blur just because it all happened in just a several year period. B.B. sticks out to me though, he was so nice to me. He could’ve just as easily treated me as a kid, because that’s what I was, but he treated me like one of the guys. He even let me play on stage with him. That was amazing.

Q A

Q A

Q A

Q A

To piggyback off of that, which artist taught you the most while you were on tour with them? I guess there weren’t any “Come here kid, let me show you something” moments. However, just watching those guys, as performers and musicians was where I learned the most. Once you're at their level, you assume everyone is so serious and there is this vibe of seriousness. But, the secret is actually having fun, that’s why those guys have been around so long, they continue to have fun. That’s very key. You know, the saying about you is how much a kid dynamo you were, releasing your first album at 15. How do you think you have evolved as a musician since then? I don’t know if I can quantify it. I just learned a lot, being married having kids were the biggest changes in that. As far as music goes, I’ve always had a mindset of being open to learning, you know. Take all the experience and make something out of it, then you can look back on it. I am amazed with the things I’ve done, I never could've dreamed or imagined all those things. Which artist/album/song will never get old in your mind. In essence, which record is never coming off your turntable? That’s a hard one. Probably James Taylor Hourglass and probably a couple of Stevie Wonder records. That James Taylor album just impacted me so much the first time I heard it in either 1998 or 1999. It just got me and it has never lost that effect on me. It still gets me. Last question, what do you miss most about Fargo now that you take up residence in Los Angeles? It was a great place to grow up, riding my bike, goofing off, you could do that. We used to ride all over town. We live outside of Los Angeles now, but I would still feel kind of weird letting my kids ride their bikes all around like I did. I suppose it is just a different time too. But I think Fargo is still like that to a degree. There are just a lot of fond memories for me.


HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

e v i t p a Ad ThermoWhat?

This summer when you set out to find a food truck and have a cheat meal that is not within the boundaries of your diet, let me give you some pointers on how not to sabotage yourself. BY C.J. English PHOTO BY Hillary Ehlen 46 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

A lesson in what not to do.

Don’t split your prize meal with anyone. Eat it all. In fact, order two.

Don’t eat half and take the rest home. If you’re going to cheat, go all in and clean your plate. No one likes a quitter.

Do order a beer with that fry bread taco. What would be the point of going Downtown if you couldn’t get a malty high-calorie craft beer?


If you’re going to fall off the wagon, I suggest falling off so hard that you hit your head and break your leg. This will do two things: 1. Hopefully, you’ll feel either so sick or so gluttonous you won’t want to eat like that again for a long time—or at least a few weeks. Whereas, if you only take a few bites, split it with someone or try to be sensible, you might get the unwise idea that you can do it again too soon. Next weekend perhaps and the next after that. Which could amount to more calories over time than if you’d just gotten that one big splurge out of your system. 2. Eating that big cheat meal can actually help you lose weight.

be rescued. When you cut too many calories for too long you sound the alarms awakening this sleeping protector. Let’s review. Cut calories = he turns down the juice. Cut more calories because you’re diet is not working = he turns down the juice even more. You give up. Go back to your life and even on a sensible diet = you gain weight. Only when he trusts you to not do something stupid again, will he will give you back your metabolism. By then you might have put more weight on than before you started your restrictive diet. Instead of continually cutting calories to lose weight and engaging in a fight you will never win, let me share a secret strategy. Go ahead and eat that fry bread taco with all the fixings. Order a beer too. A cheat meal once in awhile will let the guy who takes his job a little too seriously know there is enough food coming, he doesn’t have to turn down your engine fires.

Here’s how. It’s called adaptive thermogenesis. When you reduce calorie intake, your body responds by decreasing calorie expenditure. So all the while you’re working hard at making good choices and resisting temptations, there’s this jerk inside the control room making sure you’ll never be successful. As soon as that chump realizes you’re cutting enough calories to make weight loss progress he turns down your metabolic dial trying his best to keep you fat. And he’s very good at his Want to know job. His job has an extremely more about noble purpose. He is there to losing weight save your life. without counting Let’s say you fell off a cliff while hiking in Yosemite and lived, the dude with his fingers on the dial has a sworn duty to save your life by turning down your metabolism. Thus you conserve energy which will keep you alive long enough to hopefully

or restricting calories? Check out C.J.’s Bestselling weight loss book WTF am I supposed to eat? A dieter’s manifesto, available online through Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Wal-Mart and other book retailers.

If you are on a weight loss plateau, you could try tricking this adaptive mechanism with high-calorie days or cheat meals. Not only are they glorious; they fool your 200,000-year-old biology into thinking there’s plenty of food, so therefore, there is no need to conserve all that fat. You can’t have high-calorie binge days every day, but when they do happen, they are actually beneficial. To keep losing weight and keep the dude with all the metabolic power from being too trigger happy. On noncheat days, eat plenty of calories of whole real foods, mostly plants.


THINK GLOBAL ACT LOCAL

a cheat sheet:

perfect your hustle So you have a side hustle that you want to turn into your main source of income. It’s your passion, you talk about it to your friends all day, and sometimes it keeps you up at night. You have weighed the risks, and you are still determined to soldier on and chase that dream. You decide to follow that burning desire to move down that path that you truly believe will impact your life in meaningful ways. We are irresistibly drawn to success stories. Not just success stories, but those seemingly improbable stories that have truly inspired generations. The world is full of unimaginable accounts of triumphs and we hold them as examples of how resilience and good old-fashioned hard work can turn your dreams into a success story, your ideas into something tangible and probably the next big thing. But no matter how brilliant your ideas are or how fluffy and cushy your bank account is, chasing your dreams is a risky endeavor. So much so that it has become an age-old wonder.

There are musicians out there roaming from bar to bar with guitars and loop pedals. Artists stuck in their windowless studios, serving coffee in the morning or moonlighting as a bartender later in the evening. To the budding entrepreneurs and wouldbe novelists still toiling away in your apartments, can someone really just quit their job and follow their dreams and pull it off? The beauty of life is that no one really knows, and to survive as a creative usually depends on many factors. Nonetheless, here’s a cheat sheet of sorts, a list of beliefs and opinions worth exploring as you hustle.


Pasteur is a Teaching Artist at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo. A native of Rwanda, he is an artist, writer, community leader and a comprehensive thinker. Pasteur is constantly thinking about how we can experience the world around us.

Produce Consistently

You’re Not Crazy Reject the popular aphorism that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Creative people don’t repeat their perilous patterns out of blind compulsion but because this is how they become better. Only after a lot of iterations and making subtle transformations do we evolve. In science, repetition is the driving force behind evolution. If you’re putting in work, and have an unusual persistence and rare grit, it’s not madness, it’s perfection.

If there’s a common trait among successful creatives it is that they are not afraid of pulling an all-nighter producing. To consistently and constantly produce art or music or any other product requires a lot of time and work. Your prospective clients are not concentrated in one place, they are usually in a variety of venues and locations. In order to do this, you need to have a strong, large body of product present in multiple locations. Ultimately, the sure way to achieve this is to take the plunge and produce.

Be A Visionary A creative person usually sees things that others are not able to imagine. To be a visionary is to create the demand of goods and services that customers didn't even know they wanted or had ever imagined. Visionaries pave a path where none existed. However, people don’t just fall in love and walk that path, it’s the ability to hold on to your vision that brings people around. This is a tremendous challenge, and no one should expect to come through unscathed.

Get Your Affairs in Order To discipline and organize yourself is critical to the success of your hustle, and by far the most challenging. But to be able to make a living from your hustle, you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and get down to the real business. You have to keep track of all the moving parts of your work (i.e time, revenue and expenses). If you are well organized, you actually have more time to focus on creating.

We Need You Believe or not, your community needs you. The world needs more innovators, artists, teachers and people who have a desire to create, build and grow things. Communities grow and thrive around people like you. If you have an urge to create something that will bring a fulfilling engagement and meaning to people's lives, we need to see you putting in work. We need you to hustle like your community depends on you.

Don’t Delay The Inevitable For each success story you’ve mused about, there are countless other failure stories. Every creative genius has this compulsion for the repetitious betterment of their work. The truth is, nothing will ever emerge fully formed in a flash of inspiration as if you’re a goddess. There will be countless iterations that you will try and they will fail. Failure is inevitable, you simply need the courage to test out your ideas, fix the flaws and do it again. Failure is temporary, it only becomes permanent when you say so.

A Plan for the

Picnic Tips with Popeyes

Unplanned Picnic Ahhh picnics! Even the word “​picnic”​is infused with delight. Images of red and white checkered blankets, sunlight filtering through puffy cumulus clouds, perhaps a curious trail of ants eyeing the treats spread out to eat. As spring and summer warm their way back into Fargo-Moorhead, it’s best to always be prepared for the perfect picnic. Here’s a few spur-of-the-moment picnic prep tips so you’re ready to enjoy those blue sky days!

1. Keep a blanket in your car.

2. Invite someone you love.

3. Know Your Parks​.

A good rule of thumb in life is to be prepared for a picnic at all times. Keeping a blanket in your car is a great way to do this. We recommend a big thick quilt, knit lovingly by the women at your church. (Classic). Don’t forget it should be something that can handle some grass and dirt!

​ ll things are better when shared, and A perhaps picnics most of all. Invite a friend or a first date or your spouse of 45 years. Picnics are wonderful treats for everyone alike, and they’re a great way to enjoy the outdoors, eat local food and see Fargo’s many beautiful parks.

When planning the perfect picnic a nice, grassy, flat space with lots of sunlight is ideal. Here’s a few widespread suggestions (out of the MANY parks in Fargo-Moorhead): • Downtown Fargo, Island Park: ​Fargo’s Island Park offers great picnic material with long, open green space along 7th St S, as well as shaded tree area within the park. There’s even tables if you prefer a tabled picnic, as well as a swimming pool, tennis, and basketball courts, and a playground for picnic entertainment. • North Fargo, Mickelson Field: ​Situated alongside the Red River, this large open green space has plenty of picnic-ready places along with a bike path, to boot. • West Fargo, Rabanus Park: ​A vast green space with native prairie grassland along 42nd Street South, this park has the space needed for a picnic along with a grill, sand volleyball court, community garden, even a shelter in case those rainy cloud decide to make it a water party picnic. (Bonus: right across the street is Petro Travel Center where you can pick up some delicious picnic food. Keep reading.)

4. Eats and Treats. When there’s no time to lose and hot food is a must. Get something to-go from somewhere you trust. We’re not talking about just any to-go food, but g ​ ood ​to-go food. The kind that is fresh and will meet the standards of picnic perfection. May we suggest Popeye’s Bonafide Family Meal*? ‘Cause you just can’t go wrong with scrumptious chicken and biscuits, and truthfully, they deserve to be eaten in the good ol’ outdoors. Swing by Popeye’s at Petro Travel Stop, off of I-29 and 45th, and you’re picnic-READY. *The Bonafide Family Meal is the ultimate picnic feast, with 16 pieces of juicy chicken, three large signature sides and eight buttery biscuits. You decide if you want spicy or mild or mix it up! We suggest coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy, maybe some fries, too. Don’t forget the sweet tea to wash it all down.

5. Don’t forget dessert. ​ ring along your favorite dessert to wrap B up the meal! If you’re at Popeye’s you can always try their Oreo Cheesecake (we won’t tell you how dangerously good it is, you just have to try it). Otherwise some personal favorites include chocolate-covered strawberries, a frozen cheesecake you can thaw while you eat, or a bar of dark chocolate to split into squares.

lindsey siverson @ The Bison Turf

1211 N University Dr, Fargo thebisonturfnd.com

It seems like just yesterday we thought we said our final goodbye to The Bison Turf. The popular NDSU student bar burnt down in the summer of 2016 and left behind questions of if it would be rebuilt. While owner Pete Sabo immediately said he would bring The Turf back, progress was stunted. After multiple "openings" that never occurred, the landmark bar has finally made its return to the community, opening in May. To commemorate its grand re-opening, we had their resident mixologist Lindsey Siverson make us her specialty.

Q&A WHAT HAS IT BEEN LIKE AROUND HERE SINCE THE TURF MADE ITS LONGAWAITED RETURN?

It feels good to be back and it's so nice to see everybody. Old regulars and a lot of people have made it a point to come in and say hi. It's like old friends coming back together, you know. The Turf was kind of like a family before the fire. It does have a different feel to it, but over time I think it will get back to normal.

I'M SURE YOU HAVE REGULARS FROM THE PAST AND STUDENTS WHO HAD NEVER CAME TO THE OLD TURF. WHAT KIND OF CROWD IS THE NEW TURF BRINGING IN?

There have been lots of new faces. When you think about it, there were two rounds of kids that turned 21 when we weren't here. Kids want to come in and see what the fuss of The Turf is all about.

DISREGARDING MUG NIGHT (AND BEER AS A WHOLE) WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST POPULAR DRINK ON THE MENU SO FAR?

The Blue Bomber has definitely been a big seller. They were a huge seller before, but I have definitely noticed a rise in their sales. It has UV Blue, lemon rum, gin, Triple sec sour and then it's topped with liquid ice so it's kind of like a fruitier Long Island. They're potent and I think some of the old students that were here pre-fire maybe talked about them. So now the new kids that come in want to have those. The first week we were open we sold a ton of them.

PATIO PLEASER • 1 1/2 Shots of Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka • 1/2 Shot of Stoli Razberi • 1/2 Shot of Sour Apple Pucker • Water • Splash of Cranberry

NOW, YOU HAVE MADE US A PATIO PLEASER TODAY. HOW WOULD YOU SAY THIS DRINK DESCRIBES YOUR PERSONALITY?

A little sweet and a little sour. A little sassy too. It's a happy drink and a very refreshing one.

...SOMED


GUYS

y day, one is a software developer. Another is in retail management. The other two work in construction and music instrument repair. However, by night, Anthony de la Garza, Devin Mois, Lyle Hager and Sky make up the band Someday Heroes. While all have varying levels of music and band experience, they come together to be one the mainstays in the Fargo live music scene. Sky is referred to as the "glue" of the band. "I started performing way back when with a comedy duo actually," Sky said. "Me and another friend formed a band named 'Click track'. Then, we became Third and Main after we met our first bassist. We toyed around with a few drummers before Anthony joined. Right after Devin came was when we changed the name to Someday Heroes. That was probably about four years ago now." Each band member brings their own level of experience and flare to the group. "I just picked up a guitar because I wanted to start playing," said Mois. "I was kind of late starting because I started when I was 16, but from that it just became one of my goals to constantly get better at it."

DAY HEROES 55


CHECK THEM OUT

Dempsey's

Saturday, July 7 10 p.m.

As for de la Garza, he has played the drums since he was in fifth grade. "I actually originally wanted to play trumpet, but they were all full in the school band," he said. "Once I started playing, it was something I genuinely loved doing. In high school, I had a band called Slaughtered Leprechaun and then I moved on to some bands in Grand Forks. After I moved back to Fargo in 2015, I auditioned for these guys and got the part." This lengthy drumming resume has given de la Garza a few sponsors. He is currently backed by SledgePad Innovations and KickPort International, two national drum equipment companies. Sky says he learned a love for music at an early age. "My dad was in a band, so I grew up around music," he said. "I studied music in college and all that, but I was not interested in performing anything. But my wife got me up for an open mic night one time and I've never looked back."

However, the member with the most formal music experience is Hager, who began playing piano when he was in grade school. "My mom forced me to take piano lessons," he said. "And I hated it. Then she forced me into band where I played trumpet. In high school I got moved to tuba and that is when I started playing bass guitar. After that I studied music in college, and I played in a few bands then. I actually took a few years off because I was traveling around the country, but after I got back here I put an ad on Craigslist and these guys found me." The band was puzzled by the question of what genre they like to consider themselves. "We don't stick to one, but probably more rock," said Mois. "I always say we are 90s alternative, if we have to be something," said de la Garza. "We stick 56 | JUNE 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

true enough to the genre of the specific song, but we make it our own too," said Sky. Mois added that all of the members have their "seasonings" they like to throw into the songs they play too. Unlike most bands in the Fargo area, Someday Heroes likes to branch outside of Downtown. Though they have played and been mainstays at Downtown places like Pickled Parrot, Dempsey's, the VFW and Sidestreet, they have also played venues in St. Cloud and Enderlin. They say they just want to play everywhere rather than being confined to one area in one city. For local bands like Someday Heroes, it can occasionally feel like they are only treading water and not making any real progress. However, the band continues to stay motivated by a number of different things. "We have originals now, which has helped," said Mois. "We are just about finished recording an album and its those creative juices that keep you going." Mois added that learning new songs to perform is always something that keeps morale high. "Playing places like the VFW, where they do not get a ton of people is important for us too, I think," Sky said. "We just love playing there and bringing in the biggest crowds they have ever seen. Just knowing that people come in to see you, that means we have to be doing something right, I figure." They just recently began playing "Sweet Emotion" by Aerosmith which is both a hit with audiences and the band. However, Sky and de la Garza take a liking to

"We stick true enough to the genre of the specific song, but we make it our own too." another tune they play. "I love playing 'Shine' by Collective Soul because we change it up so much and we really make it our own," said de la Garza. "That song means so much to me because it was my dad's favorite song," Sky said. "He just passed away in September and it just has so much more meaning to it now. I don't care if it clears the dance floor, I'll always love playing it." As they look towards the future, Someday Heroes is very optimistic. "We just want to play those big venues. We want to be at Ribfest, State Fairs or even the casino circuit," Sky said. While they are well on their way to achieving those aspirations, the guys of Someday Heroes will continue to come alive in the evenings to break out of their usual 9 to 5 shells.

Jonny Lang

Trollwood's Mainstage Musical

It is hard to believe that at 36 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. What began as a bluesy sound, influenced by electric pioneers like Albert Collins, B.B. King, and Buddy Guy, evolved over those recordings into a modern R&B style closer to Stevie Wonder and contemporary gospel music. Lang’s distinctive, blues-inflected licks appeared on every album, but became one element in a sea of passionately sung and tightly arranged songs.
