Old House, New Times Old houses have their secrets, but everyone knows that old houses change over time. Historic homes are constantly being picked up and moved, torn down or remodeled beyond recognition. However, we've found a few hidden gems in Fargo that have not been changed by time but have changed with the times. See how their current owners are giving new life to these historic homes with five remarkable restorations.

Football Guys The Bison football team is back and so are the hopes for another national championship. Seniors Nick DeLuca, Nate Tanguay and Tre Dempsey spearhead a Bison defense that already has fans across Bison Nation whispering that this group could be the best-ever version of "Code Green" at NDSU.

You Can Scale in North Dakota: Just Ask CoSchedule A few years ago, they were a small, Bismarck, North Dakota-web company frustrated with the content-marketing process. Today, they can call themselves the No. 1 marketing calendar in the world. Through the thought leadership of cofounders Garrett Moon and Justin Walsh, CoSchedule's reach and influence only continues to grow—they have more than 8,000 customers in more than 100 countries—and they've done it all from right here in North Dakota.

I

can proudly say that I live, work and play in Downtown Fargo and I wouldn’t change anything about that. We are so lucky to have a downtown environment with great food and drinks, friendly people, caring shop owners, opportunities for change, vibrancy and accessibility. It truly pains me that I can’t list everything I love about it.

Sure, downtown might have a few minor things missing (and it depends on who you talk to), but I am a firm believer that downtown has just about everything you need to go about your daily life and there really aren’t that many reasons to leave. Here are a few of the many ways that I embrace downtown with my everyday activities and some of my favorite things.

Yet every year, I get people wondering why we don’t do an issue on the other rapidly-growing sections of the city. When a city has a strong and lively downtown core, it spreads outward to the rest of the city, not the other way around. There’s so much more to do in a smaller amount of space downtown than anywhere in town, making destinations and activities more walkable and accessible. To me, downtown is and always will be our foundation, not a series of strip malls and four-lane roads spreading outward across the edge of town.

MORNING COFFEE Young Blood Coffee Co. has quickly become my favorite place to get my morning kick. It’s one of the few places in town that can make me a Flat White like I used to get when I lived in New Zealand.

This month’s cover story could not have been possible with all of the help and efforts of Josie Danz, Laura Morris, Rick and Jack Stenerson, Cari Luchau, Mark Weiler and Adrienne Olson. I admire them and their drive to help make downtown the best it can be, and I am eternally grateful for their continued support. Be on the lookout for the future of "Do It All Downtown."

12 | SEPTEMBER 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

CARDS & GIFTS While there are many locally-owned shops and boutiques scattered downtown, Zandbroz has continuously been my go-to place for goofy cards (that you won’t find anywhere else) for every occasion, along with unique gifts, bags and wrapping paper. Recently, I’ve also been able to find really great gifts for all ages and genders at MINT + BASIL. ROOFTOPS & PATIOS I visit the Rhombus Guys rooftop patio during the warm months at least once or twice a week. You can’t beat killer pizza, cold beer, cocktails and plenty of other great food while taking in the sun. If I'm looking for a more shaded area to enjoy dinner and drinks, I also really enjoy the alleyway patio at Front Street Taproom and the courtyard patio at Twist in Roberts Alley.

HAPPY HOUR Even though my favorite places for Happy Hour jump around a lot in the summer time, my colleagues and I became regulars at Front Street Taproom this past winter. Additionally, Dempsey’s is like a second home to me, and getting $1 tacos on Wednesdays or free hotdogs on Thursdays (with a beverage) is perfect for the end of a long workday. TATTOO I have been getting my work done at No Coast Tattoo for many years, and the talented crew has grown to be like family to me. FOOD TRUCK Taco Bros. will forever and always have my heart, and after each winter I anxiously await for the return of this food truck behind the Empire Tavern. My go-to order is a Big Mike taco with a side of Mexicorn, although I also highly recommend ordering the “Trust You Bro Platter” and letting Octavio surprise you. SWEETS A Chocolate Feuilletine Tower from Nichole’s Fine Pastry is the key to my heart, enough said. Dear Downtown Fargo, we are extremely lucky to have you. Cheers,

Erica Rapp, Editor

Does Downtown Fargo truly offer everything one might need in life? It's the foundation of our city, it's where people want to be and the place where immense growth and opportunity is happening. Whether you're an empty-nester looking to downsize, a family of five, a young professional or a college student, downtown is for anyone and everyone. With the help of a dedicated group of downtown diehards and business owners, we took a look at how it's possible to live your life in Downtown Fargo without ever really needing to leave.

Stenerson Advertising “When I founded Stenerson Advertising in 2003, I knew exactly where I wanted my office: Downtown Fargo, and specifically in The Black Building. When I was growing up, everything was downtown– all the stores, the restaurants and movie theatres. You went downtown every Saturday from the time you were 10 years old. Back then, The Black Building was like the Empire State Building to me. Downtown Fargo has always been good, but from time to time it’s been great and it’s great down here right now. I wouldn't have my business anywhere else.”

he people you see on these pages are a group of passionate downtown business owners and advocates who, like us, are just as eager and excited to share our downtown community with the community at large. "Do It All Downtown" is their collaborative grassroots effort to promote the positive image and vibrancy of downtown. The slogan was born from the idea that downtown provides anything one could need in a day and also uniquely offers everything one’s heart desires, which is why we paired up with this group to get help and insight on everything downtown has to offer. So, when you’re looking for something to do, remember, you can do it all downtown.

c. lizzy’s Zandbroz Variety "Downtown Fargo defines our city and gives it personality and character. If we were to take downtown out of Fargo, we’d be left with Anytown, U.S.A. The shops, restaurants and businesses in downtown tell the stories of the people that make up our community." 18

"I love the energy of downtown! It’s the energy of the customers enjoying a stroll, a start-up company taking chances, retail and restaurant owners creating a community, the creatives making it beautiful and our city leaders encouraging the continued growth. It’s this excitement and growth that I love sharing with others, too."


Kilbourne Group

Others "Being downtown surrounds you with people who live in a vivid and meaningful way. Every musician, barista and shop owner has a fascinating story and becomes a friend quickly. You can’t help but be inspired. Whether it be eating, shopping, attending events or raising a family, doing so alongside the people who make up our downtown community has shifted my entire perspective on life."

"Seeing Broadway out the car window when I was 8 years old was my first exciting realization that the whole world didn’t look like my sleepy Meadowridge residential-only neighborhood. It was love at first site. Living downtown and working downtown for years meant almost never starting my car. I feel like I got to know every crack in the sidewalk, the shop owners, the bartenders... It’s a pretty cool way to live."

Soundlife Music/Sanctuary Events Center/ The Aquarium/Stenerson Advertising "I love downtown because it's always so full of life. No matter what time of day you are here, people are always around working, shopping or just hanging out. I love being able to go pretty much anywhere and run into someone I know."

Ecce Art Gallery "Walkability and my surroundings are key. Easy walking paths and restored historical spaces make it natural for me to spend my workdays and my late nights in our vibrant core. Downtown’s brick-and-mortar buildings hold Fargo’s architectural and visual history, and create a hotbed for youth culture and nightlife seeking authentic grit and restored beauty." 19


Transportation & Parking “Downtown Fargo has a walk score (a measure of of walkability) of 86–the same score as San Francisco, which is the second most walkable city in the country. The city of Fargo as a whole only has a walk score of 44. This means that downtown is a walker’s paradise, so don’t be afraid to park a block or two from your destination and take in all that downtown has to offer.” - Josie Danz LinkFM Operates from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. MondayFriday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays LinkFM is a fun, fast and free MATBUS route that connects the downtowns of Fargo and Moorhead. It arrives every 15 to 20 minutes at each stop, and it will keep moving to the next one if nobody is at a particular stop. It’s a great way to avoid traffic and parking tickets for those who work downtown or like to frequently visit.

Great Rides Bike Share Bike sharing makes it more economical and convenient for residents to use bikes for trips that are too far away to walk to but too short to drive. This concept fits perfectly with how bikeable Downtown Fargo has become in recent years. There are 11 bike stations spread across downtown and NDSU’s campus, and all you have to do is visit a kiosk to purchase a ride. Each ride is only $4 an hour and you can pay with a Visa or MasterCard. Memberships cost $15 per

month or $75 per year, and members also get the first hour of every ride free. Free unlimited 30-minute rides are available with student membership for NDSU students as well. Roberts Commons 625 2nd Ave. N The Roberts Commons parking ramp has plenty of space for off-street parking, and is free for the first two hours. Visit cityoffargo.com/parking to find out more about other downtown parking lot rates, street parking time and available spots. Doyle's Yellow Checker Cab 1418 Main Ave. Doyle’s has been the longest-running transportation business in the FargoMoorhead area. It was established in 1890 as a horse-and-buggy system to deliver ice and provide emergency service, and it has evolved into the leading taxi cab company in the city. There are 65 taxis available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The company even has an app to make ordering a ride easier. Amtrack Train Station 420 4th St. N MATBUS Ground Transportation Center 502 NP Ave. N

I always say that downtown is our community’s front porch. It’s where people bring their friends and family because they know that going downtown is an experience you can’t have anywhere other than Fargo. Downtown is the pride of our city. It’s the best place to go to socialize, celebrate and shop." - Josie Danz 20

SOMA (South of Main Avenue) has become my favorite little pocket of downtown. I love meeting a girlfriend for a turkey and brie sandwich at Nichole’s, devouring a few of their chocolate truffles, and then shopping at the boutiques along Eighth Street and Main Avenue. Since opening Others nearly three years ago (a boutique that donates all profit), the number of retail businesses in the area has doubled. Each store offers its own unique experience with items you won’t find anywhere else." - Laura Morris

No other place in town brings a taste bud explosion comparable to downtown. You’ll find German, Indian, Greek, Nepali, Mexican, American, European, Middle Eastern, Norwegian, Italian and more, all within walking distance. Not to mention food trucks, a grilled cheese bar, shops specifically featuring donuts, bagels, cookies, a candy shop, juice bar, fine dining and a vegan café– many of which source from local farmers and often host live music." - Laura Morris

Beer, Wine & Spirits (Made On-Site)

Drekker Brewing Company 630 1st Ave. N Beer fit for the viking in all of us. Drekker offers a number of flagship recipes and a rotating menu so you can always trying something new and in-season. Snacks are available in the taproom, and be sure to keep up with the number of weekly events. Cans are also available for off-sale purchase.

Proof Artisan Distillers 414 4th Ave. N Made with a fancy distilling system all the way from Germany, Proof's lineup of spirits does not disappoint and it's all made right in the heart of Downtown Fargo. Vodkas, liqueurs, gins, whiskeys and more are made on location and sold at various spots around town, plus you can also visit the taproom for quality cocktails and small-plate meals.

Furniture & Home "My family recently moved into a new home and quickly found the home interior experience downtown to be beyond what we had anticipated. The collections at Scan Design and Northern Home are quality and customizable with a stylistic edge. You can find all the chic touches and eclectic charm you could ever dream up at McNeal & Friends, O’Day CachÊ, and Mid Mod Madhaus. Also, the art! Traveling always makes us realize how spoiled we really are in Fargo to have such high caliber talent featured in our downtown galleries. The suggestions to drive to the cities or shop online were a headache. Staying local was the solution." - Laura Morris Northern Home Furniture 505 Broadway N

Produce & Grocery Prairie Roots Food Co-op 1213 NP Ave. N Downtown Fargo's newest grocery store is owned by members of the community just like you.

As downtown Fargo grows, construction on new spaces continues. Our city works hard to keep streets and sidewalks open and safe around construction projects. Don’t let it keep you away. Downtown Fargo is always open for business! The retail shops, restaurants and galleries will continue to create unique, new experiences that you can only have in Downtown Fargo. We can help keep them strong through construction. Take the opportunity to come downtown and see what all the fuss is about. Navigate to Roberts Garage! Parking is free for two hours and it's right in the heart of the Downtown Fargo retail district." - Adrienne Olson

Bookstores Zandbroz Variety 420 Broadway N Zandbroz has been in the heart of downtown as one of the area’s only independent bookstores and gift shops for over 25 years. They like to say they’ve been "making downtown fun since ’91." Though they’re more than a bookstore, that’s their primary focus. They shelve all the best sellers, but also have a well-curated collection that highlights regional and local authors to complete their finely stocked shelves. Their former soda fountain, where they often host author events, is now home to a used and vintage book collection that’s rich in regional history. B.D.S Books 1200 1st Ave. N This fully-stocked general used books store has tens of thousands of quality used books of all types for all ages, and many for just half the cover price. There

"The creative experiences offered for young ones are endless. From scheduled classes and day camps to unique makeand-take events, you can’t go wrong by following Make Room, Unglued and the Plains Art Museum. The reading events at the Fargo Public Library or Creative Plains Foundation also make a terrific start to a favorite family day. We usually follow up with a trip to Blackbird Woodfire, where kids enjoy pepperoni samples while watching their pizza be made from scratch. Then, it’s off to Yeobo Sweet Shop, where everyone can create their own perfect bag of treats to take home." - Laura Morris Fargo Theatre 314 Broadway N Whether it's a new release or a showing from the theatre's Classic Film Series,

Zandbroz is a family business. My dad Greg and my uncle Jeff started the business with their wives (my mom Renee and my aunt Kelly) with the idea to sell a little bit of everything they loved. One of the first things they were sure of was that they wanted to be downtown. They believed in the potential and importance of downtowns–even when at the time in both Sioux Falls and Fargo, no one else seemed to. They also believed in the importance of revitalizing and giving new life to old buildings. With those values in mind, they purchased an old building in Sioux Falls that used to be home to Kinney’s Shoe Store. After two years, and relative success, they thought, what better place to open a second store than Downtown Fargo? If

you are familiar with what the state of downtown Fargo was in the early '90s, you’re probably thinking that there are many places that would have made a lot more sense to open a business–like, pretty much anywhere.

1. I no longer envy other downtowns. There’s no place I’d rather work, live or play.

and passion. A business can’t thrive on just passion, and it certainly won’t succeed with only hard work.

2. In fact, Downtown Fargo has become a model downtown that other cities hope to replicate.

4. With the help of a handful of influencers who believed in downtown, it has done a complete 180 from when I was a little girl.

3. Change doesn’t happen without work

Zandbroz in Fargo is housed in the former Leeby’s Grocery Store. Most people told us we’d never last and that we were crazy to invest in a "dying part of town." Here we are, though, nearly 26 years later, stronger than ever. Both the Sioux Falls Zandbroz and the Fargo Zandbroz have endured some ugly, challenging times, and we’ve learned a lot along the way. So, without further ado, here are the top 25 things I’ve learned about being a part of downtown for over 25 years.

39


5. Persistence pays. I learned from my dad at a young age that sometimes you have to play the “bad guy” and go against popular opinion. You can’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in, which sometimes means you’re going to be the only voice in the room representing a change that you believe needs to happen. If you are strong in your convictions, eventually someone is bound to listen. 6. I learned from my mom that the easiest way to give people a reason to come back is by creating an experience they won’t have anywhere else. Make it more than a trip to the store by creating an environment that alone is worth the trip. Downtown does this with its neighborhood feel and unique character and charm. 7. Downtown is safe. Even in downtown’s roughest days and even as a single, young woman, I have never felt unsafe. There are all walks of life downtown, but that doesn’t make it dangerous. Most unsavory incidents that happen occur late at night amongst people that know each other who have been drinking. I encourage you to get out and explore downtown and get a true feel for how enjoyable it is to walk around and take in all that’s around you. 8. The walkability of downtown is something that we often take for granted. 9. Lack of parking is something we would have been happy about 10 to 15 years ago. If we take advantage of walkability, parking no longer becomes a problem. Chances are, if you walk a block or two, you’ll discover something you never knew was there. Walking downtown is not like walking somewhere like 13th Avenue–it’s very pedestrian friendly. 10. Downtown is much more than just Broadway. It’s exciting to see downtown


Downtown offers a unique experience that can’t be experienced anywhere else–it’s creative, personal and customized to our city." continue to develop on Roberts, First Avenue, NP Avenue, Main and Eighth Street. This will continue as more projects are finalized and what were once desolate streets continue to become vibrant and lively. 11. There are a lot of memories associated with downtown, and with those memories comes a lot of history. Every week we get people in that share their fond memories of Leeby’s with us. We recently learned that even before Zandbroz was Leeby’s, our building was divided in half, and on one side was another grocery store called Rose Grocery. It’s not just our building that’s rich with history–many of downtown’s buildings have a story to tell. 12. Downtown is its own community that thrives off the support of others in the downtown community. We work together and support each other, rather than compete–and when we do, it’s not only a lot more fun, but we’re also more successful and stronger because of it. 13. Broadway is unique and deserves to be treated as such. Broadway is our community’s front porch and plays host to events such as the annual Street Fair, parades and ESPN GameDay. Broadway is a treasure to our city and deserves extra TLC. 14. Downtown defines Fargo. If Fargo didn’t have a vibrant downtown full of unique, small businesses, there’d be nothing that separated us from many other cities. Downtown tells the stories of the people that compose our community. Downtown offers a unique experience that can’t be experienced anywhere else–it’s creative, personal and customized to our city. 15. Downtown Fargo is one-size-fits-

all. Everyone belongs and there is something for everyone. It’s for men and women, blue collar and white. It’s for the hip, but also for the average Joe. There’s fun for the young, and the young at heart. There’s every type of food, and music that ranges everywhere from pop to polka. 16. People are loyal to and proud of their downtown. It’s the part of our city we’re most likely to show off. Downtown is filled with the restaurants and the businesses that we want to support the most because our friends and neighbors run them and we know that when we visit them we’re supporting our local community. 17. Every day should be Small Business Saturday. Why not support what’s local every day of the year? 18. I can’t not be part of downtown, and I’ve tried. Downtown has a charm that can’t be replicated. When I’ve been away from Fargo, I get homesick for my downtown community. It’s nostalgic, yet still contemporary and constantly evolving. Downtown has always been my second home, and now it’s my primary home, too.

23. Even after being downtown for over 25 years, I am constantly discovering new things. Whether it’s a new business or a beautiful architectural detail, I’m amazed that there’s always something more to explore and learn about. 24. It turns out my dad, Greg, has learned a few things, too. When I asked him, he kept it pretty simple, but I couldn’t agree more: Sense of humor is key, bigger isn’t always better, build it and they will come, and there’s always work to be done. 25. Settling isn’t an option. We must constantly evolve. Change can be a good thing. There is still a lot to look forward to in downtown. It’s important to continue to stay relevant and never settle to just maintain. Like anything, there is always room to improve and ask, “What’s next?”

21. Downtown is the "Pride of the Prairie" (or as Tim Flakoll says, “the Pearl of the Prairie”). Downtown is your oyster and a true treasure.

After over 25 years in Downtown Fargo, from the desolate early days to the thriving and exciting environment we find ourselves lucky to be part of today, if there is one thing that I know Zandbroz did right and would never change, it’s locating in the heart of downtown. There are still things that I’d like to see in downtown, and still aspects that aren’t perfect. However, by far the most important thing I’ve learned over the years is to believe in the place you call home. Downtown is my home, and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of what it’s become both as a retailer and a resident.

22. There are many, what I would call, “downtown faces," who, whenever I see them, are guaranteed to put a smile on my face.

19. Zandbroz has gone from marketing ourselves as a destination shop to simply being part of the destination. 20. Everything you need can be found in downtown or within walking distance of downtown.

Each day I report to work in the lovely Loretta Building at 210 Broadway. I work inside a work of art. I can touch the mortar that was spread by hand between the bricks in 1909. The meticulous and thoughtful renovation of the building in 2012 uncovered her “good bones” and brought her internal systems into modern day standards. I’m greeted inside the front door by three stunning pieces of artwork by Robert Crowe, of the Bergstrom & Crowe Furniture Co. family, which operated their business in the Loretta for 60 years. Every day, I step into Fargo’s yesteryears.

Reviving History for a Better Today Fargo’s brick-and-mortar buildings of the early 1900s have reached the point in their lifecycles where intervention is eminent if we want to keep these structures around for another 100 years. Take a walk through downtown and you’ll see the ones that have been taken under someone’s wing and either restored to former glory or respectably maintained through the years. Others are struggling to serve and shelter those who enter, sometimes in ways not visible to the passerby. Take the Black Building, built in 1930

as a tower of commerce in a growing and thriving Fargo. In recent decades, those keeping shop inside did not have the promise of reliable elevator service, hot water, heat or cooling–a number of elements renters should be able to take for granted. Kilbourne Group is embarking on a $7.7 million renovation of the Black Building, about $6 million of which will be spent on new windows and electrical, heating, air conditioning and ventilation system upgrades. At the corner of Broadway and Second Avenue North is the Dakotah Block, former home of Metro Drug. The building has been vacant since 2015. Since acquiring the building early this year, Kilbourne Group has made structural repairs to the more than 120-year-old foundation, added new water service, a storm sewer, sanitary sewer and electrical service. We’ve installed the building’s first fire alarm and sprinkler systems, and have invested $40,000 to remove all asbestos. These projects are two of more than 230 Renaissance Zone projects in the City of Fargo, a program which has been central to the ability to invest in historic buildings in downtown.

You Contribute to Downtown's Success Another thing central to the success of downtown is you. When you eat, play or shop downtown, you are supporting your friends and neighbors in their livelihoods, and you are contributing the economic activity necessary to retain our historic buildings. Studies find that local businesses recirculate a greater share of every dollar in the local economy, as they create locally owned supply chains and invest in their employees. Step inside the Plains Art Museum, the Ford Building (home to Northern Home Furniture), the Pence Warehouse (home to Family Health Care), the Hotel Donaldson, or any number of renovated historic buildings in Downtown Fargo and experience first-hand how buildings learn and adapt over time. You’ve likely heard, “we just don’t build ‘em like that anymore.” The truth behind this phrase makes the work and investment into taking care of historic buildings all the more vital to our sense of shared history and culture. Respecting The Past Our values at Kilbourne Group are rooted in a respect for the past. We learn and share the fascinating history of the Downtown Fargo sites we work to redevelop. We thrilled like urban archeologists when we uncovered the brick foundation walls of the grand Carnegie Library we lost to parking needs in 1976. We repurposed the chalkboards of the Woodrow Wilson

Those who organize the world into places for others have a profound responsibility." - Juhani Pallasmaa, Finnish architect, author of "Eyes of the Skin"

School. We dusted off the ornate metalwork found in storage in the Black Building and find ways to reincorporate it into the building. Kilbourne Group directs our time and talents to revitalizing Downtown Fargo through redevelopment of historic structures and creating mixed-use infill projects on surface parking lots left behind by demolition or fire. Our mission to be a catalyst of inspiration and action for vibrant downtown communities is born of an appreciation for and desire to recreate the early development pattern that resulted in our vibrant Downtown Fargo. This pattern allowed people to live, work, shop, play and learn all in the same neighborhood and created walkable, close-knit communities that have a new and growing appeal.

This wave of demand for walkable, mixed-use environments is being met with a new wave of construction downtown. We’ve seen a number of new commercial, retail and living spaces built, with more to come. Rediscover your downtown. Whether you’ve spent your life here, visit for special events, or haven’t been downtown in years, there’s always a new experience to have, a new place to enjoy and a new friend to meet. See you downtown! For more information Kilbourne Group is a commercialdevelopment firm that focuses on historic renovation and mixed-use infill in Downtown Fargo. kilbournegroup.com 43

We’re not

“yolking” around here!

Chefs are obsessed with eggs. Most food obsessions start at a young age. For me, it was when I was 9 or 10 and began cooking my own breakfast. I loved my sunny-side-up eggs with buttered toast. What kid doesn’t love dipping bread into bright, runny egg yolks? For my kids, it’s over easy (runny yolks, as they call it) or soft-cooked, delicate scrambled eggs. Sometimes my kids are stubborn eaters, but once in awhile their food preferences bring a little tear to my eye and make me proud. I love when my kids brag about my egg cooking abilities. I can’t stay awake through a movie, but I can cook the hell out of an egg. I don’t mean to offend, but in most households, cooking eggs is kind of like cooking pork. The longer and drier, the better. For some reason, everyone is terrified of cooking eggs to the proper temperature. Eggs, like most food items, tend to taste better when they possess a bit of moisture. (Can you sense my sarcasm?) Actually, when traveling abroad you may notice that eggs are often stored at room temperature. This is because roomtemperature eggs always produce a far superior finished product, especially with pastries and sauces. But, don’t worry my friendly local health inspector, I keep my eggs safely secured in the refrigerator at all times. Since we store our eggs under 50 | SEPTEMBER 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


refrigeration, it is important to place the eggs in warm water for about 20 minutes in order to gently raise the internal temperature before executing certain recipes. This allows the egg, especially the yolk, to incorporate or emulsify with other ingredients with more ease. Every chef I’ve worked for has had varying ideas regarding egg cooking techniques but they all seem to agree on one thing for sure: Put a properly cooked egg on top of just about anything and it takes it to a whole new level. Every culture has its own egg dishes that best represent themselves. In England, for example, Scotch eggs are about as popular as chicken wings and burgers are in America. Many restaurants in our

region have started to catch on to the idea in the past few years. As if the egg didn’t possess enough cholesterol to begin with, we take a soft-cooked egg, wrap it in sausage and deep fry it. It's not exactly health food, but, when made properly, it’s an amazing culinary experience. Traditionally, it’s made with pork sausage, but at Mezzaluna we use a beef chorizo to wrap the egg. We then bread it with crispy bread crumbs before deep frying and it's served with a grain mustard aioli and pickled red onions. Scotch eggs aren’t terribly labor intensive to make, but it’s much easier to swing by your favorite restaurant and have us make them for you. See you soon.

Soft-Cooked Beef Chorizo Scotch Eggs Ingredients • 6 ea. fresh eggs, bring to room temperature • 12 oz. ground beef • 4 oz. ground pork • 4 ea. egg yolks, raw • 2 Tbsp. smoked paprika • 2 tsp. chili powder • 1/2 Tbsp. raw garlic, minced • 2 tsp. red chile/pepper flakes • 2 tsp. ground cumin • 1/4 cup cold water • 1 Tbsp. sherry vinegar • 1 Tbsp. dried oregano leaves • As needed: all-purpose flour, egg wash, bread crumbs Preparation • Bring some water to a boil and gently place the six fresh eggs in the pan. Leave the water at at least a simmer for five to seven minutes (depending on your desired yolk consistency). Remove the eggs from the water and immediately place in an ice bath. When eggs are completely cooled, gently peel and rinse them.

• In a bowl, combine beer, pork, yolks, paprika, chili powder, garlic, pepper flakes, cumin, water, vinegar and oregano. Using your hands, combine the mixture until well incorporated. Season the sausage with salt. Portion the sausage into approximately twoand-a-half-ounce balls and flatten them into a thin circular shape. • Quickly roll the eggs in flour and place them on a piece of sausage. Gently wrap the sausage around the egg until no white is showing through the sausage. Once again, roll the egg in flour to coat the sausage. Dip the egg in an egg wash and then roll into the bread crumbs, making sure the exterior of the egg is completely coated. Deep fry or pan fry the eggs quickly at 365 degrees. Once the exterior of the egg is golden brown, remove it from the oil and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Season with salt and pepper and serve with pickled onions, grain mustard and/or aioli.

Q&A How long have you been in the bar and restaurant industry?

I’ve been bartending for about seven years, but I’ve been working in restaurants since I was a little kid. I grew up in a really small town so my mom had me washing dishes when I was young.”

What do you like about bartending at Lucky’s?

“We have a very big regular base. Lots of people have been consistently coming in here since we opened. Lucky’s is really fun to work at because it’s lax with a cool atmosphere. It’s kind of like hanging out with your friends when you come to work.”

Can you tell us about your cocktail creation?

“I’ve been really into Prosecco lately so I wanted to incorporate that, then there’s a four count of Stoli Raz, two counts of Chambord and there’s a splash of this fancy Elderflower syrup before I top it with raspberries. It’s pretty sweet with a good amount of raspberry flavor going on, but the Elderflower syrup adds a little more of an interesting aspect to it. You don’t need much of the syrup because it can be pretty overpowering. It’s a great summer drink and fun to sip on out on the patio."

Is there a particular spirit or style of cocktail-making that you like working with most?

“I like working with Vodka mostly, because it’s the easiest spirit to build a cocktail with. Personally, I love tequila, but that’s not a flavor profile that is usually friendly with most customers I’d say. I like classic cocktails as well. Stick to what you know always works. It’s kind of hard to be fancy here sometimes when it comes to making cocktails because we can get extremely busy, so we have to pick and choose.”

“Raspberry Romance” • 4 oz. Ruffino Prosecco • 2 oz. Stoli Razberi Vodka • 1 ½ oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur • Splash of Finest Call Elderflower Syrup • Raspberries Simply pour all liquids into a stemless wine glass, add a few raspberries and then top the rest of the glass of with ice.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

It's time to

trust fargo By Greg Tehven Photos by J. Alan Paul Photography

O

n Thursday, July 27, we hosted our 8th TEDxFargo event. On Wednesday, July 26, I had the most anxiety-filled day of my career. With nearly 2,000 folks heading to the event to hear the group of 24 speakers I had invited to speak the next day, I was filled with fear that the crowd would reject our speakers, question my motives and look for the worst in me. For this year’s theme, our crew of talented folks chose to focus on the word “for."

We wanted to counter the current public discourse of antagonism, challenging our audience to think about what folks were supportive of and pushing the conversation away from what people are against. As we went through our curation process of identifying community challenges, national discussions and world concerns, we identified 24 voices to share their ideas on our stage. As we recruited our speakers and lined up what I believe is the most talented group of presenters to date, I realized that we found voices from a variety of backgrounds, ages, perspectives and beliefs. We worked hard to find lesserknown individuals to share from places

and experiences that might be new to a majority of our audience. During rehearsal the day before the event, I was discussing one of our President’s tweets where he claimed that he would limit the ability for folks from the transgender community to be active in the armed services. Knowing one of our speakers would address the needs of folks in the transgender community, I began to fear that the crowd would reject our speakers. I started to question the people of Fargo. As I went through the topics and ideas in my head that would be shared the next day, I was filled with concern. The negative

voice in my head started to question our community. I started to believe I was the only one in our community capable of exploring diverse topics. My selfrighteousness set in. And all of my fears, the deep seeded ones I told myself would definitely happen, didn’t.

The 1,996 in the room at TEDxFargo did not reject our speakers, they embraced them. They demonstrated an incredible depth of love and encouragement. It was inspiring to see the crowd hug the speakers after their talks, engage them in further conversations and lift up the speakers. Three of our standing ovations during the day were for the students– courageous woman who shared powerful ideas that were met with massive ovations.

The crowd at TEDx this year showed me that our community is open, willing to explore ideas, consider thoughts and discuss challenging topics. I’m fully aware that many folks in the crowd likely did not agree with some of the ideas or perspectives, yet the folks in the room showed and gave their time and attention to our speakers. The people that attended TEDxFargo became my teacher on July 27. They gave me an example of a warm and openminded crowd. In a week that held an anxiety-filled day, I also had a day filled with warmth and love–likely one of the most powerful days of my life. I’m for Fargo, the people and the ideas. Are you?

Created by Chelsea Thorson, Make Room is a collaborative space that explores artistic mediums in classes for people of all experience levels.

Set to open this fall, her new location will include studio classes for all ages, a gallery space and store with gifts and kits to spark inspiration. Previously running Make Room part-time for two years, Thorson is now going all in with her entrepreneurial endeavor and moving on up to a larger storefront in Downtown Fargo. Created by Thorson, Make Room is a collaborative space that explores artistic mediums in classes for people of all experience levels. In addition to studio and private sessions with kids and adults, the space serves as a gallery for local artists. Understand The World Through Art While her new space at 17 8th Street South is opened up and rejuvenated, the spirited artist prepares in her original location for the closing session of a summer art camp for kids. With historic

checkerboard tile, Thorson's basementlevel shop on Main Avenue saw the birth of a back-to-the-basics style of art. "I want people to realize that you don't go and buy something to make something," said Thorson. "You make something out of nothing, something from the Earth or something you already have that's trash. It's the lesson that you don't have to buy anything to make art." In keeping with the elemental themes encompassing a summer full of workshops, "Earth+Fire" is one example of how Thorson teaches kids about art through the world around them. From harvesting clay at the Red River to processing it into workable material and finally firing their work using an ancient pit-fire method, her students experience each step in the process of transforming raw materials into creative keepsakes. 57


With the help of a crowd-sourced loan, Make Room will now be able to offer even more opportunities to get creative. Relocating to Eighth Street, the new location will also have a storefront offering unique art projects and supplies.

"That's the core of what we do here," said Thorson. "I think the reason it's so important for kids is because it helps them understand where different materials come from, what they're like, how to combine them and how to change them. That is the world, they're understanding the world as we know it, and learning through direct, hands-on activities. I feel we're teaching kids about the world by teaching them about art." Throughout her six summer camps for kids this year, each session explored art's connection to the Earth, and the forces of nature that can be harnessed to create works of art. As an experienced art teacher, Thorson also teaches studio classes and private lessons for kids with the ability to offer lesson-plans created specifically for the young artists' needs. Art From the Start Born and raised in the arts, Thorson's mother and grandmother were both art teachers and it encouraged the budding artist to explore and experiment. Facilitating her desire to create, nature was the first medium the young artist molded to her will, spending time building forts, tearing them down and making a mess.

With her mother as her art teacher in school, Thorson was exposed to art from an early age, even with her own studio in the home, replacing the time most kids would be watching TV. But her destiny as a teacher wasn't clear from the start. After receiving a master's degree in architecture from North Dakota State, the art enthusiast went on to teach as an adjunct professor at NDSU and Concordia before taking on her very own business. "I've always been exposed to that structure and lifestyle," said Thorson. "I thought I'd never do it, but I started teaching every once in a while and realized that was the only thing that kept it interesting for me. Every single day is different." In the process of her scale-up, Thorson has learned the ropes of every aspect of owning a business, but at its core, Make Room serves as an invitation to awaken one's inner artist. "I believe that everyone has creativity, not just if you are an art major or sculpture major. Everyone can come and

everyone has creativity. So, that's what I've enjoyed about having the freedom of my own space versus working for a university," she said. Now with the help of a crowd-sourced loan, Make Room will be able to offer even more opportunities to get creative. Relocating to the developing downtown scene of Eighth Street, the new location will also have a storefront offering unique art projects and supplies. All About the Process Now with the financial freedom to create her own space, Thorson is taking what she's learned in the past two years about people and their process of creation to offer a setting that circumvents self-doubt and get them in touch with the artistic spirit of their ancestors. "Really, it becomes less about how to do each project and more about creating a safe space for people to tap into their creative side," she said. "For both kids and adults, I try to convince them their ancestors were creative, long ago they were surviving through these skills of creativity. So if adults, especially adults, come in and say 'I'm not creative,' and there's always those in the mix,

New location to open fall of 2017 17 8th St. S, Fargo


it's offensive to me almost. And I'll tell them, 'That's offensive, to me and your ancestors, because you are here because someone in your family was creative.'" Wielding the knowledge that not every project will turn out as first conceived, the teacher-at-heart isn't afraid to let people find their own path along the way. In fact, trial and error is at the heart of Thorson's policy on making art. While the project's end result is what initially draws people into attending a class, according to Thorson, the process is what stays with them. "Creativity is making mistakes and being ok with it, and moving on. Honestly, that's all it is," said Thorson. As construction nears completion at Make Room's Eighth Street location, the business is expanding in other ways too, like hiring the operation's first supplemental staff, including a gallery director and storefront manager. With enough room to host nearly every aspect of art, from creation to display, Make Room is sure to serve as an incubator for innovators of all ages, skills and styles.

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

appetite?

ast month, the City of Fargo dropped off a blue mammoth recycling bin on my curb. It was a welcoming sight. When I heard rumblings within the community about the bins taking up too much space in their garages and complaints about the inconvenience of having to recycle, I almost fell off my bike into oncoming traffic.

I admit that I too, at times, have been annoyed with the little inconveniences of trying to clean up the planet. The low-flow showerhead my husband recently installed has left me shivering more than once, and the highefficiency lighting makes my living room look drab instead of warm and comforting. But I’ve adjusted. Our efforts

C.J. English is a Fargo native and the author of the Amazon Kindle Best Selling Weight Loss book, "WTF am I Supposed to Eat?" She can be found locally at Rejuv Medical Aesthetic Clinic, where she offers private coaching for weight loss and wellness. She devotes the rest of her time to writing. English's breakout memoir "AFFAIRYTALE," debuted at No. 1 on Amazon Kindle in Diaries and Journals in 2015.

to be more earth-friendly make us feel like we’re doing something to help instead of harm our planet. My husband and I also do something else, something much more radical than just turning off the lights and unplugging from the grid. We eat plants–a lifestyle that has reduced our carbon footprint far more than all of our other efforts combined. I realize my quinoa-andavocado-toast-eating lifestyle is martian in comparison to the Fargo of the '80s in which I grew up. It was a Fargo where anything south of 32nd Avenue was considered “the country” and seemed like a good place to drive the gravel roads and smoke out of a pop can. Back then, Fargo was… Fargo. Today, we are urbanites. We are the most liberal city in North Dakota, where more juice-drinking, plant-eating individuals now reside than ever before. My wish has come true. Ten years

"No longer is eating a plant-based diet just for hippies and health nuts." #BeTheChange ago when I would speak to audiences about health and weight loss, the words “plant-based” or “vegetarian” were gasp-worthy. Eyes would roll, whispers were exchanged and seats were abandoned. I didn’t dare say the word “vegan” or I would have been booed off the stage firing range-style in a hail of tomatoes. Today, Fargo is waking up. We have more options for meatless meals than ever before, in the grocery stores and in the hundreds of restaurants of this town. We have vegan cafes, juice bars, farmers markets and co-ops. Farm-fresh eggs are prevalent, vegetarian options are more abundant and we have little green leaves on menus showing us meatless dishes. There’s a signal of the rise in consciousness of big corporations who are listening to the demands of the public. The world is waking up. • The number of plant-only eaters in the U.K. has risen 350 percent over the past 10 years. Forty-two percent of those are between the ages of 15 and 34. • In 2016, Google trends data revealed a 90 percent increase in vegan searches.

• Eating plants is currently the No. 1 food trend beating out paleo and gluten-free diets for the top spot. • “According to the EPA, the livestock sector is one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide pollution, and the single largest source of both methane and nitrous oxide. According to the world bank, animal agriculture is responsible for nearly 90 percent of Amazon rainforest destruction.”* There is a movement all over the world and people are realizing that the consumption of animals, our health and the health of the environment are intrinsically linked. I have said for years, “come and live with me, I will cook for you and you will never miss eating meat.” And that if they did, it would only be for a reason that stems from ego or a deep-rooted notion that if we don’t eat meat we will wither and die, only to be buried in a protein-starved grave. When I met my husband, he was a meat eater. I always wondered what would happen if I fell in love with a meat eater. How would we raise our kids? Would I be okay with bacon being cooked in my kitchen–in my virgin frying pan that has

never experienced anything other than stir fry or the occasional cage-free egg? Two things happened: 1. I chose the right man, or rather, he chose me. Either way, my genius boyfriend was already aware of how his choices (food and otherwise) impacted the planet. He was on board to change. Perhaps he had been waiting for a good reason to make those inconvenient changes all along and I was just the kick in the butt he needed. 2. My assumption of “let me cook for you and you’ll never miss meat” was accurate. That’s exactly what happened. Seven years later, I don’t have to cook for him in order for him to not eat meat. He is a completely self-sufficient plant eater and together we raise our kids that way as well. It’s been 15 years since I’ve stopped eating animals and seven years for my husband. No longer is eating a plantbased diet just for hippies and health nuts. Now, it’s just a smart way to live that can help decrease our ecological footprint and promote great health. It’s not a trend, folks, it’s a revolution.

TAILGATING

Talk

C

hristmas is still four months away but you can tell Santa Claus to "just chill out, man," because Bison football tailgating is here and so is the most wonderful time of the year. The trailers, the Bison decals, the meat on the grill, the music, the friends–it's all back. But before we get to the football, and the tired storyline of whether or not the Bison will return to glory, it's time to get our tailgating situation figured out. NDSU made a huge change to the tailgating setup this year by increasing the number of reserved spots by 279. If this is news to you, you're already too late to cash in on prime tailgating real estate. But don't start writing that nasty email to NDSU just yet. PHOTOS BY J. Alan Paul Photography and Paul Flessland

Bison Illustrated Editor

Here are your options

One, there are still 219 general admission spots for tailgaters who didn't get any reserved spots. Two, there's an NDSU football tailgating pass ticket exchange online. If you don't want to gather your things and wait overnight to get a spot in GA, the ticket exchange is a godsend for you.

Here's how it works

We all have that friend who has that friend who is getting married this fall and it happens to land on the same day as one of NDSU's home games. Said friend who has to go to a wedding on Bison gameday (seriously, who does that?) can't make the game and won't be tailgating in their reserved spot. In the past, you would have to convince your friend to give you their season pass for the reserved lot and you would make a blood pact to ensure they would get their season pass back from you so they can return to their reserved spot for the next home game. This year, there's no need for a blood pact, so put your knife away. Every tailgater with a reserved spot in the West Lot this year received six nifty, colored reserved parking passes for their tailgate in the mail–one for each regular season home game. They know they can't make it to at least one game because of that silly wedding so what they can do is give you the reserved pass for that game

and not worry about tracking you down for that season pass. Or, if you're that poor fan that has to go to the wedding, you can go online to the Bison tailgating pass ticket exchange and sell your reserved pass to make a little cash. Seems easy enough, right?

Here's why NDSU is doing this

They want to fill every reserved spot for every game. No abandoned reserved spots means more Bison football crazed fans for the parking lot party. Everyone wins, except for your friend who will be watching wedding vows instead of Easton Stick touchdowns.


(More) General Rules & Guidelines:

• If you are over 21 and you’re drinking, conceal your beverage in a plastic cup or mug so no one bothers you.

Rules are generally for the military and school, but there are several you should keep in mind so you can enjoy your experience without getting booted out of the tailgating festivities or ruining your day.

• This isn’t a music festival. Clean up after yourself.

• If you’re under 21, don’t drink. There’s security walking around the lot and they will bust you. Don’t get a ticket, be smart. • Drinking and driving is still against the law.

• General Admission tailgating lot opens five hours before kickoff. It’s on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Get there early to lineup on 17th Avenue North. And if you have a set time you think will be early enough, go even earlier. The line tends to form the Friday night before games. • Go even if you don’t have a ticket to the game. Plenty of people in the tailgating lot don’t have tickets and will migrate with you to watch the game on TV. Remember, the lot does close 30 minutes prior to kickoff. • Don’t be a mooch. Bring a rolling cooler to transport your own beverages, and have some extra cash on you to donate to the tailgaters that are nice enough to feed you. • Good luck making a phone call. If you need to meet your friends somewhere, go to the alley that cuts down the middle of the lot. • Make the opposing fans feel welcome. It’s your responsibility to uphold NDSU’s reputation. Plus, we’re probably going to win anyway, so what’s the point of trash talk?

Bison football is back, folks. Make sure you review the tailgating lot rules and guidelines and get that menu ready. The most wonderful time of the year is here. Let's do this. Go to gobison.com to see the rest of this year's football schedule. 9/2 - NDSU vs. Mississippi Valley State at 2:30 p.m. 9/23 - NDSU vs. Robert Morris at at 2:30 p.m. 9/30 - NDSU vs. Missouri State (Homecoming) at 1 p.m.

• Move around. The best way to experience Bison tailgating is to check out other tailgating spots and visiting friends all over the lot. • Sunglasses and sunscreen... just trust me on this.

nside Gasper's School of Dance, the delicate face of Nimuué or "Lady of the Lake" peered down at Matthew Gasper, artistic director of the FM Ballet, from the confines of an elongated canvas. The sliver of her face represets the notion of a woman who, by some estimates, explored North America before the Pharaohs ruled over Egypt. Gasper explained his initial interest in developing a ballet based on the story of an ancient skeleton unearthed in the early 1930s between Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, and Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. Inspired by the artist who created the painting hanging behind him, Gasper

The Muse of History

The more that's uncovered about Nimuué and her journey to the glacial landscape of the region, the more questions are raised. While it may never be determined exactly when she lived or where she was from, Rose has achieved detail finer than any scientific experiment could discern through her paintings and sculptures. "As a dancer and choreographer, art really motivates me a lot, so looking at different paintings like this one of Nimuué helps develop the mood and shape of a ballet," said Gasper. "For example, this picture here, it's the colors, but it's also the flowing of the brush strokes that I look at. I see water, I see ice, I see stress with the red but also peace within her face." Like many area artists inspired by the story of Nimuué, Gasper utilized his craft to bring movement to a story preserved only through the bones of a young woman from before recorded history. Under the direction of Gasper, the FM Ballet will perform an original continuation of the full-length ballet called "Spirit Rising" on September 21. The performance will take place during an event called "Unveiling Nimuué" at the Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes, and will feature a contemporary style with aspects of


"As a dancer and choreographer, art really motivates me a lot." the elements, nature and Nimuué's exploration of the terrain. "The story is really open ended and it's as creative as we want it to be, but we also want to be as true as we can to the facts of the archeological find. Phletus especially is very into the detail, he's a scientist first," said Gasper about Phletus Williams, composer of the original piano accompaniment to be used during the FM Ballet's performance.

Preserving a Forgotten Story

Serving as head of the Glacial Minnesota Woman Organization (GMWO) with his wife, Williams and a group of volunteers have been working to preserve and understand the story of Nimuué, the name they coined after investigating the story some know as "Minnesota Woman." The Williams couple also introduced the tale of Nimuué to artist Rose, who joined the GMWO as creative director after dedicating her artistic inspiration exclusively to the tale of Nimuué. Since she was discovered on the sight of Highway 59 in 1931, the curious story

of the perfectly preserved body went unheard for the most part with details of the woman's life constantly shifting from the results of one science experiment to another. While her remains were buried ceremoniously by the Dakota Sioux, thus halting further research, her story is kept alive through the work of artists and activists. For Gasper, creating a ballet based on Nimmué comes from the desire to not only dazzle the eyes but also open the mind to perspectives of a woman at the brink of humanity. "That's what I look forward to every time we hit the stage, is for that moment of inspiration from a little kid looking up at a ballerina and thinking 'that's it,'" said

Gasper. "I think that goes for any live performance, you get the inspiration to want to do that, to be that graceful, do that many turns, or jump that high. That is why one, I liked performing when I used to dance and two, why I like watching the audience during a performance."
