S P OTLIGHT

A Personality All Its Own by Jamee Larson

Last summer’s construction on 8th Street South in Moorhead put area businesses in unfamiliar territory by effectively wiping out * in lounge only

their customer traffic. For Jim Mercil, then-owner of the Speak Easy Restaurant and Lounge, making up for the lost revenue proved to be a herculean task. On November 30 of last year, Mercil put the restaurant up for sale. Buying it was a no-brainer for Larry Hauger. Along with his business partner, Hauger took ownership of the restaurant and on December 1, it was business as usual.

Some people in the area refer to the restaurant as the “new” Speak Easy, but much of it remains the same. Walk through the doors and you will see the same Auburn 4-door sedan convertible in the northeast corner. The same gangster era portraits line the walls. Although there have been a few upgrades, the décor has been kept intact. “This place is really cool the way it is. It has its own personality and is a unique type of space,” Hauger explained. “The atmosphere and ambiance is something you wouldn’t want to change.”

Hauger has a long history with the restaurant. He had his first date with his wife in 1992 at the Speak Easy. They celebrated their grooms’ dinner there as well. There must have been something in the air because the couple is still married and have three children, all of which attended school in Moorhead. It is the history of the restaurant that makes it so special for Hauger, and it is what fuels his desire to retain the Speak Easy’s iconic status.

“Same, only better,” is the sentiment that has been attached to the restaurant’s new ownership. Long time chef Kent Larson still works for the Speak Easy, which has ensured that its signature dishes will still spoil your palette for all other food. Much of the other staff have remained as well, which gave the ownership transition a continuity that is responsible for a customer rebirth of sorts. Hit up the restaurant during the dinner rush and you would think time has stood still for the restaurant. In a way, it has.

“Speak Easy is open, and even more importantly, it is the same great restaurant it always was.”

The Speak Easy’s menu has something for everyone. Although it is an Italian restaurant, the menu includes seafood and American entrees as well. Start a visit with some of its signature appetizers like Italian nachos or fried eggplant chips, however, and you may not make it any further. For those that do, the Italian dishes include everything from bruschetta, tortellini carbonara, and lasagna (done three different ways).

On the seafood menu are such mouthwatering dishes as butterflied shrimp and deep fried walleye. Not to be outdone, the American menu features specialties like stuffed pork chops, ribeye steak, and Bonnie & Clyde’s prime rib (served Thursday through Saturday). The Speak Easy also features a full gluten-free menu, happy hour from 4:00 – 6:00 pm, and daily drink specials. As if that wasn’t enough, kids eat free on Sundays (ages 9 and under) and breakfast is served from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Sundays. Truly something for everyone.

Hauger would like to let everyone know that yes, the Speak Easy is open, and even more importantly, it is the same great restaurant it always was. There have been some upgrades, including bigger televisions, but a return customer will quickly notice that the atmosphere that has given the restaurant its identity is largely intact. “We always knew it was a great place,” Hauger said. “We are just trying to give it some love and make it even better.”

Speak Easy is located at 1001 30th Avenue South in Moorhead.

SAVE MONEY AND STILL GET IN SHAPE The costs of getting fit can sometimes seem formidable. Men and women on tight budgets may feel that gym memberships, home exercise equipment or costly personal training sessions are simply beyond their means. Such concerns can have long-term negative impacts on individuals’ health, which only highlights the need to find ways to save when attempting to get in shape. While there is no shortage of ways to spend money when trying to get back in shape, there are even more ways to save when adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Personal trainers also typically offer considerable discounts to clients who commit to a greater number of sessions than those who simply purchase one session at a time. JOIN A GYM AT THE RIGHT MOMENT. Many gyms capitalize on people’s New Year’s resolutions to get fit by offering steep discounts to men and women who sign up at the end of December or in January. Others may discount memberships in late winter when people want to get in shape before the return of beach season. Signing up during the height of discount season or when gyms are offering special discounts, such as anniversary or holiday deals, can save you a lot of money over the course of the year.

701-281-8656 It all started in 1971 when the Simeoneidis' Family opened a little take out pizzeria in Thompson Manitoba while working at the Inco Nickel mines.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK

The Simeoneidis' dedication to great tasting food and great value made the little pizzeria a success. Within a year, it was the busiest pizzeria in Thompson. In 1974 they moved the family to Winnipeg and opened a location at Waterloo and Corydon. Many more Winnipeg locations quickly followed. In 1990 they went international by opening in Fargo ND. One reason for their success is that they're always ensured that all menu items added over the years have been of the same high quality as their already famous pizza. They achieved this by sticking to their family's tradition of making fresh dough, fresh sauces, salad dressings, and the traditional Greek and Italian foods, all from scratch. This did not go unnoticed and they were quickly becoming famous for more than just their pizzas. Winnipeggers and Fargonians have acknowledged this dedication to tradition by awarding Santa Lucia Pizza with the following awards: "Best Pizza in Winnipeg" by Uptown Magazine, the Consumer's Choice Award for "Best Family Restaurant", "Best Garlic Bread" by the Winnipeg Tribune, Metro Community Choice Award for "Best Pizza", and a "Best Food Booth" from the Taste of Manitoba. Various Santa Lucia Pizza Locations are independently owned and operated so you may see slight differences in their menu selections. No matter which location you choose, deciding between the pizza, pasta, salads, signature chicken, ribs and the unforgettable Greek food will be a challenge, But whichever one you choose you will not be disappointed. We warmly invite you to enjoy a meal and experience for yourself the heritage of the Simeoneidis Family.

Lighten Up! Spring Tips for Freshening Up Your Home

by Ana Mitrovic

Spring is around the corner and it’s the right time to think about adding a little refresh your home after the long months of being cooped up indoors. With a few simple changes, you’ll feel like you’re in a brand new space without breaking the bank. Once the weather permits and you’re no longer relying on your heater, it’s good practice to open a few windows for a few minutes before heading off to work for the day. Allowing fresh air into your home is not only invigorating and refreshing for you, but a great way to rid your home of the stale air of winter.

10  | 


shopdinelive.net Pillows & Throws: A simple and low-budget way of adding a little bit of spring in your home is to invest in a few new pillows for your living room. Choose light pillows with chevron print, yellow, or light blue tones to help brighten up any room. If you are feeling crafty, pick up some inexpensive fabric and try your hand at sewing a few of your own pillow covers, mixing your selection with a few neutral canvas textures or a few white accent pillows. You can rotate these throughout the spring keeping your living area always looking fresh and crisp. Likewise, try a fresh new lightweight throw for the couch in a pale green to keep you cozy on movie nights.

Candles: Another easy way to spruce up your home for spring without spending too much money is with a new scented candle. After the heavier scents we tend to use during the holidays and winter such as cinnamon, pine, or vanilla try opting for fresher and lighter aromas. If you’re missing sandy shores of the lake, go ahead and try a Melon and Seasalt candle by Swan Creek Candle Co. or, for those craving thunderstorms and fresh grass, try the Creative Co-op Flaire Candle in

1, 2 & 3 Bedrooms

Fresh Rain or Tall Grass. All three are available at Country Greenery in Fargo, West Fargo, Dilworth, and Moorhead.

Flowers & Plants:

Everyone loves flowers, and

fresh greenery in the home always help to create a bright and cheery atmosphere. In the spring, opt for mixed bloom bouquets such as light colored roses and lilies. Peonies and hydrangeas are also a good choice for spring. Add some sprigs of eucalyptus to help create a clean and sharp color contrast. If you are looking for a few spring bloom choices that are more long lasting but which do require more care, choose flowering plants with bright pops of color, such as purple orchids or colorful gerbera daisies.

Donating & Cleansing: We all too often end up accumulating more than we need in our home spaces. A good practice to adopt to counter this accumulation is the “one-for-one” approach. For every new item you acquire, consider donating an item you no longer use. This will keep your home balanced as well as ensure that your future purchases remain intentional and well-thought out. Another great way to update your interior décor without spending a lot of money is to start a collection of favorite prints of your family and friends. Rotate these photos and rearrange their placement during the various seasons to give your home an instant lift. For more local ideas for interior design, candles, pillows and more, be sure to check out McNeal and Friends located on 506 Broadway N. in Fargo, or ScanDesign located at 110 N. Broadway in Fargo.

The flavors in their recipes and variety of foods they made are things that have stuck with him for years. In 2011, Randle and his wife Celena decided to move their family to Fargo, with hopes of a promising future ahead of them. After trying out several local restaurants, the Randles realized the variety and flavor they had come to love were lacking on a lot of the

menus. Not only that, but no one was offering the soul food they were fond of from their childhood. The couple had some experience in the restaurant industry, saw an opportunity, and knew what they had to do. Thus, Daran’s Southern Soul Food and West Indian Cuisine was born. Since they knew their business would be family-oriented, the name Daran’s comes from the first initials of each of their kids’ names.

In addition to the shamrock, another popular symbol associated with St. Patrick’s Day is the leprechaun. Although the most famous leprechaun is possibly Lucky from Lucky Charms cereal, the leprechaun actually goes back several centuries in Irish folklore. It is believed that the leprechaun is a short, aloof, gruff, and tricky character that possesses a pot of gold. Leprechauns pass their time making shoes. Legend has it that a leprechaun has never been caught. If you do happen to catch one, make sure you don’t take your eyes off of it or it will disappear.

Doggy Daycares: Pampering the Furry Members of the Family by Jamee Larson

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. ~ Roger Caras

Dogs have long been considered man’s best friend. It’s not unusual for canines to be personified as an actual member of the family. There are even pooches that have their own Facebook pages. Nowhere is the deeply cherished relationship between people and dogs more apparent than the doggy daycare industry. In the past, people who needed to board their four-legged friends did so at a no frills kennel generally consisting of a cage and a place for the dogs to run. Food, water, and a place to sleep was all that was expected. Fast forward to present day, however, and many area businesses have taken boarding to an entirely new level. HOME OF THE

Keep your family safe in the hotel room. Use a portable door lock to ensure your safety. It stops unwanted entry, even by someone with a key.

Skip the alarm and accommodate different schedules. Let your teen sleep in sometimes.

Give each child a set amount of money to spend and stick to it. Kids tend to be much more discriminating when they’re spending “their” money.

Look for free activities such as swimming or hiking. The city’s visitor bureau and the hotel concierge are good resources for free and low cost things to see and do.

Now, take a deep breath! Remember that even with advance planning, things don’t always go as expected while traveling. Focus on the amazing memories you’re making with your family.

SHEDDING YOUR WINTER COAT: Updating Your Look for Spring by Ana Mitrovici

The weather is warming up and you’re probably looking forward to ditching your winter layers soon. This spring, consider a few of these suggestions to welcome the new season and updating your look while at the same time keeping your savings intact.

The first thing you’ll want to do is pack away your down coat for something a little lighter and sleeker. Try a trendy and water resistant knee-length trench coat in navy blue or a neutral color like tan. If you’re feeling a little bit bold, try a pastel lilac or sky blue trench coat. In addition to keeping you dry on rainy days, trenches also help dress up any pair of jeans, t-shirt and ballerina flats combo while you’re out running errands. If you’re not ready to switch to flats just yet, pair your jeans with faux-suede ankle boots in tan or caramel for a timeless look.

Scarves are another great and simple way to update your look without spending too much money. Opt for lighter woven fabrics with fun prints that you can mix and match with a variety of other neutral tones. These optimistic colors are sure to put you in a good mood.

While out shopping for new wardrobe items, consider investing in a few well-made key pieces such as from silk rather than synthetics like polyester. In addition to the added luxurious feel, these natural fibers work better for regulating body-temperature, preventing bacterial growth, and keeping you more comfortable throughout the work day. Silk is also a great material for comfy pajamas!

To go along with your new items, you might also want to welcome some lighter nail polish colors as well. Crème colored nails are light and bright, and great for the workplace as well as for going out. Green is the go-to color for 2017, so don’t be afraid to incorporate it into your spring look, so you can try opting for a cheery hue like turquoise or mint green for your toes.

practical ideas, you will be armed with hope, enthusiasm, and tools for a successful spring cleaning.

CREATE A SAFE SPACE Most of us have a “Home Base” in our home where we set the mail that has to be dealt with, invitations that need an RSVP, and that random stack of things you’re not quite sure what to do with. Deal with this zone first. If your “Home Base” is clean, you can always retreat to this sanctuary for some fresh mental clarity. If you don’t have a home base, make all the beds in the house. You just need to start somewhere.

START SMALL The best way to overwhelm yourself is to sit down and make a list of all the areas in your home that need a facelift. So don’t do that. Start with one room, and start with what’s obvious. If you

haven’t made the beds yet, do that. And then focus in on one thing. Maybe it’s the basement closet that has become the purgatory for everything that doesn’t have a home. Maybe it’s the tupperware drawer. Maybe it’s the “cord drawer” that houses every charger you’ve ever needed. If you can walk into a room with a fresh set of eyes and determine what areas stress you out, that’s a good place to start.


shopdinelive.net HAVE DONATION AND THROWAWAY BAGS If everything you own doesn’t have a place to belong, you have to decide if you are going to get rid of some things, or change the way you organize (Hint: the first one is WAY easier). Stock up on garbage bags and label some “donate” and some “garbage” - and just start filling them up. If you forgot you had it, you probably don’t need it. If it doesn’t fit you anymore, get rid of it. If it’s not something someone else could use, toss it. If you’re sentimental, it’s okay to keep a few mementos, but the memories are what’s important, not the things that represent them.

SET REASONABLE EXPECTATIONS - THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT If you’re expecting to get everything done in one day, you’re setting yourself up for frustration and failure. Spread out your cleaning over a few weeks, taking a day off now and again to enjoy the fruits of your labor. There are a plethora of apps designed to help you regularly clean and deepclean your living spaces. I use Chorelist, and I’ve somehow transformed into someone who constantly washes out the inside of the garbage can. The app’s customizable interface can be a little daunting for those looking for something a little more simple, so you should also check out Unfilth Your Habitat (Warning: This app uses adult language to “encourage” you). It breaks things down into different challenges, gives you a time limit, and somehow cusses you into getting things done. HomeRoutines is also a great option, sans language. Another amazing app takes a little work to set up, but is absolutely worth it in the long run. For iOS it’s called Sortly, and for Android it’s called My Things, and it’s essentially a catalog filled with your stuff. You take a picture of something you

own, write a quick description, and log where it can be found. So the next time you’re wondering where that box of old wedding cards is stuffed, you can pull up your app, do a quick search, and know exactly where to look.

CREATE A HELPFUL ENVIRONMENT Whatever your battle plan, make sure you’re working in an environment that will encourage your success. Put on music that psychs you up. I use my workout playlist, but there are a lot of premade ones available on Spotify if you don’t have one. Another great distraction is listening to an audiobook. There are so many great titles available

Adaptability is Important in The Workplace Employee turnover, downsizing, an economy in flux, and many other factors contribute to the ever-changing face of business. While men and women might once have hoped to grow old with a company, today’s workers are more inclined to switch jobs several times before they retire. Companies routinely evolve to serve their customers, a learning process that will include some trial and error. Companies should be willing to try new strategies as they adapt to ever-changing markets. Workers who are flexible and able to adapt to adjustments in the workplace are among the most desirable employees. What defines adaptability varies depending on the profession, but taking the time to learn how to accommodate the needs of bosses and other workers can be a great way for men and women to ensure their long-term success.

shopdinelive.net Easy ways to

LOWER YOUR CHOLESTEROL High cholesterol is an issue for many men and women, who may or may not know that excessive cholesterol in the blood can increase a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease. That’s a genuine concern for many people, as the American Heart Association notes that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Statistics Canada reports that heart disease accounted for 21 percent of all deaths in 2008 (the most recent year for which statistics were available), placing it behind only cancer among the leading causes of death in Canada. The link between high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease has long since been established, but the good news is that even men and women with considerably high cholesterol levels can greatly reduce their risk of one day developing cardiovascular disease. Some may need the help of prescription medication to lower their cholesterol, while others might only need to make certain lifestyle changes to lower their cholesterol. Men and women should discuss a plan of attack to lower their cholesterol levels with a physician, who will determine if medication should be a part of the plan. Even if medication is a factor, the following are some lifestyle changes men
