What’s a story or feature you loved in Fargo Monthly in 2018?

April’s “Beer, Wine & Spirits Tour.” My friends and I are still trying to check all the “To-Do’s” from each brewery off.

Fargo Pride in the Park!

Favorite spot in town

Hands down, Wild Terra Cider & Brewing. I’m a sucker for the Lilly Dipper they make that’s infused with strawberries and brown sugar. Plus, they have a vegetarian/vegan menu, and their upstairs seating has couches and games, making it a really cozy spot to hang out in the winter.

What’s an ideal date night for you?

Rosey’s Bistro. My boyfriend and I love their cheese plate and specialty mules. Plus, some nights there is someone there playing the piano. #Romance

Favorite local food/drink

For food, I’m a sucker for India Palace‘s Mushroom Balti. For drinks, you can’t go wrong with a locally roasted pour-over from Young Blood.

Favorite local drink

Since I started working downtown, I’ve become a frequent visitor at Babb’s Coffee House. Their daily special drinks are always so delicious and creative, and the staff is super friendly!

What’s an ideal date night for you?

My husband and I love Izumi! They have great hibachi, appetizers, sushi and more on their all-you-can-eat menu.

Favorite event of the year

I went to a lot of concerts and events this year (shoutout to Jade Presents for bringing so many great acts here!), but being in the second row for Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats show at Bluestem was definitely a highlight for me. I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for years, and I got to interview keyboardist Mark Shusterman ahead of their show for FargoMonthly.com, which was basically just like the cherry on top. If you ever get the chance to see them live, do it!

Did you learn anything new about Fargo this year that is fun?

I got married in September, and I learned what a fun but also stressful process that can be. My husband and I had our wedding and reception at Sanctuary Events Center, and our day could’ve been a lot more stressful if it wasn’t for the wonderful people who work there. They all made sure everything was taken care of so we could have a perfect day. Also, we got a crazy amount of compliments on the food from Chef’s Table, their in-house catering company. If you’re planning a wedding or other kind of event, I can’t recommend that beautiful venue and the delicious food highly enough!
