What’s your top charity/organization in town?

Unseen. I learned about their story at 1 Million Cups in Fargo, and it really opened my eyes.

Our staff picks

Favorite local food

Hi-Ho Burgers and Brews: great hamburger, unlimited fries and a brew.

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

My wife and daughter wanted a dog and I said no, so we compromised and got a dog, so the Pets issue is a family favorite.

What’s your top charity/organization?

I’ve had the opportunity to attend both of Audience of One‘s Fargo events. It’s incredible to me, as a football nerd, that Wentz, especially after a relatively rocky rookie season, decided to give and give as aggressively as he is before he even signed his second NFL contract. The NFL is a no guarantees league, and for him to give that much of himself so early on in his career really shows you what kind of person Carson is and what kind of representative for the state and for the University he is as well. I believe in the message of AO1, and I believe in Carson Wentz.

What’s a fun weekend local getaway you love?

Lakes Country. Fargo has incredible options for anyone who wants to enjoy the lakes experience for any reason. Golfers, fishermen, boating enthusiast, water-sports enthusiasts, it doesn’t matter. Pelican Lake, Detroit Lakes, Lake Lida, etc. are all within an hour’s drive and offer beautiful scenery, active game & fish opportunities and wonderful food and drink options. Even if you don’t own a cabin, the lakes have easy access for boats, public beaches and restaurants like Zorbaz, Hotel Shoreham and Spanky’s.

Favorite Fargo hidden treasure

Graver Barbers. It’s a little downtown barber shop, but the people are awesome and he’s the only guy who’s really been able to get my beard cut the way I like it. It’s also been recently remodeled with a bit of an industrial feel, and my wife and I stole a few ideas for our new basement.

Go around and ask every person from here where the wood chipper is. Also, catch an FM Redhawks game.

The Arts Partnership is amazing. I love how they nurture and cultivate art in our community, as well as supporting local artists.

Favorite new business in town

Relatively new to downtown, my favorite shop is Mint + Basil. I never walk out their door empty handed!

What’s an ideal date night for you?

Dinner at a local restaurant (or food truck) and one of the many concerts Fargo has to offer would be perfect!
