During the summer at the North Dakota Race Track there are certain days you can catch some exciting races that start at 1:00 in the afternoon. If watching horses isn’t your thing, but you would rather sit in the sun why not watch the Redhawks baseball team? They have both early afternoon and evening games. Maybe baseball isn’t your sport. Well luckily the North Dakota State University Bison’s have an awesome football team that plays at the Fargodome. That way you and your date don’t have to get cold while watching an awesome game of football. Before or after going to the horse races, baseball or football game you and your date can check out and grab a beer at one of the many great local breweries in Fargo. Junkyard Brewery is a nano-brewery on 1st Ave N. that is open during the evening. Another new brewery with roots in the Norwegian culture is Drekker Brewery. They have a tap room open to the public from Wednesday through to Saturday evening. If you would rather test the culinary cuisines Fargo has to offer, there is Square One. It has a variety of cooking classes to offer. If you’re not a slave to the kitchen, don’t worry, they also offer painting classes where beer and wine are served as well.
Up for the Adventure
Fargo is growing culture with a ton of opportunities opening up for locals. One of the many scenes that continues to grow every year is the population of people running in the marathons that the city hosts throughout its streets.

You and your date have many more options throughout Fargo to stay excited.
