UPDATE: This post is about Jazzie Mae's, a vegan restaurant in Fargo that no longer exists. I'll leave the post up for posterity.
Fargo, North Dakota just opened their first vegan restaurant, Jazzie Mae's. I'm pretty sure that means that North Dakota just opened up their first vegan restaurant as well. (I guess it's called a cafe, but I don't really distinguish between the two.)
This makes me happy. The Fargo Forum's review of the restaurant is positive, even though it has that whole insecure-in-my-masculinity "I love meat, but..." vibe to it. But like I said, it was a positive review, so hopefully the meat-eater angle will get more omnivores out to the restaurant.
I plan to eat at this restaurant every time I'm in Fargo. If I lived in Fargo I would eat at Jazzie Mae's every week just to do my part in keeping it open. Even if I didn't like the food. Fargo NEEDS this. Or rather, veg*ns living in Fargo need this. If you live in Fargo, please go now and let me know how it is.
So Fargo is now tied with Minneapolis/Saint Paul in the number of vegan restaurants. This makes me sad and happy at the same time. On the one hand, I feel pride in my home state and I'm overjoyed that there is a fully vegan option in Fargo. On the other hand, I really with the Twin Cities had more than one vegan restaurant.
