Start the weekend off with some delicious Midwest-inspired food. Catch up with the pals at Prairie Kitchen on the main floor of 701 Eateries over a lefse platter and mocktails. We recommend almost anything on their menu, but especially their hotdish of the moment. Also, be sure to get a cocktail from their extensive drink menu.

Twenty Below Coffee Co.
For your first morning, Fargo’s craft coffee scene should be your first stop… and you can get more than caffeinated. The gourmet toast menu at Twenty Below Coffee will fill you up with something warm and (excuse the pun) toasty. Couple that with a hot cup of Joe, and you’re ready to tackle your day.
14 Roberts St N, Fargo | (701) 566-0977
Duration: 30-90 minutes
Grab your pals and head to the latest facial bar in town, Face Foundrié. Take a skin quiz to determine your service, or choose from 40-minute facials, mini-facials, and even lash wax and brow services. With the aim to make skincare accessible, affordable, and fun for all, go and see for yourself!

Grab lunch at Mas Tequila
Mas Tequila has something for everyone; you can find a meal you love with contemporary, local, and authentic Mexican. If you’re unsure what to get, they have house specials you won’t find anywhere else.

Stop by The Shoppes at Blu Water Creek
Next, a stop at The Shoppes at Blu Water Creek may be the best end to your afternoon. Stroll through Leela + Lavender for gift boutiques with fashion items and home decor. Laurie’s carries trendy women’s specialty clothing. You’ll also walk by Grain Designs, EcoChic, and Mcneal & Friends, all unique furniture and décor shops. Pick out a stylish new jumper and some décor to bring home.
32nd Ave & 45th St, Fargo
Rustica Eatery & Tavern
After your relaxing afternoon, treat yourself to some munchies. Rustica is a great place to unwind after the big day and have some good food and maybe another glass of wine. This casual fine-dining spot has a cozy vibe with Spanish and Italian influences swirling with delicious American flavors.
We recommend the prosciutto-wrapped stuffed chicken breast or any of their wood-fired pizza.
Take-out and delivery options are also available.
315 Main Ave, Moorhead | (218) 277-5388
Live music can be found all over Downtown Fargo, just a hop over the bridge from Rustica.
Start at the local Irish pub Dempsey’s Public House, which has local talent on the main floor most nights, as well as their upstairs space, The Aquarium, which hosts touring indie artists.
If your group would rather take in some comedy, head to The Cellar in Front Street Taproom’s basement for local and traveling comedy acts. Hop around downtown bars, and you’d be surprised by the number of performers on the weekend.
After your long day yesterday, relax this morning before starting on your fun Sunday plans.
Morning pick-me-up at Youngblood
Before brunch, stop by Young Blood for a cup of their incredible Arabica bean blend. This café can be found right in the heart of Downtown Fargo.
623 2nd Ave N, Fargo| (218) 770-4728
Duration: 1 hour
Start the day with a lovely yoga sesh at one of the many studios that offer drop-in classes. Sweat it out at Mojo Fit Studios or Haute Yogis, or opt for a traditional practice at Lucent Yoga or Downtown Yoga. Mojo even has 7-day unlimited traveler passes, perfect if you plan to go a few times while in town.
Mojo also has virtual options if you’d like to take a class in the comfort of your hotel room before emerging for the rest of your day.
Bottomless Mimosas at Marge’s Diner
For a savory treat after your yoga session, try out the new Marge’s Diner. They’re serving brunch no matter the time of day, plus lunch and an exclusive brunch menu. Grab a mimosa and try their crepe tacos or breakfast lasagna.
220 N Broadway Dr, Fargo
Fargo Theatre Selfie
Round out your cozy weekend with a fun selfie (or catch a movie if you have the time!) in front of the Fargo Theatre. This 1920s theatre is a great backdrop for you and your gal pals to commemorate your trip.
