Fargo Food Truck Festival

Food trucks are a proud American tradition. They date back to the prototypical chuckwagon of the cowboy era, a little horse-drawn field kitchen presided over by a “cookie” who’d probably smack you over the head with a ladle if he caught you sneaking chili before your shift ended. Food trucks have also played an important role in Hollywood right from its start. Imagine working as a stuntman on the set of Sparticus during filming in Death Valley, sweat pouring down your brow after a long morning shoot, and your relief at the sight a food truck puttering down the road toward you.


There’s an old Jewish joke about an old Jewish lady. One day she’s sitting at home when all of a sudden she starts saying “Oy, am I thirsty. Oy, am I thirsty. Oy, am I thirsty.” Her husband, having heard enough of this, gets up and brings her a glass of water from the kitchen. She drinks it down, and then starts saying “Oy, was I thirsty. Oy, was I thirsty. Oy, was I thirsty.”

“Scuba diving is just a whole new world,” said Aaron Olson, owner of Mick’s Scuba. “You’re with a group of people, and yet you’re not. All you can hear is you — your breathing, your bubbles. You can see walleye and northern in the lake near your house, or vast expanses of yellow-green coral and tropical fish in the Caribbean. But no matter what, you’re amazed every time you go out.”
