Can we get new food at the Dome?

Some options to get variation at Bison games

Food: we all love it, and we got to have it. Plus, we pair food with everything from holidays to banquets and movies and especially sports. It’s hard to imagine a baseball game without a hot dog, and every Super Bowl party has dips, wings and pizza.

The same goes for North Dakota State football games, and the Fargodome already has quite a few good eats available. Dippin’ Dots, Domino’s pizza, roasted almonds, popcorn, taco-in-a-bag, the options are nearly endless, but have you ever thought to yourself how nice it would be to have something else to eat while watching the Herd dominate.

That’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today, what new foods would be awesome if the Fargodome revamped its culinary offerings. Some may be pretty normal, others may be a bit out there, but all in all, they’ll be something the people want.

As previously stated, the Fargodome currently serves Domino’s pizza, but wouldn’t it be cool to have a local vendor instead? Fargo has no shortage in pizza places, and lots of them could be good choices.

Spicy Pie, Deek’s and Rhombus Guys are just a few local favorites that could be chosen. Although they might be pricier or not as quick, I can guarantee it would fly off the shelves, and extra points for supporting local businesses too.

Sticking with local businesses, there are also plenty of other places that could do great on game day. Red Pepper, just north of campus, serves cheap, greasy and delicious food, with their tacos and hot dogs as highlights. If you ask me, it’s the perfect game day snack.

Another option is Insomnia Cookies. The late-night cookie makers have mouthwatering cookies of all sorts that are already a hit amongst college students.

Lastly, can we at look putting a Sandy’s Donuts stand inside the stadium? Sandy’s already sells their doughnuts at tailgating, and more often than not, they’re constantly pushing doughnuts by the dozen out the window. Moving them in the stadium just makes sense.

Sticking local one more time, have you ever thought about what it would be like to have some traditional North Dakota treats at the North Dakota game?

It only makes sense to show some state pride. Knoephla soup is a North Dakota favorite and is a great game day treat. Fleischkuekle is another traditional dish that could be served. To put it simply, it’s deep-fried hamburger meat that is typically enjoyed plain or with ketchup.

It doesn’t get much more American than football, and it doesn’t get much more American than deep-fried hamburger meat. It’s also something that can be carried and enjoyed with one hand, which is always an advantage for an enthusiastic fan.

Although this doesn’t cover everything that could be added, it is somewhere to start, and it supports both local businesses and traditions. With options like these available, not only would it taste good, but it would show visitors the pride we have in our state and heritage.
