As promised, the Fargo-Moorhead events calendar has revitalized itself in a hurried fashion. Detailed below are only a fraction of the entertainment options for a full weekend.
After a year’s hiatus, the graphic design competition Cropped is back. From 6:30-9 p.m. Thursday, head over to Drekker Brewing Company to watch the four designers go head-to-head in a timed, themed design project, judged by the participating audience.
The artists will be given select stock photos and fonts and 25 minutes to create work worthy of public commentary. Prizes will be awarded to the chosen winner. Cropped is a free event, unless you’re tempted by a craft beer from the local brewery.
Actor and comedian Kevin Hart brings his WHAT NOW? TOUR to Fargo. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Friday in the Fargodome.
Hart’s stop in Fargo is notable considering the variety of national and international venues he’s performed, including Madison Square Garden and London’s O2 Arena.
The show contains mature content, and tickets are still available, starting at $38.
Maybe physical activity via incessant dancing is more your style on a Friday night. Head to the Nestor from 9 p.m. to close for Stretch Out, a multi-manned lineup with a ton of house music.
This event boasts some of the region’s best house DJs, including Woody McBride, Baktatr, Guy Jean and a duo performance from Casey Borchert and DJ Uptempo.
Cover is $5 before 10 p.m., $10 after.
The Waffle Room
Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., Folkways is hosting a pop-up waffle shop in downtown Fargo.
The purpose is to illustrate the demand for brunch options, while simultaneously teaching the process of opening a restaurant. Folkways is a locally founded organization that works to enhance the prosperity of Fargo through infrastructure, events and community.
The jokesters are back Saturday at 8 p.m. in Askanase Hall for the last time this fall.
Saturday’s show will run on a half-n-half format, with the first half hour being short-form pieces, then transitioning to long-form improve for the remainder of the performance.
It’s free of charge and open to all students.
