I'd never heard of Fargo prior to this thread but I'm quickly gaining the impression that it's not the most popular holiday destination in the country?
Well, it's not that it's a bad place, but in January it can get very cold there (and in my hometown too). If you like winter sports, it's a good destination. There's museums and shopping and theaters. It's also however, a long way to go for a party in the winter.
Please allow me to step out of lurk-dom and introduce my self. Hi, I am Osohappy1, I am married, with 2 grown children and 1 teen at home. I live in Fargo, ND. I would just like to offer you a warm welcome when you visit our city. Yes, we do have a couple of comic book stores. One that comes to mind is Paradox which is located downtown.
Unfortunately we are in the midst of a cold snap here. I think the low this a.m. was 15 below. One can always hope it will warm up soon!
I agree with you that is a long way to travel for a work party! Especially in the winter time. You never know what the weather is going to be like from day to day, and we do live in an area where a winter survival kit for your car is a must!
Anyway, Welcome to Fargo!!
