We had a very fun afternoon with John's nephew. We played a round of golf on a kid's course in a park near the Red River, went swimming at our hotel's pool and went shopping for some Fighting Sioux gear at Ralph Engelstadt arena.
For lunch we stopped by a drive-in called The Kegs. It is called that due to the giant root beer kegs that are part of the building. Too funny!
Widman's specialty is something called chippers. They are chocolate covered potato chips. These were amazingly good! The chocolate had a very creamy and rich flavor. I should have gotten a bigger bag! We will absolutely be going back again to get more chippers!
Since we usually go to Grand Forks to visit family we don't usually have much down time. But when we do we like to play a little $1 blackjack. Some bars in Grand Forks have pull tabs and blackjack and sometimes a wheel of fortune. The blackjack is usually $1 minimum bets and 3-2 payouts. Any of the gambling profits always go toward charity, so if you lose, at least your money is going to a good cause! We have been unable to find a comprehensive list of bars that offer blackjack. If anyone comes across such a list, be sure to let me know! On this trip we visited Joe Black's and Playmaker's at the CanadInn for blackjack.
