Kobe’s is on a roll

Kobe's sign in front of restaurant in Pinehurst Plaza.

In May, 2011 Kobe’s Steakhouse and Sushi Bar opened in the Pine­hurst Plaza in Bismarck. The Kobe’s restaurant was familiar to some local residents as there has been a Kobe’s in Fargo for quite some time. In fact, it turns out that one of the reasons Kobe’s opened in Bismarck was due to the requests and suggestions from nu­merous out-of-area customers. After lis­tening to these requests, it was decided that locating another Kobe’s in the mid­dle of North Dakota made sense.

Seven course meal means love in many ways

By Stacy Sturm

To coincide with Valentine’s Day, February is national Love Without Fear month. Love is a many splendid thing, but sometimes relationships could go wrong. In 2005, 1,181 women in the United States were murdered by an intimate partner (Bureau of Justice Statistics). That’s an average of three women every day. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006. That’s more than 600 women every day. Approximately 36 North Dakota women and men have died as a result of domestic violence. Continue reading

Just wingin’ it

The Chat-n-Chew Cafe is symbolic of all the small town coffee shops in the U.S.A. It’s a place where nostalgia reigns. A place where locals gather daily to discuss current events in town, the state of the world, and some­times each other.

Located in the heart of Wing, the Chat-n-Chew offers home­made meals and kuchen. And any local will testify, when they ‘do German’… it is the best!

I can hear some of their knoephla soup calling my name…

It’s not very big, but definitely makes up for size with small town hospitality! The friendly staff makes everyone feel welcome. It is a Must Stop destination for bird hunters, bikers, tourists, travel­ers and locals alike.

Drop on in for a hamburger & shake before heading over to the Wing The­ater for the show!

The Chat-n-Chew seats about 45 people, but can easily spill over into the hotel next door. It’s a nice place to have a gathering of family or friends. Far enough away to feel like you went somewhere- close enough to be home in a jiffy.

The Chat-n-Chew is easy to find. (North of Sterling on Hwy 14 or East of Wilton on Hwy 36) Located at 203 Main Street, Wing.
