FARGO — Despite their building being listed for sale, Brew Bird has promised customers they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
The assertion is based on a Facebook post shared by the restaurant on Friday, Jan. 6, when signage was posted in front of the restaurant and a promotional listing appeared online.
“While our landlord has listed our building, fear not – we’re not going anywhere!” the post read. “We’re here to give you all the funky fried chicken you can handle for the foreseeable future!”
The building at 300 N. University Drive is on sale for $650,000, according to online listings. The 2,000-square-foot building, built in 1948, is described as a retail “investment property.”
“Beautiful downtown restaurant building. Directly on University Drive with 14,000 vehicles passing by daily. Full renovation and new commercial kitchen. Tenant lease in place. Excellent future owner/occupant opportunity,” the listing reads.
Brew Bird first opened at this location in September 2019. It was formerly the home of Daran’s Southern Soul Food.
Forum inquiries to Brew Bird and Core Property Group (the company listed for sale) were not heard back.
Local Entrepreneurs Host Pop-Up Museum Night
Fargo entrepreneur and former CIA officer Will Cromarty will host the first of a series of pop-up museum nights at the Fargo Brewing Company on Saturday, January 21 at 7pm.
Cromarty is a participant in the fall cohort of the Builders and Backers Idea Accelerator. Organized by Heartland Forward, a nonprofit economic development organization, the program seeks to uncover ideas for problem-solving in America’s heartland.
Saturday’s event will be the first of three events planned for 2023. According to a press release, the pop-up store will feature “vintage artifacts ranging from space to spies, and will feature live music from DJ 1PrettyRicky.”
Cromarty created the museum incubator with the goal of bringing educational experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to the metropolitan area. The rotating “micro-museum” is intended to allow residents to test-run their museum exhibits as a trial for potential long-term museum displays, the release explained.
Builders and Backers Idea Accelerator sponsored by Grand Farm and Emerging Prairie at Fargo. The fall cohort offered 10 North Dakota residents $5,000 to test their ideas. The 90-day program includes 45 days of learning how to bring ideas to life and another 45 days of experimentation.
