Around Town -- September 6, 2013

Posted: Updated:


Bismarck's bar in the sky opens tonight to the public.  It's called "Luft" -- German for "air" -- highlighting a four season patio feel with a glass ceiling that transforms to open sky.  Owner Dr. Rick Becker says it's a one-of-a-kind feature in North Dakota.

But Luft management isn't saying -- or showing -- much else.  KX was allowed a sneak peek, but for the full experience, you'll just have to come up and see for yourself.  Luft is located at 510 East Main Avenue.

An idea born in a bar becomes a food truck reality.  "This is an industry that we found that's just been expanding all around the country; hasn't really touched base here locally yet," says Jaden Ustanko, Frackin' Hungry.

Frackin' Hungry is serving up everything from Frackin' Tacos to Frackeroos -- deep fried tortillas tossed in sugar and cinnamon.  They'll even bring their frackin' fare to you.  "We can do your late night crowd at a bar.  We can do your lunch hour at the office.  We can do street fairs.  We can do weddings.  We can do private parties.  You ask and we say yes," says Jaden Ustanko, Frackin' Hungry.

"We love what we do.  We want to please the people that we serve.  Come get your frack on," says Jake Schlagheck, Frackin' Hungry.  To learn where they'll be next, go to the Frackin' Hungry Facebook page.

Heartview Foundation is launching a $1,000,000 million dollar fund-raising effort to undertake an expansion they say is much needed.  "When people call, it's a moment of intervention and if they have to wait, they lose that, we lose that opportunity," says Kurt Snyder, Executive Director, Heartview Foundation.

Currently, people do have to wait.  Heartview is out of space.  With the kick-off of their "50 Years of Hope" campaign, they're hoping to purchase the space next door -- known as the Gilman Building -- to accommodate up to 50 percent more patients.

You can contribute and have your name, or the name of a loved one, etched into a brick on the "Pathway to Recovery."  For more information on Heartview's fund-raising campaign, or to contribute, go to
