Fargo, NORTH DAKOTA was built on the railroad.
It connected people and goods from across the country. A railroad tie had a very important role, connecting the transportation tool to the earth.
In the spirit of building community, and sharing our most valuable resource with the world, folks from our community would like to invite the entire world to dinner.
After Greg Tehven, a Co-Founder of DinnerTies, returned to his home community after being away for 8 years, he realized that the greatest invitation for friendship was to join someone in their home for a meal. This simple invitation would allow for a different type of relationship. One that is built around trust, kindness, and generosity.
DinnerTies is committed to connecting travelers with folks in our community for a dinner in their home. For those coming to Fargo, simply fill out the simple form asking a few basic questions. We will then connect you with a local ambassador of our community for a wonderful dinner in their home.
Our hosts role is to provide a wonderful meal, conversation, and offer friendship.
YOU HAVE QUESTIONS? WE HAVE ANSWERS. SORT OF.
