Growing up, I have fond memories of sauerkraut pizza night at the Moose in Mandan.
Dad and I would meet up with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. We'd order pizza, the adults would order beer, and they'd talk about things that sounded boring to me while I ran crazy around the place chasing my cousins.
The Moose in Mandan, ND is one of those lodges like the Elks, the Amvets, the VFW. To be honest, I don't know much about the Moose as an organization, but I do know that every first Wednesday of the month is pizza night and it's open to the public.
Just walk in to the main hall and place your order - there will be a little bit of a line, but it's worth it. It's not amazing Chicago deep dish or anything, but it's decent with that local twist. They have all the usual pizza suspects like cheese and pepperoni, but order the sauerkraut/Canadian bacon ($8.50 + tax). It's my favorite.
Now I'm at the Moose again with my dad for sauerkraut pizza night, and things haven't changed that much. The pizza is still homemade. The adults still order beer. And I'm still running crazy around the place - only this time, I'm chasing my own little guy.
So mark your calendar - next pizza night should be Wednesday, October 6th!
