Paul McCartney doesn't make it North Dakota a whole lot -- which makes his performance at the Fargodome tonight a must-see for locals. Two locals who would love to attend the show but can't are Patty and Casey Absey , the owners of the Blackbird Woodfire pizzeria in Fargo. Patty tells the Washington Times , "We want to go to the concert but we're kind of busy running a restaurant right now. That sounds kind of lame, but that's just the truth of our situation."

The Abseys -- who would at least like to offer Sir Paul and his band free pizza -- actually took the name of their restaurant from the Beatles song "Blackbird," which McCartney wrote for The White Album .  “The blackbird has a negative connotation to some, but it also symbolizes luck and prosperity," explains Patty. "I went back and listened to the song a couple of times again and thought [it was] perfect.”
