FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The proprietors of a Fargo pizza parlor named after a Beatles song written by Paul McCartney say they would love to cook for the rock star and his entourage.

McCartney is scheduled to play the Fargodome on Saturday night. It's his first appearance in North Dakota.

Blackbird Woodfire owners Patty and Casey Absey had planned to contact McCartney's handlers about offering the group free pizza, but didn't get around to it because business at the recently opened restaurant is booming.

Patty Absey says she and her husband are longtime Beatles fans who selected the song "Blackbird'' for their restaurant's name because it has sentimental meaning for them. The lyrics are posted on the back wall of the parlor.

The Abseys say they are also too busy to attend the concert.
