ssindc -- thanks for that review. I left AK over 20 years ago and would definitely like to go back for one last salmon run and moose hunt before my bones won't be able to take that cold anymore. Maybe in a couple of years. Great hunting and fishing memories for me. Thanks again.
Although this is last year's post and only the most intrepid of travelers take on Anchorage in March like ssindc did (it must be the Falls Church pho), we're moving into cruise season. If you find yourself in Anchorage with a few extra nights and want a taste of the local culture, use the excellent overview above and consider Whale Fat Follies as an evening of light entertainment. This is a PG16 comedy sketch team that puts on a good show satirizing Alaska, without being crude, too insider-ish, or too wonky. I just received an e-mail and I remembered what a good time our group had having some pub grub, a few drafts (it's Alaskan casual) and watching the show and the reactions.
So if the stars align, you're in town with some open time and you want to catch some local flavor, check out Mr. Whitekeys. I do not have any financial interest in the group (they're so wacky, they're probably losing their fanny) but I can sometimes resemble the namesake after one of my many four meal days. enjoy
