“Christmas in Spenard” is back at the Taproot! It’s wacky, tacky, irreverent, and generally hilarious. It’s not all Christmas-themed; they throw in a good dose of political skewering, Alaska humor, and a dash of Spam just so that they don’t forget their roots.

I love these door handles. They are funky and fun, and the perfect way to set the experience of dining at Snow City Cafe, which is also funky and fun.
I might need utensils this big for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Looking forward to turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes!
When I was little, I thought that every state had their own airlines, and the people who lived in each state got to fly on it. Makes sense, right? Florida Airlines, Montana Airlines, Vermont Airlines…
