“Are you downtown by chance? We’re having a pop-up party at the 4th ave theater. With chalk!”
I don’t always love graffiti – in fact, there are plenty of times that it just doesn’t belong. But this lookout shack (if that’s what it is!) down by the Ship Creek boat launch sits all alone, and the graffiti side looks out at the ocean. I can see how it’s the perfect canvas.
Sometimes when I walk downtown, I like to take the alleyways instead of the main streets. Often, this means I get to say hi to kitchen staff on their smoke breaks or skirt stinky dumpsters, but sometimes it means I get to see a special detail like this tile adorning the backside of the Muffin Man (a former tile shop).
Do you have a favorite Anchorage alleyway?
I just discovered that Fat Ptarmigan added an ice cream counter to their already fantastic combo of wood-fired pizza and espresso (not to mention the best caprese and canolis in town!).
