Weekly Digest – Issue #8

It was a busy week in Anchortown!

The Northern Lights hotel is finally being demoed, we have a shiny new crop of Top 40 under Forty to celebrate, and two Alaskans were nominated for a James Beard award (known as the culinary world’s Grammys). There’s a new podcast in town for all you dog mushing aficionados – you can listen once a week until the Iditarod, when the schedule switches to once a day.

If you’re looking for something fun to do, there’s plenty going on this week: professional speed dating, Mardi Gras murder mysteries, outhouse races, and live music. I hope to see many of you out and about!

Have a brilliant week, Anchorage.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
