9 Weeks In Alaska - Weekend 1

We arrived in Alaska the weekend after Thanksgiving. What an incredible place. We're staying at Extended Stay America in Anchorage. We've stayed at Extended Stays several times and really enjoy having kitchen facilities. It saves money and allows us to eat our own cooking.

The first weekend we walked around downtown Anchorage, which is a few blocks from the hotel. Robin loves to do I.

Each week I'll update what we've done and seen.

Downtown Anchorage

There are some great shopping spots in downtown Anchorage as well as eating establishments. So far our favorite spots for eating are Humpy's, The Brewhouse, and F Street Station. Humpy's serves up some great halibut, the Brewhouse some excellent micro-brew, and F Street has the best eggs Benedict on the planet according to Robin and countless others.

Tavern on the Lake

We traveled to New Jersey again in November for a 3 week lighting set. We had spent 4 months there earlier in the year, but knew we could still find something of interest.

We found a great little tavern in Hightstown called Tavern on the Lake. Great selection of beer and their soups and sandwiches were excellent. Here are a couple of pics from that day.
