Anchorage Winter Adventures
City: Anchorage
Tel: +1 800 544 0988
Thousands jammed the streets to cheer drivers and teams for the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. It's called "The Last Great Race" and, around Alaska, interest in the Iditarod dwarfs the Super Bowl or any other event. Throughout Alaska, the events leading up to the race dominate the media, continuing for days until the finish. My wife Mary and I were sampling the winter activities around Anchorage, and we quickly got caught up in the electric mood of the start of Alaska's most famous sporting event. At the ceremonial start many viewers carried newspapers that featured photos and biographies of each entrant. Strolling vendors offered pins, hats, posters and other race souvenirs, while others sold cooked reindeer sausage, beverages and other temptations.Local favorites like Jeff King, Dee Dee Jonrowe and Martin Buser loped their sled dog teams through the sprawling block party to boisterous cheers and whoops.

Black Diamond Golf
City: Healy
Tel: +1 907 683 4653
Black Diamond Golf Course takes its' name from the historic Diamond Strip Mine. The Diamond Mine was developed in 1943 as part of the war minerals program of the US government and was instrumental in easing the coal shortages resulting from World War II. The coal lies in a formation known as the Nenana coal bed, a foot hill belt boarded in the south by the high rugged masses of the Alaska Range and to the north by the broad flats of the Tanana Valley. The coal was hauled by truck five miles down a gravel road to the small railroad town of Healy (established as a mining camp in about 1905) where the railway transported it to Fairbanks for use by the US Army. Although no longer active, and partially reclaimed by the forces of nature, the Diamond Mine and its' effect on the history of this area is still visible for all to see!

Chilkoot Charlie's Promotions
City: Anchorage
Tel: +1 907 279 1692
Located in the heart of historic Spenard, Chilkoot Charlie's first opened its doors on January 1, 1970 in what had been The Alibi Club. "Koot's," as it is affectionately called by locals, began as a neighborhood watering hole with a live piano bar. The bar was very limited in size then, occupying only the part of the building that is now the South Long Bar. Owner Mike Gordon and a partner bought the bar having convinced themselves that an Alaska-Theme bar would be successful in Anchorage. Upon purchasing The Alibi Club, Gordon promised the doubtful former owner, Skip Fuller, that he would triple the gross sales within a year. At the time, Gordon was also working at KHAR radio and NY Life Insurance Co. in Anchorage. It was at KHAR that he met Alaskan author and radio personality Ruben Gaines, and the two quickly became friends. It occurred to Gordon one day that one of Gaines characters, Chilkoot Charlie, would be an excellent icon for his new bar. It had once been suggested that the bar should be named the Humpie Bar or Chilkoot Charlie's. Gordon invited Gaines to lunch and told him the idea. The bar would get exclusive rights to the name Chilkoot Charlie, and in exchange, Gaines could sell his books, cartoons, records, etc. from the bar. Gaines thought it was a great idea, and with a hand-written contract, Chilkoot Charlie's was born. It is interesting to note that this one lunch meeting has arguably done as much to add character and flavor to Spenard and Anchorage as a whole, as any other event to date.Anchorage was about to become an oil boomtown as oil was discovered in abundance on Alaska's north slope. Anchorage grew quickly and Chilkoot Charlie's grew with it. By the end of its first year in business, Chilkoot Charlie's had become Alaska's favorite bar. Gordon had indeed tripled the bar's gross sales, and then some. Customers flocked to Chilkoot Charlie's to enjoy its Alaska atmosphere and outrageous entertainment. The costumed bartenders (Gordon included) provided laughs by the ton. A favorite was one of Gordon's characters called Rocky the Flying M*ther F*cker. Gordon would wear a World War One infantryman's uniform, a leather pilot's helmet, and scarf. Customers howled with laughter at the non-stop antics. Music was provided by the bar's original band - The Rinky-Dinks, and later on by a piano player by the name of Mr. Whitekeys. Mr. Whitekeys now runs The Fly-By-Night Club here in Anchorage. It was he who coined our logo "We cheat the other guy and pass the savings on to you!" The crowds grew steadily, and before long an expansion was needed.

If you're one who appreciates some of life's finer pleasures, then make it a point to visit Club Paris and treat yourself to a huge mouth-watering steak, char-broiled to perfection and unequaled in tenderness and flavor. Only the finest fresh beef is used and all steaks are individually cut and aged on the premises. We are noted for our fresh Alaskan seafood, as well, featuring Halibut and Red King Crab, the finest crab available.Luncheon entrees and daily specials are created with the same attention to detail as our evening menu. Our hamburger is ground fresh daily, and we smoke, roast and slice all of our sandwich meats in house. Finish your meal with one of our special desserts such as Scott's Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie, Stan's fabulous Key Lime Pie, Steve's New York Style Cheesecake, or Jeff's Creme Brulee, all made from scratch right here at the Club.
