The longest day of the year was last week. There was even a festival called the Downtown Summer Solstice Festival in downtown Anchorage to celebrate the event, even though every day after June 21 was a little shorter than the day before. Since one of our friends also had a birthday, we had a birthday event too. Saturday was full of activities on one of the most beautiful days of the year.
During the day, my family walked around to see the displays and events, eventually arriving at 49th State Brewing Company to have appetizers and claim a spot on the rooftop (our friends were joining us within the hour for a birthday dinner.) The beer there is okay (I am not that big of a beer drinker but King Street has some really good beer if you are into that sort of thing.) The rooftop and food at 49th State are both great though. In fact, I had the Seafood Artichoke dip and I highly recommend it. The rooftop is a winner when the weather is great because the views are fantastic.
After we left the restaurant, all of us (the three couples) went to Williwaw and a few other places. There are three floors in this cool bar. The bottom floor is a dance floor/concert floor. The middle floor is a lounge. The top floor is a rooftop bar. On the way down, Micah took a picture of the three ladies. (Don’t we look like we are on a Theater set?)
I hope you enjoyed! If you get a chance to participate in Summer Solstice next year, I highly recommend it.
