Bite after joyous bite, I reveled in the thin, crisp patties, which contrasted with the creamy, slightly tangy quality of processed cheese. While the patties may have been lean, they were salted to perfection (unlike many of its contemporaries), and having them double stacked made for a hefty bite. 




For the last two weeks, I delved into every corner of the Anchorage arts scene, and it was an eye-opening experience. I have been ensconced in the city’s music scene for almost a decade – I actually got my start as a photographer by photographing Local Roots shows at Koot’s.
