Alvinisms 1209

"You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one."

-James A. Froude (1818 - 1894)

Did you know: There is as much ice on Antarctica as there is water in the Atlantic Ocean.

Thought of the day: I just ran the San Diego Mud Run and it was sooo awesome. I'm pooped so I won't be writing much. You can see my review on it on YELP. Then add me as a friend so I can become and Elite! Thanks.

Food for thought:

Middle Eastern spiced ground lamb flatbread with toasted pine nuts, fet, green peppercorns and parsley.

Saturday morning it's Iditarod time! Prolly one of the coldest temperatures I've been in.

I am here!

And there were people lining the streets and up buildings.

Newton Marshall the Jamaican musher, trained under Lance Mackey, saying wassup to the crowd.

And the only guy dancing on a dogsled.

And Lance Mackey, the person who peaked my interest in Alaska. I recommend you hear his story.

With the dogs in the back. We're here.

Fur Auction drawing in some crowds.

Each of these coats cost at least $1000.

Staging area.

Some dogs were super chill.

Some were just down right crazy!

After the start of the race Drew and I hit up Snow Goose/Sleeping Lady Brewhouse but it wasn't open yet so we went to Pioneer. Hahaha. Rad place.

At Pioneer we had a few drinks then went back for some grub.Check out the ancient cigarette machine!

Grilled Alaskan salmon blackened and seared to perfection atop a fresh baguette piled high w/ lettuce, tomato, red onion and lemon caper aioli.

Sleeping Lady Brewing Company’s Golden Ale beer-battered, hand-cut chicken strips. Served with either honey mustard or tossed in our signature Buffalo Sauce and accompanied by celery, carrots and bleu cheese dressing.

John Henry Oatmeal Stout.
