Gluten-free Beer

Friday, July 29th, 2005

I googled “gluten free beer” and came up with, to my surprise, several beers that are actually gluten free! I have no idea if they are even a tolerable substitute for wheat based beers because none of them, to my knowledge, distribute in Alaska yet. If you are in any of the areas […]

My Wichita Recommendations

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

I’ve enjoyed Kansas so far, minus the heat. The heat is trying my patience and reminding me of why I love Alaska so much.
If you make it to Wichita, so far I can suggest these:
Good eatin’:
Famous Dave’s
Hog Wild BBQ
Good sights:
Botanica
Museum of World Treasures
Old Cowtown Museum
But mostly…this.
