It was so GREAT leading my first post-pandemic bar tour! And how perfect to be back at "the longest bar in the world."  Thanks to the Alaska Historical

Historic Bar Tour of Downtown Kodiak

Another great time in Kodiak!  I counted over 50 crawlers at the B&B, and we had at least 25 at the Mecca.  Four bars wasn't enough for this group, and we ended our evening at a fifth bar - Bernie's - so people could do karaoke!  Thanks again to the Kodiak Historical Society for sponsoring another wildly successful bar tour! - DV
