In 1946, just after the end of World War II, Norman Brown hand-set the type and hand-fed a Linotype press to roll out the first 16-page issue of the Anchorage News. Over the following decades, the publication changed its moniker to the Anchorage Daily News to account for its shift to daily delivery and stocked its trophy cabinet with two Pulitzer Prizes for Public Service, cementing its regard in the minds of Alaskans.
Today, the newspaper lands on more than 50,000 doorsteps each week.

The sports section keeps up with the Aces’ triumphs, whereas the outdoors pages cover the Iditarod and the latest goings-on at Denali National Park. Readers can also gain insight into the business world, challenge their outlooks with editorials, and peruse entertainment articles before deciding to go see a local improv group or movie.
Air-filled structures within Pump It Up's indoor play-haven offer hours of safe bouncing enjoyment for youngsters two and older. Kids leap around in bounce houses during drop-in pop-in playtime sessions during weekdays, where they interact with other bouncers while getting exercise. An obstacle course adds challenges to their enjoyment, and inflatable slides bring kids back down to earth to start games anew. Pump It Up's space can be rented out for private events, such as birthdays, grade-school graduations, and a kid's first steps on the moon. Not just for children, Pump it Up also hosts teambuilding corporate events for adults and hosts family play times where parents are encouraged to jump along with kids.

A 2010 James Beard nominee for "Best Chef-Northwest Category," Ginger's Chef Guy Conley creates Pacific Rim and Asian inspired dishes that are as satisfying to behold as they are to consume. Using Alaskan seafood when it's in season, along with other fresh ingredients, he handcrafts each dish like a potter at his wheel, if pottery wheels spun delicious meals instead of hideous, frightening masks. Visit during lunch hours to try out the mu shu tacos ($11), a corps de ballet of ground, seasoned chicken, Chinese slaw, and house-made Hoisin sauce, line dancing in front of a flour-tortilla backdrop, or try out dinner's dream-like entrée of sesame-crusted ahi ($27) bathed in tamarind sweet chili beurre blanc and laid to rest in a Tempurpedic bed of coconut rice. Any meal choice will meet its match with a formidable drink menu of wine, sake, and regional microbrews. The black leather booths and the dark-stained wooden tables lining either side of Ginger create an ambiance of mystery and intrigue inspiring guests to interrogate their napkins into low-lying lap submission before the meal begins.
