I SPENT SOME FUN TIME IN NENANA BACK IN THE NINETIES: Nenana Ice Classic – closing in on all time record latest ice-out. “According to the ice breakup log, the latest the ice has ever gone out was May 20th, 1964 at 11:41 AM Alaska Standard Time. As of this writing there is about 28 hours to go to break that record.”

Is the Howling Dog Saloon still there? Or was that in Fairbanks? My memories are kinda fuzzy. . . .

UPDATE: Ah, memory returns: It was Moocher’s Bar in Nenana.
