It's no secret: Brian and I love a good reindeer dog. We've eaten them standing up, sitting down, next to a bonfire, and on the road, so we know a good one when we've found one. (If you'll remember, we even wrote an article about the best reindeer dogs in Alaska for the ADN a couple years back.) But one stand in particular has become more than just our favorite place to get our fix; it's become a signal of long days, warmer weather, and good things to come.
Yes, spring has truly arrived in Anchorage when M.A.'s Gourmet Dogs resumes business downtown in front of the federal building, so today, M.A.'s first day of business, is an exciting one that's caught the buzz all over local facebook pages and conversation. Brian and I would be down there ourselves to grab our reindeer dogs (Brian's with mustard, cheese, and jalepenos, and mine with just mustard) if we weren't so pregnant, so right now, we're celebrating instead with a blog post and a promise to M.A. that we will be walking to his stand with our baby in a Baby Bjorn as soon as we can! Cheers and happy 20th season, M.A.!
