My family has been entertaining a similar idea for some time. We want to set up an Alaskan style dinner theater on Friday and Saturday nights. Serving Alaskan King Crab, Red Salmon, Corn Fritters, Homemade Sourdough Bread, Ribs and Steak. My Father-In-Law (Mike Campbell
) would sing a few sets and then I (dressed up like an Old Sourdough) would recite some Robert Service, like The Cremation of Sam McGee
, and my wife is a fiddle player with over 20 years experience. Maybe if we were lucky we'd be able to find some other local talent as well. What a hoot that would be.
My Father-In-Law retires next week and will be leaving Alaska to their retirement home in Florida. One of the local radio stations in Anchorage had a 1 hour tribute to him as a farewell.
