George Brown, owner of Lucky Wishbone restaurant in Anchorage, had a milestone birthday on Saturday that was open to the public. Brown turned 90 years old, and spent the day at his restaurant, amongst customers, staff, family and friends. Mayor Dan Sullivan presented Brown with a proclamation, declaring George Brown Day. Brown's daughter Pat Heller says her father did not want a party and only asked to spend the day at the restaurant.

Tina Fey and Steve Carell are the Fosters, but have become the Tripplehorns in order to get a table at The Claw, an exclusive seafood restaurant. After a couple glasses of wine and halfway through dinner, they get a visit from a couple of mean fellas who escort them into the back alley, trying to recover what's theirs. Being the Tripplehorns isn't fun anymore. The couple -- who wanted a night to remember and is getting it -- manage a temporary getaway. They make frequent calls to the babysitter who keeps jacking up her fee as the night grows later.

For close to a year, architects hired by the city have been working to develop a concept to make Ship Creek more attractive to tourists. Some of the plans include a blueprint to develop the creek into a full water front area with full access to the public. The revamp would also allow more room for businesses, hotels, and restaurants, along with a pedestrian-friendly area with bridge walkways. "Competition is good because that makes everyone step up," Patrick Hoogerhyde, co-owner of The Bridge, a restaurant located at Ship Creek, said.
