In college, my buddies and I would descend on Chili's and order the queso dip by its nickname, "Fat Dip." This happened so often, one of the waitresses would greet us with a flirtatious smile and, "Hey guys, fat dip?"

The Ketchikan Arts Council's 29th annual Wearable Art Show, World Beat, was held over four shows this past weekend to sold out crowds at the Ted Ferry Civic Center.

Ketchikan has been hosting the popular event since 1986, one year before the World of Wearable Art Show debuted in New Zealand.

The stereotype about life in Alaska is being washed away with each warm rain storm. No matter how many times I tell my friends out in The World that it rains in Southeast, especially Ketchikan, and if it's not raining, it's getting ready to rain, they still ask about the snow.

Patricia Ann Roppel arrived in Ketchikan as a newlywed home economics teacher in 1959, the same year Alaska became a state - and she was quickly captivated by its history. Canneries, fishing, old mill sites, mining; for decades she, husband Frank Roppel, and, later, their children, John and Cindy, explored Southeast Alaska's beaches and its forests, looking for pieces of the past.

A couple of weeks ago, I featured Bleeding Heart Brewery, a new brewery that's in the making out in Palmer. This is another Alaska brewery that came in under my foamy radar and was revealed to me by Chris, the server at Midnight Sun Brewing Company one day when I was enjoying fine libations in the brewery's Loft.

Ketchikan has the reputation of being on an island with a poor deer population. I have my doubts. It could be something as simple as access, which would then make it pale in comparison to Prince of Wales — my home island. Students show me pictures of the bucks they got on POW. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer. Friends head over there too. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer.

There’s a new brewery on the radar in southcentral Alaska. Patience, my beer-loving Southeast friends: You’ve got a new brewery on the way too, but Baleen Brewing of Ketchikan is a ways off yet. It’s not quite a race to the finish, but Bleeding Heart Brewery is one of three new breweries up here that could open late this year or in early 2015.
