Fat Ptarmigan

Wow! this looks good! the poem and the pizza!


441 W. 5th Ave., Anchorage, AK 99501

IMG_2790For a pizza adventure
visit the craftsman      Guy

add-ons: basil and tomato – my choice.

I savored the tangy sauce with fresh herbs

Denali Brew – a hoppy
making IPA; refreshing
after a balmy Tony Knowles ride.

Service at the tundra bird
resembled Florida
in my opinion, not
the land of the polar night.

So, if you’re thinking
of changing your plumage,
consider a stop in Anchorage –
follow the wild yeast.
