It’s going to be a rainy start to the summer season. There. It’s been said. Maybe that will jinx us into sunshine! Oh well, it just makes the Roadhouse all the more a cozier spot to hunker down and wait for trails to dry, skies to clear and full summer to arrive. We’re seeing plenty of summer-seasonal folks get back to town and each day seems festive with reunions, catching up on what they did over the winter and those returning getting their fix of hotcakes, Rudys, their favorite cookie… or just a long hot shower at the end of a miles long journey up the AlCan. Welcome back all you summer people; it’s been a long winter and we’re happy to see all your fresh, suntanned faces! Now, unpack the sun, too!

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
