In general, people in Alaska have a much more relaxed dress code than people in the lower 48. When Judy comes to Alaska, she says she knows she’s going in the right direction because the closer she gets, the more she sees people who dress like me. And I don’t believe she means that as a compliment. So the one truly lovely restaurant I want to take you to will be inhabited by people in business wear, tourist wear, the occasional carharts and everything in between. We don’t stand on ceremony much up here. So long as you have clothes on, we feel that’s really all we can expect.
A dear friend of many years is coming to visit in August. She sent me an email inquiring into Alaska’s dress habits for going out to dinner in nice restaurants. This was my response. For the record, Judy is my sister.
