Brown Jug is holding a Mardi Gras Beer Pairing Dinner today! If that sounds like your jam, you can stop by Raven Landing from 7-9 p.m. If you want to come dressed in purple, gold and green, you might have a chance at a Mardi Gras crown. It sounds like the chef is going to be running with a Cajun theme, which seems delightful to me. But then, I think Cajun-style meals are incredibly delicious, so I’m more or less biased. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

By today, I’ll be pretty much checked out in anticipation of Spring Break. Actually, come to think of it, I am even as I write this. But in the event that you’re not, you could head downtown around 10 a.m. for the actual start of the Iditarod. I specify actual because, due to a lack of decorum on the part of Anchorage, they insist on having a “ceremonial start” down there. Basically, they run the dogs all of three blocks on borrowed snow, then load everybody up and send them here for the actual beginning of the race. It’s a bit baffling. In any case, watch, but don’t approach the dogs.Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief
