Anchorage does not shut down when it gets dark—well, that is when it actually does get dark (it’s still light at 3 am in the summer!). Bars here—and throughout Alaska—open early (in the morning) and close as late as 3 am on weekends. There's a ban on smoking in bars and bingo parlors, as well as in restaurants. The listings in the Alaska Dispatch News entertainment section, published on Friday, and in the free weekly Anchorage Press ( cover concerts, theater performances, movies, and a roundup of nightspots featuring live music.
