AK: Is Wasilla Becoming the San Francisco of Alaska?

Moose Bites, a catering outfit that specializes in Cajun dishes such as chicken and sausage gumbo, was named Business of the Week at a recent Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Wasilla, Alaska.

The exclusive event, which takes place every Tuesday at the Grand View Inn & Suites, just off East Parks Highway, draws the most important people in this town of 10,000: the mayor, state senators, small business owners, and others who just want to network.

Nearly everyone at the Grand View – a pharmacist, a fitness club manager, a member of a prominent rockabilly band – said they were there simply to meet other VIPs. That’s because Wasilla, once famous for being the home of Sarah Palin, is scurrying to forge a post-Palin identity now that the onetime mayor and Alaska governor appears to have deserted politics – and the city – in favor of bus tours, Fox News, Twitter, reality television, and big-money book deals.
