Every Alaska industry is an important part of the state’s economic fabric. Alaska’s well-known industries like oil and gas, mining, and fishing are inextricably linked with engineering services, financial institutions, healthcare facilities—even nonprofit endeavors. It is our goal to cover businesses in all of Alaska economic and geographic sectors, from family-operated farms in the Mat-Su and manufacturers in Fairbanks to budding cannabis dispensaries, tourism-based entities in Southeast, or Southcentral’s large retailers.

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
