Oil & Gas

Alaska runs on oil. From providing jobs to contributing directly and indirectly to economies statewide, oil and gas companies are crucial to Alaska’s fiscal well-being. Alaska Business is an advocate for responsible resource development and as such we report on the oil and gas industry as it pursues projects that are environmentally sound, benefit local communities, and are profitable.

The Marx Bros. Café

January 2020

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.
