Bernie’s Bungalow, a downtown bar with outdoor garden seating, so appropriate in these Covid-19 times, is normally considered a gay-friendly establishment and has the rainbows to prove it.
It was the venue for another large Bronson for Mayor campaign event on Monday evening, under cloudy skies and calm winds.
About 100 people gathered after work at the popular hangout to hear Dave Bronson talk about his vision for an open economy, safe streets, and a city government that is not the enemy of small businesses.
Bernies is considered Anchorage’s original martini lounge, and has been open since 1997 at 626 D Street. TravelGay.com lists it as an LGBTQ+ friendly bar with live music, DJs and specialty martinis.
On May 6, Bronson has a rally in Eagle River at the Lion’s Club, featuring Gov. Mike Dunleavy, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan and Congressman Don Young. Check back for details.
