Around 9:15 p.m., C. Scott Fry, the hotel and bar manager, watched the black bear walk down the sidewalk past the hotel lobby. “And as soon as he got to the bar door, it made a left and walked in like he wanted to have a beer,” Fry said.

Years ago, I walked out of a bar in downtown Anchorage, and there was a moose on the sidewalk.
Moral: Never leave the bar, unless there's a bear in it.
