RE: Girdwood Forest Faire
Can't help much with Girdwood, but one of the most fun spots in Anchorage is Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse downtown, with live music almost every night & a fun mix of locals & visitors. Moose's Tooth (midtown) has the bet pizzas I've had yet. The related Beartooth Theatre Pub & Grill is a local fave with great food at good prices, & you can swill beer & much away while catching a movie. I don't much care for Chilkoot Charlie's, but it is a happening night spot as well for the party crowd.
Pick up a free copy of the Anchorage Press when in town for listing of pretty much everything going on in the area. In town, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail & the hike up to Flattop Mtn are local favorites too.
You'd probably also enjoy the Talkeetna area, about 2 hours drive out of Anchorage; beautiful river, cool spot, incredible views of Denali.
Back on the Kenai Peninsula, Homer's a great town, lots to do & see, very uniquely Alaskan. Kayaking out of Homer is a blast, & you may get to see some humpback whales as well as orcas.
