    herzog63's shop off the waterfront

    Get the best in sports paraphernalia and hip-hop fashion at Bases Loaded down by St Paul's Harbor. While you suck on a cool Otter Pop or an icy cola and glance through the latest in urban sports apparel (including T-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, shoes and ball caps), you can hear the latest gossip about town and the island by talking to the owner, our very own herzog63. Expect him to show you every nuance of Kodiak hospitality, but don't expect him to give up tips on the best fishing spots.

    What to buy: Professional sportswear is the main inventory at Bases Loaded, but other sports accessories and collectibles are also available.

    Don't trip on the steps!

    It's 3am, you've just been kicked out of the Mecca (see my other tips if you don't already know about the Mecca) and you are hankering for a liquid takeout to cap the night off. Where do you go? To Safeway Liquor! Available to Fisherman, Coasties and imported drinkers alike, they are your one stop, short distance stumble from the local bars!

    What to pay: Expect to pay and arm and a leg: thank god you are self medicated enough not to care.

    Foot Fetish

    This is a neat store, besides footwear, there is some wonderful jackets to keep you warm. One thing I like about Kodiak is that the shops have wonderful signs to welcome you. So keep your eyes open. No gaudy light filled plastic. Real artwork.

    If you arrive in season, feel free to go down to the boat harbors and try to buy fish directly from the commercial fisherman. You might even be able to trade fresh salmon for beer, or baked goods!
