Anchor open Sunday for Prairie Fire

The Anchor's star runner, Schane Gross.

Anchor owner Schane Gross is one of the local Twitter celebrities committed to running this Sunday’s Prairie Fire 5k race. (She and a handful of others have been Tweeting about their training progress for weeks now.)

In observance of the big race day, which also will include a half-marathon and marathon route that goes right past the bar at 1109 E. Douglas, Gross is opening at 9 a.m. Sunday. Usually, the Anchor is closed on Sundays.

Beer will be flowing at 9 a.m. (It’s 5 o’ clock somewhere, right?) Flying Donuts will be serving their doughnuts at the bar that morning, and the Anchor’s lunch menu will be available. The bar will close at 3 p.m.
