The grand finale of 2009 as well as to the first decade of the 21st century is this Thursday night, Dec. 31st, and here’s just a taste of what’s going on in the general Burien area for New Year’s Eve 2010.

First off, keep in mind that law enforcement in King County will be out in full-force, conducting their “X-52″ DUI patrols around the area, so get a designated driver, walk, ride your bike or take a cab if you’re going out.

Secondly, we recommend calling your establishment of choice prior to just showing up, just to make sure that they’re open and that everything’s hunky dory.

And if we haven’t listed something else you know of, please email us so we can add it to our list!

    Above, in the Lighthouse Bar section, you write “Washington Apple’s” – Apple’s with the apostrophe is the posessive form. Should it have been “Apples” – the plural form? I don’t read the Blog – or anything else, for that matter – looking for mistakes. I stumble over them. I do try to check in every day – I’ve even got my laptop set up to open Firefox to your site when I boot. I live in Burien and your blog is an excellent way to keep up. Thank-you.
