    How does one figure out which Burien neighborhood one lives in?

  3. Nicole says:

    Are dogs allowed in beer gardens or no?

    Thanks!!

    • Question Authority says:

      How has it become the new perceived normal that dogs are members of the public? Please leave your poop crusted mutts at home, and more importantly out of stores I visit and shopping carts I place my food in. This is a public festival not a animal love fest, bring you mutt to a dog park instead and leave public places for humans.
