More mysterious goings-on around Burien lately, as a UFO/UAP was spotted in Shorewood, and it laid down a strange crop circle in front of Vinnie DiFabio’s home:

Some skeptical B-Towners say this new “flying saucer” evidence may actually be a marketing ploy for the upcoming Burien UFO/Film Festival, set for Friday, Aug. 4, 2023.

“Aliens have escaped and are loose in the city looking for the Burien neighborhoods champion,” one nearby resident who preferred to stay anonymous told The B-Town Blog. “According to a note left next to the UAP, they say they’re looking for someone who can name all 19 Burien neighborhoods.”
