As the name would imply, it was dog friendly and we brought in our golden retriever. It has a full menu and a large selection of beers, spirits, etc.,.
What is really striking about the bar is it is in the middle of a residential neighborhood, so you get that local "flavor" of the area.
The Barking Dog is located at 705 NW 70th in Seattle.

The show would begin with the sax solo in the Marvin Gaye classic, "What Goin' On". Burns, on the show, alluded to past addictions and that his dad was a former NHL player.
A couple inquiries to KIRO employees did not result in finding any reason behind Burns leaving the station.

For just 15 dollars each you can tour this preserved gold and silver mine, preserved, pretty much in it's natural state.
Work conditions were not pleasant, so you get a real appreciation for what it's like to be a miner.
I think it's much better than going to a museum.

The Lake Tahoe area is unique in that border of two distinct states runs through a street.
On one said is the rather bucolic California side with motels and resorts. The Nevada side with legalized gambling, is lined with high rise casinos.
