Last week, thousands of people participated in our Happy Birthday Burien contest by reading, commenting, sharing and tweeting articles about local Burien businesses.
Thank you to everyone who helped promote Burien’s turning 20 years old! We especially want to thank Burien Press, White Cap Frozen Yogurt, Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop, Skin Perfect, A Place for Pets and Oliver’s Bite for providing the prizes for our contest.
Below is our list of winners. Each person won a $20 gift card from one of the participating businesses. Gift cards can be picked up from each of these businesses, with a valid ID, starting today. (more…)
Editor’s Note: On February 28, 2013, Burien will be 20 years old; just old enough to no longer be called a teen, but still not old enough to buy beer. To celebrate Burien’s exit from the teenage years, we are partnering with a number of local businesses to give away $20 gift cards. Each day we will publish an article about an independent Burien business who will be giving a gift card away. To win the gift card, all participants have to do is leave a comment on the article (the comment can say whatever you want and will not influence your chances of winning) and share the article with the hashtag “#happybirthdayburien” so we can track the posts. Winners will be selected at random and will be able to pick their prize up on March 1st at the appropriate participating business. Happy birthday Burien and good luck Burienites!
Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop is Burien’s original independent wine bar. This year, on the 4th of July, they will be celebrating their 7th year doing business in Burien!
The wine bar is located just west of of Burien Town Square on SW 152nd St between Grand Central Bakery and One Earth Medicine. Visitors to Vino Bello can expect a wide variety of wines, beers on tap, tapas to enjoy with your drinks, and a knowledgable staff that can help you select the perfect drink. (more…)
Burien Town Square just released a video YouTube inviting people to “rediscover” Burien. The video features a number of local people and Burien business owners such as Michele Smith from Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop, Greg Corner from Eat Local, and Todd Carden from Elliott Bay Brewery.
Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop on 152nd St in Burien will be hosting the Animal Aid and Rescue Foundation’s 4th annual Whine and Cheese live auction fundraiser on the evening of Friday, September 14th.

Up for auction are a number of items including a behind the scene tour of the Seattle Aquarium, tickets to any Showbox show, tickets to the Tacoma Comedy Club, restaurant gift certificates, as well as many other items. There are also a number of raffle prizes.
The event will start at 6pm and continue through 9pm. Donations for auction items or raffle prizes such as gift cards or gift baskets are still welcome. To make a donation contact Michelle at Vino Bello by phone.
If you’ve taken a drive down the SW 152nd this week you may have noticed that Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop, Burien’s original wine shop, is sporting a couple new signs and a fresh coat of chianti colored paint. But new signage and paint isn’t the only thing that’s been going on at Vino. Last Saturday, 20 Burienites gathered in front of Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop for Cash Mob Burien to go support Burien’s only new book store, Burien Books, in OIde Burien. Afterwards, the mob group gathered back at Vino to celebrate with the consumption of Beer and Wine. Keeping up with the excitement from the paint and the mob, this weekend Vino Bello is welcoming one of Washington state’s most awarded wineries, Long Shadows Winery. (more…)
At the last two of Discover Burien’s Burien Farmer’s Markets we have been giving out our new “State of Burien” stickers to people who stop by our booth. Now our stickers are available to everyone while supplies last at a number of local and independent businesses.
Stickers are available by request for free with any purchase at the seven local businesses listed below. What could be better than supporting local businesses and getting a free sweet Burien sticker?
Once you stick your State of Burien sticker on something, take a picture and email it to us or post it to Facebook and tag us in it. We want to see where they end up! (more…)
