    I mean I'll take my dog to a outdoor place if its dog friendly, usually a few other dogs there as well.

    He never gets to sleep in bed unless I just washed him and he's been a really good boy. Otherwise he just begs at edge of bed then goes to his own pillow

    Also etiquette question, never dealt with this in the bay but LA is whack sometimes

    If you are going to somebody's bday party or dinner, should you ever expect to pay part of the bill (not including parking / valet, gift and presents)? Always thought bday person pays for everything?

    People who take ill-behaved dogs to public establishments are assholes, otherwise it's cool.

    My dog sleeps on the bed and it owns.

    Not just funerals, but also black and white tie. It's truly "formal" in the sense of everyone dresses according to the same form. Of course there are differences in cut and maybe a pocket square here or a boutonniere there, but yea, pretty much if you're wearing black, everybody else should be wearing black too.


    Black serves this function in MC too. Or really, any dark colors do. That was kind of the point of the whole Brummell philosophy of dress. Black was not always the color of formal wear though. According to James Laver it was popularized by Bulwer-Lytton, through his novel Pelham, and pretty codified by the 1850s. But even after that there were always nonconformists. The first tuxedo jacket was a bright blue. But anyway, in addition to emphasizing silhouette, today dark colors also indicate a formal mode of dress. But it doesn't seem like here black necessarily indicates any particular mood without other clarifying cues.

    Varies widely IME. I've experienced everything from bday person pays for everything to everyone else covers the bday person.

    Wish I had a dog, but don't have a grass yard so I don't think it would be fair to the dog :( Been considering a cat as a consolation prize but dunno...

    think the protocol is for all attendees to collectively pay for dinner/drinks/whatever for birthday boy/girl. that said, I kinda like the idea of the birthday boy/girl throwing some kind of birthday party for friends/relatives to repay for being difficult/asshole at points in the past year. a kind of 'I value you, thanks for your support' thing.

    I like doing nice things for my friends and fam on my birthday. Usually involves baking cheesecakes. Just a little way of saying thanks for being awesome.

    People that feel the need for a ridiculous baller birthday are probably trying to fill a hole in their soul.

    My friends always pitch in to cover the birthday person's dinner. The birthday person usually buys the first round of drinks.

    Every birthday dinner I've been to everyone else covered the birthday person's bill. Although in Asian cultures the birthday person pays for everything.

    Depends who invites whom, right?
    I mean, if say the best friends invite other friends to celebrate a friends b-day then everybody pays for themselves and between them cover the b-day person, but if b-day person is inviting everybody to celebrate him then you could end up paying for yourself only or b-day person paying for everything.

    And I think ryan troll is just a troll, get well note was too tame to be actual fanboy.

    I do that daily, at restaurant I sit outside and always call a head to ask if it's okay and no grocery stores (it's illegal here).

    I never had a complaint from anyone, most places the staff/waiters spend more time petting my dog than they do on me.

    Oh and my dog almost always sleeps next to me in my bed.




    Lol what, I live on the 4.th floor and I have a dog, as do a lot of people.

    A dog doesn't get socialized or get proper exercise for that matter in a yard anyway.

    What do you do instead? And what if it wants to go out real late? Then you can just open the door and let it run around...
