no dogs allowed on the menu

Next month, tourists from all over the world will visit Beijing for the Olympic games. I'm sure many fearful and reluctant foreign diners will be happy and relieved to hear this news: Dog meat off the menu during Beijing Olympics.

Dog meat has reportedly been removed from the menus of officially designated Olympic restaurants, and Beijing tourism officials are telling other outlets to discourage consumers from ordering dishes made from dogs.

Then again, tourists who are actually looking forward to trying dog dishes are going to be disappointed. According to city tourism bureau Vice Director Xiong Yumei, waiters and waitresses should "patiently" suggest other options to diners who order dog. Nice try, Beijing.
