Take Me (out for pup cups) With U.

First Avenue is legendary (hello, Purple Rain), but the criteria for what earns a spot on the side of the building remains the source of many local myths. So while musicians don’t quite know how to get a star, your pup can be a star when posing in front of names of the greats.
