I Love This Sort Of Thing

A dialect survey for California. The ones I don't pronounce the same, or call something different, are the British Columbia influence in my speech pattern.

Quite a few gave me a laugh, especially this one:

118. What do you call a drive-through liquor store?
a. brew thru (0.42%)
b. party barn (0.26%)
c. bootlegger (0.10%)
d. beer barn (1.20%)
e. beverage barn (0.42%)
f. we have these in my area, but we have no special term for them (16.61%)
g. I have never heard of such a thing (67.57%)
h. other (13.42%)

There are other states surveyed, but haven't looked at them yet.
