Drooling Room Grand Opening to Benefit Burbank Animal Shelter



BURBANK, Calif. -- Story Tavern will open their doors to the animal community in celebration of their grand opening of their new dog friendly patio,” The Drooling Room,” on April 12.

The Drooling Room is the latest addition to Story Tavern www.storytavernburbank.com , which opened its original historically themed, pre-prohibition tavern in 2012, followed by its vintage game room, The Rumpus Room, earlier this year.  The Drooling Room serves as an indoor/outdoor dining room for both two and four legged customers, and features a permanent Doggie Honor Bar, where customers may choose from a variety of tasty treats for their furry friends.  All proceeds and donations generated by the Doggie Honor Bar shall forever benefit The Burbank Animal Shelter, who will also have a permanent display of BAS adoption and event information at The Drooling Room.

“The owners and employees of Story Tavern are so excited to have the opportunity to better serve our dog owning customers in the new Drooling Room, and to assist The Burbank Animal Shelter with the great service which they provide to the Burbank Community,” said Story Tavern Co-owner and General Manager, Diane Slaught.  “As a lifelong dog lover, I look forward to serving our new four legged customers!”

Guests will have an opportunity to enjoy a special lunch buffet with two drinks, treats for four-legged guest and a silent auction. Tickets are $20 per person and all proceeds will help the animals at the Burbank Animal Shelter.

The Burbank Animal Shelter’s mission is to return lost animals to their owners, find loving homes for stray animals, and control overpopulation through consistent spay and neuter efforts.

 “We’re honored to have Story Tavern include us in the grand opening,” said Burbank Animal Shelter Supt. Brenda Castaneda.  “The money raised at the benefit will help pay for animal care, community outreach and humane educational programs in the Burbank community.”

The event will also include a silent auction with original pet artwork donated by artist Bre Armenta.

“I believe in giving back to the community and what better way than giving back to the Burbank Animal Shelter,” Bre Armenta said in statement. “As a dog parent myself, I want to help promote finding good homes for pets and raise money to provide care for animals at risk.”

The Drooling Room Benefit will take place on Saturday, April 12, from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. at 150 South San Fernando Boulevard. Presale tickets are available at Story Tavern and the Burbank Animal Shelter located at 1150 North Victory Place in Burbank. For more information, visit www.BurbankAnimalShelter.org.
