Ladies and Gents, Here is an updated list of things to do in Burbank and around this week and next! If you have anything you would like to add, or if you know of any events you would like to share, please let me know. I have a serious case of FOMO, and I can’t stand the thought of Burbank having fun without me!
Wizard of Oz Runs through August 20 at Glendale Center Theater. Get your tickets here.
Gravitas Runs through August 5 at Glendale’s Brand Library.
Clear the Shelters Today at the Burbank Animal Shelter, adoption fees for dogs and cats drop to only $20! That is a savings of more than $80 for a pup and nearly $60 for a kitty. The $20 fee includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, chips, deworming (gross), and flea medications (also gross). Take a peek at thevbas.org to see pictures of your potential new best friend. This is how we found our sweet Hodor 4 weeks ago. Just look at that face! Totally worth $20!!
Grand Opening of Geeky Teas This will probably be on next week’s list as well, because I am SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. You have no idea how excited. If Disneyland announced they were closing the park to everyone except me and my family for an entire week and our passes would be free, I would be almost as excited as I am about Geeky Teas opening in Magnolia Park. This place is the hub of everything that is geeky and wonderful. Doctor Who, Sherlock, delicious tea blends, table games, Doctor Who, writer’s workshops, Doctor Who, kitties, and Doctor Who. I can barely contain myself! If you never got to visit Donna and her kitties at their old location, you’re in for a treat. If you were a regular, and this place is now walking distance from your house, and it’s close to a new pizza place, and the best ice cream shop, then you are probably understanding my feelings. I AM SO EXCITED! (This is the real me. I am actually this nerdy. But I don’t even care, because at least in my head, David Tennant loves nerdy, married mothers of 2 in their mid thirties.) 2120 Magnolia Boulevard.
Classic Car Show 200ish beautifully preserved cars from before 1974, all on display in downtown Burbank. If this is your idea of a dream come true, well, aren’t you lucky? This Saturday, from 3-9 pm, classic cars will line 4 blocks of San Fernando. They’ll be accompanied by vendors and chalk artists to make the day fun for everyone! If you get hungry while you’re down there ogling all the chrome and fenders and tires (this is basically the extent of my car related vocabulary), check out one of downtown Burbank’s delicious restaurants. My personal favorite is India’s Tandoori, but you do you.
Creature Features Book Signing with Gris Grimley Gallery show and book signing for the premiere of Gris Grimley’s new book Tales From the Brothers Grimm will begin at 6 pm. 2904 W. Magnolia Blvd.
