    The address listed here is just to give you an idea, but we actually have a couple of possible locations in the Encino/Tarzana/Reseda area

    • picnic blankets if you would like;

    • your family members
    • your friends
    • your positive spirit
    • your thanks
    • etc.

    Well-behaved dogs are welcome at our outdoor venue if held on leashes and are non-disruptive.
