A Restaurant In Burbank Remains Open Amid Outdoor Dining Ban

Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill defiantly remains open as a last resort.

Like many businesses in the hospitality industry, Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill, has been hit hard by the restrictions and the new ban on outdoor dining has been yet another blow. With nowhere to turn and bills to pay, the owner of this popular sports bar has called upon patrons to join a daily protest in the restaurant’s back patio—one of the few activities allowed with members outside of immediate households. 

The establishment sent out a Facebook post that read, “Patriots- Please join us at Tinhorn Flats Tomorrow, Thursday, for a Peaceful Protest against the Tyrannical Mandates and Closures.” Adding, “Protest starts 12 noon sharp on our back patio. Please feel free to bring signs. Protest will continue every day from 12 – 9pm except Mondays where we will all rest so we can protest again Tuesday through Sunday.”

Owner Baret Lepejian will keep the swinging saloon doors open and will presumably continue to serve customers from noon to 9 p.m. until the place is shut down or the operating license is revoked. 

According to Eyewitness News, the Burbank Police Department says it will defer enforcement to the L.A. County Department of Public Health and will take action if it’s required to.
Many businesses owners grappling with the mandates and with a lack of funding available, some have managed to successfully raise funds through community donations.
Meanwhile, Southern California is seeing a record number of deaths and L.A. County “continues to break all-time records,” according to the Public Health Department’s latest announcement.
