Take a ride along Route 28A in West Shokan, NY and you will see a tired old building with vines, bushes and growth crawling all over the face of the place. This is Snyder's Tavern, soon to be featured in Burbank's film.

Ignore the "Keep Out" and "No Trespassing" signs out-front, head around back and enter Snyder's Tavern, one of the coolest places you will every stumble upon.
