Draining the bowl will do better than just running it until it quits, but sometimes you can drain the bowl after stopping the engine with it warm, and then get it to restart for a few seconds when which would pull out the rest of the fuel in the passages.
Whatever way you do it, try to use pure gas with no ethanol if you can get some, for the last time you run it.
For long term storage, slip ring corrosion is probably a bigger issue, as it is a very expensive repair compared to a new carb. Storing in a climate controlled area with low humidity and temp swings will help a lot. You might even put it in an engine bag, like they do rebuilt engines, with some dessicant, and seal it up.
