Seattle’s Fairmont Olympic Hotel

Aug 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location that I stalked back in May while visiting the Pacific Northwest was the famous Fairmont Olympic Hotel located in Downtown Seattle.  The Olympic is a landmark Seattle building that has appeared in countless productions over the years and has played host to dozens of celebrities in its almost ninety-year history, so there was no way I was going to miss stalking it while visiting the area!  The hotel, which first opened on December 6, 1924, was built on the former site of the […]



Drew Barrymore’s Childhood Home

Aug 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

 
A few weeks ago, Drew Barrymore aficionado Ashley, from The Drewseum website, asked me and fellow stalker Owen for some help in tracking down the home where the young E.T. star lived from 1984 through 1988.  Over the years, Ashley had accumulated a few clues as to the property’s location, mostly from Drew’s autobiography Little Girl Lost, which was published in 1990.  In the book, co-author Todd Gold describes the house as “a lovely two-bedroom ranch-style home in Sherman Oaks, a comfortable upper-class neighborhood in […]



Honeymooning in Cabo!

Aug 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

     
Well, as you can see by the above photograph, I did it!  I am currently a married woman!  The Grim Cheaper and I finally tied the knot – after what amounted to close to ten years of dating! – this past Saturday evening in Malibu.  Yay!  And one of the Grim Cheaper’s very first duties as my husband was to recreate the famous photograph taken of Brad and Jen during their July 2000 nuptials.  Love it!    

We are heading to Cabo San Lucas for our honeymoon later this afternoon, […]



Franklin Library from “Beautiful Girls”

Aug 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The final Beautiful Girls filming location that I stalked while visiting Minnesota this past May was the library where Tommy “Birdman” Rowland (aka Matt Dillon) met up with his married girlfriend Darian Smalls (aka Lauren Holly) and her daughter, Kristen (aka Sarah Katz), towards the end of the flick.  I found this location, once again, thanks to fellow stalker Owen and his Beautiful Girls master locations list.  And even though it was only featured in a very brief scene in the movie, for whatever reason, […]



Nate ‘n Al’s Delicatessen

Aug 18th, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

One location that I have been wanting to stalk for quite some time now is the historic Nate ‘n Al Delicatessen in Beverly Hills, but because I don’t get out to that area very often, the restaurant had remained an unchecked item on my extremely long “To-Stalk” list for over a year.  Until a couple of weeks ago, that is, when I finally dragged my fiancé to grab a bite to eat there after we had stalked Will Rogers Memorial Park from 90210, which is […]



Holly’s Nashua House from “The Office”

Aug 17th, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Another location from The Office that I stalked recently was the supposed Nashua, New Hampshire-area house that Holly Flax moved into in the Season 5 episode titled “Employee Transfer”.  I found this location, yet again, thanks to fellow stalker Owen who went on a mission a while back to try to track down as many Office locales as possible.  So, thank you, Owen!  Ironically enough, though, I actually didn’t need his help on this one because as soon as I first saw the “Employee Transfer” […]



The Athenian Inn from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 16th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location at the very top of my Must-Stalk-While-in-the-Pacific-Northwest list was the Athenian Inn Seafood Restaurant and Bar, which made a brief, but quite memorable appearance in the 1993 romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle.  I had been absolutely dying to stalk the restaurant for what seemed like years for a couple of reasons.  One, because as I’ve mentioned before, Sleepless has long been one of my very favorite movies.  And two, because fellow stalker Kerry had previously visited the place and told me that there […]



The Bistro Garden

Aug 12th, 2010 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

 
A couple of weeks ago, while searching online for different filming locations from The Office, I came across some information about an area restaurant which not only appeared in The Office, but in countless other productions over the years, as well – the Bistro Garden in Studio City.  So, I, of course, dragged the Grim Cheaper right out to stalk it that very weekend!  And I think it is safe to say that we both pretty much fell in love with the place immediately upon […]



The “Date Night” House

Aug 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last night, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch the movie Date Night which FINALLY came out on DVD this week.  We somehow missed seeing the flick in theatres when it first came out in April and I have been not-so-patiently waiting for it to be released on DVD ever since.  Especially since Mike, from MovieShotsLA, tracked down the house which belonged to Phil and Claire Foster (played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey, respectively) in it over four months ago.  Because I […]



Jessica’s House from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 10th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while visiting Seattle this past May was the home where Jonah Baldwin’s (aka Ross Malinger’s) best friend Jessica (aka Gaby Hoffman) lived in fave movie Sleepless in Seattle.  Fellow stalker David, who I had the pleasure of meeting and doing some stalking with during my brief three-day vacation, managed to track down Jessica’s house just about a week before I headed up to the Pacific Northwest.  He found the locale after posting an inquiry […]
