Kelly Gulch from “Parks and Recreation”

Apr 26th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Right next door to Pat’s Topanga Grill, which I blogged about on Tuesday, is an oft-filmed-at residence known as Kelly Gulch.  Fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, had mentioned the property to me back in early December while the two of us were in the midst of our hunt for the Topanga Canyon house where Paula (Sissy Spacek) lived in Four Christmases (which I blogged about here).  Because Kelly Gulch has been featured in countless productions over the years (far more than I could ever chronicle […]



Pat’s Topanga Grill from “Medium”

Apr 24th, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

Way back in December, after stalking the Topanga Canyon house where Paula (Sissy Spacek) lived in the 2008 Yuletide comedy Four Christmases (which I blogged about here), the Grim Cheaper and I passed by Pat’s Topanga Grill and decided to pop in for some breakfast. Because the GC always likes to joke that businesses in Topanga, an area known for its bohemian lifestyle, only accept beads or wares in trade for goods rather than cash, I was a little reticent about dining at the […]



Dick Clark’s Former Malibu Home

Apr 19th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

Last June, my Grandma sent me an article about legendary television personality Dick Clark’s former Flintstones-style Malibu home, calling it “unbelievable” and asking if I could track it down and stalk it.  One look at the photographs of the cave-like structure, which had recently been put on the market, and I was in!  And while I did manage to track it down right away, it was not until a couple of weeks ago that I finally got around to stalking it.  And I just have […]



The Hideaway Saloon from “90210”

Apr 18th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

While watching the Season 5 episode of 90210 titled “Misery Loves Company” a few months back, I became just a wee bit mesmerized by the Hideaway, the biker bar where Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord) and Adrianna Tate-Duncan (Jessica Lowndes) tried to track down Naomi’s lost wedding ring.  The series’ fabulous costume designer, Kime Buzzelli, had posted pictures of the site on her Instagram page (@kbuzzy), so I commented asking for its real name (for whatever reason, I had incorrectly assumed that the name shown in […]



Malibu Hindu Temple from “Beverly Hills Ninja”

Apr 17th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks back, while doing research on the Calabasas-area mansion where the contestants live on the fabulous Bachelor parody series Burning Love (which I blogged about here), I came across a blurb in fave book Los Angeles Attractions detailing the Malibu Hindu Temple.  I had never before heard of the place, but my interest was immediately piqued when I read the words, “It was the setting for scenes in Beverly Hills Ninja.”  Um, sign me up!  So I immediately added the site to […]



The Parker Palm Springs Hotel

Apr 16th, 2013 | By | Category: This and That

This past Sunday afternoon, in the hopes of spotting some of the countless celebrities in town for the Coachella music festival, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to a few of the desert’s more upscale hotels.  And while we did not end up seeing any stars during our venture, we did discover one of the coolest places I have visited in all my years of stalking – the Parker Palm Springs hotel.  Although I wouldn’t really consider the place a filming location – it was […]



Now! Clothing from “L.A. Story”

Apr 15th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My second most-wanted location from the 1991 classic comedy L.A. Story was Now!, the ultra-hip clothing store with unisex dressing rooms where SanDeE* (my girl Sarah Jessica Parker) worked.  (My first most-wanted was, of course, the iconic freeway sign that I blogged about last Thursday.)  So I was floored to see that the locale was included in “The L.A. of L.A. Story” special feature on the movie’s 15th Anniversary Edition DVD.  In the feature, which was lensed in 2006, production designer Lawrence Miller said, “This […]



The “L.A. Story” Freeway Sign

Apr 11th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One locale that the Grim Cheaper suggested I track down a few years back – and that I have wondered about ever since – was the spot where the freeway sign from the 1991 classic comedy L.A. Story once stood.  Because it was a prop sign that was situated on a long expanse of a non-descript Southern California road, though, I figured that, short of getting ahold of a crew member, it would be a virtually impossible find.  Cut to two weeks ago when, while […]



Neptune’s Net from “The Hills”

Apr 8th, 2013 | By | Category: The Hills Filming Locations

One location that had been at the top of my To-Stalk list for a couple of years, but had, for whatever reason, remained unstalked was Neptune’s Net – an oft-filmed-at eatery and Malibu institution that was featured on one of my favorite shows of all time, The Hills, in a scene featuring none other than my girl Kristin Cavallari.  I had driven by the beachside restaurant countless times (my former boss used to live almost directly across the street from the place) and seen its […]



Shannen Doherty’s Former Mulholland Drive Rental

Apr 5th, 2013 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Another locale that I found thanks to Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites, the fabulous book written by my buddy E.J. of The Movieland Directory, was the house at 13459 Mulholland Drive that was once rented by my girl Shannen Doherty and that was also the location of her ill-fated 1993 nuptials to Ashley Hamilton, son of actor George Hamilton.  Well, believe you me, as soon as I read the words “Shannen Doherty”, I immediately added the address to my To-Stalk list and dragged the Grim […]
