Liz’s House from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Apr 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There are two kinds of people in this world – those who can watch movies over and over and over again and those who cannot.  I am in the former category.  During my teens and twenties, my parents owned a condominium in Hawaii.  We would vacation there every summer, along with other families who owned units in the same community.  Our condo was the kids’ hang-out spot (we had a VCR and large movie library) and, for reasons that no longer remain known to me, […]



24/7 Restaurant

Apr 28th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

All stalkers have those locations – the ones that, despite years of searching, remain on our unfound list.  Miraculously (and thanks to an insane amount of good fortune), I managed to track down one of mine recently, after over a decade of hunting for it!

During the early 2000s, I had major girl crushes on both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  (Truth be told, I still love their movies, as evidenced in this post.)   In 2003, I came across the image below in a magazine (though I […]

Hatfield’s Restaurant from “Chef”

Apr 21st, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s location is a bit of a bummer, I’m afraid.  Ever since seeing the movie Chef (one of my favorites of 2014), I was itching to stalk Hatfield’s restaurant, which appeared quite extensively throughout the flick.  So when I discovered that it had recently closed, I was devastated.  But I ventured on over to see the exterior of it in person, nonetheless, while I was in L.A. a few weeks ago.

Hatfield’s restaurant was established by Karen and Quinn Hatfield in 2006.  The fine dining eatery […]



ARIA Resort & Casino “The Bachelor”

Apr 20th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Each season, The Bachelor reality series whisks its stars and contestants to various exotic, high-end locales.  During Brad Womack’s second stint as The Bachelor, he and the ladies (including my girl Emily Maynard) headed to the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.  Prior to last month, I had not been to Sin City in over a decade (that’s like a lifetime in Vegas years!), long before the ARIA had been built, and I was absolutely itching to stalk the place.  So I dragged the […]

A Visit with My Grandma

Apr 13th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

My grandma is currently in town for a visit, so I will probably not be able to post a new column until later in the week as I will be spending time with her.  I hope all of my fellow stalkers have a great few days!



18th Street Coffee House from “Modern Family”

Apr 10th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I have said countless times before on this blog, there’s pretty much nothing I love more than a filming location that serves coffee.  So I thought stalking the 18th Street Coffee House in Santa Monica, which was featured in the Season 6 episode of Modern Family titled “Rash Decisions,” would be a pleasant experience.  I was wrong.  But more on that in a bit.

In “Rash Decisions,” Alex Dunphy (Ariel Winter) attends a college interview for Princeton at a local café.  While there, she realizes […]
