Musso and Frank Grill from “Sex and the City”

Jun 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I deserve a facepalm for today’s location!  For ages I had been trying to track down the Los Angeles steakhouse where Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) dined with “Letterman Lew” (Sam Seder) in the Season 3 episode of Sex and the City titled “Sex and Another City.”  Because the episode had been filmed over 15 years ago, I figured the restaurant was most likely no longer in existence, but still spent quite a lot of time searching for it regardless.  Then in April, I had a […]

The Neon Museum Las Vegas

Jun 24th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I was able to check two major items off of my Stalking Bucket List while I was in Sin City this past March.  First was seeing Britney Spears’ “ . . . Baby One More Time” costume at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  Second was touring the Neon Museum Las Vegas.  Both experiences definitely lived up to the hype.

I first learned about the Neon Museum – aka the Neon Boneyard, aka the Neon Graveyard – years ago while watching the 1989 New Kids on […]

A Weeklong Visit to L.A. with Friends!

Jun 12th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I am heading to L.A. today to spend the next week with my friends Kim and Katie who are visiting from Kentucky (that’s Kim above during a visit last November).  We have a ton of fun stalking activities planned (you can follow along on Instagram) that will not leave any time for blogging, so I will be taking the upcoming week off.  I will be back next Tuesday or Wednesday with a whole new post, though.  I hope all of my fellow stalkers have a […]

Dinah’s Family Restaurant from “Modern Family”

Jun 5th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

While I primarily love stalking filming locations of the residential variety, restaurants come in at a close second.  So when my friend Owen, of the When Write Is Blog, recently told me about Dinah’s Family Restaurant, a historic Westchester eatery that was featured in a Season 3 episode of Modern Family, I ran right out to stalk it – and grab a bite to eat.

Dinah’s Family Restaurant was originally established in 1959 by the Ernst family.

It is still owned by the same family today.  Mario […]

The California Bank Building from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Jun 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since we’re on the subject of Girls Just Want to Have Fun, I thought I would blog about another locale from the movie that I recently hit up – downtown L.A.’s California Bank Building, which masked as the Dance TV (aka DTV) studio in the 1985 flick.  A couple of years back, Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, managed to track down the location via a helpful crewmember, but because nothing about the structure matched up to what was shown onscreen, I was never sold on […]
