Movie Locations in the Great Outdoors

Jul 31st, 2015 | By | Category: Discover Los Angeles Articles

Be sure to check out my latest post for Discover Los Angeles, about L.A. movie locations that celebrate the great outdoors.



Wonderland from “Scandal”

Jul 28th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

I realize this is a complete about-face, but I am so over Scandal!  I know, I know – my love for the series was incredibly short-lived.  The Grim Cheaper and I just finished watching Season 4, though, and both felt that it went downhill fast.  The last few episodes proved so ridiculous that I don’t think we’ll be watching Season 5 when it starts airing in September.  Case in point – and warning, there be spoilers ahead! – one of the series’ main storylines centers […]



The White House Gates from “Scandal”

Jul 24th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

My life as of late seems to be absorbed by Scandal.  As I mentioned last week, the Grim Cheaper and I have recently become addicted to the ABC series.  Besides watching it during pretty much every free waking moment, I have also been furiously researching the show’s filming locations.  While set in Washington, D.C., Scandal is lensed in Los Angeles.  The crew does some seriously amazing work to hide that fact, though.  Gary, from the Seeing Stars website, uncovered a few key Season 1 locales […]

The Complete “Clueless” Guide to L.A.

Jul 20th, 2015 | By | Category: Discover Los Angeles Articles

I could NOT be more excited about my latest Discover Los Angeles article.  In fact, it might be my favorite blog post that I have ever written!  I present to you The Ultimate (and Complete!) Guide to Clueless Movie Locations in Los Angeles: Part I and Part II.  This one was truly a labor of love and took me countless hours of research to put together, but I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun stalking!  I cannot tell you the number of emails I […]



Charles Mulligan’s Steakhouse from “Parks and Recreation”

Jul 17th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

This past March I wrote The Complete Parks and Recreation Guide to Los Angeles for L.A. magazine.  At the time of the posting, though, I had yet to visit every location featured on the list.  The most glaring omission from my stalking profile was Whiskey Bend, the Burbank bar that masqueraded as Charles Mulligan’s Steakhouse, aka Ron Swanson’s (Nick Offerman) favorite restaurant, on the NBC series.  I finally made it over there last month while my friends Kim and Katie were in town visiting from […]



New “L.A.” Mag Post – About “Tangerine”

Be sure to read today’s post for L.A.mag.com, about the new movie Tangerine.  My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.



The “Black-ish” House

Jul 15th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

My good friend/fellow stalker Lavonna is obsessed with the show Black-ish.  Von was supposed to fly out to L.A. for a visit along with our friends Kim and Katie this past June, but ended up not being able to.  So in honor of her, during our trip we all went to stalk the home where the Johnson family – Dre (Anthony Anderson), Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), Zoey (Yara Shahidi), Andre (Marcus Scribner), Jack (Miles Brown) and Diane (Marsai Martin) – lives on the ABC series.

I […]



That Pink Door

Jul 14th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I have yet to really hop aboard the Pinterest bandwagon, but I know I’m in the minority on that one.  Those who are Pinterest-philes are most definitely familiar with what has come to be known as “That Pink Door.”  That Pink Door is actually the brightly-hued front door of a residence in the Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs.  The home also pops up regularly on Instagram (do a search for #thatpinkdoor and you’ll be inundated with blush-colored images) as well as on countless fashion […]



The Den from “Sex and the City”

Jul 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

It goes without saying that I have a tendency to obsess on things (that fact should be apparent to even my site’s most casual visitors).  Recently, I found myself obsessing over two locations featured in the L.A.-based Season 3 episode of Sex and the City titled “Sex and Another City.”  The first locale I was itching to find was the coffee shop where Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) met up with her old friend “Letterman Lew” (Sam Seder).  The second was the steakhouse where the two […]
