Art’s Delicatessen & Restaurant from “Beverly Hills, 90210: Exposed!”

Feb 14th, 2018 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

They say you should always listen to your mother.  It’s good advice.  Case in point – about a decade ago, while stalking in Studio City, my mom, my dad, the Grim Cheaper and I passed by Art’s Delicatessen & Restaurant on Ventura Boulevard and decided to pop in for a bite.  During our meal, my mom encouraged me to take photos of the place as she figured it had likely been utilized for filming at some point or had a celebrity connection.  I spent the […]



Bookstar from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Feb 9th, 2018 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

I have certainly been revisiting the past lately, as evidenced here, here, and here.  Maybe it has something to do with nostalgia hitting me after our recent move.  Whatever the reason, here I am yet again with yet another redux.  Today’s locale is a favorite, one that I originally covered in May 2008 – Bookstar, a former-theatre-turned-Barnes-&-Noble in Studio City.  Back in 1991, when the venue was operating as Mann’s Studio Theatre, Dylan McKay (Luke Perry) took Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty) there for their first […]



SPARCinLA from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Jan 22nd, 2018 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I are moving in a couple of days (we bought a house out here in the desert – our first house!) and while packing last week I informed him that as soon as we got settled we would be taking a trip to Los Angeles as I “have nothing to blog about.”  His response?  “Yeah, just like you have nothing in your closet to wear!”  He’s right, of course.  My stalking backlog is ridiculously long.  There are locales in my stockpile […]



The SmokeHouse Restaurant from “Lucifer”

Jan 19th, 2018 | By | Category: TV Locations

Hollywood loves a redux.  So do I, apparently, because here I am yet again with yet another location re-do!  (For those who missed it, I penned a second post on the Simpson family home from She’s Out of Control last week.)  Today’s blog is actually my third go-around with this particular spot (you can read my first two blurbs on it here and here), but when I saw the legendary SmokeHouse restaurant pop up in a rather lengthy segment of the Season 3 episode of […]



Barnsdall Art Park from “Big Little Lies”

Jan 17th, 2018 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Grim Cheaper is easily the most creative gift-giver I know.  Not only does he find incredibly thoughtful presents, but he always comes up with highly unique ways of presenting them.  I have only ever managed to match his ingenuity on rare occasions – one being Valentine’s Day 2011 when I created a scavenger hunt around Los Angeles during which he solved clues that disclosed GPS coordinates of spots I thought he would enjoy visiting.  The hunt included stops at Grub Restaurant, LACMA, Boardner’s of […]



Emerson College Los Angeles from “Scandal”

Jan 12th, 2018 | By | Category: TV Locations

Despite the fact that I live in Palm Springs, I tend to think of myself as having my finger on the pulse of L.A.  But when penning A Film Lover’s Guide to Tomorrow’s Movie Location Stars for Los Angeles magazine in 2015, I overlooked two key spots, which I hope speaks more to the vast landscape of the city than it does to my lack of awareness.  Though I noted Wilshire Grand Center, Hollenbeck Community Police Station, 8500, Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, and […]



Rise N Grind from “Veep”

Jan 8th, 2018 | By | Category: TV Locations, Uncategorized

I have never been one for New Year’s resolutions.  That being said, in 2018 I am hoping to regularly exercise, be kinder (to myself and others), drink more water and less champagne, and cut down on my daily latte regimen.  The last one is going to be much easier said than done.  No matter what, though, I will definitely not be cutting down on my stalking of coffee shops – that I can promise.  One café that I recently visited was Hollywood’s Rise N Grind, […]



Home Restaurant from “Raines”

Jan 3rd, 2018 | By | Category: TV Locations

Every once in a while a show comes along that immediately hooks me.  Such was the case with Raines, an extremely short-lived police procedural boasting a scant seven-episode run.  I was unaware of the NBC series at the time of its original airing in March 2007.  In fact, I only learned of it this past October while doing research for my post on High Tower, the iconic Hollywood Hills campanile from Dead Again that, as I learned via IMDB, also had a prominent role in […]



The Site of Sanford and Son Salvage from “Sanford and Son”

Dec 13th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

There’s pretty much nothing I relish more than diving into the nitty-gritty when proving or disproving a location – especially if that location is from an old production and/or is no longer in existence.  I love the challenge of it.  I recently had the pleasure of delving into one such case thanks to a fellow stalker named Dale who emailed me in October to ask if I had any information on Sanford and Son Salvage from Sanford and Son.  I never watched the hit series, […]



Arrowhead Pine Rose Cabins from “Veep”

Dec 6th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I often find myself thinking about how fabulous it would be if Instagram had existed back when Beverly Hills, 90210 was still on the air.  One of my most-loved down-time activities is perusing the feed of actors currently starring on shows I watch to see the various behind-the-scenes stories and photos they post.  Not only do the images provide a rare peek at the intimate goings-on of the production of a television series, but they’re an incredible source of filming location information.  Like I said, […]
