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 […]



Frank’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant from “Larry Crowne”

Jan 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few days before Christmas, while I was wallowing in a horrible head cold, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch the 2011 flick Larry Crowne. Neither of us had very high hopes for the movie as it had received such horrible reviews, but I am very happy to report that we both ended up loving it. So much so that we watched it again a few days later when my parents came to town to celebrate Christmas with us. The whimsical storyline […]



Larry’s Chili Dog from “The Office”

Nov 15th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Because fellow stalker Lavonna has been in town for the past few days and I have been doing some major stalking with her, today’s post is, unfortunately, going to be a short one.  Sorry about that folks, but I do promise to be back tomorrow with a regular-sized write-up.  And now, on with the post!  One location that has been on my “To-Stalk” list since way back in early February is Larry’s Chili Dog – a tiny Burbank-area hot dog stand that was featured […]



Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank from “Heat”

Sep 16th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing some stalking in the Burbank area way back in November of last year, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the Bob’s Big Boy restaurant on Riverside Drive to grab a bite to eat.  And even though the eatery has quite a vast Hollywood history, is a filming location, serves fried food (my favorite!), and is currently the oldest remaining Bob’s in the entire restaurant chain, for whatever reason in my ten-plus years of living in Los Angeles I had yet to dine […]



The Smoke House Restaurant – Where Jim and Pam Held Their Rehearsal Dinner on “The Office”

Dec 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

This past weekend, while out doing some Christmas shopping with the Grim Cheaper, the two of us found ourselves in the Burbank area absolutely ravenous.  For whatever reason, though, I could not think of a good place to eat, so the GC suggested we grab a bite at that “old Burbank restaurant across from Warner Brothers Studios”.  Because my blondness was in full force that day, I had no idea what on earth he was talking about and just about died when he pulled into […]



The Chinese Foooood Drive-Through from “Dude, Where’s My Car?”

Feb 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been begging fellow stalker Chas to find for what seems like months now is the “Chinese Foooood” restaurant from the 2000 movie Dude, Where’s My Car?  As I’ve mentioned in the past, Dude is one of my very favorite comedies and a few years back my best friend Robin and I pretty much spent every night of an entire two week period doing nothing but watching and re-watching the flick over and over again.  We simply could not get enough […]



The Smoke House

Jul 17th, 2008 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

I am a little embarrassed to admit that my latest guilty pleasure is the reality show The Two Coreys on A&E. I love it! So when Corey Haim met with Scott Carlson, the other Corey’s manager, at the Smoke House restaurant in Burbank in one of the first episodes of the season, I of course had to go stalk the place! So I dragged my boyfriend out there last week for a little Smoke House lunch! The Smoke House, which was established in […]
