The Cliffhouse Restaurant from “City of Industry”

Aug 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For our first wedding anniversary this past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to the desert to spend a few days at the La Quinta Resort & Club, a historic hotel and popular celebrity hangout which I blogged about extensively last December.  The GC’s brother, who works for the Hilton Hotels chain, which owns the resort, hooked us up royally with a Friends-and-Family discount so we were able to book a suite at an amazingly low rate – a suite that turned out […]



“The Perfect Age of Rock & Roll” Premiere

Aug 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

As I mentioned yesterday, I was unable to stick around to watch much of the Parks and Recreation filming at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena last Wednesday afternoon as I had promised Miss Pinky Lovejoy, of the Thinking Pink blog, that I would meet her at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 theatre in West Hollywood that evening to do some stalking of the premiere of The Perfect Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll.  As fate would have it, this particular event turned out to be a pretty fortuitous one […]



Le Petit Bistro from “90210”

Aug 5th, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A couple of Saturday nights ago, the Grim Cheaper and I found ourselves in West Hollywood, tired and hungry after a long day of stalking.  We happened to come across an absolutely adorable little French restaurant named Le Petit Bistro and decided to pop in for a bite to eat.  Now, usually I do not like to frequent eateries that are not mentioned on my (very long and ever-growing) “To Stalk” list, but because the place was so darn cute I made an out-of-character exception.  […]



The Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells

Aug 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

One Palm-Springs-area hotel that I have long wanted to vacation at – not because it is a filming location, but because it is just simply beautiful – is the Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells.  The Grim Cheaper and I ate dinner at the resort once upon a time many years back and I have been enamored of the place ever since.  So for our recent Coachella Valley getaway two weekends ago, I begged the GC to book us a room there.  And even […]



The Cree Estate in Cathedral City

Aug 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

While doing research on Las-Vegas-Dunes-Hotel-owner Charlie “Kewpie” Rich’s former Palm Springs home, which I blogged about last Tuesday, I came across some information about another Coachella Valley location where my girl Jen Aniston and former-husband Brad Pitt had once vacationed.  The property is known as the historic Cree Estate in Cathedral City and it is apparently a big-time celebrity hot-spot and wedding venue.  According to this FASCINATING January 2004 Palm Springs Life article, which chronicles the adventures of area location scout Sylvia Schmitt who manages […]



Lucky Strike Lanes in Hollywood

Jul 13th, 2011 | By | Category: The Hills Filming Locations

Two weekends ago, while doing some stalking in the Hollywood area, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the Hollywood & Highland Shopping Center to grab a quick drink at Lucky Strike Lanes, an oft-used filming location and celebrity hot-spot.  While I had first heard about the bowling alley/lounge when it originally opened eight years ago and knew of its appearance on numerous reality series, for whatever reason I did not have much interest in stalking the place.  Then, a couple of months ago, fellow […]



Il Cielo

Jun 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, The Hills Filming Locations

Looking at wedding venues is so darn fun that, I swear, I think I would be happy just remaining engaged forever.  It could be my full time job.  What do you do?  Oh, I’m engaged – full time!  🙂  LOL  On Tuesday, my wedding venue expedition led my mom and me to a little restaurant in Beverly Hills named Il Cielo.    And I have to say that the place was downright amazing!!!  So much so that it’s at the very top of my very narrowed down list of possible […]
