The Grill on the Alley from “The Holiday”

Dec 16th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend, while wandering through my local Target with the Grim Cheaper, I happened to spot a DVD of fave movie The Holiday on sale for $3.99!  When I saw that the special features included a commentary with director Nancy Meyers and a making-of featurette, I just about flipped my lid and immediately snapped the DVD up.  (Though I have seen The Holiday more times than I can count, because I own it on iTunes, I had never seen any of the special features.)  […]



The Viper Room from “Entourage”

Jun 25th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

Once I found the location of Zebra tattoo parlor, on which Jeremy Piven’s name was displayed during the opening credits of Entourage each week (I blogged about it here), I just had to track down the spot where cutie Jerry Ferrara’s moniker was showcased.  Upon finally doing so, I was a bit embarrassed that I had not recognized the place beforehand, being that it is one of Hollywood’s most well-known landmarks – The Viper Room in West Hollywood.

Although arguably most famous for the fact that […]



and Jeremy Piven Nightclub from “Arrested Development”

Jun 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

Thanks to Netflix streaming and the boredom of summer reruns, I just recently started watching Arrested Development.  And, let me tell you, I am hooked!  My interest in the show was first piqued when I randomly came across this Wikia article about a fictitious nightclub on the series named “and Jeremy Piven.”

I just about died laughing upon seeing a screen capture of the place (pictured below) and my first thought was, “How am I not watching this show?”  So I quickly remedied the situation and, […]



Fat Sal’s Deli – Jerry Ferrara’s Restaurant

Jun 17th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

I’m back, people!  To say that last week was a blast would be an understatement.  It was honestly one of the best weeks of my life and a really special birthday celebration.  There was never a dull moment and I am officially exhausted (and now have a cold), but it was well worth it!  A huge THANK YOU to the Grim Cheaper and my friends Lavonna, Kim, Katie and Kaylee for making it all happen.  One of our many adventures (and I will be blogging […]



The Redbury Hotel from “Entourage”

Feb 16th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last July, while doing some cyber-stalking, I came across an article on the USA TODAY Travel website about the numerous Southern California hotels and restaurants featured in the eighth and final season of the hit television series Entourage.  One of the spots mentioned in the blurb was Tinseltown’s newly-opened The Redbury Hotel, which appeared in the episode titled “The Big Bang”, and, thanks to its dark crimson walls, unique architecture and old Hollywood vibe, I immediately became enamored of the place.  I, of course, added […]



Café-Club Fais Do-Do from “Crossroads”

Feb 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I blogged about way back in March of 2009 and had been dying to re-stalk ever since – in order to snap some interior pictures – was Café-Club Fais Do-Do, the supposed New-Orleans-area karaoke bar that appeared in the 2002 movie Crossroads.  (For those who did not catch my original post on the place, in the Spring of 2001 I was an extra in Crossroads and spent a full three days filming at the Fais Do-Do – a magical experience that I […]



Villa Sophia from the Final Episode of “Entourage”

Jan 27th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

A couple of weeks ago, while the Grim Cheaper and I were out doing some stalking in the Hollywood area, I received an email from Constantine Vlahos, the owner of a Los Feliz mansion named Villa Sophia.  Constantine was writing to let me know that his home had been featured in the final episode of Entourage and that I might be interested in stalking it.  Now, I just have to say here that that was most definitely a first – a homeowner not only seeking […]



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 […]



Barneys New York from “Just Go With It”

Jul 7th, 2011 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations

This past Friday night, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch Just Go With It on DVD and I have to say that I loved the flick even more the second time around!  I honestly think it is my girl Jen’s best movie yet!  Although I did seriously love me some Office Space, but I digress.  So while the GC and I were in the area doing some stalking last Sunday afternoon, I just had to drag him out to stalk the Women’s […]



The Little Door Restaurant from “Monster-in-Law”

Feb 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One restaurant that I have long wanted to stalk, but could just never seem to find was the adorable little outdoor courtyard spot where Kevin Fields (aka Michael Vartan), his mother, Viola Fields (aka Jane Fonda), and his new fiancé, Charlie Cantilini (aka Jennifer Lopez), lunched towards the end of the 2005 romantic comedy Monster-in-Law.  Then, as fate would have it, back in September while trying to track down the French restaurant where Brenda Walsh (aka my girl Shannen Doherty) and Donna Martin (aka Tori […]
