Martin’s Tavern – Where JFK Proposed to Jackie

Nov 30th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

I consider myself to be a pretty good stalker, but my good friend Lavonna puts me to shame.  Prior to my recent trip to Washington, D.C. with the Grim Cheaper, I painstakingly researched filming locations and area landmarks to check out while we were in town and compiled an extensive list of must-see places.  So imagine my surprise when, while strolling around Georgetown, I received a text from Lavonna asking if we were planning to dine at Martin’s Tavern, the spot where, as legend has […]



Connor and Gigi’s Date Restaurant from “He’s Just Not That Into You”

Nov 14th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Not every location from He’s Just Not That Into You was a challenge to track down.  [As I mentioned yesterday and the day before, both Janine (Jennifer Connelly) and Ben’s (Bradley Cooper) home and Conor’s (Kevin Connolly) row house listing proved to be real thorns in my side.]  Case in point, the exterior of the restaurant where Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Conor went on a date in the 2009 flick.  That site, which was actually the heavily dressed entrance to two neighboring Mount Vernon eateries […]



Chez Jacques from “Mannequin”

Nov 7th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – I hate incorrect filming location information!  Case in point – while researching Mannequin locales prior to my recent trip to Philadelphia, I came across a mention online that the movie’s restaurant scene was shot at the now defunct Dewey’s Famous on Locust and 15th.  A cursory Google search told me a few things – that the eatery closed at some point in the mid-80s, later became a bank and then an outpost of […]



The “Sex and the City” McDonalds

Jul 13th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

Today’s location is a bit of a fail and a lucky twist all in one.  My mom always says to trust in the universe – and she’s right.  Things happen for a reason.  This locale – easily one of my most-wanted ever – is proof of that.  I am a pretty simple girl when it comes to most things, especially food.  I’ll take McDonald’s over a fancy restaurant any day.  So when Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov) and Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) dined at an […]



NoMo Kitchen from “The Other Woman”

May 27th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of 2014 was The Other Woman.  The romcom may have been heavily panned by critics, but I loved everything about it.  The Grim Cheaper and I saw it in theatres shortly after it premiered and then I purchased a copy as soon as it came out on DVD and have proceeded to watch it copious times since.  I’m addicted!  The flick was lensed primarily in New York and its environs and I, of course, tracked down the vast majority of its locales […]



Famous Original Ray’s Pizza from “Sex and the City”

May 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I used to visit New York at least once a year.  Prior to this recent trip, though, we had not been to Manhattan since October 2009!  Being separated from my favorite city for almost seven years was quite a hard pill to swallow.  During that time, I accumulated a ridiculously large list of must-see Manhattan filming locations that were chronicled in various files in my office and on my computer.  Because our recent trip was booked very last minute, I did […]



Two Boots To Go West Pizza from “Sex and the City”

May 13th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

There’s nothing quite like a slice of New York pizza!  Just watching characters eat a piece on TV or in a movie is enough to make me drool.  So I, of course, had long been dying to stalk the Big Apple pizzeria that appeared in the Season 6 episode of Sex and the City titled “Great Sexpectations.”

In the episode, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) head to a pizza place for a second dinner after not being fulfilled by their meal […]

Vivian’s Millennium Café

Mar 30th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have to say that while I have always been a pretty big fan of Leah Remini (hello, Saved by the Bell! Who’s the Boss?! Living Dolls!), I don’t particularly love her reality show, Leah Remini: It’s All Relative.  I was fascinated to learn through watching it, though, that Leah’s husband, mother, and stepfather run an eatery in Studio City named Vivian’s Millennium Café.  This stalker loves herself some filming locations of the restaurant variety, especially ones that have a celebrity tie-in!  But, while I […]



Shakers Family Restaurant from “Old School”

Mar 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s locale is another one of those facepalm spots.  For ages, I had been trying to track down the interior of the diner where Mitch (Owen Wilson) and the boys discussed saving their fraternity in the 2003 comedy Old School.  While I had long known that Montrose Bakery & Café (which, sadly, Yelp is reporting has closed) was used as the exterior of the restaurant, the café that portrayed the interior remained a mystery.  Then while watching the flick recently, I spotted something that I […]
