Fig & Olive Restaurant from the 2012 “Matthew’s Day Off” Honda CR-V Super Bowl Commercial

Apr 3rd, 2012 | By | Category: This and That

Ever since I first saw the ingenious “Matthew’s Day Off” Honda CR-V commercial that premiered during the 2012 Super Bowl on February 6th, I have been absolutely itching to track down the restaurant that appeared in it.  Especially since, a few weeks beforehand, I had stalked and blogged about L’Orangerie, the eatery that stood in for Chez Quis in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the 1986 movie upon which the two-minute-and-twenty-five-second television spot was based.

Thankfully, this location was a fairly easy find.  While watching the ad, […]



L’Orangerie – aka Chez Quis Restaurant from "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off"

Jan 12th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in 2010, this stalker became just a wee-bit obsessed with tracking down the restaurant interior which was used as the fictional Chez Quis French eatery in the iconic 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  I knew from listening to director John Hughes’ DVD commentary that the restaurant was somewhere in the Los Angeles area, but try as I might, I just could not seem to locate it.  Because I feared that the place had most likely long since closed down and, as such, any […]



Halloween 2010 at the Hotel Santa Barbara

Nov 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

As I mentioned last week, this past Saturday morning the Grim Cheaper and I headed up north to the Central Coast of California to spend Halloween with our good friends who live in Santa Barbara, or the “American Riviera” as the seaside city is colloquially known.  For those who have never visited the area during Halloween, I must say that there is just simply no place better to spend the holiday.  For whatever, Santa Barbara has got some MAJOR Halloween spirit.  Downtown State Street turns […]



Cameron Frye’s House

Last Wednesday morning I almost fell out of my chair as I opened up my email account and saw an AOL news headline screaming out at me “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off   House For Sale!”  At first, I thought the article was talking about the Long Beach area home that stood in for Ferris’ in the film.  But, in reality, it is the ultra-modern glass and steel abode that belonged to Ferris’ best pal Cameron Frye in the film that just recently went on the market.  And, while I don’t usually like to blog about places that I have […]



The “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” House

Jun 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has long been one of my favorite movies. So I was completely floored when I found out that Ferris’ house from the movie was located in Southern California! Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was filmed almost entirely on location in Chicago, Illinois, but for some reason producers chose a house on the West Coast, in Long Beach, California, to use as the Bueller family home. As soon as I found the address, I immediately dragged my boyfriend (on his birthday, no […]
