Hollywood Diner from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Jul 24th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another day, another diner from a Meg Ryan movie!  Unlike the Port Café, the Wilmington, California eatery that portrayed East Coast establishments in both When Harry Met Sally . . . and A Few Good Men, today’s locale can actually be found close to the Atlantic – though its name would have you believe otherwise.  I’m talking about the Hollywood Diner in downtown Baltimore, which played the Capital Diner in the 1993 romcom Sleepless in Seattle.  To discuss the restaurant’s history, though, we have to […]



The Site of the “A Few Good Men” Crab Restaurant

Jul 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

To paraphrase Dorothy (Judy Garland) in The Wizard of Oz, our heart’s desires can often be found right in our own backyard.  Even though I’ve seen the 1939 film about a gazillion times, I failed to heed Dorothy’s advice while searching for the crab restaurant Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) took Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) to in fave movie A Few Good Men.  The eatery had long been at the top of my Must-Find List, but because I always assumed it was located […]



Baltimore’s Washington Monument from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Feb 27th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Most people know about the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., but what few realize is that there is another memorial honoring America’s first president located nearby and that it actually predates the District one.  It is a filming location, to boot – from Sleepless in Seattle, one of my favorite movies, no less!  So I just had to do some stalking of it while I was back east last September.

The original Washington Monument, which was constructed from 1815 to 1829 and was the first public […]



The Women’s Exchange from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Feb 17th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last year, I had incredible luck getting access to filming locations typically closed to the public.  While visiting New York in April, I was granted tours of three non-accessible places that I literally would have given my eye teeth to see.  Thankfully, none of my friendly tour guides collected on that offer.  (And yes, I will be blogging about those sites soon.)  One spot I was not as fortunate with was the tea room at the Women’s Exchange in Baltimore, which was featured briefly in […]



The George Peabody Library from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Feb 15th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The Grim Cheaper has never been much interested in filming locations, as I’ve mentioned many times before.  He does love stalking them with me, though, as doing so usually involves seeing historic and unique spots.  One site that absolutely bowled him over during our trip back east last September was the George Peabody Library in Baltimore.  The locale first came on my radar way back in 1993 thanks to its appearance in fave movie Sleepless in Seattle.  Once I started researching and viewing photographs of […]



Annie’s House from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Nov 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

We all have those movies – the ones that affected us so much upon first viewing, they left a lasting imprint on our hearts.  Sleepless in Seattle is one such movie for me.  As I mentioned in this 2010 post about the houseboat from the 1993 romcom, I still remember exactly where I was the first time I saw it and have my ticket stub tucked away in a box.  The film had an immediate visceral effect on me – and still does to this […]



The “You’ve Got Mail” Breakup Restaurant

Jul 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Locations from the movie You’ve Got Mail have been well-documented online on countless sites.  I chronicled quite a few of them on mine – in a December 2007 post, as well as in follow-up posts that you can read here and here.  One spot that hasn’t been mentioned anywhere and one that I was desperate to find was the café where Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Frank Navasky (Greg Kinnear) so amicably broke up in the 1998 comedy.  So I got to work in tracking […]



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 […]



The Athenian Inn from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 16th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location at the very top of my Must-Stalk-While-in-the-Pacific-Northwest list was the Athenian Inn Seafood Restaurant and Bar, which made a brief, but quite memorable appearance in the 1993 romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle.  I had been absolutely dying to stalk the restaurant for what seemed like years for a couple of reasons.  One, because as I’ve mentioned before, Sleepless has long been one of my very favorite movies.  And two, because fellow stalker Kerry had previously visited the place and told me that there […]



Jessica’s House from “Sleepless in Seattle”

Aug 10th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while visiting Seattle this past May was the home where Jonah Baldwin’s (aka Ross Malinger’s) best friend Jessica (aka Gaby Hoffman) lived in fave movie Sleepless in Seattle.  Fellow stalker David, who I had the pleasure of meeting and doing some stalking with during my brief three-day vacation, managed to track down Jessica’s house just about a week before I headed up to the Pacific Northwest.  He found the locale after posting an inquiry […]
