The Bel Age Hotel from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Feb 9th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Ah, change.  It’s one of my least favorite things, especially when it comes to filming locations.  So I was devastated when the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel, one of the most prominent locations from Beverly Hills, 90210, closed in 2007 to undergo a huge renovation and was renamed The London West Hollywood.  I had been to the Bel Age prior to its closure, but failed to take any photographs of the place.  I was so incredibly excited to be there that the visit is seared into […]

Alfred Coffee & Kitchen

Nov 24th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

At one point last year, I mentioned that I would occasionally be blogging about stalk-worthy locales that do not have a film connection.  Today’s post chronicles one of those places.  A few months ago, fellow stalkers Becky and Anushika told me about Alfred Coffee & Kitchen, a quaint West Hollywood café that they thought I would adore.  They were right.  (To be fair, though, it was a pretty sure bet – I’ve yet to meet a coffee shop I didn’t like.  )  When I first […]

Villapiano’s from “That Thing You Do!”

Jan 27th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One That Thing You Do! location that I had been trying to track down for what seemed like ages was the red-boothed Italian restaurant that stood in for Villapiano’s, the “spaghetti place out by the airport,” in the 1996 flick.  Thankfully, a couple of months ago, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, tracked down and put me in touch with one of the movie’s crew members who informed me that the eatery I was searching for was the now-defunct Palomino Club […]

Shooters Bar & Grill from “Melrose Place”

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

One location that had been on my “To Stalk” list pretty much ever since I first moved to Southern California over twelve years ago was Fellini’s “Old Country” Italian restaurant – the Hollywood-area eatery that stood in for Shooters Bar & Grill on the 1992 Beverly Hills, 90210-spinoff Melrose Place.  And while I was never a huge fan of the series (I think I was a bit too young for it as most of the storylines went right over my head), I did watch the […]

Los Angeles County Museum of Art from “My So-Called Life”

Feb 17th, 2011 | By | Category: My So-Called Life Filming Locations

Since I spend the majority of my weekends dragging the Grim Cheaper out on various stalking adventures, this past Saturday, in honor of our first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple, I decided to create a scavenger hunt for him based on his many likes and hobbies.  I do have to admit that while most of our destinations were places that I had little to no interest in visiting, the hunt was not entirely an un-selfish endeavor on my part.  A few of our […]

SpeedZone from “Guess Who”

Jan 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Movie Locations

This past New Year’s, my fiancé’s entire family – including his two school-age nephews – came to town to watch the Rose Parade.  Before their arrival, he scoured the internet to find some fun places in the L.A. area to take the kids after the festivities were over.  One of the ideas he came up with was to spend a few hours at SpeedZone in the City of Industry – an amusement park of sorts which features an array of kid-friendly fun such as go-kart […]

Melrose (aka Greenwood) Place

Jan 25th, 2008 | By | Category: TV Locations

The apartment building used as the exterior of the fictional apartment complex “Melrose Place” on the TV show of the same name cannot actually be found on, or anywhere near, the real Melrose Avenue. In real life, the complex is called the “El Pueblo Apartments” and is located on Greenwood Place in Los Feliz, a short distance from Hollywood.
This location I found in my fave stalking book “The Ultimate Hollywood Tour Book“, which described the “El Pueblo” as “dumpy” in person. However, I was […]
