Hamburger Hamlet from “Parks and Recreation”

Apr 7th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Halfway through writing this post, I realized I probably should have saved it until February.  At that point, though, it was too late to start over, so I figured c’est la vie.  Here goes.  A few years ago, when I first saw the “Galentine’s Day” episode of Parks and Recreation, I recognized the restaurant featured in it as the Hamburger Hamlet in Pasadena.  I used to dine at the eatery fairly regularly when I lived in the area and immediately recalled its signature red leather […]

Chili’s Grill & Bar from “The Office”

Jun 16th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Another location that the Grim Cheaper and I stalked two weekends ago while in the San Fernando Valley was the site of the former Black Angus Steakhouse in Panorama City which masqueraded as a supposed Scranton, Pennsylvania-area Chili’s Grill & Bar in two different Season 2 episodes of fave show The Office.  I first found out about this location from fellow stalker/Office aficionado Snidley Whiplash who posted a comment about it on my site a little over a year and a half ago and, even […]

Barone’s Famous Italian Restaurant from “The Office”

Jun 14th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

One location that I have been on the lookout for for quite a few weeks now is the Italian restaurant where the Dunder Mifflin gang hosted the annual Dundies Awards ceremony in the Season 7 episode of fave show The Office titled “Michael’s Last Dundies”.  I had an inkling that the eatery was most likely located somewhere in the Van Nuys area, near Chandler Valley Center Studios where the series is lensed, so one of my first lines of attack was to do a Google […]

Darryl’s House from “The Office”

Jun 9th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

This past weekend I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the San Fernando Valley to do some stalking of the home belonging to Darryl Philbin (aka Craig Robinson) on fave show The Office. Fellow stalker Owen had actually tracked this location down well over a year ago and it is, ironically enough, located directly next-door to the abode where Meredith Palmer (aka Kate Flannery) lives on the series, which I blogged about a few weeks back. And even though I had the address […]

Paty’s Restaurant from “Desperate Housewives”

Mar 25th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

To continue on with this week’s restaurant theme, today I thought I would write a post about an eatery that the Grim Cheaper and I stalked back in January – the historic Paty’s Restaurant in Toluca Lake, which first opened for business just a little over a half century ago in 1960.  I had become a wee bit obsessed with tracking down the restaurant a few weeks beforehand while watching the Season 7 episode of Desperate Housewives titled “Assassins”.  At the very beginning of that […]

Stalking the 2011 Academy Awards

Mar 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

As I have mentioned countless times before on this blog, Oscar Weekend is, hands down, my favorite weekend of the entire year.  Hollywood just seems to come alive during Oscar Weekend and I honestly cannot get enough of it.  And this year was no different.  My Oscar stalking began early this past Saturday morning and continued on through late Sunday night and I think it is safe to say that the poor Grim Cheaper is absolutely beat.      Thankfully though, some good friends and fellow […]

Kung Pao China Bistro from “The Office”

Feb 10th, 2011 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Last Thursday night’s episode of The Office which was titled “The Search” was hands-down one of my all-time favorite episodes of the series ever!  I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!  So, when fellow stalker Owen sent me an email the following day which listed all of the locations featured in it, I just about died of excitement!  As it turns out, Owen loved the episode just about as much as I did and spent a few hours tracking down each and every locale where filming […]

Macha Theatre from “The Office”

Nov 24th, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

A few weeks ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, sent me a link to this article from local website Franklin Avenue which stated that in the Season 7 episode of The Office titled “Andy’s Play”, the Macha Theatre in West Hollywood stood in for the Scranton, Pennsylvania “Loose Screw Playhouse” where Andy Bernard (aka Ed Helms) performed in a local production of the Tony award-winning musical Sweeney Todd.  As it turns out, the author of the Franklin Avenue website, whose name is also coincidentally Mike, had actually […]

Mountain View Cemetery from “The Office”

Oct 27th, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Since my favorite holiday, Halloween, is fast approaching, I thought it would only be appropriate to devote the next few blog posts to some filming locations of a spookier nature.  So, this past Sunday morning, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, the Grim Cheaper, and I went on a joint stalking venture up to Altadena to stalk Mountain View Cemetery which appeared in the Season 4 episode of The Office titled “The Chair Model”, among countless other productions.  I first found out about this locale from my parents’ […]

First Christian Church of North Hollywood – Where Phyllis Got Married on “The Office”

Sep 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

Brace yourselves, my fellow stalkers, ‘cause today’s post is going to be a long one!  A few months back, I dragged my then-fiancé and my parents out to re-stalk the First Christian Church of North Hollywood – a location which is most commonly known as “the 7th Heaven church”, thanks to its recurring role as the Camden Family’s local parish throughout the Aaron Spelling series’ ten-year run.  Even though I never watched 7th Heaven, I stalked and blogged about the church way back in April […]
