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 […]



Antonio’s Pizzeria – A Shannen Doherty Fave

Jan 11th, 2013 | By | Category: This and That

Way back in September 2011, while the Grim Cheaper and I were out and about doing some stalking in the San Fernando Valley area, we happened to drive past Antonio’s Pizzeria and the GC suggested that we pop in.  He had dined at Antonio’s several times in the past and remembered that the place had quite a few autographed headshots on the walls.  Um, autographed headshots?  Count me in!  So we immediately pulled the car over and, let me tell you, I just about died […]

A couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker Brandon (the very same stalker who told me about the Skyline Residence from fave movie Crazy, Stupid, Love., which I blogged about here) emailed me a list of over twenty Parks and Recreation locations that he had managed to track down.  The one locale on the list that intrigued me the most was the exterior of JJ’s Diner – the local Pawnee-area hangout, known for its superior waffles, that is featured regularly on the show.

Ironically enough, the exterior […]

As I have mentioned numerous times before on this blog, this stalker has absolutely obsessed herself silly over the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. So when I discovered, thanks to the flick’s exceedingly extensive production notes, that a couple of scenes had been filmed at the El Torito Grill in the Sherman Oaks Galleria, I immediately added the place to my “To-Stalk” list and dragged the Grim Cheaper right on out there to grab some lunch this past weekend.  And I could not have been more […]
