My Experience at Halloween Horror Nights (Hint – It Was Fabulous!)

Oct 25th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is something I have wanted to do forever.  Considering my obsession with Halloween, all things spooky and movie studios, it’s kind of a shock that I had never been.  The rather steep ticket prices – as well as the fact that everyone told me I shouldn’t bother attending unless I was also going to purchase a Front of Line pass – are what deterred me year after year.  When my best friends, Robin and Steffi, announced that they […]



A Free View of Universal Studio’s “War of the Worlds” Set!

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

Many moons ago, shortly after we first met, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, took me to a place that quickly became one of my very favorite “only in L.A.” spots –  a residential street from which the Universal Studios War of the Worlds plane crash set is visible.  And even though I always make it a point to take visiting friends to the site (which is located on the 3400 block of Blair Drive in the hills just south of Burbank), I somehow forgot to add it […]



Sid & Dexter’s Sports Bar from the “Happy Hour” episode of “The Office”

Apr 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

As I mentioned yesterday, one location that fellow stalker Lavonna was absolutely dying to stalk while she was in town last week was Sid & Dexter’s Sports Bar, the arcade/restaurant which appeared in the Season 6 episode of The Office entitled “Happy Hour”.  So, before her arrival, I called upon fellow stalker Owen for some help in tracking the place down, but, unfortunately, the two of us came up completely empty-handed.  My first instinct was that filming had taken place at one of the local […]



The Beverly Hills, 90210 Spring Dance!

Apr 28th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A few weeks ago, I happened to pop in my Beverly Hills, 90210 Season 1 DVDs to watch the “Spring Dance” episode – one of my very favorite 90210episodes of all time!  As I scrolled through the DVD menu, I realized that, unbelievably, I had yet to watch that episode accompanied by the commentary by series’ creator Darren Star.  So, I settled in with a nice Starbucks Iced Latte to listen to what Darren had to say.  And I am SO glad I did, because besides dishing juicy little tidbits of information (such […]



“The Entertainment Capital of L.A.”

Jun 9th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This weekend, for my birthday, my boyfriend surprised me with a day at Universal Studios Hollywood, which according to the entrance sign, is the “Entertainment Capital of L.A.” and is now just as expensive to visit as Disneyland – $70 per day! I must say that while I had a FABULOUS time on the Studio Tour (which lasts about 45 minutes), I was ready to leave the park by 1pm. LOL Besides the Studio Tour, Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride, and The Universal Experience […]



My Birthday Plans Go Up In Flames

Jun 1st, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For my birthday, which is coming up in two weeks, I was planning on dragging my boyfriend on the ultimate stalking adventure – a day at Universal Studios Hollywood! The last time I was at Universal was about 20 years ago and I am just dying to go on the tram ride to see the Studio’s famous back-lot, especially the Wisteria Lane set from Desperate Housewives. But Mother Nature had other plans, I guess.
This morning, while driving in Burbank to go see Sex […]
