“Parks and Recreation” Filming at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena

Aug 9th, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last Wednesday, while on my morning walk to Starbucks, I happened to pass by fave bookstore Vroman’s and just about fell over when I noticed an entire slew of production trucks parked out front.  I, of course, immediately sought out one of the crew members to ask what was being filmed and he told me that it was an episode of Parks and Recreation.  And even though I had never actually seen the NBC series before, I decided to stick around to watch the filming […]



The Jennifer Grant “Good Stuff” Book Signing

Jun 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Back on Thursday, May 26th (I told you I am way behind in my reporting! ), Vroman’s Bookstore welcomed Jennifer Grant for a signing and discussion of her new book Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant which chronicles the actress’ experiences being raised by one of the most iconic movie stars of all time.  And while most of the people attending the event were fans of Jennifer’s famous father, I have been a long-time fan of Jennifer herself, ever since she appeared […]



Alicia Silverstone’s “The Kind Diet” Book Signing

Mar 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

 
This past Wednesday night I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to my favorite local bookstore, Vroman’s (which coincidentally just appeared in the most recent episode of Modern Family, but more on that later), to attend the book signing and discussion for Alicia Silverstone’s new lifestyle tome The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet.  Even though I am not in any way, shape, or form a vegan, I was absolutely DYING to attend the book signing because, as […]



The Tori Spelling “uncharted terriTORI” Book Signing

Jul 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

This past Monday night, former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori Spelling made an appearance at my favorite bookstore Vroman’s to do a signing of her most recent memoir, uncharted terriTORI.  And even though I live very close to Vroman’s, I am sad to say that I almost didn’t attend the event.  The sad truth is that I have yet to catch up on all of my wedding planning duties, or even my emails for that matter, ever since returning home from the Mayo Clinic with […]



The Justin Halpern “Sh*t My Dad Says” Book Signing

May 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

 
A few weeks ago, my best friend Kylee made an off the cuff remark to me about “Sh*t My Dad Says”, the Twitter account that is currently taking the internet world by storm.  And even though the site currently boasts more followers than Lauren Conrad’s, at the time I had never actually heard of it.  This shocked Kylee to no end and she commanded me to sign onto the internet immediately to check the page out.  Well, let me tell you, I absolutely loved what […]



Raquel Welch’s “Beyond The Cleavage” Book Signing

Apr 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Ever since my mom found out that actress and 1960’s/1970’s sex symbol Raquel Welch was scheduled to do a book signing for her new tome Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena on the evening of April 22nd, she became absolutely obsessed with attending the event.  And, even though I wasn’t exactly sure who Raquel Welch was (at first I actually thought she was one of the original Charlie’s Angels!), I agreed to accompany her.  Unfortunately though, because my father was in the […]



My Coffee With Andre – Agassi, That Is!

Nov 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

A few years back, an email entitled “You Know You’re From Los Angeles When . . . “ which was comprised of a list of “Only in L.A.” scenarios circled the World Wide Web.   My personal favorite item on the list was number 28 which stated, “The guy at 8:30 in the morning at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney actually IS George Clooney”.  LOVE IT!  Well, Thursday morning, I had my very own “Only in L.A.” moment at […]



On Location With “Peep World”!

Apr 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Yesterday, while heading to fave bookstore Vroman’s to pick up a stalking book  I had special ordered, I happened upon a small crew filming on the sidewalk at the store’s entrance.  One of the policemen on duty was extremely nice and told me that the movie being filmed was a low-budget indie entitled Peep World.    The flick actually has a great cast including Sarah Silverman, Michael C. Hall (who plays Dexter on the Showtime series of the same name), and The Office’s  Rainn Wilson, but unfortunately none […]



Sex In My City

Sep 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

To promote her new book, One Fifth Avenue, Sex and the City author and creator Candace Bushnell made an appearance at my fave bookstore, Vroman’s, in Pasadena last night. I could not have been more excited for this event!!! I was absolutely dying to see the real life Carrie Bradshaw in person. For those not in the know, much like her on-screen alter-ego, in real life Candace Bushnell authored a column entitled Sex and the City which appeared weekly in the New York Observer newspaper […]
