Chasen’s Restaurant from “Enemy of the State”

Jul 28th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I grew up about as far removed from Hollywood and the world of show business as you can get.  But somehow I was familiar with Chasen’s, the West Hollywood restaurant that played stomping ground to the Tinseltown elite for close to six decades.  I’m not sure where my knowledge of the famed eatery came from, but it is likely due to the countless celebrity biographies and magazines I read as a child and/or the fact that my mom has long been something of a chili […]



The Lounge – The Site of Britney and Justin’s Dance-Off

Mar 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

If you are anything at all like me, you eagerly tuned in to watch Lifetime’s Britney Spears biopic Britney Ever After the evening of February 18th.  If not, you seriously missed out.  It was amazing – in the way that only bad Lifetime movies can be amazing.  The two-hour made-for-television flick chronicled a decade of the pop star’s life in the spotlight, from her rise to fame with the release of 1998’s . . . Baby One More Time, through her many turbulent years, ending […]



Connor and Gigi’s Date Restaurant from “He’s Just Not That Into You”

Nov 14th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Not every location from He’s Just Not That Into You was a challenge to track down.  [As I mentioned yesterday and the day before, both Janine (Jennifer Connelly) and Ben’s (Bradley Cooper) home and Conor’s (Kevin Connolly) row house listing proved to be real thorns in my side.]  Case in point, the exterior of the restaurant where Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Conor went on a date in the 2009 flick.  That site, which was actually the heavily dressed entrance to two neighboring Mount Vernon eateries […]

The Den from “Sex and the City”

Jul 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

It goes without saying that I have a tendency to obsess on things (that fact should be apparent to even my site’s most casual visitors).  Recently, I found myself obsessing over two locations featured in the L.A.-based Season 3 episode of Sex and the City titled “Sex and Another City.”  The first locale I was itching to find was the coffee shop where Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) met up with her old friend “Letterman Lew” (Sam Seder).  The second was the steakhouse where the two […]



24/7 Restaurant

Apr 28th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

All stalkers have those locations – the ones that, despite years of searching, remain on our unfound list.  Miraculously (and thanks to an insane amount of good fortune), I managed to track down one of mine recently, after over a decade of hunting for it!

During the early 2000s, I had major girl crushes on both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  (Truth be told, I still love their movies, as evidenced in this post.)   In 2003, I came across the image below in a magazine (though I […]



The Whisky a Go Go

Feb 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve never really been into music.  As I have mentioned before, if it’s not sung by Michael Bublé, Britney Spears or Michael Jackson, or was not a top ‘80s hit, chances are I haven’t heard it.  But my good friend Kim from Kentucky is a huge music buff, so when she and our good friend Lavonna came out for a visit in November, we made sure to hit up what is arguably one of the most famous rock venues in the world, the Whisky a […]



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 […]
