Star-spotting: 25 offbeat places to impress the guests

Hollywood Walk of Fame

The turkey was delicious, the mashed potatoes rich and creamy, and that pumpkin pie -- well, nobody threw it at Grandma, even after she decided to tell everyone they needed a haircut.

So it's Friday, and you're facing the brutal truth: The relatives aren't going home any time soon. They're up and raring to go, they've already done Disneyland and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the "Law & Order" marathon can go on only so long before someone takes the law into his or her own hands. Now what?

Celebrity Gallery [Updated on Feb. 25, 2010: Sorry for the inconvenience -- because of a technical problem with our photo gallery, the link below and the photo gallery link to the right no longer work. The star-spotting list is no longer available.]

Fear not, the Ministry is here to help. 

We have a list (in the form of a photo gallery) of a few off-the-beaten-track sites celebrities have been known to frequent.

We can't guarantee you'll see George Clooney or Megan Fox during your trek, but we can offer some roll-of-the-dice spots where we've caught glimpses of the stars.

 Check it out -- and leave us a comment sharing your favorite spot to see celebrities.

I've had dinner at Katsuya Hollywood (Hollywood & Vine) when attending shows at the nearby Pantages Theater. Each time, there were plenty of celebs to rub elbows with while you dine. But I think the best part was the slew of paparazzi hanging outside snapping pics of everyone coming in and out. My friends challenged me to put on a pair of sunglasses to see if they'd wonder who I was. Didn't work, but hey...


Where is the list?

The Ivy is always good or the W hotel

Click on the photo gallery (the photo of Brad and Angelina above) and the captions beneath the photos tell where the places are.

Hey Tracy, this is Christie D'Zurilla -- I've added in a link to the list, which is actually the photo gallery. You should be able to get to it now by clicking either on the link or on the photo gallery icon. It's much more clear now; thanks for the tip.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Friday! / cdz

Where is the list?

Bad Link!

@BikeLA -- We're working on fixing that link. Check back in a bit? Thx for the FYI.
