    A “Mighty Ducks” Meet and Greet

    WHAT Autograph signing and VIP interview panel WHERE Holiday Inn, Mansfield, MA WHEN April 15, 2018 Anyone who knows me even moderately well knows that I’m obsessed with the “Mighty Ducks” movies. (It’s even in my Twitter bio, y’all.) So it’s safe to say that this year’s birthday gift from my boyfriend Aaron was pretty perfect – a VIP pass to an autograph signing and meet-and-greet with some of the cast from the franchise! Scheduled to appear were Matt Doherty (Averman – my favorite!), Vincent LaRusso (Adam Banks), Garette Ratliff Henson (Guy Germaine), Brandon Adams (Jesse Hall), Aaron Schwartz (Karp), and Scott Whyte (Gunnar Stahl / Scooter). It was held in Mansfield,…

    Event: “Scandal” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 8, 2015 STORY & PHOTOS Our third and final PaleyFest adventure this year was the panel for “Scandal”! The theater was electric; all the Gladiators in the room were practically foaming at the mouth. The “Lawn Chair” episode was screened (um, emotional much?) and then moderator Jimmy Kimmel introduced the cast. It was the biggest panel we saw, and all of the principal cast members were there, which was awesome.

    Event: “Girls” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 8, 2015 STORY & PHOTOS “GIRLS”. You love it or you hate it, and I love it. (Though not as much as my pal Alex, who loves “Girls” more than anyone.) He and I were both really excited for the “Girls” PaleyFest panel. We tandem-read (and loved) Lena Dunham’s book Not That Kind of Girl while poolside in Miami last year, and Lena is one of Alex’s heroes. It was a big deal to be there.

    Event: “The Good Wife” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 7, 2015 STORY & PHOTOS “The Good Wife” is hands-down one of the best shows on TV today. It has the wit, intelligence, acting and writing quality of a primo cable drama, but it airs 20-24 episodes a year on CBS. Crazy! The creative team and the cast are incredibly talented, and I was thrilled to get to attend their PaleyFest panel tonight!

    City Hall from “Parenthood”

    LOCATION City Hall (supposedly in Berkeley), where Kristina has to go on “Parenthood” when she decides to run for city office. ADDRESS Pasadena City Hall 100 N Garfield Ave Pasadena, CA STORY & PHOTOS In the fifth-season opener of NBC’s emotional roller-coaster of a feel-good family show “Parenthood”, Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter) makes the gutsy decision to run for mayor of Berkeley, against her former employer Bobby Little (Jonathan Tucker). She has to file her paperwork in a hurry, and she does it at City Hall — which is the same City Hall that stands in for Pawnee City Hall on “Parks and Recreation”. In real life, it’s Pasadena City…

    Event: “American Horror Story: Coven” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 28, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS Tonight was the PaleyFest panel for “American Horror Story: Coven” and hot damn, was the crowd excited! People literally cheered for everything but it was really fun. There was a good energy in the air. They screened the episode “Burn, Witch, Burn”, and then brought out the cast.

    Event: “Community” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 26, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS “Community” is a perennial favorite of the Paley Center, having been honored at PaleyFest for an unprecedented five years in a row! (For those keeping track, that’s every year they’ve been on the air.) I don’t think any other show carries that distinction. Go Human Beings!

    Event: “The Mindy Project” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 25, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS This group of people must be my favorite cast currently on TV. “The Mindy Project” makes me laugh every week and makes me die while waiting for the next new episode. The struggle is real. But knowing that the actors and writers of the show are amazingly sweet and funny people makes me very very happy and willing to forgive a painful hiatus after an awesome cliffhanger.

    Event: “Pretty Little Liars” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood WHEN March 16, 2015 STORY & PHOTOS “Pretty Little Liars” is TV’s most tweeted-about show and its fans are obsessive — with good reason, as the show keeps us hooked with twists and turns and mysteries each week. Its cast is a group of talented young actors, who are not only gorgeous but – as I learned at PaleyFest – sweet as well.

    Event: “How I Met Your Mother” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood WHEN March 15, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS It’s a sad month, friends… on March 31st (my birthday!) “How I Met Your Mother” will air its final episode. But the show has had a great run and I was so lucky to be able to attend the PaleyFest farewell for the show in Hollywood tonight. In attendance were creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, director Pam Fryman, and actors Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor, and Cristin Milioti (the mother!).
