Earlier this month, Clueless turned 18. Say whaaaa? So I did what any normal crazy fan would do. I threw a party. As if. Although that just gave me an idea for when Clueless turns 21.

But really, I celebrated by doing a Clueless tour around LA and, wait for it, The Valley.


And the best part is, this was totally TH’s idea. He even wanted to prepare for it and watch the movie the night before. And I was like, no it’s cool. We can watch Boyz N The Hood. Errr.

Because Curbed LA tweeted The Ultimate Clueless Map of LA and, yes, The Valley, off we went.

We started it off at Occidental College in Eagle Rock aka Bronson Alcott High School where, “you guys talk like grown-ups.”


Obama went to Occidental so when Cher says, “Oh, well this is really good school.” Let’s take her word for it.


School’s out for summer so no loadies hanging out on the grassy knoll.

Also at Occidental was Heather’s dorm.


“Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn’t say that. That Polonius guy did.”


Then we jumped on the fwy and headed to the Westsiiiide Pavilion.


a place to gather thoughts and regain strength.


The Contempo Casuals she’s seen inside of though is actually at The Beverly Center, which was pointless to go to since Contempo is no more. Plus who wants to go to the mall. Extra negative points if it’s on a weekend.

TH kept asking me if I was sure I didn’t want to go. I think he was really getting into it.

Then we headed over to the fountain where Cher proclaims…


“I love Josh”


Only a few miles away was Di’s house.


“This is where Dionne lives. She’s my friend because we both know what it’s like for people to be jealous of us.”


Guess these people wanted more privacy.


“Hello, that was a stop sign.”


“I totally paused.”

After this we went home for a little break before “making a cameo at The Val party.”

We went deep into the Valley for this. Granada Hills.


“Where, in Kuwait?”


Almost didn’t recognize it without the Christmas lights.

Next stop, Cher’s house.

And get this, is actually in The Valley. In Encino.


I was the most excited about seeing her “classic” house with columns dating back to 1972.

But nice try trying to be able to see it.

It’s gated.

This was the best shot we (TH) was able to get.


I was totally buggin’.

Just as TH was walking back to the car, another car full of girls was approaching the gates, giggling and laughing.


Good thing he doesn’t get embarrassed.

The mall where Tai has her near-death experience is the mall I do frequent somewhat often because Zara. It’s only like 3 minutes away.

That Williams Sonoma is still there and Zara is like the next store over from where that Java place was.

And last is my favorite liquor store, although I’ve never purchased any liquor from here, or actually set foot inside.


But every time I drive past it I can’t help but say, – all together now – “this is an Alaia.”


Since then, the sign has been freshened up and the payphones have been removed.

So we had one more stop but only because it was on our way home.

The school interiors were shot at Grant High School, again in The Valley.

“He gave me a C, which drags down my entire average.”


“Everywhere in LA takes 20 mins.”

If Cher really did live in Encino and picked up Di at her house in Beverly Hills to go to school in Eagle Rock, she’d for sure be late for Mr. Hall’s class.

And that’s what our Sunday looked like.
