Let's hug it out, b*tch!

HBO's Entourage is one of my favorite shows on television-- I even made my dad watch it with me last weekend while he was in town, and it was only then I realized how inappropriately brilliant it is (talk about wierd when we're watching and Turtle says "Now Drama has the cleanest @$$hole in LA" after he encountered a "fat whore's" long, scary tongue, LOL).

The crew is always hitting up LA's most famous and exclusive hotspots making the viewer feel like part of Vincent Chase's "entourage" in young, hot Hollywood. When some of these places are not being used for filming or excessive coke snorting, they are used for fabulous event venues... let's see:
The Chateau Marmont is an historic hotel on the famed Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood. In the show it's where Vince meets with fictional film director Billy Walsh to discuss "Queens Boulevard". In real life Chanel sponsored a party for the film Marie Antoinette in 2006 and transformed the hotel's garden courtyard into a luxurious French-inspired lounge.

In Season 3's episode called Crash and Burn, Turtle and Drama pursue a foot race to swanky Beverly Hills eatery Spago only for Turtle to fall flat on his face. Spago was the location for the premier party for the movie Closer in 2006 and because the guest list grew so out of control, they had to put up 2 tents at the last minute in front of the restaurant for the party.
