The Del Coronado and the Jeff and Jer Show

posted by Nell Minow

While we were in San Diego for Comic-Con we had a chance to visit the legendary Hotel Del Coronado, where Some Like It Hot and The Stunt Man were filmed. We had breakfast overlooking the water and imagined Marilyn Monroe and Peter O’Toole getting ready to go on their sets. IMG_5683.JPG
And I loved going to the studio to do my weekly movie reviews in person on the Jeff and Jer Show on Star 94.1. I look forward every week to talking to them about what’s going on in theaters and on DVD and they are every bit as charming and delightful — and handsome — as I expected. (Yes, that’s me with the black eye — car accident, I was rear-ended, everyone is all right and my eye is now much, much better.)
Jeff and Jer and Little Tommy treated us to a dinner at Trattioria Fantastica that lived up to its name. Many, many thanks for your graciousness and hospitality and for the great fun I have every week being on your show.

    So was the accident in CA or No. VA – both places are filled with accidents waiting to happen. Glad you are OK.

    Thanks so much, jestrfyl — it was in Washington DC, right near the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and I was on my way to a movie screening. The car was totalled and I am very, very lucky that the black eye was my only injury.

    I know that intersection well – a veritable 6 way street! I sometimes wonder if the DC streets were designed that way so everyone in government is kept in good practice looking over their shoulder, both ways, and straight ahead all at once!
    I hope the movie was worth one car and one black eye. Now, did you wear an eyepatch at Comic-Con, just to keep in the spirit of the event? I hope you will post an extensive set of thoughts on tht event (Ooooh, my jealousy is oozing right now!).

    Just finishing up the last Comic-Con post, so stay tuned.
