My LA to Z: Corey Fogelmanis

The <em>Girl Meets World</em> actor stars as John in <em>Peter Pan and Tinker Bell: A Pirate’s Christmas</em>, opening at the Pasadena Playhouse December 9. Here he talks hockey, macaroons, and his amateur photography skills

Amoeba Music

faison2It’s a really awesome record store. I’ve been going there for about a year. They have all types of music, vintage posters, and books. It’s such a cool place to just go and look around. It’s a great place to get gifts, too.

The Pantages Theatre

faison2I am a huge fan of musical theatre, and since I don’t get to go to New York very often, it’s nice to be able to go see all the national tours that come through there. The last show I saw there was The Phantom of the Opera. It was really cool—I actually got to go backstage for a tour and meet most of the cast, too!

Bottega Louie

faison2They have the best pizza—I always get the Margherita. And I love their macaroons. I got introduced to macaroons there. I’d never had them before, and now I love them.

The Greek Theatre

faison4It’s a super cool place to go see concerts up in the woods. It has a really nice feel to it. I saw Christina Perri there a couple months ago, and it was really cool.

Samy’s Camera

faison5I’m really into photography, so it’s kind of like being a kid in a candy store to me. I got my Nikon from there. I’m really into nature photography and architecture—I don’t do portraits currently, but I’d like to get into that, too.

Travel Town Museum

faison7It’s a really cool outdoor train museum in Griffith Park. I went there a lot when I was younger because I was super obsessed with trains, so that was one of my favorite places to go.

Staples Center

faison7My favorite thing to do there is go to a Kings game. I love the Kings. My dad’s been a big hockey fan for a while, and I was born into it. I like watching the games on TV, but the atmosphere when you go to a game live is really fun.

Los Angeles Center Studios

faison7This is where we shoot Girl Meets World. I spend half of my life there, so I’ve made a lot of memories just hanging out with my cast. We’ve been there for two years now.
