LOCATION OF THE WEEK: That Mexican Place in Crazy Stupid Love

Crazy Stupid Love.

It’s a good one. You’ve got you’re A-list stars (Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Emma Stone), your comedy, your drama and your Sherman Oaks Mexican restaurants.

Yep. That last one is El Torito Grill, an upscale tacos-and-margaritas joint that knows its way around a combination platter. And it’s there that Emma Stone’s clueless boyfriend offers her a job at his law firm, rather than what she’s expecting. Which is a marriage proposal. Understandably, it didn’t go well, and she stormed out. Now, to each his own, but if we were dating Emma, this is how things would’ve gone down.

Step 1: Propose to Emma. Because, obviously, come on.

Step 2: Champagne for everybody! Okay, maybe just a bottle for the table. Let’s not get carried away. You’ve got a wedding to pay for.

Step 3: Subconsciously rejoice that you didn’t send your now-fiancée running into the arms/abs/chiseled jaw of Ryan Gosling.

Step 4: Order more queso. Because, obviously, come on.
