Take The “Mad Men” Pseudo-Reality Tour

Lots of ad folks are dumping on AMC’s “Mad Men,” but Gridskipper has your Google-mapped guide to all the hotspots (and approximate locations) of many of the scenes on the show so far:

Don Draper and Rachel Menken have their first tête-à-tête at a lounge with distinctive zebra-print wallpaper. This almost has to be a visual mini-tribute to the zebra-print banquettes at the legendary El Morocco. The Citigroup Center stands at this address today.

Have fun. And if you’re lucky, maybe you can dig up a Mad Ave old-timer to give you a personal tour.
