Scary as it my seem, it's September, and here in editorial-land that means that we're already starting to get pitches for holiday gift guides. Scarier yet is the fact that that means an onslaught of visiting relatives will soon be in town. And there's no doubt at least one of the poor buggers will plead you to take them on a star map hunt, or worse yet, join them on one of those god-awful Starline tours.

Instead of having to bear the shame of hopping on a big bus full of gaping tourists, you can now utilize the research of Urbanspoon, who spent months poring over posts figuring out which L.A. restaurants have the highest concentration of star power.

Some of the finds, like the Chateau Marmont, Cut, and Nobu, are no surprise. But others, like La Descarga, Du Pars, and the Roger Room, were less expected. This is great news, of course, because as soon as your starstruck auntie from Iowa rolls in to town, you have a legitimate excuse to take her out to sample some of Steve Livigni's cocktails.

Here's a full list of Angeleno hotspots and the celebs that frequent them so that you can plan your own boozy tour. The folks at Urbanspoon also did the same for other major cities including Las Vegas, Chicago, and of course, New York. Take a peek.
