My educated guess is that it was used as the Pink Pizza.

  2. The scene where Big Apple and drunk Gary are walking back to the car from the party suggests the party is located at the house at 4334 Lemp. You can clearly see the house in the background as it is lit up with party lights and the direction they came from suggests that was the house, not 4345. Aerial shots on Google of 4334 closely match the layout of the house and pool area in the movie, although it is unclear whether the pool still exists.

  3. The scene where the boys are talking to the prostitute was on the Northeast corner of Sunset & Western. In the film you can see the "Sunset" Theater which was actually the Pussycat porn theater until about 5 years ago.

  4. Mountain Mike's comment about Vincenzo's Pizza formerly located at 1704 N. Western Ave and then serving as the fictional location for the Pink Pizza is correct. If you look closely at the film shot provided (above) of Gary driving off in the pink station wagon to make his delivery in the foreground you can clearly see reserved parking spaces for "Weekend-Eve Vincenzo Only." The filming location at this address is further confirmed by the large 4 story brick building seen in the background of the same shot which is still visible on Google today.

  5. The filming location for the party & pool scene at David's house (aka Big Apple) in the film has still not been confirmed. In the screenshot you have provided above from the film David is definitely standing in front of the house at 4344 Lemp Ave. While the houses are somewhat unrecognizable today at this intersection compared to when they were originally filmed in the early 80's the flagtone-like wall structure near the corner of the house at 4344 is still visible today on Google street view. The house in the background at 4334 Lemp, lit up and flanked by cars, seems to fit as David's house. In the filming sequence when David escorts inebriated Gary back to his parked car they are walking from that general direction suggesting that was the location for the party. Whether the house served as the filming location for the party and pool area is another discussion.
