For most of us, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. was the first English sitcom we ever confronted, and you can call it love at first sight but they just made us crazy behind them. Remember Rachel’s hairstyle and clothes, Ross’s geeky humor, Phoebe’s psychic nature, Chandler’s sarcastic charm and Joey’s “How you doin?”? These stars were an inspiration to most of the things we did in our teens and still keep doing it. They were a very important part of our life and they taught us things we wouldn’t have learned anywhere else.
I bet there won’t be anyone who wouldn’t want to go to New York in the hope of finding them at the Central Perk and sip coffee on that oh-so-famous-orange-couch. Well if that was your dream then start packing your bags, as it’s coming true soon.
Get set to relive your F.R.E.I.N.D.S. days as to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Warner Bros on Wednesday announced that they are going to open a real pop-up Central Perk on the 199 Lafayette Street in SoHo. The replica will be exactly same as that was shown in the popular 90’s sitcom including the famous orange couch and James Michael Tyler a.k.a Gunther himself.
It will also have weekly sing-along to the Phoebe’s classic songs-including smelly cat-, contests, giveaways merchandises, and they also didn’t forget about the free 8 O’ Clock Coffee. There will also be a limited edition Central Perk Roast for everyone.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your tickets and be on your way already, don’t forget that your favorite Central Perk will be open from September 17 2014 until October 18 2014 only.
As Chandler would say, could this BE any more exciting? Noh! it couldn’t!
