Sit Down — Friends is 20 Years Old
Posted on September 6, 2014 at 3:30 pm
Can it really be two decades since we first met Friends? The beloved television series about the six 20-somethings who were all there for each other premiered 20 years ago, and in honor of that anniversary, a real-life version of Central Perk, the friends’ favorite hangout, will open up for a month in New York City at 199 Lafayette St., at the corner of Broome Street from Sept. 17-Oct. 18. You’ll be able to stop by for a free cup of coffee and sit on the very same orange sofa used on the show, surrounded by some of the original props from the iconic set. You might even run into Gunther, the long-suffering barista played by James Michael Tyler, who will be making appearances.
ICYMI: Jimmy Kimmel surprised Jennifer Aniston with a fan-fiction script for her to perform, complete with a re-creation of one of the show’s other sets and a couple of the other original cast members, too.
