A new Friends tour will let you eat Thanksgiving dinner and recreate the opening credits on set
If you’ve ever dreamed of celebrating Thanksgiving in Monica’s apartment with Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, and Chandler, we’ve got the best news ever. To mark Friends‘s 25th anniversary, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood is giving super-fans the opportunity to attend a once-in-a-lifetime, IRL, Friends-themed “Friendsgiving,” which includes a holiday meal and a 90-minute tour through the studio backlot where you’ll get to see some of the show’s iconic filming locations.
Could this be any more perfect? The answer is yes. Not only will fans get the chance to sit on the orange couch in Central Perk, but they’ll also be able to recreate the show’s opening credits with their own friends in front of the original Friends fountain.
“Friendsgiving guests will be among the first to grab a colorful umbrella and recreate the show’s opening credits while singing and dancing with their friends in front of the original, never-before-displayed fountain,” the studio said in a press release on its website.
Fans will also get to see the outside of Stage 24, where the series was filmed, as well as faux Central Park where Phoebe and Rachel went jogging that one time.
As for the holiday meal, it will include turkey, ham, and all the fixings, as well as vegan/gluten-free options. Plus, there will also be mixologists serving themed drinks, beer, and wine for purchase. Unfortunately, it won’t be prepared by Monica, but hopefully, Ross’ infamous Thanksgiving “moist-maker” sandwich will be on the menu. (And hopefully Rachel’s beef and peas trifle will not be.)
So how can you attend Friendsgiving? It’s easy. Tickets will be available for purchase starting September 5th. They’re $139 per person, and the price includes a meal, a Friends-themed tour, photo-ops, and so much more. The event takes place on November 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 29th, and 30th at 1:30 p.m., 4:00 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. ET.
If you can’t make the tour, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate the sitcom’s milestone anniversary, including massive pop-pops, the Pottery Barn Friends collection, and even the opportunity to watch your fave TV friends on the big screen.
