Here's a question for Friends fans: Have you ever wanted to hang out at "Central Perk"? If so, you’re in luck. A replica of the series' iconic coffee shop—dubbed "The One With the Free Coffee"—will be open in Manhattan from Sept. 17 to Oct. 18, Pix11 reports. Your favorite bleach-blond barista, Gunther, will be making appearances, as will props from the show, including the famous orange couch and the aforementioned free coffee, MTV reports. Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel tortured fans with a mini-reunion—a real one has already been shot down by Courteney Cox—on his show last night, Vanity Fair reports. The reunion, complete with a replicated version of Monica and Rachel's apartment, comes as the show celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. (More Friends stories.)
