I had a fun time heading to Sandy Springs, Ga for a The FRIENDS Experience Atlanta preview event. It was held in Perimeter Pointe shopping center and my girlfriend Chiquita and I didn’t know what to expect. I’m also going to be honest and let you know that I only watched about one or two episodes of the popular hit tv series back in the day but did know about a few of the characters from the show lol.
Once we stepped inside, it was a total experience for sure lol! Lots of nostalgia from the show with artifacts, video clips, set recreations from Joey and Chandler’s apartment, Monica and Rachel’s kitchen, and Central Perk. You’ll even get to poke Ugly Naked Guy, and more. Did I also mention, instagrammable backdrops too? It was cute and if you’re a huge fan of Friends, you have to stop by! Oh there is even a gift shop that you can buy tees, sweatshirts, books, games and mugs. A lil something for everyone lol. Visit the website where you can purchase tickets. Check out a few snaps from the event inside…
