“The One Where the ‘Friends’ Couch Visits Chicago” is the theme for this weekend. As part of the sitcom’s 25th anniversary celebration, the orange couch from the famed coffee shop Central Perk is on a world tour with a few stops in Chicago.
The couch will be at Chicago’s Maggie Daley Park on Sept. 21 and the Willis Tower Skydeck on Sept. 22.
Then the couch heads to the AT&T Flagship Store, 600 N. Michigan Ave., on Sept. 25 as part of the store’s “Friends” celebration.
The celebration will include a life-size replica of Central Perk, a “Friends” boutique and a watch lounge to catch up on some interviews and favorite episodes.
Google is also celebrating the anniversary of the sitcom. Search a character’s name on the site followed by “Friends” and click on the logo next to the name on the right side of the screen for a surprise.
