A Friends Themed Bottomless Brunch Is Coming To The UK
A Friends themed brunch is coming to the UK, with the option to get stuck into bottomless gin, wine, beer or vodka. Where do I sign up?
The brunches will be popping up in a number of cities, including Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Dublin and Edinburgh and guests are encouraged to wear Friends fancy dress with a prize for the best one - so if you've ever fancied getting The Rachel cut, now's the time.
The 90-minute sessions include a quiz, food, charades and the option to upgrade to bottomless drinks for an hour - while all the fun goes on, Friends will be played on a projector, so you can catch up with some of your favourite episodes.
Tickets are £35 for adults (or £25 for kids) and you can add on bottomless bubbles for £25 or bottomless gin, vodka, wine or beer for £20. Sounds good to me.
And if that isn't enough to put a smile on the face of any Friends fan, earlier this week, Deadline reported that an unscripted reunion special is in the works for HBO Max.
Nellie Andreeva, the TV editor for the publication, said she's been told the six fictional pals, played by Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer are all set to make a comeback.

HBO Max's chief creative officer Kevin Reilly has remained tight-lipped about a special; speaking last month he said: "There is interest all around, and yet we can't get the interests all alighted to push the button on it. Today it's just maybe."
In the new report, Deadline claims that shortly after he made this announcement negotiations opened up again and all the cast had reached an agreement in principle with Warner Bros for the hour-long special.
According to Nellie, each of the six actors will be paid in the region of $3-$4 million for appearing in the special. This equates to around £2.3m-£3m... or between £38,000-£50,000 per minute. That's a lot of bottomless brunches.
Also on board, Nellie writes, is Friends co-creators and executive producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane.
However, before we get too excited, Kauffman spoke during a Friends 25th anniversary panel at Tribeca TV Festival in September to shut down rumours of a reunion saying: "We will not be doing a reunion show, we will not be doing a reboot."
I guess, we'll just have to wait and see then, eh?
