Friends Pop-Up in SF

Basically it's a chance for you to act with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, record yourself singing "Smelly Cat," and pose at Central Perk. Thanks Danna for taking me and telling me about the pop-up! What's the pop-up?  A tribute to the TV show Friends. Where in SF?

If you go upstairs, you have the chance to record a scene with Rachel and Monica! After doing the scene, you can record it from a TV. But they don't send you the recorded scene, I guess that would be a lot of data. The replica of the apartment is pretty spot on! Famous Joey quote: You can also record yo

Both were delicious, but also not pictured is a loaf of bread which I had half of, and there was so much food I could barely finish all the shrimp! Before going to the first NAPABA mixer, I checked out the state capitol, where the lone star was part of the rotunda. I also wanted to check out the flagship Whole Foods - which I mistook for a hospital at first. I was disappointed that the acai bowl machine was broken, and still broken two days later. :(  Another throwback- catching up with my friend David Hong from GBB in Panama who I haven't seen since 2012! Before calling it a night, I stopped by Voodoo donu
