5 pop-up events to check out this long weekend

Many Sydney siders are starting to get away for the long weekend, while others are checking what to do.

If if you are in the what to do category, we have five pop-up events we recommend to check out.

Get your friends together and visit the Central Perk Popup cafe

It has been 11 long years since we reluctantly bid farewell to Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey. I personally still remember the infamous Smelly Cat song by Phoebe.

Sydneysiders and visitors can check out the iconic orange couch, sip on a cup of free (Yes – Free!) coffee and catch up with friends. There will also be Friends merchandise up for grabs.
Last year the New York Central Perkattracted almost 50,000 Friends lovers, let’s see if Sydney can attract the same numbers.

Address and details:

Central Perk Pop Up will be at the corner of College Street & Liverpool Street, Hyde Park, Sydney from October 5-18, 2015. Sunday-Wednesday: 9am-5pm Thursday-Saturday: 9am-7pm


Are you NBN ready?

The Telstra Store on Wheels NBN is currently at Auburn servicing the Homebush area.
