The movie When Harry Met Sally opened nationwide on July 12, 1989. To celebrate the 30-year anniversary, Katz’s Deli in Manhattan is asking patrons to recreate the memorable scene in which Sally (Meg Ryan) shows Harry (Billy Crystal) how women can convincingly fake an orgasm- while they are both sitting at a table in the deli.
Katz's Delicatessen, the hundred-plus-year old Lower East Side deli in which the duo filmed an iconic scene back in 1989 is honoring the film's legacy with an entire month of When Harry Met Sally festivities.
On Friday, July 12, the restaurant will host a scene reenactment contest, in which Katz's guests can recreate the famed "I'll have what she's having" scene, sitting at the exact same table where Ryan and Crystal filmed three decades ago. Contestants of any gender can try and fake it better than the comedic actress and a panel of to be announced notable New Yorkers and special guests will judge who fakes it best.
No word yet on whether there will be a prize for the best fake orgasm, or just bragging rights. The contest is one part of Katz's month-long celebration of When Harry Met Sally, which also includes menu specials and a screening of the film at Alamo Drafthouse. -via Boing Boing
