The holidays are a time for treats. It also seems that, as we adopt newfound favorite items, there are bound to be others that fall by the wayside. Our Lori Fredrich looks back on six treats that make her feel nostalgic. What are some of yours?
Regardless of whether you're a neurotic Monica, sarcastic Chandler, spacey Phoebe, earnest Rachel, sandwich-loving Joey or nerdy Ross, the new "Friends"-themed pop-up bar inside the City Lounge will appeal.
