How Time Flies- Happy Birthday to Us

We may be 30 years old today, but don’t worry- you can still trust us!

On this date in 1981 Forbidden Planet NYC opened on 821 Broadway at 12th St with a line around the block, chomping at the bit to get in.  We’ve come a long way since then.  Today, April 18 2011 we turn 30.

We’ll be taking our birthday pretty easy, preferring to make a big deal of things throughout the coming year and on this date in 2012 to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, but I promise you- we’re gonna blow you away with all the cool stuff we have planned in the coming months…

So watch this space… The next 12 months will be very interesting.
