It was the orgasm heard ’round the world…

This summer, Katz’s Delicatessen will double down on its pop cultural acclaim. And by that, we mean When Harry Met Sally.

The iconic movie with the immortalized Lower East Side scene celebrates its 30th anniversary in July, and the deli is celebrating with a month of movie-related events.

For instance, on July 12 (original release date), there will be a reenactment contest, where any ambitious patrons can try their luck at faking it at the exact same table in the “I’ll have what she’s having” scene. There will be judges, and most likely prizes.

Towards the end of the month, Katz’s Deli is teaming up with Downtown Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse for a one-night screening of When Harry Met Sally. Movie tickets will include eats from an on-site pastrami and corned beef carving station at the theater.

And if that’s not enough, fans all over the country can order a special edition “I’ll Have What She’s Having” package for $135, which includes the famed order for each of the main characters (pastrami and turkey with all the fixings), as well as a black-and-white When Harry Met Sally t-shirt, some Katz’s Deli pins, and a tote bag.
