Gilmore Girls fans can finally visit Luke’s Diner
Run don’t walk to your local Luke’s Diner to sip free coffee like a Gilmore Girl today, Oct. 5. This is not a drill, people. As we anxiously await our favorite fast-talking mother-daughter duo to grace TV screens, Netflix is turning 200 cafes into Luke’s Diner so fans can have a proper Gilmore Girls experience.
All Gilmore Girls fans know that the best coffee is served by Luke inside his Stars Hollow diner. So to celebrate the 16th anniversary of the Gilmore Girls original television premiere Netflix is throwing a coffee-lovers dream for fans across the U.S. and Canada. Baristas, likely without Luke’s grumpy charm, will don blue hats and aprons and serve about 250 12-ounce cups of coffee at each location, Eater Detroit reported.
Gillies, what die-hard Gilmore Girls fans are called, will likely be in line early for the 7 a.m. event start time so plan on an early morning. While there’s at least one Luke’s Diner pop up in each state, many cities have a few great locations in case your enthusiasm for Lorelai and Rory is so extreme you need to take the entire morning off from work and chug 36-ounces of coffee. Just me?
The highly anticipated revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, is set to hit Netflix on November 25, which just happens to be this Gillies’ birthday. Best. Present. Ever. Like most fans, we’ve been rewatching all seven seasons in my house and seriously considering attending the Gilmore Girls Fan Fest at the end of the month that’ll transform an entire New England town into a real-life Stars Hollow.
You’ll have until noon to possibly find what Netflix described as a “fun surprise under their custom Gilmore Girls coffee sleeve.” Since we’re real Gilmore Girls fans, we’ll have a Scary Mommy writer on the scene at one of Seattle’s three locations. If you’re planning on attending, check out the full list of Luke’s Diners here and send us your pics on Facebook – just don’t let Luke see your cell phone.
