Attention 'Gilmore Girls' Fans: You Can Finally Drink Coffee at Luke's Diner!
By Emily Krauser
Say it with us, Lorelai Gilmore lovers: coffee, coffee, coffee!
As if it wasn't enough that Gilmore Girls will return with a four-part revival series on Netflix in November, the streaming service is giving us one more gift: the chance to visit Luke's Diner. Yes, really.
Netflix is turning 250 cafes into Stars Hollow's famed diner for a one-day-only caffeinated affair on Wednesday, Oct. 5, giving away 250 12-ounce cups of coffee to fans. That means you better get there early -- the promo only runs from 7 a.m. to noon. Plus, everyone knows that Lorelai could consume that much coffee on her own.
Sadly, Luke won't be there to begrudgingly greet us with a pot of joe, a press release revealed that all of the stores will be "decked out with all the Luke's Diner essentials." We assume that means every proprietor will be wearing flannel and a backwards baseball cap -- blue or black only, of course.
All 50 states will be represented by at least one pop-up, and the full list can be found at TownOfStarsHollow.org. The two Los Angeles-area locations are in Studio City and Beverly Hills, so fingers crossed that cast members make a surprise appearance at one of those shops.
This is already 250 times cooler than when Netflix built a pop-up shop at VidCon earlier this summer because, you know, there was only one of those.
