Where you lead, I will follow…especially if there’s caffeine.
The Gilmore Girls defined my teen years. I spent hours binging on the series (I owned all seven seasons on DVD). I dreamed of having the quick wit of Lorelei and Rory and living in a small New England town where everyone knows everyone’s business but I don’t mind so much because we all genuinely care for one another. My friends and I to this day argue about who was a better boyfriend to Rory: Dean, Jess, or Logan. And who didn’t envy the copious amounts of coffee they drank at Luke’s diner on a daily basis?
Tomorrow, all my Stars Hollow dreams are coming true. Coffee shops around the country are celebrating the 16th anniversary of Gilmore Girls and its forthcoming Netflix revival by converting their shops into little Luke’s Diners. Local coffee shops participating are Qualia, Flying Fish, Three Fifty, Bump ‘n Grind, and Grounded Coffee Shop. They are partnering with Netflix to give away over 200 free cups of coffee each, and they will be outfitted in Luke’s Diner aprons and t-shirts, among other things. Make sure to visit between 7am and noon for your chance to be a part of this magnificent day.
For those of you who don’t live in the DC area or who might be out of town, don’t fret! Check out this website to find out if Luke’s Diner is popping up at a coffee shop near you!
Who else is excited to celebrate the Gilmore Girls with free coffee tomorrow?
