Gilmore Girls: Netflix opens Luke's Diner pop-ups

Posted on

The WB

Ahead of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life arriving this November, Netflix is bringing a part of everyone’s favorite fictional Connecticut town to life — and thankfully, it’s not Taylor’s Olde Fashioned Soda Shoppe: The streaming service has announced that it will be transforming 200 cafes and coffee shops around the country into none other than Luke’s Diner on Oct. 5.

Netflix will supply each location with “Luke’s Diner essentials” including T-shirts and branded aprons, and will also be footing the bill for fans’ coffee habits by providing the first 200 customers in each establishment with free 12-ounce cups of coffee, as well as a “fun surprise under their custom Gilmore Girls coffee sleeve.”

The pop-ups will run from 7 a.m. to noon Oct. 5. There’s no word yet if a certain gruff, flannel-wearing owner will also be making an appearance — or denying anyone their coffee fix.   

A full list of participating locations all over the country is available here
