If you were a ’90s kid, then you’re probably just as obsessed as I am with Gilmore Girls. With a revival on its way in little over a month, Netflix is pulling out all the stops in marketing this four part event, A Year in the Life. Most recently, on October 5th, the day the first Gilmore Girls episode aired, coffee shops around the country became Luke’s for a day, handing out free coffee in cute cups after people waited in long lines early in the morning.
Ich Glückspilz oder: Gilmore Girls dream come true 💛 Vorgestern wurde aus ausgewählten Cafes in den USA für einen Morgen lang Luke's Diner und ein Coffee Shop um die Ecke war mit am Start. Um 6 Uhr morgens gelesen, um 7 Uhr hingestiefelt und 30 Minuten mit anderen #gilmoregirls Fans (und Adam Sandler) angestanden 😂 #lukesdiner #happy #butfirstcoffee #coffeecoffeecoffee #journeyjeanny @gilmoregirls #☕️ #gilmoregirlsreunion #happybirthdaygilmore @netflixde
Sadly for me, I decided to stop by my nearest Hubbub Coffee at around 4 pm, when all that was left of the celebration was a Luke’s sign and cut-out of Scott Patterson laying down his updated set of rules for 2016’s crowd of coffee shop-goers.
If you missed out on the coffee shindig and also happen to not be among the 1,200 people who got tickets for the Gilmore Girls Fan Festival in the Stars Hollow-inspired town, Washington Depot, you can still experience some of the small town magic on the Town of Stars Hollow website. On there, you can write a letter to Kirk, check out the town updates, and even watch a movie at the Black and White Movie Theater everyThursday, when Netflix links a movie referenced in the show to their app.
