With Gilmore Girls briefly returning this year (we'll get four new episodes on Netflix starting November 25th), the nation is transforming into Stars Hollow. Phase one: Luke's Diner is coming to a coffee shop near you.

It's unclear exactly how far they're going with this promotional stunt, but you will get free coffee from 7 a.m. to noon, and they promise "other special touches from the show and surprises from Netflix," too.

In Los Angeles, the following shops will turn into Luke's Diner this Wednesday, October 5th:

  • Fox Coffee House, 437 W Willow St, Long Beach
  • Comoncy, 12265 Ventura Blvd, Studio City
  • Comoncy, 413 N Bedford Dr, Beverly Hills

On the show, Luke's is owned by Luke Danes, whose small town charm... no, WAKE UP PEOPLE, Luke is the worst. THE WORST. But his diner did serve as a nice stage to showcase Stars Hollow's slice of life.
