If you weren’t a girl who came of age in the early to mid-2000s, it’s understandable that the phrase “Gilmore Girls” doesn’t get you all that excited.

But if you are part of this (admittedly specific) audience, then golly do we have some news for you!

Netflix is turning 250 cafes into Star Hollows’ acclaimed Luke’s Diner – and six of those are in Colorado!

Although Netflix doesn’t guarantee there will be an adorable but somewhat grumpy man in flannel and a backwards hat judging you for your caffeine addiction, the first 200 visitors at each location will get a free 12-ounce coffee.


The locations are open only from 7 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, so brush up on your vocabulary and get ready to discover your inner Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.

For the record, Netflix chose Oct. 5 for the promotion because it marks the 16th anniversary of the show’s first episode … and if that doesn’t make you feel old, nothing else will.

Netflix’s Gilmore Girls reboot will hit the streaming service on Nov. 25.

Here’s a list of the Colorado coffee shops that will turn into Luke’s Diner! If you’ll be out of town (or are planning a cross-country Luke’s Diner road trip), you can find the full list here: http://bit.ly/2cO0TGq
