16 years ago, Gilmore Girl premiered on TV and has thus madly influenced the copious levels of coffee I drink daily, the books I read yearly and the pace of my speech, quips and oddball humor.
Now that Netflix is reviving the show for a mere (but highly anticipated 4 episodes!) they partnered with 200 coffee shops around the US to convert them into mini-Luke’s Diners to pass out free cups of coffee for the first 200-250 people.
I actually went to visit on these Luke’s Diners to get my complimentary coffee and coffee sleeve, because who turns down free coffee??
The line was long, but the people were friendly. There were more Gilmore Girl fans than not. Although I am baffled at how long people will wait in line for a free cup of coffee as a promo for a TV show they don’t even watch.
Here are my goodies and takeaway’s from this morning adventure:
The line. There were just as many people ahead of me as there were behind me.
My Cup with promised Lorelei coffee quote:
The sleeve. Note – there is nothing special underneath the sleeve itself. Just a quote and a Snapchat filter on the actual coffee cup.
The No Cell Phone Sign:
It was a fun morning, and I’m glad to see so many people excited for the show. I’m not sure if I’ll spend my entire Black Friday watching all 4 episodes, or if I’ll space it out over time and savor the humor. What will you do? Have you tried my Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge yet? Cuz…I kind of gave up on it a while ago. Although the spirit of reading is still strong with me. Just not blogging or reviewing. Those flames are gone. =p
