If you love coffee as much as Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, you’re in luck. In honor of the 16th anniversary of the premiere of Gilmore Girls and its new season, Netflix will convert 200 coffee shops around the country into Luke’s Diners! Starting at 7 a.m. on October 5, each location will offer free coffee until noon for the first 200 customers.
Downtown Jersey City’s own Short Grain is one of the participating locations and the only one in New Jersey! (If you work in NYC, look for Luke’s at selected locations of Ground Central Coffee and The Bean.) According to a Netflix press release there will be plenty of surprise “Luke’s Diner essentials” available, so make sure to stop by the cafe and check it out for yourself!
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life consists of four 90-minute episodes premiering at the stroke of midnight on November 25 (Black Friday). I guess we’re going to be online shopping this year!
