Today I spent the morning drinking coffee at Luke’s Diner in Stars Hollow.
No, I’m not hallucinating, I’ve got the cup to prove it.
Much like the Gilmore Girls, I need a cuppa joe (or three or four) before I can truly function.
Across the country, in honor of the first showing of Gilmore Girls, coffee shops were serving free brews with a Luke’s cardboard holder (what even is that called?) and cup with a Snapchat code that unlocked a new filter when you scanned it and a quote quote from the show about their beloved drink of choice. I later learned that there were multiple cups with different quotes, from the past and the future. Mine read:
Everything in my life has something to do with coffee. I believe in a former life, I was coffee.” – Lorelai (Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life)
The line was absolutely insane, but the smartest thing I did was eat. The line to be sat down to eat actually was very short! Our faux Luke’s was actually the Coffee House Cafe in North Dallas and their pancakes (& crispy bacon) do not disappoint!
Overall, I think the Girls would be proud of us – my drink was free and black, just the way it should be!
Now, November 25th can’t come soon enough!
