Gilmore Girls fans will now get to interact with the show in real life, as Luke’s Diner is popping up across the country this Wednesday, October 5 in advance of the Netflix revival. Five coffee shops in the Bay Area are taking part, offering free coffee on Netflix, plus "all the Luke’s Diner essentials" including branded aprons and T-shirts. It’s unclear whether any Luke impersonators — or, imagine, the man himself — will be taking part.

At least one coffee shop per state are currently listed on the promotional website, which in the Bay Area includes:

  • Palio Cafe (505 Montgomery St. #1, SF)
  • Awaken Cafe (1429 Broadway, Oakland)
  • Hive, the Place to Bee (2139 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland)
  • Roy's Station Coffee & Tea (197 Jackson St., San Jose)
  • Caffe Frascati (315 S. First St., San Jose).

The pop-ups run from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This Wednesday was chosen since it’s the 16th anniversary of the series’ original pilot airdate. The Netflix revival airs on Friday, November 26.
