Are you a “Gilmore Girls” fan who always dreamed of grabbing a cup of coffee at Luke’s diner? You can’t go to Stars Hollow — but how about Swede Hollow?
Two St. Paul coffee shops will be serving up free “Luke’s” coffee Wednesday morning, courtesy of Netflix. Witty high-speed banter peppered with obscure pop-culture references? That’s up to you.
It’s supposed to commemorate the 16th anniversary of the original TV show’s premiere, but it’s also a promotion for the new “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” scheduled to debut Nov. 25 on Netflix.
Two Minnesota coffee shops are among about 200 nationwide taking part: Dogwood Coffee, 825 Carleton St. in St. Paul’s St. Anthony Park neighborhood, and Swede Hollow Cafe, 725 E. 7th St.
The free coffee flows from 7 a.m. to noon, although the 250 cups Netflix is providing could run out well before that.
