Oy, with the poodles already!
Wondering what Luke’s is and why it’s so obsessed with coffee?
Luke’s is the beloved diner in the hit TV series “Gilmore Girls.” Avalon bakery, in partnership with Netflix, will transform their store into every GG fan’s dream, a real-life Luke’s Diner. Luke’s Detroit is set to serve 250 free 12-ounce cups of coffee on a first-come first-serve basis. Since eating is a religion for the Gilmore Girls, pie by the slice will be available for purchase, paying homage to another Stars Hollow favorite, Weston’s Bakery.
Swing by Luke’s Detroit for your coffee and a shot of cynicism.
For those of us who can’t do the standing and walking and the words-putting-into sentence-doing without our coffee, this one-day event is a dream come true!
In preparation for the four-episode revival of The Gilmore Girls, airing on November 25, Netflix recruited over 200 cafes across the United States to participate in the event.
Lesley O’Connell, the retail manager at Avalon International breads recounts the conception of the event. A little over three weeks ago, AIB received a call from Netflix about the promotion. O’Connell reveals that Netflix sent over media items including aprons, hats and signs. It seems like the only thing Luke’s Detroit won’t have is coffee in an IV.
In respect to the nostalgic fan base, the event takes place on October 5 – the day the series first aired back in 2007.
We know one thing’s for sure: Gilmore Girls fans will go to ‘the ends of the earth’ for coffee and downtown Detroit is no exception!
