HARRISBURG, Pa (WHTM) – If you’re a fan of “Gilmore Girls” and you like coffee with your oxygen, here’s some good news. Two Midstate cafes will turn into Luke’s diner on Oct. 5 and offer free cups of coffee.
250 cafes around the country will be transformed into the fictional diner, where main characters Lorelai and Rory frequently fed their caffeine addiction. Seven of the mini-Luke’s are in Pennsylvania and two are in the Midstate, including the Tomato Pie Cafe on Techport Drive in Harrisburg and Brew Cumberland’s Best on Bridge Street in New Cumberland.
The cafes will give away free cups of coffee to the first 250 people in the door between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. There will also be prize giveaways.
It’s part of a celebration of the show’s first episode, which aired on Oct. 5, 2000, and a promotion for the Nov. 25 “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” reboot on Netflix. The series will feature four, 90-minute chapters with the original stars, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
