No surprise, 'Gilmore Girls' fans line up for coffee at Luke's Diner pop-ups

Netflix actually did something other than gluing people to their couches.

Netflix actually did something other than gluing people to their couches.

The streaming service opened 250 pop-up Luke's Diners – inspired by the popular show "Gilmore Girls" – across the country, which had people lined up outside two Twin Cities coffee shops early Wednesday morning.

Dogwood Coffee and Swede Hollow Cafe in St. Paul both had lines around the corner, even two hours after opening, posts on social media show.

The first 250 customers to the pop-ups got a free coffee and a chance to buy some "Gilmore Girls" merchandise, with the pop-up open from 7 a.m. to noon.

This fun idea comes on the anniversary of the pilot episode of "Gilmore Girls," which premiered Oct. 5, 2000, and is a promotion for the Nov. 25 Netflix release of “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life,” which will be four, 90-minute episodes.

And to catch up before the premiere, you can binge-watch all seven seasons of the original series on Netflix now.
