Where You Lead, I Will Follow...for 16 Years!2:21 PM
Fast talkin', caffeine guzzlin', Stars Hollow livin' duo!
I have no idea how I started watching it, but I remember it being on the "weird" channel, the WB. I remember loving it for so many reasons, but I loved the relationship between the Mother and Daughter. I always thought the troubadour was the funniest thing and he still makes me laugh during those episodes. Sookie also made me laugh, her ability to get hurt was just too unreal, but her character was great.
Regardless of why anyone watched it, it was an awesome show. Here we are, sixteen years later celebrating in true Gilmore fashion. Netflix reached out to various local coffee shops around the US and allowed them to turn into mini Luke's Diner Pop-ups to celebrate the Gilmore-versary!
So, of course I stalked social media for the announcement. Luckily, I also receive their emails, so I was in the loop right away. I know Summer Sister is a huge GG fan, but I didn't know how many more of my friends had the same, odd love for his mother-daughter duo as I do. One friend, who I haven't seen in a year, was just as excited as I was. So excited, we text plans to meet ridiculously early to get our Luke's coffee.
After a great workout at Midtown, even stretching and rolling occurred, I ran over to the Trade to meet Amanda. Before I left, she text me there was already a line formed. When I got there, I met her in line...which was super long. There we stood, freezing and chatting for probably a little over an hour. Literally freezing, but too excited to let it deter us from our end goal! The cup.
The Trade was minimally decorated, but it was still cute. They had a Luke's sign outside and their windows had Luke's logos on them too. There were a couple of signs inside, some mentioning Stars Hollow, also a list of "Luke's Rules," but more catered to current days (re: NO Man Buns)! Of course, the owners and staff had Luke's hats and aprons on, all while sporting plaid shirts. Originally they were only supposed to have 250 cups, but they had enough for 500 people.
I am ridiculously excited for F-O-U-R episodes. Of course I wish it was more, but I'm just grateful they made ANY (more) for us to watch. I'm so excited (re: caffeinated) that I've decided to plan a "viewing party" for the big event, in GG fashion! Coffee (or wine), PJs, lots of junk food, and then more junk food! I can't wait!
In Omnia Paratus...AND November 25th!
