Luke Danes brews the best coffee in Stars Hollow—and on October 5, Gilmore Girls fans can sample it in real life. As Entertainment Weekly reports, Netflix is promoting its new four-episode miniseries, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, by converting 200 cafes and coffee shops into Luke’s Diner pop-ups.

Your barista probably won’t be a flannel-clad Scott Patterson, but employees at the pop-up shops across the U.S. and Canada will don “Luke’s Diner” T-shirts and aprons. The first 200 customers will be treated to free 12-ounce cups of coffee (plus, what Netflix bills as a “fun surprise” hidden under their Gilmore Girls-themed coffee sleeves).

Want to live a morning in the lives of Lorelai and Rory? The Luke’s Diner pop-ups will run from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m., and a full list of participating shops is available online (on a mock Stars Hollow town website, no less).
