We Tried to Get Coffee at Luke’s for Gilmore Girls’ Birthday. But the Line Was INSANE

This morning, local coffee shop Three Fifty Bakery was dressed up like the diner Luke’s from Gilmore Girls (apparently, it’s the 16th anniversary of the series’ original  air date).

I spied a Luke’s sign, Luke’s coffee sleeves, so many selfies, and a whole lot of people who are going to be late for work.

Most mornings getting my coffee takes 5 minutes. Today, I go thirsty.
