At long last, “Gilmore Girls” is coming to Carrboro.
In preparation for the "Gilmore Girls" revival release on Netflix on Nov. 25, Johnny’s Gone Fishing will host a Luke’s Diner-inspired event Wednesday.
This event, called Luke's Gone Fishing, references Luke’s Diner, the small-town restaurant that Rory and Lorelai Gilmore frequented in the show, looking for cups of morning coffee.
Susan Siplon, manager of Johnny's Gone Fishing, said Luke's was the type of coffee shop that felt like home and she hopes customers feel that when they walk into this Carrboro coffee shop.
“Just like an old-fashioned community coffee shop, we’re really similar to Luke’s in that way,” she said. “You know everybody. We have our regulars. They know us and likewise.”
