SPECIAL TO THE BEE

“Gilmore Girls” fans – and anybody else, really – can get free coffee Wednesday at Yellow Mug Coffee in north Fresno.

Yellow Mug is the new coffee shop we told you about recently at Champlain Drive and Perrin Avenue, in the same shopping center as Save Mart.

The free coffee will be available from 7 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Oct. 5. The event is sponsored by Netflix, which is celebrating the “Gilmoreversary,” – the date on which “Gilmore Girls” first aired.

And just in case you don’t know the “Gilmore Girls,” know this: It’s a TV show with diehard fans about single mom Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory living in the quaint town of Stars Hollow. They talk really fast, often while drinking coffee at Luke’s Diner. Luke is also Lorelai’s love interest. It ended in 2007.

Netflix is sponsoring the free coffee event because it’s relaunching the show as four 90-minute episodes called “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” Each episode happens during a different season and it will be available on Netflix Nov. 25.

Netflix is “taking over coffee houses all around the country and turning them into Luke’s Diner for the day.” It’s not quite clear what that means, though it sounds like they’ll be Luke’s cups, possibly with surprise under the sleeve and maybe some Luke’s decor, according to this story.
