“Please, Luke, please, please, please…”

Save thy “pleases” as your wishes have been answered.

Yes, the rumours are true; you can actually eat lunch at Lorelai Gilmore’s house in Stars Hollow.

Unfortunately, the real Stars Hollow doesn’t exist, but a trip to the Warner Brothers set of the imaginary Stars Hollow would be an adequate alternative.

As Lorelai, herself once so famously said: “reality has no place in our world”.

From December 21st until January 5th, 2020, superfans can visit the set of the iconic TV series, Gilmore Girls,  amble through the town square, see Luke’s diner in the flesh and finish up with a festive meal at Lorelai’s house.

Featuring visits to some of the show’s most famous locations including the town gazebo.

Promising a “holiday-themed lunch filled with Lorelai’s favourites” - no specifics are given but that could range from pizza to pop-tarts to Chinese food (with vegetarian and gluten-free meals also available). All sound good in my book.

The second year of the tour, this year includes an added photo stop outside of Luke’s Diner where you can pose and imagine going in for a cup of coffee and a cherry Danish.

Having recently restarted Gilmore Girls, I can safely say that I love it just as much this time around. Are you team Dean, Jess or Logan though?
