These holidays, you can have lunch at Lorelai’s house, with all the coffee and Pop Tarts you could ever want.
All I want for Christmas this year is to spend a day in Stars Hollow.
There is no doubt in my mind that Gilmore Girls has played a formative role in shaping who I am today: I talk way too fast, drink black coffee like it’s water and to this day, still consider Milo Ventimiglia (who plays Rory’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Jess on the show) to be my soulmate.
So yes, if given the chance, I would be on the next bus to Stars Hollow, the fictional Connecticut town in which the beloved television show is set. Gilmore Girls follows the unique mother-daughter bond of Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel), and contains addictively fast-paced dialogue, a plethora of pop culture references and a devotion to caffeine and Pop Tarts.
This year marks 12 years since the series finale aired on television. However, like all small screen greats, it remains as much a part of public discourse and pop culture now as it did over a decade ago. So much so that it was rebooted for a four-episode Netflix special, much to the delight of fans (this writer included).
Now, you can visit Stars Hollow yourself for the holidays, thanks to the Gilmore Girls Holiday event at the Warner Bros Studio Tour in Los Angeles. From 21 December 2019 to 5 January 2020, you’ll be able to walk around the fictional town and enjoy “Lunch at Lorelai’s”, which includes a glimpse of the Gilmores’ decorated-house and Luke’s Diner, and to explore the town square, even walking up the stairs of Stars Hollow High School.
The event is included in Warner Bros Studio Tour’s regular Studio Tour, Classics Made Here Tour and Deluxe Tour, which are between three to six hours long. Tickets cost between $69 and $295.
However, the lunch is not included. You can either purchase the ”holiday-style meal” or alternatively, food that featured on the show, such as pizza, burgers, and of course, coffee and Pop-Tarts.
Lorelai and Rory would love it.
