Fans of the popular show "Gilmore Girls" can now visit Luke's Diner in real life.

Ahead of the show's anticipated four-episode revival, Netflix will be sponsoring a one-day conversion of approximately 250 cafes into the series' most recognizable dining spot, according to Eater.

On Wednesday, October 5, coffee shops and cafes across the United States, including San Diego, will be transformed into the popular eatery. Netflix will be providing the shops with "all the Luke's Diner essentials" including branded aprons and T-shirts.

Oct. 5 is the 16th anniversary of the series' original pilot airdate. The revival of the series will be released November 25 on Netflix.

The pop-ups will run from 7 a.m. to noon. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as supplies of free coffee will be limited.

Two San Diego locations will be partaking in the Stars Hollow nostalgia. Check out the map below for where you need to be early on Wednesday.
