Dreams are coming true for girls across the country who grew up in the early 2000’s and saw a little bit of themselves in Rory Gilmore.
After a nine-year hiatus, Gilmore Girls is returning for a Netflix revival with the original cast in November. To celebrate the comeback and the show’s original air date 16 years ago, Netflix converted hundreds of coffee shops across the United States and Canada into Luke’s Diner — a regular hangout on the show.
Purple Door Coffee in Five Points — and the only transformed Luke’s in Denver — had a line down the block with people waiting hours for a free cup of coffee and to get a little taste of Stars Hollow, Connecticut.
Swung by Luke's Diner this morning on the way to work! Coffee, pastries, and a no cell phone sign! Everyone seems excited to see Lane's band play next month, and heated debates about Jess/Dean/Logan are in full swing! Sadly, no Kirk this morning. #HappyBirthdayGilmore #Netflix #GilmoreGirls Thanks for getting up early and doing something amazing with me @stefeire – love you babe! Thanks to @purpledoorcoffee for hosting. Those poor baristas had NO IDEA what they were getting in to! 😀 A woman in front of us gave them a 100$ tip! #GoodPeople
What a fun experience! I don't think Lorelai would have waited in line for two hours for coffee (ok – let's face it, she'd never have to), but I sure did appreciate the fresh brew and big breakfast once I got through the door. The Purple Door staff was on their game (and dressed like Luke, to boot). #gilmoregirls #Lukes Thank you @netflix for the free brew and bringing back our favorite #gilmores in November!
