Drinking Coffee Like a Gilmore!
Fans of the popular television series, “Gilmore Girls,” were delighted on Oct. 5 to visit Borjo Coffeehouse on Monarch Way and drink coffee like a Gilmore.
Borjo was one of three coffee shops within the Hampton Roads area selected for a special, one-day promotion to be transformed into Luke’s Diner from the hit show that aired from 2000-07. The pop-up diners included free coffee to the first 200 people, T-shirts, branded aprons and other surprises.
Netflix transformed a total of 200 coffee shops across the country in anticipation of the reunion show, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” which will be released Nov. 25. The revival will be presented in four, 90-minute chapters.
To further hype the show’s return, on Oct. 25, Netflix dropped a 140-second teaser trailer, which continues to follow Lorelei and Rory Gilmore along with unforgettable characters that reside in the fictional town of Stars Hollow.
