Welcome to the Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria - courtesy of Netflix Asia, to promote the launch of #OITNB Season 4 #WelcomeToLitchfield
"First time in the system? Don’t ask for a menu, eat the chef’s special and leave a glowing review. Now get in line at the Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria and wait your turn. Before she changes her mind and decides to let you starve.As a promotion for the launch of Season 4 of "ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK" television series on Netflix, the folks at Netflix Asia has "converted" a local restaurant to look like the prison cafeteria, complete with inmates dressed in prison-orange, in this pop-up event!
16 & 17 June only. Walk-ins available."
The restaurant in question is "OverEasy" (Address @ 541 Orchard Road, #01-01 Liat Towers, Singapore 238881), and the food is FREE. Folks can book their place here online, or you can attempt to "Walk-In" and try your luck. (PROMOTIONS: "Check under the trays. Don't let the guards see you".)
Regardless of the food, I hope the organizers put a "live" chicken running about the gated compound tho! Would've been a "perfect" nod to the first season lol
I personally think it's a pretty "fun" way to promote the show, especially to locals here who might choose "food" over a fictional television show (I loved it, doesn't mean everyone else does :p) … but seems not necessarily everyone felt the same was as I did…
"Author of the memoir Orange Is The New Black: My Year In A Women's Prison Piper Kerman has called a Singaporean prison-themed dining event "repulsive", but diners whom The Straits Times spoke to at the event on June 16 afternoon were unfazed."
