Storm the prison this Bastille Day (with cake!), at Eastern State Penitentiary

If you’re in or around Philly this week, stop by Eastern State Penitentiary, where Marie Antoinette will be letting us eat Tastykakes (Butterscotch Krimpets, to be exact) by tossing 2,000+ of those Pennsylvania treats from one of the prison towers. There are a bunch of other Bastille Day-themed events planned for the occasion, like special restaurant menus, re-enactments, and movie screenings.

As Ms. Pie said, why are we not gonna be there for this?
