Have you binge-watched all of Orange Is the New Black yet? If you have, there’s no need to go into withdrawal quite yet: A OITNB-themed food truck is hitting the streets.

The “Crazy Pyes” truck — in honor of, you guessed it, Crazy Eyes (the intense but well-meaning character played by actress Uzo Aduba) — will travel around N.Y.C. serving free fruit-filled hand pies.

Why pies? Well, who could forget Crazy Eyes’ cafeteria outburst from season 1? She did throw her pie for her “prison wife” Piper, after all. The truck will also serve chocolate and vanilla swirl soft serve in honor of the character’s infamous sing-songy line: “Chocolate and vanilla swi-irl…swi-irl.”

You can find the truck on the streets of New York starting Thursday and going through the weekend. Here’s the full schedule:

Thursday, June 12, 4–8pm: Broome Street and West Broadway
Friday, June 13, 4–8pm: Broadway between 22nd and 23rd Streets
Saturday, June 14, 2–6pm: North 7th Street in Williamsburg
Sunday, June 15, 1–5pm: Columbus Circle

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
