If you (like me) spent last weekend and this past week binge watching season 2 of Orange is the New Black, then you’re probably having withdrawals. Are we really suppose to wait till 2015 for the new season?

Like Crazy Eyes threw a pie at Piper Chapman, Netflix is throwing pies at you this week.

The streaming service opened up a food truck in New York City on Thursday, called “Crazy Pyes.” The truck has two different free Orange is the New Black-themed treats: crazy pyes and chocolate-and-vanilla swirl ice cream. It’s Piper and Crazy Eyes together again.

Crazy Eyes, played by Uzo Aduba, is a well-known character on OITNB. Not only does she have “crazy” bulging eyes that make her distinct- but she is funny and crazy in a good way on the show.

Check out the truck and treats for Twitter user @BAHjournalist:

The building around it was covered in OITNB ads – including cardboard cutouts of the cast. Looking to get yourself some free crazy pyes – you’ll probably be in line awhile.

The truck will make several stops across NYC, including:

  • Thursday, June, 12 (4-8 p.m.): Broome Street (and West Broadway)
  • Friday, June 13 (4-8 p.m.): 23rd Street (near the Flatiron Building)
  • Saturday, June 14 (2-6 p.m.): Williamsburg on North 7th Street
  • Sunday, June 15 (1-5 p.m.): West side of Central Park (near Columbus Circle)

The second season of OITNB will end the year as our most-watched original series ever and, as with each of our other previously launched originals, enjoys an audience comparable with successful shows on cable and broadcast TV,” reads the third-quarter letter signed by CEO Reed Hastings and CFO David Wells.

Are you planning to brave the lines for some free pyes and ice cream?
