A Meal in a Jail Cell: And you don't have to be Arrested
9/26/2012 (Updated 11:15:43 PM)Ever have a meal in jail?
If you've always wanted to, you can-- in Owego--without even being arrested:
Just go to the Calaboose Grille--with or without a police escort.
It had a grand opening Wednesday-- for those who were more interested in breaking in, than breaking out:
The building is located at 176 Main street in Owego, which is located inside the historic Tioga County Jail Building.
A lot of the interior was left intact-- including a jail cell that can be your dining room:
"People outside of this community need to know that Owego is thriving and surviving and by opening a new business, not reopening a business, but opening a new business I think tells everybody else that, hey, there are people with faith in Owego," said Clark Hepwork, the co-owner of Calaboose Grille.
The owner also says that the jail appeals to both kids and adults.
