Upvote/Downvote: David Ortiz, Pop-Up Diners And Much More Travel News

Tourists were stuck 300 feet in the air, David Ortiz popped some piñatas and we had a week in travel news that was simply bananas.

Here is our brief breakdown of all the stories you never knew you wanted to read, which is chockablock filled with delicious and captivating fare.

Yummy Prison Fare:

Singapore is getting the perfect way to ring in a new season of “Orange Is The New Black” outside of binge watching the first three seasons.

It will host a prison-style pop-up dedicated to the show.

Upvote: Just looking at the menu has us itching to make some show-styled food for our own release party.

Papi Popping Piñatas:

David Ortiz brought out the lumber for JetBlue’s newest hysterical commercial, which features the Red Sox star absolutely destroying piñatas.

Upvote: Actually, we could stand to watch Ortiz take his bat on the road and annihilate random objects. This is a reality-TV show idea we can get behind.


The above image features a young boy and an older woman in red who don't know each other at the moment.

Some 16 years later that boy would marry that woman’s daughter.

Upvote: Our mind is completely blown. However, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened.

Well, That’s Unfortunate:

Stuart Boyd just wanted a passport to travel to Greece. What he got back was an Adolf Hitler doppelganger in the place of his photo.

Downvote: We obviously downvote this kind of mistake. But we absolutely love how the passport office handled this mess.

Long Way Down:

As that Twitter photo shows, tourists were stranded for over an hour 300 feet in the air when a Carowinds ride broke down from a power failure.

Downvote: As the report states, it took an hour and 40 minutes for workers to manually lower the ride. This is roughly an hour and 35 minutes past our threshold.
