"...break the prison rules and you go to Alcatraz."
Right now, on the first page of the site, there's a 1946 Alcatraz Prison menu for a week's meals.  Experts said this was an impossible prison from which to escape because the frigid waters surrounding the island would kill any escapee within an hour.  
When the prison was occupied, a mattress would have been squeezed into the wooden planks on the right of the cell.
Still, if you had to be stuck there in one of the tiny cells, you would eat well. Meat croquettes with bechamel sauce for dinner, anyone?
