Zombie-themed Restaurant to Open in Tokyo

Zombies, those ubiquitous monsters of post-millennial culture, are often thought to be symptoms of the deathly drive towards consumerism within late capitalist society.  But with the opening of a Zombie-themed restaurant in Toyko, Japan, on 13 July 2012, zombie consumerism will take a disturbingly literal turn.  Based on the zombie apocalypse figured in the Resident Evil computer game, the cafe, called Biohazard Cafe and Grill S.T.A.R.S restaurant, is bound to rake in ghoulish patrons from across the world.  For an interesting article on the cafe, as well as a link to a video preview, click here.
