This May, I took my first-ever trip to Chicago – a lovely city! One of the crew guys at a theatre there suggested I go to Lou Malnati’s for some deep dish pizza, and I did. It was a great recommendation because the crispy butter-garlic crust and the think melty cheese was fantastic…and they had a remarkable bathroom.
Now, you might look at the pictures and ask “What is so remarkable about this restroom? It seems pretty standard, even unimaginative.” WELL, these photos were taken at a PIZZA JOINT at 11pm on a SATURDAY NIGHT. Do you see a single piece of debris? Any spills or splatters? Any piles of half-used paper towels that landed on the floor and were abandoned by drunk patrons? NO! This bathroom was immaculate. I was shocked. (For any of you who have frequented the bathrooms at the Deli’s on a Saturday night at The College, you know it’s not common to see a high traffic bathroom on a weekend night!) Now, Lou’s is more of a family dining joint; they weren’t serving draft beer by the pitcherful or anything, but still, for a late-night eatery in a city on a Saturday, I have to give the Lincoln Park location major props for their spotless restroom.
