The Roadside Bar and Grille, Duck, NC

If you ever make it to the Outer Banks, you MUST go to the Roadside Bar and Grille.  The food is incredible – it’s fine dining in the most down-to-earth, warm little place you could hope to find.  I ate the best scallops of my life there.  The owner was delightful and the whole experience was memorable, years after my trip.

And, of course, their bathroom was on-theme.  From the sweet little sign on the door to the glass inset in the window panes, it was just as inviting and unique as the rest of the restaurant.  I certainly wasn’t expecting the shower curtain “doors” to the stalls, though!  It’s not quite the same secure feeling as a door, but it works!

Great food, cocktails, and fun bathroom door!
Notice the signs directing you there…you can see then from the entire length of the bar.

Hokkaido Sushi Bar, Norfolk, VA

Happy New Year! No doubt, you are all experiencing the excitement of a fresh start in 2015. My resolution is to bring you more notable restrooms this year – so hold me to that, readers!

To celebrate the new year and the exciting play I’m working on at Virginia Stage Company, I bring you a bathroom from the city of Norfolk.

Hokkaido ushers you into the restroom hallway with a flashy beaded curtain. The first things you notice upon entering are the unusual sinks.
I enjoy the pipes suspended from the ceiling that run over the stalls. I also appreciate the orientation of the toilets relative to each other; know that if you’re in the small stall, there is someone sitting right behind you!

Readers, I love getting your links to articles about bathrooms and your photos of restrooms, often from far-off places. Keep them coming!

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding Day Porta-Potties!

Her temporary porta-potties are nicer than the bathroom in my house, and I think that’s all that needs to be said.
