Which, like it or not, is an important part of the dining experience. This local blogger has started to review them for us. At commodenode.blogspot.com the writer reviews different bathrooms I encounter, based on the following criteria:
~ Cleanliness: No explanation needed.
~ Privacy: Single occupancy, or multiple?
~ Flushing: Is there a lever, knob, or button? Is there one of those sensors that does it automatically?
~ Dryers: Paper towels or heat-based dryers?
~ Mirrors: Can you see most or your body in the mirrors, or will you risk dragging a piece of toilet paper back into the establishment on your shoe?
~ Music: Is there sound coming through on the overhead speakers, or are you left alone with your shame in a loud, echo-filled chamber of flatulence?
~ Reviewer Tilt: The “wild card” category.
Now, as you might assume, most of the bathrooms reviewed will be at restaurants. However, don’t rule out malls, retail stores, or Quik-E-Marts.
The Final Dish: Check it out for yourself and be prepared for what you’re in for when it comes to the bathroom at your next dining spot.
