Didn’t read this notice til after I was *finished*, so I had to spend 10 minutes fishing my poops out one by one and transferring them to the wastepaper basket
…and yet, it’s no secret that the Mission’s dreamiest antiques/typewriter shop/performance space is also home to a bathroom that makes people exclaim “I would pay rent to live in there!” upon exiting, and that’s not just because they can’t afford to live anywhere else in the neighborhood anymore.
Now you can share your love for her claw-foot tub, overstuffed armchair and exquisite lighting with the world by voting for this very restroom to win the title of “America’s Best Restroom” from renowned restroom experts(?) Cintas. Check out the other nominees while you’re at it (the old Vaudeville theater in Minneapolis looks pretty sweet) but remember, civic loyalty comes first.
Asked about her favorite interesting SF bathrooms, our pal Elly offers some sage advice:
i would never set foot in FARINA except to piss in their bathroom during a dire bladder moment. which has only happened once, and i was conflicted about even peeing in their bathroom because i see FARINA as a psychogeographic symbol of various things which have been taken from san francisco over the past 7 to 10 years. anyway, the bathroom is upstairs and it’s really opulent.

I will surely keep that in mind, especially now that Dolores Park’s new bathrooms are facing delays. Anyway, here’s a peek inside:
1) It’s really fun to pee into a matrix of ice cubes! It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure at kelvin!
2) $.50 is really cheap for condoms. I wonder if they work.
