A dating location recommendation: the Tribeca Grand.
Yes, I was there, and it’s pretty cool to look at, though the tables are uncomfortable. The reason I recommend it is because I really would like a full report on the men’s restroom.
See, I was there, and my date came back from his pit stop genuinely impressed. He said something about the sinks being ubercool. Later, on my way to my own nose-powdering, I asked a guy if the bathrooms were that way. “Yep!” he enthused. “Fountain, toilets, and all.”
There was no fountain in the ladies’. It was very nicely done, don’t get me wrong. The three-way mirrors over the sinks were thoughtful, if pointless. Why put in the mirrors if you’re going to position them so that nobody can actually use them to see the back of their heads?
Also, the sinks were just sinks.
The unremarkableness of the sinks and lack of ‘fountain’ led me to wonder if the ‘john’ wasn’t nicer than the ‘jane.’ I would have peeked in to check, but social taboo kept me out. I wouldn’t want to keep my gentleman waiting.
So I encourage future gentleman callers to take their dates to the Tribeca Grand and let me know what it looks like down there.
Your date will understand when you explain.
“How would you like to go to the Grand? I’ve heard the bathrooms there are amazing.”
