Carol writes, “Creighton’s goal was to get to Seattle. The picture below was taken at a relative’s home just outside Seattle and proved to be the turning point for our trip. Fortunately, there were still more ladies room pictures to find on the trip back home! If you’re interested, I blogged about other aspects of this trip here–proving I didn’t just take pictures of potties along the way.”

  1. The Bitter Creek Ale House men’s room boy looks like a heavier version of Mannekin Pis, in Brussels – a statue/fountain which is dressed in hundreds of outfits. Not to be outdone, females are represented by a modern sculpture, Jeanneke Pis, a little girl squatting and urinating. Somehow she lacks his whimsy!


  2. I lived down the street from Worden’s Deli when I was in grad school! Actually, back then, Worden’s was on the other side of the street. Along with the new digs on the other side of the street, they’ve added a nice(r) selection of wines. Quite an improvement from the old booze and snacks establishment!
