From reader Candace, who found this sign at a dive bar in Charlestown, South Carolina. Neither she nor her husband can remember the name of the bar. Sounds like they had a pretty good time!

As I stood in front of the ladies room at Maggiano’s at Southpoint Mall in Durham, North Carolina, a woman said, “You must being doing something arty.” I explained that I photograph interesting ladies room doors for my blog. “I like this bumpy glass,” I told her.

On the way out she said, “Why don’t you take the back of the door too?” So I did!

  1. Some more good ones! Now, when I see normal, everyday bathroom signs I think, “Gee, with a little more effort you could have something special!” Of course I haven’t relayed that thought to any of the owners! 🙂

  2. I just love this series. I have to start snapping! There is an Indian restaurant I go to that inside one of the restrooms is a TV screen showing street foods in India. First time I went in I had to watch the whole segment. I came out and my sister asked if I was alright. I told her and she went to have a view. The other rest room is just plain rest room inside.
