Why Don't These Guys Save Time . . .

Posted by EMark, Oct 15, 2013.

. . . and just burn their money. 

Sorry, folks, no wine discussion, here.  Feel free to ignore this one.

This definitely falls under the category of people having more money than brains.  These clowns have opened a restaurant with a bathroom theme.

Beware, if you check it out, there is no "Undo."  It will be burned into your memory.

New Restaurant in City of Industry.

Come on man, that's edgy. If you don't like it that just means you're square.

Sheesh. Even I know that much.

But these people aren't all that avant. Missed it by like 30 years.

Many years ago there was a strip joint in Detroit called The John. All around the stage the seats were toilet seats. They were also hung on the wall like trophies. And at the bar, they were also toilet seats. It was a dive biker bar, frequented mostly by obese bikers who usually needed 2 seats, one for each half of their ass.

The first Restaurant I've seen with a toilet theme was in Taipei where all the food is served in small toilet bowls.

The seats are also toilet bowls. Very offputting.

Wow, Roli, I knew travel was broadening, but I think I would have drawn the line at the door!

I am amazed to see this, I have never ever expected this or imagined that there could be something like this. It is definitely unique and I am sure it would be a hit with some folks and at the same time others will not like it. It is their own property and they can make whatever they want without a second thought.

LOL! I wasn't actually there FOXALL my friend. I saw this on one of the myriad food shows on t.v. Man was I disgusted. It was funny to find out that some patrons after ordering their food can't actually eat it because they are so grossed out..

Y'know, they could make the house wine--a nice orange and apple pruno--right on site.  So it is wine related.  Tried to find a good photo of toilet-made pruno, but since they don't allow cameras in jails, not easy to come by.  Lots of home-brew examples, but people opt for the mixing bowl when they have a choice.  Cowards!

Lol - just reading this now. Loved the colorful reference to Chicago's "The John", GdP! Too bad they're closed - it's the kind of place I would have liked to visit. (Yes, you could argue that too much curiosity is not necessarily a good thing.)  Now I can only dream of what such a bizarre scenario is really like. :) 

Lucky for me there seems to be no shortage of toilet theme restaurants. I also found pics of the food in mini toilets pretty offputting. The ice cream looks most bothersome.

And FOX - thank-you!! I had no idea that pruno existed. Intrigued by your post, I did manage to find a photo. And a recipe!  (Even though I assume the relative quantities of ingredients probably don't matter so much if you're making pruno in a prison.) Speaking of assumptions, I guess this means that just watching "Orange is the New Black" doesn't make me prison savvy.    :)

As long as they keep the seats down (SMH)
