how about a little go go action?

Let's take this blog in a slightly different direction for a bit and take a look at where folks "go" in restaurants. I don't know about ladies rooms but the set up in mens rooms can be pretty interesting, especially the urinals. There are some good ones around town. This time let's take a look at the mens room at Liuzza's on Bienville in Mid City.

Before we get to that, we can mention the menu. Liuzza's is one of just a handful of places in town that serve fried pickles. Mmmm....deep fried crispy breaded dill pickle slices.

They are also one of the few places to get a vegetarian po' boy that isn't just cheese. Their Italian breaded eggplant po' boy is quite tasty (but get it without the red gravy to keep it vegetarian).

And they have a frozen drink machine that makes a drink called the Bush Whacker, kinda like a frozen white russian daiquiri. They will give you a sample for free (perfect for lunchtime when you have to go back to work).

So, the urinal in Liuzza's mens room is basically a large drain in the floor by the wall filled with ice. The ice melts and helps flush down know. And about 4 or 5 feet above the drain on the wall is a water pipe that management can turn on to rinse off the wall. Oh yeah, the floor and walls are made of tile.

i want fried pickles! delish. with what condiment do they pair it? there's this diner in lafayette that serves it with ranch dressing. not bad.

i prefer ketchup with a little hot sauce.

magazine street po boy also serves 'em.

there, one can buy a melted cheese po boy and a side of fried pickles and the make one's own fried pickle po boy.

hmmmm well the urinal story is interesting. i like to hear about unique designs of mundane everyday things and all... but the pickles! mmmmm! i've only had that once and i was so skeptical! then surprised. but they were whole small dill pickles. slices makes more sense. as does ranch on the side which i didn't have. and in a vegetarian-ized po-boy? genius. sounds so much more appetizing than a french fry po-boy.
p.s. hi duck, how ya doing?

I'm not sure I would make it in that little potty valley. I would definitely dribble.
