The poo blog goes ON TOUR to the often grim, slightly dangerous, but not uncharming Atlantic City, New Jersey.

We love A.C. for the gaming, drinking, and its boardwalk, rife with feral cats, novelty gifts and hawkers inviting you to learn more about vacation timeshares. We can't go to A.C. and not visit the Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum of oddities and curios - mostly creative taxidermy and torture implements from the German and Spanish empires. We were midway through the tour when a museum staffer urged us to check out the bathrooms. At first we were all, "Is the poo blog *this* well-known?" Then we realized that the can at Ripley's is like everything else in the place - an opportunity for a gag. We loved the farting noises running continuously, and the bulls-eyes on the urinals are a nice touch. We only wish Ripley's ultimate bathroom gag - a door marked "-MENS" which opens part-way to reveal an anamatronic male figure peeing as a tape plays, "HEY! CLOSE THE DOOR!" was easily photographed. Either way - Ripley's museum and loos should be on every poo blog fan's master list of destination terlets. - Butter


For out-of-this world sushi, you have to go to Uchi. The food is incredible - amazing flavor profiles, the freshest ingredients, prepared by world-renowned chefs. Chef Tyson Cole even competed on Iron Chef, against Morimoto! And true to form, Uchi's restrooms are every bit as elegant and hospitable as the restaurant itself. While the ladies' room only has two stalls, we noticed more than two women can manage to squeeze in for a little girl-talk, making Uchi's loo something of a clown car. It can magically fit as many people that decide they have to be in there! Just another reason to check out Uchi
and be amazed. - Butter

Wow, were we ever surprised at Red 7's awesome renovations. The place feels huge, less awkward than before, and perfectly Commie/Soviet Russia themed. The women's bathroom is almost elegant with gold walls and cute light fixtures, but there it is, scrawled in black marker on black paint: Graffiti that reads "ASSHOLE." The terlets themselves work fine, and there's even a "handicapped" stall if you like to pee in groups. For the Red River/6th St District, you could do a lot worse!

we snuck into Salvation Pizza (we almost stole the Golden Boys/Hex
Dispenser gig poster hanging up outside!) to check out their
bathrooms, and boy are they ever snazzy. The stencils painted onto
their tables in the dining rooms also flew into their loos! Lots of
privacy and tons of cute stuff to look at - and even a smart-ass sign
on the urinal! Pretty perfect.

We kept a pal company during her lengthy session at Triple Crown
Tattoo and found pure joy and total perfection in their bathroom. It's
so clean, we'd birth babies in there. In a shocking twist, when we
asked to photograph said loo for the blog, the tattooists at Triple
Crown so love their bathroom that they've already used it in a photo
shoot for a national magazine! And they said they would love it if
theirs became a "destination bathroom"! Talk about brilliant! To us,
it makes perfect sense. A tattoo shop should be meticulously clean -
all of it, not just the can - and Triple Crown is. Also, the shop has
no flash hanging up, just tattoo art on the walls, and the john has
some of the cutest work, including cocks fighting (hence the name),
and, a painting we love so much, "Two Pugs, One Cup."
Triple Crown Tattoo is mostly an appointment-only shop and doesn't get a ton of walk-in traffic, so the average joe or jane doe may not have a chance to stop in and use the facilities. But keep an eye open for an art opening or special event, go, be polite, and use that terlet.
You'll be so glad you did.
