No hot stingers here! Viva Yellow Jacket
We were pretty fond of the Yellow Jacket, a newish hipster bar on Austin's East Side with a full coffee menu, taps of luscious beers, booze, a swell staff and authentic Frito pie. And wow, what great rest rooms! We only popped into the women's room but man is it neat in there. All the wood from the place was sourced from older buildings, and the bathroom is trimmed in sturdy twigs. A stone wolf lurks in the larger stall, but serves as a protector, not a threat. A black-and-white photo of a rugged, American football player is nestled into the branches framing the mirror, to further pump one up.
My only complaint would be that the stall without the wolf statue is a bit narrow. This poo blog contributor is 5"10 and a size 14 (real talk!) and turning completely sideways was the only way to fit through the door. Anyone larger will have to use the roomier stall.
Because the beer served here works so well, this blogger accidentally left her phone in the loo. But someone returned it to the bar and the phone was returned! We love cool new bars with excellent. functional bathrooms decorated with re-purposed wood. Yay, Yellow Jacket!
