This may be where you may think I am jumping into the fray and pushing for one side or the other in the political races. WRONG! You should know by know how disgusted I am with the half truths and the bloviating promises that all candidates are involved in.
No I am picking up on a article that my friend Beccy Tanner had in the Wichita Eagle last week about one of my favorite places in Kansas, Lucas.
Not only is Lucas famous for the Garden of Eden and quirky artists, (and ring bologna). They have the BOWL PLAZA public toilet. Now one thing that is a huge problem when you have a lot of tourists is that the availability of toilets is pretty critical. Many of the old buildings are not up to the standards or capacity that streams of visitors put them under.
Lucas utilized their artist community and designed a public toilet that is bringing it’s own tourists. Not only well designed it is comfortable and so much in the design that you spend more time looking than doing your business.
Now you can vote to have the Bowl Plaza named number one, in number one and two, in the nation. The Bowl is in the top ten in contest sponsored by Cintas (a company that designs restrooms) in the nation. You simple need to go to www.bestrestrooms.com and vote.
The competition? American Girl Place – Chicago, The Fabulous Fox Theater – St. Louis, the Tiki Lounge – Pittsburgh, and six other hoity toity restrooms.
The town residents decided in 2008 that there was a pressing need for a facility like this. They spent four years raising the money and design it. It is by far the blingiest toilet in Kansas.
SO GET ON LINE AND VOTE. YOU HAVE UNTIL OCT 31 TO VOTE IN THE CONTEST. LETS GET OUT THERE AND FLUSH OUT THE VOTE!!!!!
