Royal Flush


Love the beach but hate public restrooms? Fear not the Santa Monica Pier, whose johns are of the top ten finalists in this year’s “America’s Best Restroom” contest. Judges cited the washroom’s ocean theme and “undulating roof form that evokes thoughts of a vintage wooden roller coaster or ocean waves” as worthy of the honor, which was created by Cintas in 2002.

Think the Pier’s restroom deserves the title? Vote through August 31 and our very own local hero could win a plaque of recognition and a place in America’s Best Restroom “Hall of Fame” section of the program’s Web site.
