Pit Stops: The International Graduate University
Part of an occasional series on restrooms of interest. Peed anywhere neat recently? Let me know: email@example.com
The paintings on the walls, chandeliers on the ceilings, and ancient president Walter Boek aren't the only things that feel oddly antique about the International Graduate University, the not-quite-legitimate Capitol Hill educational institution that's now fighting a massive tax bill. The bathrooms also feel straight out of the 1970s, with plastic petunias, patterned tablecloths, and sinks they don't sell anymore at Bed Bath & Beyond. But they're squeaky clean and functional—perhaps due to the fact that they're not used much—and have some handy hand lotion for those weary fingers. Too bad you can't stop in and take a leak there when you need it.
