The Scrawl on the Wall

The saltiest popcorn ever. Amber Boch.

I wouldn't necessarily stop into Grassroots if I needed to go and was already in the neighborhood, but it's not the worst option on St. Mark's. If you're passing by there early in the day, there's no bouncer at the door to judge you for rushing to the toilet shortly after entering.

Stumble through the dark, wood-paneled bar room to the bathrooms on the right-hand wall(next to the juke box).

The women's room is pretty nasty. The toilet paper is hung from a chain on the ceiling. If you can somehow claw some off of the roll while sitting, you're going to be disappointed. It feels like someone removed a ply. An impressive quantity is required to clean up at all.

There's also some sort of moist sink hole or crater in the first stall. They have cheap, vinyl flooring masking it. If you're careless your foot will plunge into it while you're on the toilet.

If you make it out alive, be sure to eat a bowl of their amazing $1 popcorn and wash away the memory of your terrible poop with cheap pitchers of beer.

BONUS: Hilarious graffiti. Someone keeps writing "Welcome to the Dickhouse" on the doors and walls.
