The Scrawl on the Wall

Emack & Bolios. Feeling: Surprised, relieved.

Newbury St. is a veritable toilet desert. Most people would consider me a brazen and shameless squatter, but even I feel sheepish when some elitist shop clerk sneers at me for asking to use the bathroom. (I'm looking at you, Sandra from Saks Fifth Avenue). Trident Booksellers & Cafe may just be the only place for blocks where you can piss-and-run without feeling like a low-class masshole.

Don't even make eye contact with the employees. They seem to have an anything goes bathroom policy here, no need to explain yourself. Walk straight through the door and past the registers, magazines and greeting cards. Before you enter the books section, you will see two restrooms on the right. During their breakfast and dinner rush there will likely be a wait. The local vagrant population has known about the Trident for years and are not shy about using and abusing their john. Be prepared to vie with them for control and use of a toilet. Along with your competitive spirit, it might be prudent to keep some Purell on hand. The facilities are frequently short on soap and TP.

Keep in mind that this a high-traffic crapper. If I really needed to drop a deuce, I would hesitate to use this restroom unless I was prairie doggin' it. A needy patron or sever is going to be banging on the door within minutes if you linger.

What I Did in Here: Peed, listened to the employees complain about their jobs.
