Fort Lauderdale, FL

This is a great American city filled with mega-yachts, beautiful people and fun places to eat, drink and relax. Here are a few of the best and worst places to go in Fort Lauderdale.

National Car Rental Center

The National Car Rental Center (aka the "Rentah Centah") is a newer facility that regularly houses the NHL's Florida Panthers ice hockey team. Situated in Sunrise, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, the NCRC was constructed out of a dispute between former Panthers owner H. Wayne Huizenga (who also owns the Dolphins and formerly the Marlins) and Micky Arison, the Carnival Cruise owner and owner of the Miami Heat. The two couldn't get together to share one new arena so South Florida got two new arenas.

That being said, the toilet situation of the NCRC is quite interesting. The first observation is the shear number and close proximity of restrooms for both men and women. Upon entering, the facility is strictly arena fare but with some touches. The highlight is the plastic trays above each urinal and in each stall for patrons' drinks. Very nice touch. The stalls are ordinary with press board dividers and normal vessels. Privacy and user friendliness are average. The one drawback was the relatively few number of stalls per restroom. The average was six, which seems like enough except they were always full (shy urinators?). Also, they seemed to have stuck strictly to the book on handicrapping stalls.

Overall, we give them an A for effort but a C for execution for a score of 3 rolls.

Lockhart Stadium

Plenty of stalls with good privacy mark the highlights of this functional facility. Plain but reasonably clean, it would do in a pinch. Watch out for day games in Summer where the non-airconditioned crappers can get a little gamey when folks forget to flush. All in all, a 2.5 rating.

The Elbo Room

One of the Mystery Crappers favorite places to hang out, eat and drink. Always a good time. The Elbo Room was established in 1938 and has been a Ft. Lauderdale landmark for sixty years. The only thing separating the bar and the Atlantic Ocean is a two lane one way road. Due to its friendly atmosphere and desirable location, there is no secret to why this cozy watering hole has been extremely popular. Web Site

Revolution

This live music venue catering to the numetal crowd is a decent place to see a show. A couple of stalls with decent privacy. The presence of not one, but two bathroom attendants that help you wash your hands is a big drawback.

San Loco

Visit this place for good Mexican food cheap. Bartenders and waitresses are very friendly. Toilets are clean accessible. Drawbacks include only one stall which may be occupied by a urinator as there is only one urinal. Big gaps in the stall bring privacy scores down.
