Really gotta go? You might just have to hold it if you're at Mildred's Temple Kitchen in Toronto come this Valentine's Day. According to the Toronto Star, the upscale restaurant is advertising not its food, but its bathrooms as the place to be this holiday weekend.
"We've always had little trysts in our bathrooms," says chef/co-owner Donna Dooher, pointing to lingering weekday lunches as a popular time. "We're taking it to the next level on Valentine's weekend."
The restaurant's four bathrooms light up outside when occupied. Staff have learned to watch the light flicker twice when two customers enter the same bathroom, usually a few minutes apart.
Toronto Public Health says as long as there's no sex in the kitchen and the restaurant keeps its washrooms clean and sanitized, it's not fussed. "As far as bodily fluids, it's pretty much similar to the other human functions going on in there," says Jim Chan, manager of the food safety program.
Check it out --- the bathroom (pillows, candles ...) actually looks nicer than the average bedroom. And if bathroom trysts aren't your bag, the restaurant is also offering to arrange for "fuzzy handcuffs" to be left at your table. Awesome.
