Diner is honored for its lovely loo

ST. LOUIS, MO — The Fountain on Locust in midtown won this year''s America''s Best Restroom contest sponsored by Cintas Corporation, according to the Post-Dispatch.
Online voters catapulted Joy Grdnic Christensen''s retro diner ahead of facilities in bigger-name locations such as Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas and Bryant Park in New York, the article noted.
"It just shows that a little, no-budget, recycled bathroom can beat out places with teams of contractors and architects," said Grdnic Christensen.
The paint and fixtures in the Fountain''s spotless, black-tiled, mirrored restrooms came from a Habitat for Humanity ReStore outlet, the article stated.
Grdnic Christensen credited the honor to the Fountain''s customers who answered her call to vote for her bathrooms once the 10 finalists were posted at
