The Lexington

The Lexington boasts open mics on Tuesday and Saturday nights.  There are shows there those nights too.  I think the hosts are cool. Idk. Anyway, some say the restroom at the Lexington is fine.  I say it is the most terrifying of all the open mic restrooms.  This debate will continue for all of time.  Now, the reason I dislike the Lexington restroom is not because of the restroom itself (though, we’ll get to that later), the main reason is the automatic, motion-sensored light in the restroom.  Usually I’m all for saving electricity, planet earth, you know, yay!  But in this particular restroom I feel that the motion-sensored light is a detriment.  The women’s restroom is tucked in the back of the Lexington, near the lurking, shadeful smoker hangers-on that tend to be in the back patio of the venue.  I’ve been known to be back there myself (proof that it’s shadeful).  It seems to me that it would be quite easy for someone to slip into the women’s room and hide until the light goes off, either for a prank or with malintent.  Thusly, when this blogger’s bladder is full, it is a matter of severe anxiety to walk into the dark ladies room, hear the door shut and then wildly wave my hands hoping that the motion-sensored light turns on soon.  I believe the issue is that the sensor is too far from the door itself.  Last year, once the lights came on, you would be encouraged to wonder, “who would ever put their mouth on that disgusting painting?   Who would put their mouth on a restroom wall?”  The customers at the Lexington, that’s who.  For those of you who have never been into the ladies’ room at the Lex, as it is fondly called, on one wall of the room there used to be a painting, checkerboard style if my memory serves me.  On some of the checkers were kiss marks from women who had applied lipstick and then pressed their lips to the painting, it seems, for the specific purpose of contracting something very very disgusting, such that they could skip work in a few days.  There was a recent remodel, but they painted everything in there dark colors and it seems just as gross now, if not more so, and honestly I'm not convinced that people aren't still putting their mouths all over the wall, because I mean, I've been there and I know what it's like. As far as the facilities, when they are not littered with toilet paper, they are solid, and I’ve never had a problem using them.  I would NOT sit down on the seat, not sure if that’s the fault of the establishment or the clientele it attracts.  This bathroom terrifies me more than all the other open mic bathrooms.  I hold as long as I can when I'm here.  Convenient to skid row, or skid mark row for some open micers am i right? haha wow I hate myself.  Please see the below quote and photo of Olivia Haidar, to explain what the lexington bathroom is actually like:
