I live close enough to Cup-A-Joe that after a few coffees, I’ll just walk home and use my own damn bathroom. But it was raining when I was hanging there a few days ago with humin and evarels, and I really had to go. Like, I’ll explode in a cloud of urine if I were to hold it any longer.

So I cautiously opened the door and was pleasantly surprised by the bathroom’s cleanliness and this artwork on the walls. I recognized the Nob Hill Police guy by Tenderloin artist D Young V, but I have no idea what the rest of these creatures are. They remind me of Alice in Wonderland, especially the one puffing a pipe with butterflies coming out of it. Don’t know what PETA would have to say about that, but it looks pretty cool to me.

So, dear Tender Readers, what are your favorite bathrooms in the Tenderloin/TenderNob?

We just found a great photoset showing the four artists (Chris Blackstock, Rex Waters, D Young V, and Jeff Bruton) working on the bathroom mural at Cup-A-Joe, so you can get a “making of” glimpse of the artwork.
