Dinkytown's Varsity Theater is known for hosting live music, dance performances and weddings. But this week, it's the bathrooms that are creating buzz.

The Star Tribune says the Varsity made the top 10 in America's Best Restroom Contest by Cintas, a major supplier of products for public facilities.

Cintas described the lavish loo as an "Alice In Wonderland-like grotto" with "ornate, gilded mirrors, sassy text plates, and bricks laid as if by a drunken mason on bender."

The company also pointed out that bartenders even serve drinks over the back counter of the restroom area equipped with a lounge that has a view of the stage.

Last year, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis was a finalist in Cintas' competition, but lost to the The Field Museum in Chicago

Online voting ended Thursday. The winner will be announced in late fall.
