The Key to El Bano

Our crack team of scientists has indeed cracked the first code of El Bano. So what is behind door #1? A key! We knew it! And the key comes with another clue, saying:


El Bano is a secret club, and like all things secret it's only known by few.
To gain access to the club you must first possess a key. You see, first you go into a lovely little bodega and enter the bathroom with your key. You will see a bouncer in the bathroom guarding a stall. You give him the nod and he'll open the door and a wall will slide open revealing the club. Getting a key is easy. If you're our friend you already have one. If you're famous or strikingly beautiful, you already have one. We make mistakes though, and may want to offer you a key.

The plot thickens! Tomorrow, we will bring you a special interview with the secretive El Bano management, who will unveil some more details about their super secret hideaway lounge.

If this place is so "douchey" to you, and I am inclined to agree, then why devote 3 posts to it in less than 24 hours?

DBTH doth protest too much, methinks.

Come on, you're better than that. Leave the toilet to the douche bags.
