Pub, state reach compromise over confusing bathroom signs

The bathroom humor at McGuire's Irish Pubs in Destin and Pensacola will stay.

The owners will have to make some changes to restrooms, in a deal with the state.

Regulars have known for years to read the fine print on the restroom signs. The bathroom marked "Ladies" is actually for the guys. The opposite is true for the so-called "Men's" room.

The state had threatened to close the Destin and Pensacola taverns for lack of proper signs. Now, in a compromise, McGuire's has agreed to install a second set of restroom doors to prevent any embarrassing incidents.

The gag signs can stay on the outer doors. But the doors leading from an alcove to the actual restrooms must be properly marked. McGuire's has 30 days to install the new doors.
