Hooray! El Rio Plans to Build More Bathrooms!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

El Rio is one of my favorite bars in SF. Besides the fact that I’ve had countless amazing nights and afternoons there, it’s also where my wife and I had our first kiss. We even had our wedding party there!

But besides my personal relationship with the place, El Rio has been there for all of us SOOO many times. Whether its a fundraiser for members of the community, a kick-ass backyard, daytime dance party, or just a night of dive bar drinking, El Rio has been looking after us since 1978.

The one complaint many of us have though, is that the line for the bathrooms can get really long. That’s because there just aren’t enough of them. And El Rio want to fix that, but they need your help.

Here’s a little bit from the GoFundMe:

To know us is to love us, and to love us is to get zen about our bathroom lines. 2023 BABIES. We are entering a NEW ERA here at El Rio. We hope to add two new bathrooms (one accessible bathroom and one two-stall bathroom) to our current setup to help alleviate some of the pressure on our existing and excellent toilets and some of the pressure on your existing and excellent bladders.
The current predicted cost is $250,000.
YEEEEOUCH.
But the best news is that we have a donor, AN ABSOLUTE ANGEL, who will match every cent raised!
So we are looking to our beloved community to help raise $125,000.
We hope to begin work in early January of 2023 and finish construction by the end of February.

So help El Rio help you!
