Where is the BEST napkin in Watauga?

LewisvilleHounder Aug 26, 2013 06:08 PM

I have been to many high end places in Dallas and while I like the starchy white napkin sometimes I just long for a different color or shape. I am even on the search for interesting napkin rings or holders. Can you tell me the best place in Watauga that I can find a good or interesting napkin, rings or holder?

      That is the weirdest post.. lol. I thought you were joking when I saw the headline about napkins. I guess I am a neanderthal and would not worry myself with something like that. : )

        I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but there is no best napkin, ring, or holder in Watauga unless you go there and bring your own. Well, perhaps Chef Point is your best bet.

          I personally am not such a big fan of the very thick paper towels offered in some rest rooms. I feel that it is wasteful. (You really only need a one-ply towel after washing your hands.) Now my favorite is at NHS because they have the one cloth towel that kind of goes in a circle. I think it freaks out some people who are germ-phobic but I've actually heard that a little bacteria isn't a bad thing. It helps bolster your immune system.

            I'm more of a Dyson air blade kind of guy and that's why I think everyone should go to the Meddlesome Moth. I hope that is also the case for their women's restroom. I'm not a germaphobe or anything, but I also don't want to promote waste.

              I do like a good Dyson AirBlade but if you need to wipe your mouth a Dyson isn't going to help.

              I have seen the towels you are referencing at local car shops. I would be scared of the towel there. As for the one-ply paper towel do you use just one are do you use multiple?

              Let's say your hand are dripping wet, do you use one one-ply towel to dry them? Do you shake them off and let them drip a bit in the sink before drying? What if there is a line for the sink, say at the Meddlesome Moth after an event or special tapping.....Do you feel the pressure of impatient bathroom guests waiting for the sink while you drip your hands off in hopes of using just one towel?

              Also do you use a napkin/towel to grab the bathroom door if someone doesn't wash their hands? What is your routine in that instance?

              I personally like one thick one that I hold on to in case I see a non-washer to grab a hold of the door. The thick one also gets my hands comepletely dry and free of any moisture which some might believe as #1 on the hands. My overall preference is a Dyson AirBlade and a bathroom with a partition but no door.

                I'm an environmentalist first, so I try to use as few towels as possible. A single one-ply is more than enough for anyone, but I don't want to judge others' napkin needs. (Lewisvillehounder, of course you get a "pass" for using the napkin twice.)

                If I AM forced to use one of the thick towels, I'll take it with me and use it multiple times throughout my day for whatever napkin needs emerge.

                p.s. I'll confess, I don't know the napkin situation specifically IN WATAUGA. Sorry I did not address the original question. :(
