"Men are born soft and supple;
dead, they are stiff and hard.
Plants are born tender and pliant;
dead, they are brittle and dry.

Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft and yielding
is a disciple of life."

-Tao Te Ching

Bar Bathroom Review: The Penthouse at The Huntley

For the best place to appreciate a view of the Pacific, Malibu and Santa Monica, relieve yourself in the bathroom of the The Penthouse at The Huntley Hotel. Wait for the last stall to see what I mean. Also, the sink runs at a 90 degree angle down to the corner drain just like an ocean wave or the vision of someone who has drunk more than a few Thyme and Cucumber cocktails.
