Both Pub Dogs could get all new custom XLerator hand dryers

pub dog xlerator mock-up 1Lookout Baltimore and Columbia!

According to the folks at Excel Dryer, both Pub Dog locations could have all new custom XLerator hand dryer covers in the coming weeks. The Hand Dryer Saga is coming to a close.

"Looks like both locations are going to have a full XLERATOR custom cover makeovers," marketing spokeswoman Shannon Filippelli wrote in an e-mail.

"You win. You win, big!"

The folks from Pub Dog are working with the folks from XLerator to retro-fit all the XLerators at the Columbia location with new custom covers. And the Baltimore location could get all new hand dryers and covers soon ...

At long last, Pub Dog patrons will be able to get an honest hand dried after a good, clean scrub in the sink. It's the American way, gang.

When the Baltimore Pub Dog installs its new XLerators, I'm going to head down there and take a couple funny photos.

Pub Dog owner Steve Osmond said he's thinking about printing out the XLerator saga, framing it and hanging it on the wall near the bathroom. I'll take all the credit I can get, of course.

But what's most important is, Midnight Sun caused positive change in Baltimore's bar scene. And that, gang, is priceless.

You would think this issue was of pressing international concern the way you have been covering it to death. Don't break your hand patting yourself on the back.

Jt, Might I remind you -- hygiene is no small matter. Pat myself on the back? No way! I'm busy drying it with an XLerator.

You're drying your back? It's possible you're overdoing this cleaning up after taking a pee.

... or getting a little too excited prior to the cleaning up part.

There have been a lot of bathroom posts the past few days. First the ornate urinal post and now this chapter in this ongoing saga. Have you been spending a little too much time in bathrooms lately, Sam?

I've always been frank about my bathroom fetish.

Hanging out in the Men's room yet again aye trabek? can't say I'm suprised.

Hey Cardwell,

Sam's only trying to help you out. When you are prancing around Fells point next Saturday in a chicken suit for 6 hours, I'm sure you will need to go to the bathroom.

We need stories like the hand-dryer saga to make us smile during long work days. Personally, I cant wait to try it out!
