The site of the Idaho senator’s wide stance and paper picker-upping is now the place to go! Perhaps it should be added to the Convention and Visitors Bureau information brochure!

When you go to Minneapolis, you might put the Mall of America, the statue of Mary Tyler Moore or maybe even the zoo on your list of things to see.

Now tourists are asking about a new destination in the Twin Cities, says Karen Evans, information specialist at the information counter at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

A common request is, “Excuse me, can you please tell me where the Larry Craig bathroom is?” Evans was just 15 minutes into her shift Friday afternoon and already had heard the request four times.

…Abdalla Said, who works at a newsstand on the G concourse, said he’s been getting requests daily for directions to the infamous bathroom.

“People have been going inside, taking pictures of the stall, taking pictures outside the bathroom door — man, it’s been crazy,” he said.
