Drunk (Fourth in a Series)

posted by on August 6 at 9:15 AM


The water fountain outside the gym at Bellevue Community College.

Temperature: Room temperature. Score: 3

Stream: High. Strong. Full. Fat. Real arc. Too bad the stream wasn’t anywhere near cold. Score: 8

Taste: Slightly tinny. Score: 4

Hum: I liked the strong white noise whoosh, but it seemed thin without the electric buzz underneath it that I want from an indoor fountain. Score: 5

Style: It’s a small-to-medium silver sink jutting out of the wall. There’s a square high silver back. The tall, spoon-shaped spout was a distinctive touch. And there’s a good-looking, wide lever on the right side of the sink. It didn’t offer much resistance, though. Score: 7

Make: Haws

Comments: Good-looking fountain with a high, fat stream. I wish the stream had been cold.

Final Score: 5.4 out of possible 10.


Previously in Drunk: The water fountain at the Stranger; the outdoor water fountain by the tennis courts at Volunteer Park; and the water fountain outside the gym at Seattle Centeral Community College.

That's a good-looking fountain.

All the water at BCC tastes nasty.

With all this talk about streams and all, I was just wondering if you're maybe into water sports.

And by the way, has anyone mentioned the homoeroticism of this week's Drunk of the Week pic?

Looks like that boy's been eating more than hot dogs.

How about reviewing a 10 so we can have some perspective.

How do I know in advance that it's a 10.
I'm looking.
Any suggestions?
Strong stream, hearty hum, ice cold, and preferably a stand-up fountain as opposed to positioned on the wall.

Good question. I am guessing somewhere high up in the Columbia Tower (maybe near where they have the bathroom with a view) or one of the buildings built in the last five years. Also, the newer buildings on the UW campus (Gates Law School, Paul Allen Computer Center), or the Four Seasons.
