Please help keep Avanti a safe place!  Remember, some of our community members have chemical sensitivities.  Please avoid use of strongly aromatic products in public places. This includes, but is not limited to items such as strong perfumes/ colognes, hair sprays, and hand sanitizers (soap is far more effective any way)!  And, yes, the bathrooms--even the one stall--are public places.
Remember, when in doubt, ask!  
Thanks--You make Avanti Rock!
