I guess it is a toilet where the pipe is easily clogged, so it's no wonder the notice's there. I could be wrong though.

吐酒 can be the spitting out of wine as part of a wine tasting, although I'm not sure whether or not it means that here.

I've seen the first one a lot posted over low-maintenance squat toilets in small establishments on the mainland, except written 请勿大便!谢谢。 Means "Please don't defacate in the toilet." Perhaps the writer used the traditional "qǐng" character for emphasis, kind of like saying "Pleeeaze don't do that." Or perhaps just to be stylish. Or perhaps it's Hong Kong or Taiwan.

I think Glenn got the second one right as well. Maybe the toilet is in a bar. 吐酒请便用垃圾桶! "Do it in the trash can dog, not all over the toilet!"

Is this the name of the bar?

Ha, I found that funny, but it also makes me wonder how off I was with that. Misuse of 吧, perhaps? Or were you just playing on the multiple meanings?

I think this is more likely to be the case.

Well, that makes me feel better, although I still wonder if it was off... 汗

This is probably in a bathroom above the urinal, and like mentioned it was probably part of a bar.
