US consulates open for nonimmigrant visa appointments?

I recently received my approval notice for my O1 visa (sponsored by my US employer), and my girlfriend is now seeking her own O1 visa (sponsored by an US individual/agent).

Once we both have our approval notices, we'll have to get the visas stamped in our passports. However, the US embassy in Spain (where we're from, and where we currently are) will only schedule appointments for urgent cases who can present a NIE (national interest exception) letter.

I considered the possibility of going to Canada to schedule my appointment in the Toronto US consulate, but my lawyer advised they are not accepting non-resident requests for appointments.

Our question to you is: do you know of any US consulate that is open to schedule visa appointments for nonresident and non urgent cases, like ours? It doesn't matter where it is.
