DO: Wait for your whole party to get there before the hover starts
Nothing's worse than seeing one guy sitting at a four-top on that Sycamore Kitchen patio, telling everyone "my friends'll be here in just a minute". Sure, buddy. Sure.
DON'T: Squeeze in more people than can fit at the table
Two seats at the Wurstküche benches is TWO FRIKKING SEATS, no matter how skinny/fat you are. Especially no matter how fat you are.
DO: Move on in a timely -- but un-rushed -- fashion
There are other people waiting for those precious Apple Pan seats, and you see them, and you have acknowledged them, and they have seen you finish your Hickory Burger, and now it's time to leave (or... order another Hickory Burger).
DON'T: Gather seats before you're ready to sit
Similar to the before-everyone-gets-there hover, this is just an asshat move. We're looking at you, every single person at every single brunch restaurant in town.
