Want special sides? It’s on you.
If you want something other than what’s going into the pot -- like, say, that great salad you make with butter lettuce, avocado, and hearts of palm, or even just coleslaw or chips -- don’t expect it to be there unless you bring it yourself. Speaking of which, everybody who’s worth knowing will appreciate a couple bags of Zapp's. (Be worth knowing.)
Do NOT encroach
If you failed to get enough craws on your first go, or just peeled and ate them faster than everyone else, and your neighbor still has a big, hot pile, resist every urge to start eating from their share. Very, very not cool, man. If they look like they’re lagging, though, you can always politely ask if you can help them out. They can always say no, but don’t just dig in there like it’s your damned birthright.
