Friday Question of the Day – What is the Proper Etiquette for sitting at the shared tables in Union Market?

IMG_3455

At this point most people agree (as you can tell by the crowds) that Union Market has become a dining destination with new spots continuing to open. I stand by my love for Neopol Savory Smokery. But nevermind debating the food, I wanna talk about the seats. I’m not talking about the regular restaurant seats but the shared seating. What is the etiquette? When I stopped by last weekend there were lots of folks standing around looking for tables and there were lots of people lounging around at tables sipping coffee and/or just reading the paper. Which is cool but there seems to be a seating shortage at least on the weekends. So what do you think is the proper etiquette? Only take a table if you’re actually eating? Or screw it, first come first served and I’m gonna take my time and enjoy? Is there a middle ground?
