Welp, here’s my favorite thing I’ve found on the internet all day. Choosing the Right Seat: How not to get stuck next to someone that sucks is a delightful infographic (if we’re using the term “infographic” loosely) by San Francisco designer Alex Cornell. His observations and advice are spot on. If you are in a two-table large dinner situation, you’re basically 100% cursed to sit at the sucky table next to the boring people who aren’t drinking. It’s the Murphy’s Law of dining out in big groups.
