O.k., more front of the house... I am single and mostly don't mind going out and eating by myself. But somethimes I feel adventurous, and would not mind if restaurants had a communal table where you could sit with others/'strangers' who are at least a little bit open to communicate. I don't think I have even seen one of these out here on Oahu but I keep reading that they become more popular. Does anybody have any experience? Just wondering, from a pro standpoint - are they o.k.? Or do they cause any kind of problems? Just wondering why they aren't more popular.
