The FB post referred to was about the Neon party that takes place at the sexy pool. It's between the buffet area and the pool and there aren't any tables there usually. They bring some small tables down from Bash and due to the limited space there are not many of them. They do sell them, how else would you decide how 500 people at the event get maybe 6 tables that seat 4 each? Likewise, they also bring down one or two sofas and the same pay to stay principle applies. Last time we were there at the poolside Neon party we sat at an empty table (we were there early). They asked us to move, I said no. They bought down another table and fitted it among the existing ones. We moved to that one for no charge. Regular nights at Bash (this is the part I don't agree with), they have taken away many of those long tables that are great for socializing with 20 or so people and replaced them with tables for four, and some for two. Taking up a ton of space with low density of people. You need an optimum density of bodies for a certain size area to make the perfect party. Too far apart no one talks to each other, too many strangers too close together people are uncomfortable. (Boobs Cruise anyone?) On the left side as you face the Ocean the whole side is long tables. On the right side there are only two long tables, both have "reserved" signs. Those are the front two. What I do is stand by an empty long table with the group I'm with, use it as a place to nonchalantly rest our drinks, gradually the girls put their bags down, we move the chairs around to suit the group and slowly encroach on it until we 'own' it. If the hostesses asks us to move (they are usually too timid to ask), I say No. The only time I would move is if it was reserved for the owners and their family, and they show up, or a Senior Manager asks me to (hasn't happened yet). As they say in Mexico, it's better to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.
