The act of quietly scanning a crowded bar looking for table but not letting others know you are looking, therefore giving away the fact that you are their competition. Trying to avoid the "45 min wait" for table.
There is a 2 hour wait for a table. Suddenly I saw a table across the room but how do I get there without these other assholes seeing it too. Damn I've got good bardar. I just felt the empty table.
