Imagine this: You’ve just been seated at a nice restaurant. Time to set that napkin on your lap … or is it? Do you do it right when you sit down? Or wait until a waiter takes your menus? Or wait until the bread comes??! WHO KNOWS?! GQ knows. And they’re letting us know in the nick of time, otherwise we might’ve made an ass out of ourselves during Christmas dinner with the in-laws. (Oh, and by the way, it looks like Alan Richman picked his five favorite desserts of the year. But seriously, how many lists is this dude gonna trot out? Favorite drinks of the year coming tomorrow, we presume?) Oh, right, the napkins. Almost forgot. Do it when everyone at the table sits down. [GQ Eye/GQ]
