I just don't see the need actually since it has never ever been a problem in any hotel, cafe, bar or restaurant I have ever been to. Since I don't see that I am doing anything that I should assume would concern anyone else in the room - it has nothing to do with them as the people doing sudoku puzzles, knitting, or having their monthly book group at other tables have nothing to do with me - I am not going to ask permission. So if someone has an issue with me readings cards at their establishment then it would be their job to come up to me and tell me. All of the private places of business I have read at in the last 14 years were happy to have me as a customer.
