When we go to a restaurant with friends or relatives, I have only one request …
Four to six should be the maximum number of people. More than six people are not working.
If you have more than six, the conversation is interrupted. If one side of the table laughs out loud, the other side suddenly becomes boring. You can’t really share tables, and splitting checks becomes confusing. The group is simply too big. * shakes his fist *
On the other hand, a group of four to six gels nicely. You can have one conversation with the whole group. Everyone feels involved. The logistics are easy. The most epic nights are always from four to six!
I said that forever, so it made me laugh when I saw the comedian Matt Buechele make the same argument. Here is his song:
Four to six people! It is the hill on which I will die!
