Plotting a caper in public probably isn't the best idea. But if you were going to do that--you know, maybe finalizing the timing between the entry into a bank and a diversion--there are certain minimal requirements that an establishment should have. For example, it should be dark. You should also be able to speak without being heard, and there should be no pestering waiters coming around. Before our last heist (How do you think this rag survives?) we found a nice, comfortable table near the back of the Surly Wench and found it quite suitable to our needs.
