An elderly couple were taken to a table next to us and the lady asked if there was another table after seeing the boys. Answer this was the only table. This couple finished before we did and they made a point of commenting on how well behaved the boys were. We knew there would not be a problem. We all see young children roaming tables and being a nuisance. Bad parenting.

We might give the “elderly” man a pass on wearing hats in restaurants. There may well be a medical reason for an older man to keep his noggin protected...a cold draft from AC comes to mind! I know I have been uncomfortable in a similar situation and have asked to be moved because of the cold blast.
That, and I have been bald since my 20’s (no toupees either)
