  1. Hi Anton, there’s a typo error in your post but I would assume that the launch is on July 3, Sunday? instead of July 2 which is a Saturday.. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I hope you consider putting up notices to discourage pet-owners from placing their dogs on top of the tables. I’m a pet-owner myself and i’d never do it at home, so why would i do it in public places? That’s the fastest way to spread germs around.
