The staff of the Stork Club, an elegant New York City nightclub that was in business between 1929 and 1965, operated like a well-oiled machine. The owner, Sherman Billingsley, even used hand signals to silently orchestrate their activities. Life magazine did a shoot in 1944 illustrating these motions including my favorite, "Call me to the phone, I want to get away from this table." Billingsley summoned staff to do so by pulling on his ear.
What signals do you think modern wait staff should use?
