Those tables on the upper deck in line with the lower deck will have been vacated by that time to accommodate them.
If I understand what you are saying, they will be taking less general reservations at show time than before so these tables can be saved for the upcharge event in case of bad weather.
So what I originally feared is true. I used to be able to get a table at R&C and watch the show for just the price of my dinner, but now there will be less "free" tables available for those of us not willing to pay $85 for a 10 year old to eat a pub burger and soda. So again, an upcharge event IS taking away from me.
I'm just getting tired of losing things....
