Nothing says “summery” more than NO DANCING when you’re trying to enjoy your lobster thermidor and waldorf salad on a warm evening in July of 1951.  BTW, “couvert” is the origination of how we get the term “cover charge” today.  Normally, a couvert was paid in order to get hors d’oeuvres before the main course was served.
