something else…someone here advised me early on to “make a scene.” anything you can do to gain visual attention while you’re set up is good. if you serve a drive-by crowd, try to wave at every passerby. if they see you ahead, most will turn for a closer look at you in about the same spot each time. that’s a good moment to look right at them and smile and wave. the city bus drivers enjoy a good daily wave, too. sometimes, if they’re ahead of schedule they stop with hungry riders.
