Most people will only deal with legal procedures a handful of times in their life. Major things like marriage or buying houses are most common, and most of us will have some insight into how those things work.

They were one of the last businesses to open back up in the pandemic due to being more similar to a nightclub than a bar, and a lot of social contact between dealers and players.
