I want to thank you for your educational efforts to date; I feel far more confident in public situations thanks to them. This "bark" in the chirp...are you being metaphorical or literal? If literal is this bark like a domestic dog's or more like an alpha wolf?

I think it's a Tourettes thing.

I'm not sure why the Seinfeld photo appears here other than to illustrate the principle of serendipity:

Pie will be your indicator of success, as always. Depending on how much pie is in the area, a well positioned post up should yield you a slice of something.  Ideally you should never come out of stance - but this is becoming an old school approach to things.  John Boy Sutton never broke stance in 38 years, even during a fire at a venue upstate.  Earlier that very night he was able to remain in stance for 6 hours after accidentally pegging into a breaker box and electrocuting himself, which some say was ultimately the cause of the fire.

I am delighted at such a request, and it deserves serious consideration.

It was a literal bark, and needs to be very loud to compete with the noisy environment.  It's something I'm working into my routine and I may or may not keep it around.

What is it about posting up that attracts women? Don't they think its odd?

Would this be a good example of someone posting up at a house party?

I believe that position is considered an advanced technique. You are in the way, both blocking through-transit and blocking some food items, and thus maintaining stance requires extreme fortitude.

The issue I see here is that he is not in stance, and is a bit too close to the action for my liking.  He will be engaged in conversation throughout the evening.  I will provide some examples of proper stances, as well as a video tutorial of a technique for moving throughout the venue I call "the flurry."  This can be used independent of a post up, and could be effective in a cramped house "party" scenario where food is being served.

Posting up implies that one is hip to the scene, and has achieved a level of social understanding that places them far above mingling, engaging in polite, social conversation, or proactively approaching women in any way whatsoever.  Various slang terms, many of which you are probably familiar with, have been used over the years to refer to this gentleman who is at the top of his "game."

Gear.  Gear is your friend. 

Please, I need your input on proper attire for proper posting up at the club/bar. Will this shirt suffice? It seems to align with much of your advice. Thank you!

This threak has the potential to be epic.

How about a small stepladder? Or would that be too obvious?

A step ladder will simply not work.  How are you going to transport it into the spot?  I suppose you could disguise yourself as a repair man and carry it into the venue, then remove your Dickies jumpsuit revealing your actual wardrobe, but it is risky, to say the least.  A peg has been the go-to implement for as long as I can remember, and remains the choice of serious players.
