I agree completely with Dave, at least in my experience playing small/medium clubs in New England, the Midwest and Northwest. The only venues I've played in where it's been stereo mains have been theater-type halls where the audience sits facing forward and doesn't walk around during the performance, and even most of them have been mono. I've almost never seen stereo house systems in a smaller situation with drinks and tables, the exception being acts who bring their own stuff.
