Just FYI, I wouldn't do this in a public place. Ad-hoc networks can pose a security concern to your computer. One of the first things I look for when doing a pen test are Ad-hoc networks; since all of the traffic goes through the computer. (And remember... pen testers are trained to think like hackers...) ;)
