Usually I just avoid using public wifi. Tethering is practical enough these days. Worse case I have a few VPN endpoints to fall back on but if I'm going to be using HTTPS sites I don't even bother connecting.

I also tether a lot. Usually, the speed is better and more reliable than the over-crowded crap provided by businesses. The added layer of protection is just icing on the cake most of the time.
