    Six figures.
    ..but it was more of a "gift" than a tip.

    "Discovered" funds passed along to/for a decent cause.

    A hearty thank you will do in most cases. I find it helps take the edge off of people in times of financial difficulties.

    Two hundred and something dollars. I threw an impromptu birthday party for my old boss at a German restaurant in Lindenhurst in the middle of the week and it kinda threw their minimal wait staff for a loop, i made sure I tipped the 2 waiters well. it was over 200 but I don’t remember exactly how much.

    How many people were at this party and what was the bill? $200 sounds low

    Tipping workers BEFORE the service pays dividends

    My largest tip was $1000 after I won $10,000 at a casino blackjack tournament. The other four winners stiffed them.

    I don’t remember the total of the bill, but it wasn’t more than 4 or 500 bucks, I think.
    I don’t remember how many people. 6 maybe?
    The waiters seemed happy getting over $100 each. Lol

    I can't remember the biggest tip ever because I've been out with big groups and thrown parties where there have been high tabs and of course you have to tip a lot for a good waiter or waitress putting up with that kind of shit.

    I do remember a time my wife and I were traveling back to the Midwest from Phoenix and stopped in Joplin, MI of all places to spend the night. I felt like the whole trip there and back we had been getting shit service at all these places off the interstate. We went to a little local sports bar next to the hotel that ended up having a great atmosphere. The waitress was one of the most attentive and nicest I can ever remember having. We sat and watched basketball games all night drinking beer and trying different appetizers and shots. I don't know how, but the bill only ended up being $35 bucks. We immediately doubled it for having such a good time in there.

    I know that hardly makes me sound like a high roller, but I don't usually go tipping 100% on meals. :jj:
