It happened at Coaches Bar and Grill in Columbus, OH. Last weekend the governor Gov. Mike DeWine ordered all restaurants and bars in the state to close to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. So, one generous customer ordered some food and had a tab of around $30. He ended up leaving an enormous tip of $2500 and a note that read “Please split this tab equally between Tara, Nicky, Jim, Liz and Arrun.”
The tipper wanted to remain anonymous but he was definitely a regular.
“There were tears of joy among everyone here,” Leonard told CNN. “On a day when I’ve never seen a shutdown like that, I’ve never seen a tip like that either.”
