This Wicked Smaht Group Surprises Peabody Servers With A Massive Tip
Imagine being a server in a small restaurant and realizing you’d just been left a tip of several thousand dollars! This happened to two servers at the Red’s Kitchen and Tavern in Peabody on Monday. The tip was handed over by a group called Wicked Smaht Zone who are Peloton enthusiasts who’ve made it a tradition to bless servers at local restaurants. They started this tradition in January of 2022 when they left another large tip at Lowell’s Restaurant in Mendon. That tip was $4,000. Then last year, they left $4,600 for their server at Tavern on the Wharf in Plymouth. A nice gesture for this group who literally can change someone’s life by their actions. According to Wicked Smaht Zone member Josh Vernon: “When you have a platform, no matter how small that community might be, I feel there is a responsibility to utilize that reach to Do Wicked Good. As a micro community within the greater Peloton community, we have the opportunity to make a significant impact. We are just a small piece of what this Peloton community really does on a day to day basis, besides workout.”
The Wicked Smaht Zone members say they hope their tradition of giving inspires other people to do the same. In this case, Wicked Smaht Zone handed over $7200 to the servers at the Peabody restaurant who, as you can expect, couldn’t believe the gesture. But, after realizing it was real, they embraced.
When this community comes together, big tips follow. #TipYourServer in 2024 and #DoWickedGood when you go out to eat #restaurant #Tips #breakfast #payitforward #peloton #WickedSmahtZone #FitnessMotivation #peabody #Massachusetts pic.twitter.com/9VtRZPkDfu— Josh Vernon (@JV1734) January 8, 2024
This got us thinking. Remember when we mentioned there was another group of people giving rather large tips to servers on a regular basis? That group was called the “Thousand Dollar Breakfast Club” and they made the news after they left a $1300 tip for a Saugus IHop server. You can relive that story below just keep scrolling.
