'Tis the Season

So, since this is the holiday season the restaurant is booked solid this month with parties. Lots of parties.

Lots of parties with open bars.

Open bars paid by employers.

***The following is directed to the clientel of my restaurant.***

A word to the wise: If your employer springs for a large party with an open bar, make sure you bring enough money to tip people. Tips are never included when restaurants figure out the price for a party. The price is mainly for food and using the space.

Bartenders, servers, valets, hostesses, and yes, even restroom attendants need money during the holidays. Like you, they buy Christmas gifts for loved ones. If you don't tip them, then they have to buy shitty gifts for people.

It's not mandatory that you tip someone who helps you out, but it is customary. You make yourself look like an asshole if you ignore the help. Especially when your drunk ass embarrasses yourself and we have to deal with it. There's nothing worse than seeing a bunch of self-serving idiots getting drunk. How about a little appreciation?


Sorry. I had to vent there for a second.
