Employees At 2 Ann Arbor Bars See Big Mystery Tips
ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) - Employees at two Ann Arbor bars have seen some unusually big tips this year.
In September a $3,000 tip was left for an $87.98 bill at Bar Louie and $7,000 for a $200 bill at Alley Bar. Something the generous tips had in common: @tipsforjesus was penned on the receipts’ signature lines, according to a report by The Ann Arbor News.
Alley Bar co-owner Robbie Schulz says he waited on a group of about five guys after University of Michigan’s home football game against Notre Dame. He says they arrived about 1:40 a.m., had some drinks and one of them paid with a credit card.
Schulz says the tip was split among Alley Bar staff. He says the tippers wanted to remain anonymous.
The mystery tips are among a number reported around the country in recent months. They’re being chronicled on the photo-sharing application Instagram under the “tipsforjesus” name.
