A customer at an Ohio restaurant ordered a single $7 beer on the night it shut down for coronavirus—then dropped an enormous tip for the staff as he was leaving.
Brendan Ring at Nighttown/Facebook
Just before closing time on November 22, a man walked into the Cleveland jazz joint Nighttown. He ordered a Stella Artois, asked for the check, and wished the owner Brendan Ring well.
In a Facebook post, Ring said the man asked that the tip he’d left be shared with the waitstaff.
Ring looked down at the credit card slip the man had left with him. When he saw the amount he had left, “I ran after him,” Ring wrote, “and he said no mistake we will see you when you reopen!”
Describing the gesture as “unbelievable but symbolic of the kind of quality folks” he and the staff have got to know of the years, Ring said everyone at the restaurant is feeling “humbly grateful for this incredibly kind and grand gesture.”
