He left a $3,000 tip and walked out

Businesses and employees are struggling amid new rounds of coronavirus restrictions. In light of this, one man went the extra mile.

Brendan Ring posted to Facebook that the man walked into the Cleveland restaurant called Nighttown on Sunday, ordered a $7.02 beer, and left a $3,000 tip.

Ring said he ran after the man after realizing how big it was. The man told him it was “no mistake and we will see you when you reopen.”

ABC News reports, Ring, who declined to give the man’s name, said the tipper asked that it be shared with the four employees working brunch that day.

Have you been tipper bigger amid the pandemic? Are you tipping for carryout or curbside pickup? How much do you tip?
