A stranger left a $3,000 tip on a $7 beer to help out a restaurant in Ohio, USA, that has been struggling to remain open throughout this coronavirus pandemic.
Brendan Ring, the owner of a Cleveland-based Jazz club restaurant named Nighttown,
Ring shared a picture on social media last week that showed him holding a receipt that had the numbers of the tip that was made.
The restaurant was about to shut down for the second time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Ring said that they used to shut down only once in one year, so this tip was a lot of help for him and the workers of the restaurant.
Ring said that the man, who was not identified, came into the restaurant before the closing time and ordered a single beer.
Yes, a beer that is worth 7 USD.
Upon paying the bill, he asked the owner to share the tip amongst the waiter staff.
In the post that he made on Facebook, Ring said that the man walked out and when he looked down at the tip that he had left, he realized that the money was a lot.
He added in the post:
As he walked out I looked down at the tip and realized he left a whopping $3,000 tip on a single beer purchase. I ran after him and he said no mistake, we will see you when you reopen! Unbelievable but symbolic of the kind of quality folks we have known at Nighttown all these years. I could post his name but I won’t as I think he wouldn’t want that, but all my wait staff and myself are humbly grateful for this incredibly kind and grand gesture.
Ring told Fox 19 News that they only close on Christmas Day each year, but because of the ongoing pandemic, they had a lot of struggles.
Talking about the ongoing situation, Ring said:
In the last two weeks, this COVID has gotten very, very close to all of us and I’ve had four customers, really close customers, get it.
Such an amazing act by the customer, who did not even want to be identified.
