While our family plans to continue giving $500 tips at least once a year on our own, this opportunity came as a surprise for and us thanks to the kindness and generosity of a family in Fort Wayne we were able to surprise Kitty at Mad Anthony with the 101st $500 tip for Aaron!
I’ve been taking a nice vacation from tip giving since returning from my road trip, but that doesn’t mean we are done. As long as we continue to receive donations, we will continue giving $500 tips to unsuspecting waiters and waitresses. You can expect the next one to come in July. Also, I know lots…
Yesterday’s tip took place at 23rd Street Brewery. I didn’t know anyone in town, but luckily I met Nick the night before, who was in town taking his daughter, Kelsie, and her friend, Allison, on a tour of KU’s campus. Thankfully they joined me for the 60th $500 tip, featuring our waitress, Jessica.
I stopped by Java Joe’s across the street and convinced Mike to help me out and then we went to Fong’s Pizza in Des Moines. There we surprised Cassie with a $500 tip.

Yesterday Kevin and I ventured down to Richmond, where we both attended Eastern Kentucky. Michael and Jessica on…
