New national tipping trend: Buy the kitchen some beer


I was a little surprised — and I’m not sure why — to see this line on the dinner menu at the 715 restaurant in Lawrence, right under the list of vegetables: “Buy the kitchen a six-pack $12.” I asked our server if it was a joke, and he reassured me that it wasn’t, that many other customers had added 12 bucks to their supper tabs in order to tip the kitchen crew with a six-pack of Miller High Life.

“But wouldn’t the guys in the kitchen,” I asked, “rather have cash?”
