With bars and restaurants facing a difficult road because of a mandatory closure, workers in a bar in Columbus received a nice sendoff on Sunday.
A customer at Coaches Bar and Grill left the staff a $2,500 tip on a bill for less than $30, asking that the money be divided among the workers. The restaurant posted a photo of the check Sunday night on Twitter.
“(There were) tears, tears of joy,” Coaches owner Benny Leonard tells WBNS Channel 10. “An unbelievable act of kindness on a pretty weird day.”
Gov. Mike DeWine ordered the closure of all restaurants and bars in Ohio as efforts continue to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Businesses can still offer carryout and delivery. WCMH Channel 4 reports Coaches plans to offer both carryout and delivery.
“We’ve got unprecedented times going on, we’ve got people fighting over toilet paper and so on and so forth, and to have a guy show up and care enough about people that give him a beer and a hamburger once in a while, that means a lot,” Leonard tells WBNS. “It’s humanity at its best.”
Ohio is not the only state closing bars and restaurants because of the virus … California, Illinois, Massachusetts and Washington followed suit on Sunday, USA Today reports.
