    Also for take out a good rule of thumb for tipping is dollar per entree

    So you got three plates of food? 3 bucks

    It's pretty easy that way

    Yeah lately I've been doing something similar to this for takeout

    What about buffets? I'm not one for leaving much of a tip if all they do is get my drink for me.

    Don't they clear your plates when you're done with them? I know I usually get more than 1 plate, and they come by and clear that plate for me as well as refilling drinks.

    Not normally no. You take your plates up to a specified area in every one I've been at which admittedly tho hasn't been in years. I've also never seen one where they refill drinks either; you do it yourself.

    I prefer refilling my own drink.

    Sometimes, if you tip well enough at a bar you visit often you are gunna notice your kindly bartender knocking some drinks off your tab. Which is really like the best investment.

    Yeah it's absurd how many folks don't tip in bars. Well in general bar etiquette leaves a lot to be desired. So if you are a good patron they treat you real well.

    Chincy's bar rule:

    1 dollar per drink OR

    if you've been there all night

    just tip like 15 bucks itll be fine

    On the subject of Munchkin would I have fun playing that game if I'm the sort of evil jackass who plays in a way to maximize chaos and winning is secondary? In Dominion I'm the one handing out Curses like candy and caused a house rule to be put in place where Moat is required to be part of any game's set after my shenanigans.
    My entire deck was built around destroying anything more valuable than Copper pieces, giving everyone as many Curses as the game physically had cards for, and forcing random discards from the hand or deck. There were no Moats as part of the set so they had to sit there and take it.

    I have a scaling system. But generally 50 cents per beer, dollar per mixed drink, and then probably two dollars plus on specialty cocktails. These increase depending on how busy the bartenders look to be/if there's a show/and how long I'm there. If they knock a drink off my tab I pretty much always pay for it in the tip.

    Actually I have a tipping question

    What about Microbreweries with Tasting liscences

    this basically means you are going to a warehouse with maybe a few tables set up, and they are allowed to serve you like 3 beers or so

    they are usually brewers or other staff who's job is not normally 'bartender'

    tips or no tips?

    Tip I'd say. Though all of our microbreweries have actual bars attached if not in the actual brewery. So I might be thinking of a completely different thing.

    Most of the ones here are like a small space set up in the building and they don't have actual liquor licenses so they can only serve x amount

    its a real weird fringe situation but I go like once a weeks so I was curious what people thought

    Oh man. Here in Arkansas we have the bonkers wet/dry liquor laws. Basically this is the first town I've lived in that you can buy alcohol. And we can't on Sundays. But if you drive fifteen minutes you can get it on Sundays in the adjacent town. Or stay in town and get a growler from a brewery. Another town you can have liquor stores but no bars. Pretty sure there's another town you can beer and not liquor. Annnnd it's a mess.

    So I am finally getting my prescription filled.

    Only took three weeks of jumping through hoops calling the doctors office and the pharmacy.

    Bar tips

    Don't go to bars. They are loud and dark and full of drunk people.

    But that's just my two cents.

    I'll stay out of both. That seems like a good plan.

    15% tip

    e-z

    (I'll waver between 10 and 20 depending on the service, but in general tipping the amount that is tax is usually pretty fair up here, and I like to tip a bit above that)

    I miss my old neighborhood bar. I could hit up happy hour on a weekday and it wouldn't be crowded. Except for Tuesdays. Tuesdays were Bacon Night, where you got baskets of bacon for free at the bar.

    Hell of a theme night

    if you order 4 custom lattes, each one so different that I can't even use the same milk to make them, and I'm the only person behind the counter, and there's a line of ten people behind you

    please tip

    even just like, a dollar

    Also never tip less than a dollar. Handing me the .03 back in a 2.97 transaction and saying "keep the change" sounds like "go fuck yourself" in my head

    Clubs are great. You get to dance and kiss cute boys.

    And if you were clever you pre-gamed across the street so you aren't dropping $20 on three beers! Whee!

    I go to the bar that all the bartenders go to as well. Generally the least packed and best serviced. Pretty good place.

    I'm too old for clubs now, but I've never really liked them

    Too many people and too much "I am here to hook up" vibes

    You know not liking bars and clubs basically makes it impossible to find somewhere to go on weekends.

    I'm sitting in class

    after class I'm going back to work for a couple hours

    Then I will go home, where I will cook dinner, though I'm not quite sure what I'll make

    exciting times

    I had the realization today that for right now I'm either at school or at one of my jobs every day of the week.
