“Please drink responsibly, but tip recklessly”

"Please drink responsibly, but tip recklessly” is a saying at many bars and restaurants. “Drink responsibly, tip recklessly” has been printed on many shirts. The jocular saying has been cited in print since at least 2004.

Set aside Monday for a good dinner and a good cause and keep in mind that the Bethel BPA hopes that many people will come to the restaurant that night to eat and drink responsibly, but to “tip recklessly.”
