Mystery Tipper Tips $5,000, $1,000, and $1,000 in Utah


In August 2013, a mystery tipper tipped $7,000 in Utah. On August 17, he tipped $5,000 on a $214.75 tab at Brewskis in Ogden, Utah. That same night, he tipped $1,000 on a $49 tab at the nightclub Alleged in Odgen, Utah. That same weekend, he tipped $1,000 to a girl who works at Wolf Creek Utah Golf Course in Eden, Utah. People speculated that the mystery tipper is billionaire Sir Richard Branson, but Jared Allen, the owner of Alleged, said that the mystery tipper is not Sir Richard. Mr. Allen said, “Richard Branson was in town that week, but he’s not the guy who left the tips. It’s a young guy, an old classmate of our liquor rep for the bar. He wants to remain anonymous.” Mike Allen, Jared’s brother and a bartender at Alleged, said, “The guy had hired a limo to drive him around all day. He and five of his friends had sat at a table and opened a tab on this guy’s black American Express card. At the end of the evening, we brought over an iPad for him to sign the $49 bill, and he informed me that he wanted to leave $1,000 as a tip.” Mike asked the man if he was sure about his decision: “He looked surprised that I would even question it; however, he appreciated the fact that I double-checked. We split the tip between three bartenders and a waitress so we each took home $250.”
