Re: Hotel housekeeping: Do you tip?

Just got a freezer delivered and shlepped down to the basement. Would either of the "flyers" tip for that?
I once had a dresser delivered, and boy did I get it from the furniture store owner (who happens to be related to me), for not tipping.

Do you always tip your Bartenders in lounges? If so how much? Do you tip with your first drink? Last drink? Every drink?

How about never?

that should also be an option.

Im not American so I tip in accordance with the service.

Depends if I'm wearing a baseball cap or Kippah -- if the latter, got to tip every drink.  If the former, you have more discretion.

SuperFlyer -- I'm a firm believer in tipping commensurate with the quality of the service -- but we're talking about the bartender in a lounge.  How can the service vary so much in quality to make a difference??? They either gave you your beer or didn't  :)  I suppose if they made you wait a while and seemed to keep doing other things....but I've never experienced that.

He hides his peyos under his cap, and they will think:

If skinny: Some hippie/greenpeace activist

If big: a harley guy

I actually laughed out loud at that last exchange :)

Just had this conversation (baseball caps) with my Rebbe from Israel last week (when he was in NY) -- I agreed that the cap works for me, but that his big beard doesn't allow him any incognito time.

Regarding tipping, I don't tip for a soda or water from the bar (water is usually self-service anyway), but $1 would be reasonable for a beer or alcoholic drink.  That's a normal tip when you are paying for them in a bar, so it would only be reasonable to tip that when the drink is free.
