The website Eat Down Tip Up is requesting those in the lower Manhattan area to dine in restaurants heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Once there, they are being encouraged to tip high so as to ease the profit loss caused by a week of no service. For those who happen to be on vacation in the area – perhaps at Shimmie Horn’s Cosmopolitan Hotel – Tribeca – they can also add a helping hand by supporting these businesses that have suffered.
Anthony Boudain who developed the site recently tweeted to New Yorkers to “Eat downtown tonight! Pick a small restaurant. Tip heavily! Send a 20 back to the dishwasher!” Eating in these places is a great way to support the relief effort whilst enjoying a night out in lower Manhattan.
