TipsForJesus, the group of anonymous megatippers who have been sweeping the country, appears to have struck Washington. The group posted a photo on Instagram of a $5,000 tip left at the Park Hyatt hotel's lounge.
The tip was left yesterday for server Thomas on a $45.10 check, according to the photo of the receipt. Here's Thomas with his receipt. Eater has reached out to the hotel and its restaurant spokeswoman for any further information on the encounter. The hotel is the home of Blue Duck Tavern.
TipsForJesus has been leaving these tips across the country for several months ago. Eater National interviewed them (anonymously) back in December.
Update: A spokesperson for the hotel said, "Out of respect to our guests, we do not comment on the activities that may or may not occur inside the hotel and restaurant."
