Servers at most restaurants don't make a ton of money before tips.

If you've ever worked in the service industry your entire day can be made by serving a great table. A great table that leaves an awesome tip.

A bad day is taking home your hourly pay. Which at the moment is not a whole lot in Illinois when you're a server or bartender.

Enter the #TipTheBillChallenge. It's exactly how it sounds. You get your bill and instead of dropping the normal 15-20% (10% is unacceptable) you go 100% on the tab.

It's essentially half to the house and half to the server.

It's an awesome trend that has been blowing up on social media. The #TipTheBillChallenge has even made it's way to Poplar Grove.

Pro-tip: Don't share pictures of you leaving the tip. That's gross. At the same time, if you are a server or bartender on the receiving end of a massive payout because someone is playing along with the #TipTheBillChallenge, by all means, share it.
