Mystery man giving up to $10,000 'Tips for Jesus'

If you work in a restaurant as a server, you might want to put your best foot forward for the next week or so — in the event you run into the person behind the @tipsforjesus Twitter account.

The mysterious person, who has more than 3,000 followers but has yet to tweet, has been leaving behind some incredible tips from coast to coast. From a $1,000 tip on a $111.05 bill at a New York restaurant, to a tip as much as $10,000, he’s spreading some serious holiday cheer.

While his identity is a secret, here’s what you’ll want to look out for:

  • A middle-aged man who sometimes travels with a woman.
  • The guy likes his liquor, but who doesn’t? He’s ordered bourbon at one place and at another, ordered five ounces of the restaurant’s most expensive whiskey (it was $70 an ounce).
  • He always pays with American Express.
  • Speaking Spanish won’t get trip him up. (Which makes me wonder, is he the most interesting man in the world? Although I can’t imagine someone who drinks Dos Equis as having a sophisticated enough palette to spend $70 on an ounce of whiskey.)

If you do run across him, he’s going to ask to get a picture of the receipt – so he can post it to his Instagram account, which has more than 50,000 followers. But surely you won’t mind, especially if the price is right.
