Michigan fan's tip

An apparent Michigan fan left a $3,000 tip for a Utah waitress, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Who doesn't love a good tip story?

That's what we have today courtesy of the Salt Lake Tribune and one very generous Michigan Wolverines football fan. 

Utah waitress Breanne Snow received a $3,000 tip for a $505 bill at the Bourbon House bar in Salt Lake City after Utah's 24-17 win over Michigan, according to the paper's report. The receipt image, which has spread socially, has "GoBlue" and "Hail" as well as the handle TipsForJesus, which is an account that has become known for these tips. The TipsforJesus Instagram handle has an entire feed of receipt and happy server photos, dating back two years. Most tips are in excess of $1,000 and have reached $10,000-$15,000. The Tribune also noted that the big tipper was among a group of patrons wearing Michigan gear.

Below is the Facebook post from the Bourbon House and TipsforJesus. 

Tips for Jesus stopped by Bourbon House last night. What a great human being! He just made a Cocktail Server's year. He loves great whiskey. We'll look over the fact that he's a Michigan fan! @tipsforjesus

The bar's owner told the Tribune he'd never seen anything like it in his 19 years in the business. "I think it's awesome," he said. Snow told the paper "she went in the corner and cried for a couple of minutes."

The patron's tips have been noted before, and also tied to college football. A September 2014 story in the South Bend Tribune notes a $5,000 tip (on a $368 bill) at Legends in South Bend after a Notre Dame-Michigan game.
