You were lucky for every upscale bar theres 100 Denny's or Dunkin Donuts where there aren't $250.00 in tips available and where these miserable employers complain they couldn't survive if they paid a respectable wage,its a head screw supporting tipping is like supporting corporate welfare as I said before we have a fair minimum wage and the economy hasn't collapsed
Add one more name to the city’s growing list of brewpubs. Librarian Bill Perry will open a brewpub called The Public Option at 1601 Rhode Island Ave. NE by late summer or early fall.
This brewpub, however, will be a little different from other brewpubs and restaurants around town: The waitstaff won’t accept tips. Instead, Perry says he plans to pay a “living wage” of at least $15 an hour. If anyone leaves money on the table, the staff will decide on a charity to donate it to, either weekly or monthly. The Public Option will have notes on the tables and on its website explaining its policy.

Did you share your tips with bar backs and dishwashers?

Did you read the OP? She was fishing for tips and more money for the bar (I don't blame her for the latter), and then she completely ignored us while taking payment from everyone around us. She did very little actual work for us. We could have walked out and I'm sure she would not have noticed. Why reward incompetence?
when she was annoyingly trying to provide good service to you until you made it abundantly clear that you no longer wanted her to bother you and you were finished with the services she had to offer but you still wanted to inhabit her section and limit her ability to make any other tips from that table.
The server came to our table probably 15-20 times in the first couple hours (seriously ... it was damn annoying).
At this point she left you alone until you "demanded " your check. If I were you I would have assumed that since I made it clear I didn't want to be bothered by her, I should probably be the one to let her know when I was ready for the bill. Unempathetic, selfish people like you are the reason I occasionally hate my job. Fortunately, you are a breed that is few and far between, and people like Snarl make up for the jerks 10 fold! Not just because they tip well, I have happily waited on many people who didn't have enough money to leave a good tip, but because they were kind and treated me like a human not someones slave. As a server I owe you professional and prompt service I do not OWE you a smile or anything else. I am a server because I enjoy interacting with lots of different people, and finding a way to make their day a little brighter. If you want service with a smile and enjoy getting waited on by someone besides yourself, show some appreciation when you get it. WE ARE NOT YOUR PERSONAL WENCHES!
"She seemed to finally catch on that we were basically done with an hour to go and we were simply there to watch the event by that point
They're also also entitled to the same courtesy and respect as everyone else.
