Serious question for Dakkanauts that do, or have previously, waited tables in the USA. And it’s to do with tipping.

I’m happy to tip, and understand the NYC average is around 15%-25% - though naturally that will be upped on Independence Day.

But, are tips typically preferred in cash, or an addition to a card payment?

And given the tip is for my server, and not their boss, are there any companies known to skim the tips from their staff, because I’d like to avoid such where possible.

Cash is better, at least down here, although both will be taken.

More or less what I was thinking. I guess that way they get the tips quicker, if not instantly.

Card or cash they get the money at the end of the night...but some servers might forget (hint,hint) to pay taxes on their cash tips at the end of the night

But is that not the whole point of cash in hand?



And given those working in such jobs likely aren’t especially well off? Fair enough, I say.

Exactly.

Odd question....

Can anyone else access Dave & Busters website? I keep getting a Proxy IP warning and bounced?

It works ok for me, but it does seem to want to use GEOIP and determine your location, so a non US IP might throw it for a loop, although I don't see why...

Ah fair enough

Was mostly just looking to suss out their menu, but I can do that via Google Images to some degree.

Maybe a direct link might work better? Not really sure how their janky website works...

Stupid java-based sites.

I downloaded it and put it up on free hosting site, hopefully that works for you.

They’re likely unaware. But being a US company, and kinda niche in their way, it’s understandable.

Nine days is a long time, long enough to basically do some of everything. Depending on your pace and how interested you are in relaxing, you'll have time to do two substantial tourist things a day. make sure to hit some history, some fine art, some broadway, some off broadway/avante garde, some fine dining, and then go nuts with ethnic foods.

You have enough meals that you'll have time to sample our amazing fast food. As for what fast food is worth trying... I'd actually stay away from the Fast Casual chains (chipotle, Five Guys, etc) because while they are objectively superior to fast food, local restaurants do what they do better, especially in NYC. I mean, why eat Panda Express when you can get real bulletproof Chinese, or why eat Five Guys when Brooklyn is the home of the hipster burger.

You want to eat nasty US fast food that is nasty US fast food. I humbly suggest the following:
White Castle: not really a burger place, they make tiny, steamed beef sliders. I wouldn't say they're great, but it's a really interesting experience, and they're one of the oldest fast food chains in the world.
Taco Bell: It's just so very, very much. The food is better than it's reputation (which isn't hard), but in the realm of "how many ways can we combine cheese, starch, and meat?" it does it without too much grease.
Checkers: Do you want bacon ranch cheese fries, and a burger they call only "Baconzilla?" Hell yes you do. do you want a lifetime's worth of saturated fat and sodium in a single meal? Damn straight. Checkers is the Fast Food place that that revels in being over the top and disgustingly good.
McDonald's: I guess, do this if you want to compare it to the British version?

All of the above have NYC locations, and I think really hit the spot of being not just Fast Food, but distinctly American Fast Food.
