High end servers make very good money as do people serving drinks in nice bars or restaurants.  They make a lot in tips when food and drinks are expensive.  Just ask Gavin Newsom how much the tip was on his $14,000 dinner.  15% is $2,100.

Maybe it’s different in the States but here in the last ten years there’s been this incredible push on servers to pool tips with other staff, leaving less for everyone but everyone gets ‘something’. No doubt in expensive steakhouses and very upscale bars you’re likely correct but at a franchise level I don’t think so.

It’s probably the same here, I don’t know.

For the 0.01 percent. We the serfs don't eat at bars and restaurants where per person it can be more than a whole month's rent. Or where in the above case, the tip alone was more than I spent on a car.

You can fix a $2,100 car.  Mechanic costs to keep it running would raise the price for ordinary drivers.  But yes, and just because he can spend that much money on a dinner, should he?

The optics really look bad, like it's a slap in the face for people who realize they spent more on a single dinner than the annual income of a lot of people.

If it's his own personal money... then I don't see why not, but if he's splurging that much of tax payer's dollars, then no... the public should hold him accountable and voice their concerns that he should personally refund the tax dollars he misused!

He’s busy buying votes with the $75 billion state surplus.  They have to spend every penny, apparently.

He’s trying to be a man of the people.  That alone sets him aside from the majority.  It should make him unelectable when he’s demanding everyone else stay home and wear masks while he’s out doing the opposite.

He's trying to be a politician and gain another rung on the ladder which as you said is the exact opposite of the majority.

Hopefully, that double-speak (do as I say and not as I do) stance will be the downfall of him.

A true leader needs to lead by example! Something he doesn't know how to do!
