    “I knew valet was getting hit hard, but hearing it’s across the board for anyone getting gratuities – bartenders, cocktail servers, dealers – was a surprise,” he said. “Unfortunately the front line employees are taking the brunt of it.”

    You know, I often thought of this and figured the valet guys would get hit the hardest. I hadn't thought of bartenders, cocktail servers and dealing feeling the pinch.

    I figured the same, but when you think about it, it seems logical. I was in the F&B biz for a long time. When you raised prices, BTs and servers always saw tips go down for a bit. In time they returned to normal levels. In this case it's not a price increase, but a new charge that didn't exist before. A new charge like that will affect tips left for a number of patrons and what's lost may not return.Now if you could downgrade amounts paid at checkout, you'd have something there!

    Good Luck!

    I figured that out. I didn't figure people outright stiffing servers and dealers but I thought the fee money would come from money people allocated for restaurants and shows. I figured the lower checks and people going to fast food outlets would lead to lower tips.
