Can someone who has gone to the USA advise me on tipping because I know the yanks like tips but I don't want to spend all my money on tipping people. How much do people tip and to who. thanks

    Pretty much any sit-down restaurant where you have a server/waitress or bartender you should be leaving a tip/gratuity for their service that customarily ranges from 18%-20% but obviously it depends on the service and/or if you required any extra attention. But it can also vary if you are just having drinks at a bar the same 18%-20% is suggested with a usual $1 minimum per drink especially if you’re going somewhere for happy hour where they might have half price or 2 for 1 drinks.
