Christmas came early yesterday to Steve Lucarelli, a waiter at Hollywood pub The Pikey. Last night two guys in suits ordered a burger and the vegan curry plus a Laddie Dill and a whiskey to drink, adding a $1,750 tip to an $88 bill. Stamped with the TipsForJesus badge, this is the handiwork of mystery tipping clan TipsForJesus, those responsible for thousands of dollars in tips at restaurants and bars across the country.

Restaurant staff say that the TipsForJesus guys were low key, and when it came time to pay they told Lucarelli that the service, food and drink was phenomenal, and not to freak out, that they would be leaving a large tip and that it was for real. Just like reports in the past, they paid with a black AMEX.

And this isn't the first time TipsForJesus hit Los Angles. Right around Thanksgiving TipsForJesus left $1,000 each at The Hungry Cat and Fig & Olive and $500 at Jumbo's Clown Room.

While the identity of TipsForJesus is not known, Eater National was able to score an e-mail interview with the mysterious mega tippers last week.
