Our session is at a great local pub and the manager gives us a generous bar tab to work through over our 3 hours there for beer food, etc. We might have to pay out for one or two pints at the end of the evening.
Last week (in my abscence) a couple of memebers insisted on putting out a tip jar for the sessioners to the chagrin of some others. I assume they did so without consulting the manager.
Should I applaud them for their ingenuity or remind them that we aren’t a working band and they should find a place downtown if they want to busk for tips?
Does your local lsession solicit tips form bar and restaurant patrons or is it frowned upon?
I tend to lean toward no tip jar since we are compensated already by the pub…not looking to have someone make my decision for me, but I’d like to hear the opinions of the salty veterans here to inform my thought process…..what does your experience tell you…
