Lifehacker gives us its take on tipping with a purpose.

How to tip so you get the best service at the bar

Published: Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013 - 10:00 am

Likehacker is a pretty cool site for all kinds of things we obsess over, from gadgets, employment advice and the latest on productivity systems like GTD (Getting Things Done).

The most recent helpful hints on the site have to deal with tipping — not only as a means to properly reward good service but to make your life a little bit easier throughout the evening at the bar. Think of tipping as getting the kind of attention you want from your bartender.

Check out their advice, be mindful that this is the holiday season and remember what I often tell my friends: It’s not really a flaw if you’re slightly too generous.

Here’s what Lifehacker has to say about tipping.
