DENVER (KDVR) — The staff at Guard and Grace are extremely thankful for a patron that left a $6,800 cash tip distributed to the 34 employees working at the downtown restaurant on Saturday night. The guest signed the receipt “COVID bandit” and wrote “COVID sucks” with a smiley face on it. The receipt is similar to one previously signed at a cafe in Estes Park and is the same amount per employee.

According to Ben Moon, one of the staff members working on Saturday, the diner was talking to the general manager for a while. He then went to the bar in one of the private dining rooms where the staff had lined up and personally handed each member $200 cash.

“His reservation was literally under the name COVID Bandit,” Moon said.
