They’re Living Large In Kansas City: Chiefs Player Leaves Gigantic Tip

A 70 percent tip on a $1,800 dinner bill? No problem: I play for the Kansas City Chiefs, and we're 7-0.
Following KC's 17-16 win over Houston on Sunday, Cheifs' linebacker Tamba Hali hit Fogo de Chao restaurant in Kansas City with about 15 family and friends. The bill was $1,800 (including $296 automatic gratuity). Hali, feeling all 7-0-ish, added $1,000 to that -- must have been great service -- to make the total $2,800.
Restaurant employees say Hali is a regular customer who is a generous tipper. Still they were stunned when he added an additional $1,000 gratuity onto the bill.
"It made our day. Hands down, it made our day," server Joshua Roan said. "The staff was over the top. He was the last guest in the building. There was a lot of shouting and hollering after he left. We had to wait until he left. We had to keep it professional."
