Meghan Markle Travels to Chicago Before Royal Wedding to Prince Harry

  Meghan Markle Travels to Chicago Before Royal Wedding to Prince Harry Meghan Markle returned to the United States on Thursday to take care of some business before marrying Prince Harry next month, according to multiple reports. In a photo obtained by The Chicago Tribune, a woman that appears to be Meghan is photographed from the back at O'Hare International Airport, going incognito in an all-black outfit and wearing a Red Sox cap. TMZ reports that Meghan later entered the VFS Global U.K. Visa Application Centre in Chicago with four bodyguards in order to finalize her application for a U.K.

After initially tipping $300 on his bill, a man then went to the kitchen to give each of the 17 staffers there $100 © Provided by AFP After initially tipping $300 on his bill, a man then went to the kitchen to give each of the 17 staffers there $100 What is a reasonable tip at a restaurant? 

For most Americans, the answer is likely -- at most -- 20 percent. But how about 260 percent?

For one patron at a Chicago restaurant, a normal tip was not enough to show his appreciation after a meal Sunday night.

Identified only as "Mike, who was visiting from Seattle," Boka restaurant announced Monday that the delighted customer left a $2,000 tip on a $759 bill.

Boka describes itself as an upscale restaurant serving seasonal American fare. It boasts one Michelin star.

After initially tipping $300 on his bill, he then went to the kitchen to give each of the 17 staffers there $100, the restaurant said.

The company posted an Instagram photo of the man giving a thumbs-up sign while posing with smiling kitchen staff.

"It was amazing to have that happen unexpectedly and randomly, and for someone to show that amount of appreciation," Jon Leopold, the restaurant's general manager, told the Chicago Tribune newspaper.

"It's not just about the money but spending time with people in the kitchen and telling them how wonderful of a meal it was and how important it was for the cooks to be doing what they're doing."

The timing was fortuitous for the restaurant. It has been nominated for a prestigious James Beard Award for service.

The winner will be revealed May 7 during an award ceremony in Chicago.
