Upon voluntarily closing due to the pandemic, a restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio, received a $3,000 tip from a man who ordered a single beer.

On Sunday, the customer walked into Nighttown and ordered the beer. He then asked for the check, which came to $7.02.

According to Nighttown owner Brendan Ring, the man wished him well and told him to share the tip with the four employees who were serving. Ring said that as the man walked out of the restaurant, Ring looked down at the receipt and "realized he left a whopping $3,000.

"I ran after him and he said, 'no mistake; we will see you when you reopen!'" said Ring. He and his serving staff were "humbly grateful for this incredibly kind and grand gesture."

Ring did not share the customer's name, saying he did not think that was what the customer would have wanted.
