Page Six: Jimmy Fallon Leaves a Tip of $400 for Waiter After Dining at a New York Restaurant
Following others' generosity, Jimmy Fallon became the latest celebrity to leave his server smiling with a sizable tip when he enjoyed a night out with his wife, Nancy Juvonen.
Over the last couple of months, actors including Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg made headlines for their thoughtful generosity during a difficult and stressful time in the world.
Jimmy Fallon kept the good vibes going in the New Year, as he also opened up his wallet following a dinner date with his wife Nancy Juvonen at Kissaki in Water Mill over the weekend.
THE GIFT OF GIVING
Kissaki opened its doors in June 2020, and it since became renowned for its premium quality sushi. The restaurant in Water Mill is the brand's third successful location, and Fallon enjoyed the experience.
According to a report from Page Six, Fallon also left a delighted waiter with a $400 tip, and he even posed with fans while sticking to social distancing regulations.
CELEBRITIES OPEN THEIR WALLETS
In November 2020, "Blue Bloods" star Donnie Wahlberg left the waiter that served him at Marshland restaurant in Plymouth, Massachusetts, a staggering $ 2,020 gratuity on a $35.27 bill.
The amount was on purpose, as it represented Wahlberg's participation in the #2020tipchallenge, which started to help those working in the food industry suffering due to the pandemic.

Then, Wahlberg's television dad, Tom Selleck, also joined in on the challenge. Selleck went to Elios restaurant in the Upper East Side, New York, and left a $2,020 tip.
Additionally, other celebrities, including Mark Wahlberg and Harry Styles, also participated in the #2020tipchallenge, spreading joy and support to those in need in the process.

I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it. To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU.#spreadloveandlovewillspread pic.twitter.com/1NcEswVbsO
NOT NEW TO WAHLBERG
The monetary show of support and appreciation is a longstanding habit of Wahlberg's that dates back to long before the novel coronavirus hijacked 2020.
After a visit to the Waffle House in Maryland in 2017, Wahlberg showed his support for the night shift staff by leaving them a $500 tip.
The chain's restaurant in Charlotte, N.C. also had servers smiling with $2,000 gratuity in addition to front row concert tickets and backstage passes for everyone.
The tip challenge took off in January 2020, after Danielle Franzoni, who works as a server at Thunder Bay River Restaurant in Michigan, got tipped $2,020 on a bill of $23.
The generosity touched Franzoni, who decided to pay it forward. A few days later, she asked others to join her in spreading the goodwill after tipping another waiter $2,020.
