“Who the heck is this COVID BANDIT??!!” owner Troy Guard wrote on Facebook of his restaurant at 1801 California Street. “Whoever this person is …, thank you so much for your act of kindness and your sincere genuine caring thoughtfulness you just bestowed on our Guard and Grace staff.”

“… some were crying – some are jumping up and down – some are dancing!” Guard said. “I don’t know who you are Mr. COVID BANDIT – but from the bottom of my heart – and our entire staff ….. THANK YOU 🤙🏾🌺❤️🤟🏽🙏🏽⭐️”

A group of friends was finally able to safely get together at a restaurant for the first time in over a year and they wanted to do something nice for their server. The group surprised their waiter with a generous tip for his stellar service. And when we say generous, we mean *generous**!* Each member of the group tipped their server the big bucks, totaling about $1,000 when all was said and done. After a year where restaurant employees have really struggled, it was clear this was a nice surprise.

Based on the message, the gift of $200 per person and the smiley face on the receipt, it appears the “COVID Bandit” may be the same person who gave a very similar tip at the Notchtop Bakery in Estes Park last month…

The owner of the Notchtop Bakery identified the customer only as “David.”
