if you are going to burn $10 of gas having fun, then another $10 for a "tip/gift" to your favorite waitress shouldn't be breaking any budgets. and if it does, then they can stay home and watch Matlock.

imagine the reaction your gang would get if you left $200 in tips on bills totalling $75. bet they would welcome you back anytime. "ah, here come those rich Corvette owners!"
I don't have to do that, it's been the same bunch for 10 years, give or take a death or two. We all know the routine, pretty much all are used to tipping more than "required". I have advised all that they leave at least a $5 tip, this covers the waitress, busboy, and the owners inconvenience, they do not have to cater to us, we are appreciative that they do.

And, no one's arm is twisted to attend, don't like the tipping, don't come, very simple game.
