A reader sent in this Whale story: "On one of our busiest Saturday evenings at RPM Italian we had an unsuspecting foursome come in and check in at the host stand. After requesting a great table in our dining room, they proceeded to head to the bar and have a few cocktails while they waited for their table. Meanwhile, a VIP booth in the dining room was being reset so we paged up the guests from the bar. My co-host proceeds to seat them and as she returns to the host stand she looks shocked. As he handed her the pager from being buzzed up for his table, he thanked us and handed her a wad of $500 cash. Not your average thank you, huh?"
