But man, walking out with that kind of change after 1 night of work would be sweet.
A lot of my friends work at a trendy hotel restaurant in New York. They split all their tips with bartenders, the runners, the busboys, the hostesses...and they still walk regularly with $1000 a night. They're union too, so they have insurance, which is rare for servers. And they do not nearly bust their butts the way I did as a server/bartender at a dive farther downtown. I'm not complaining though, I made good money, and truly loved the work.
