P.S. Not sure where you eat, but the where I dine, it's rare that the waiter/waitress or the server (who takes your order and who actually serves you your food may be two different people entirely) interacts with me upon entrance. That task is usually reserved for the host/hostess.
Believe it or not the issue is not about your choice in restaurants nor your tipping habits for the hostess, maître d', and/or the sommelier at these fine establishments, nor your generosity with the gas station attendants in the Garden State, but rather, the statements made by several posters on this thread that they get or expect better/special service than other customers at an LBS because they treat/tip/bribe the employees with cookies, doughnuts and/or beer. You may find that a normal or standard business practice for an LBS, I don't.
