Customers Settle Bills Forgotten in Boston Blasts
Amid the chaos and fear in the moments after the Boston Marathon explosions, many restaurant customers fled without settling their tabs.
Rattlesnake Bar and Grill owner Tony Castagnozzi understands the gravity of the situation, but he figures the unpaid bills totaled about $3,000. Since the April 15 blasts, he says about a dozen customers have made good on their bills, helping him recoup about $1,200.
The honest customers come from Colorado, Florida, Virginia and across New England.
Castagnozzi tells the Boston Herald "there are so many good people out there."
David Christmas, of Acton, says he paid his $35 tab and added a $15 tip because "it's the right thing to do."
Other restaurants report similar experiences.
