Can't keep up with the Crosstown tip-off? Here's a running list of the generous tips
Nearly a month ago, a crosstown rivalry left the basketball court and entered Greater Cincinnati restaurants.
The Crosstown tip-off" involves alumni and fans of the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University leaving generous tips, totaling more than $1,000 at local restaurants.
Since it has started, fans across the city have left these mega tips almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day. The tips are then to be shared with the entire restaurant staff.
