Whether you love it, hate it, or are indifferent, tipping is inextricably a part of the American drinking experience. Despite its ubiquity, though, lots of confusion reigns around how much to tip, whether it’s O.K. to tip less if you feel like you’ve received poor service, or whether there’s an obligation to tip the same on drinks as you would on food.

This week’s VinePair podcast finds Adam and Zach rather worked up about the whole topic. They delve into why you shouldn’t be dining out if you can’t tip properly, how modern reservation technology allows restaurants to share information about bad guests and cheap diners, and they aim to resolve any unanswered questions you might have about this dated but still omnipresent American phenomenon.
