unexpected 20s

This is a great place for individuals and small groups to start partnering with us. Big Table provides small envelopes that you fill with a $20 bill. Then you will give this to someone working in a restaurant or hotel invisible to others. Explain that this is not payment or a tip, it is a gift.

Need envelopes? Contact us. We’d love to send you some. Or, if DIY is your middle name, use the template.

care blitz

Coordinate with Big Table to surprise someone in the industry experiencing a crisis. You and your friends will show up with Unexpected 20’s and/or gifts to give to this individual. Our Big Table team will identify the person and will work with both you and the manager to plan the surprise. Contact us with questions or to start planning a blitz.

adopt a restaurant

Gather a group of friends who will adopt one restaurant in your neighborhood. Dine regularly at this restaurant and get to know the people who work there. Look for opportunities to celebrate, encourage and support the people of that restaurant. Questions? Contact us and we’ll help you get started.
