CHICAGO - SEPTEMBER 30: French fries wait to be ordered at a fast-food restaurant September 30, 2002 in Chicago, Illinois. Scientists have made progress in understanding the chemical reaction that may cause fries, potato chips and other fried or starchy foods to build up high levels of acrylamide, a suspected carcinogen found in a host of everyday foods. The culprit is believed to be asparagines, a naturally occurring amino acid that can lead to the formation of the potential carcinogen when subjected to high temperatures. Swedish scientists in the spring announced that high levels of acrylamide can be found in many high-carbohydrate foods that are fried or baked at high temperature. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made assessing acrylamide?s risk and determining how to lower its levels in food a priority. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)
A Florida restaurant is grateful for what the owner calls an incredible guest.
Dave Trepanier owns Firefly in Panama City Beach, and he posted on Facebook last week about a one thousand dollar tip his staff got.
He says it has been a long, hard summer for the staff, and it’s nice to know some folks out there appreciate them. The money was split with the staff on the cooking line.
