U2 - Cheap Basterds

Don't believe in excess
Success is to give
Don't believe in riches
But you should see where I live
I...I believe in love - God, Part II - Bono

I guess that includes tips.

U2 chows down on some North Carolina ’cue

By Associated Press

With or without ’cue?
After their performance Saturday at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, U2 chose with.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Cooper’s BBQ was about to close Saturday when the band’s private jet services coordinator called, asking for enough food for 25 people: barbecue, pork rinds, five fried chickens, pig skins, ribs, cole slaw, hush puppies.

Owners Debbie and Randy Holt said yes. But they don’t take credit cards so the coordinator, known to the Holts only as Maurice, had to verify there was enough cash on the plane to cover the $277 bill.

The Holts prepared the food for the 10:50 p.m. delivery. Debbie Holt and her 14-year-old daughter, Ashley, delivered the food to U2’s private jet at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, receiving $300 cash. - BH

So $300 cash on a $277 bill. Jeez, Guys. Could you spare it?

why do some people believe what they read?

nobody has the story right. they paid for the food
plus and delivery charge and then some.

they could have easily blew us off since we don't
accept credit cards, but they didn't. we accommodated then with food and they accommodated us with cash. and the person i dealt with was a very nice guy.

this comes from the only one who REALLY knows
the deal.
