Meiko, a Hotel Cafe regular, made another appearance Tuesday night to a house packed with fans, friends, and family members. Typical of a Meiko performance, the night was filled with many anecdotes in between songs which always makes for a fun night.
The former Hotel Cafe waitress touched on subjects as varied as misunderstood friendship, cursing on stage, and unacceptable fatherly terms of affection. A highlight was when she informed the crowd of tipping etiquette ($1 a drink / 15-20%, people!) and performed a song inspired by a confrontation she had with a poor tipper, aptly named “Ya Gotta F**kin Tip.”
