(Indianapolis) - LaPorte got a state-wide shout-out Friday from Governor Eric Holcomb.
At the governor’s daily coronavirus press conference, Holcomb bragged about the generosity of folks in the Maple City.
“If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a hundred times, and that is, the number of people that are generously over-tipping,” the governor said. “I read a story in LaPorte,” he went on, “at the Third Base Bar and Grill—had an order for forty bucks and got a hundred dollar bill. That’s just kind of synonymous with what’s happening organically all over the state of Indiana.”
LaPorte: Home of the Big Tippers. It’s not official, but it’s got a nice ring to it.
