BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Employees at an Idaho pizzeria are using
more than $115,000 earned from tips over the past 13 years to pay
for a weeklong tropical vacation.
The Idaho Statesman reports that two locations of Flying Pie in
Boise will close starting Jan. 13 so that 54 current and former
employees and eight guests can go to Costa Rica. The guests paid
for a portion of their costs.
The workers of the State Street and Fairview Avenue locations
had been investing 10 percent of their tips toward a trip to Hawaii
since the mid-1990s. The pizzeria pulled the money out last year
after deciding to go to Costa Rica instead.
