Charles Barkley Gives The Tip Of A Lifetime


PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) ― When Former 76er's star Charles Barkley comes back to Philadelphia, he often visits Saloon, a popular restaurant frequented by athletes and celebrities where 28-year-old Christian Abate works as a busboy.

"I'm a big basketball fan and when he came into the restaurant, I'd say 'Wow its Charles Barkley', and I'd always talk to him and we struck up some kind of friendship," said Abate.

But it was a tip from Barkley on a visit to Saloon last August that Christian will never forget.
