Bono stopped by L.A. landmark Canter's Deli and apparently left behind a $150 tip for his server.U2 has been hanging out in Los Angeles during their five-night engagement at The Forum. Bono apparently stopped by Canter's Deli on Saturday, according to Irish Central. He asked his waitress, described as a woman in her 50s by Irish Central and a woman who'd worked at Canter's for 50 years by Billboard, what he should have. She brought him a corned beef reuben sandwich, fries, onion rings and even threw in a free chocolate chip rugelach. His bill came to $20, but he liked his meal so much that he left her a $150 tip. He's also a bajilionaire, so why not?

Bono also apparently mentioned his delightful Canter's meal during one of the shows. U2's last show at the forum is tomorrow, then the band will head for Denver.
