Why David Allen goes to Ontario City Council meetings

When promoting tonight's Tip a Cop event at Applebee's on Milliken Avenue, David Allen recorded an Ontario City Council exchange related to the event.

Councilwoman Sheila Mautz announced the event -- in which police officers act as food servers, with the tips going to various nonprofit organizations -- at Tuesday's council meeting, urging people "to tip a cop, and tip a cop well."

"Is that anything like tip a cow?" Mayor Paul Leon quipped.

"Jeff," Leon said, indicating a police employee in the room, "would you like to come up and demonstrate cop tipping?" Apparently he didn't.

I am otherwise occupied in Costa Mesa, but tonight's tip a cop event is from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
