My husband and I just came from a terrific dinner in a local place that only accepts cash. We dine out a lot, but usually use a credit card, so when it came time to pay the check we got into a disagreement about the total. It lasted the entire - half hour - ride home; we were laughing, but each thought the other was an idiot.

So. We would love to hear what Chowhounders would consider the appropriate check total. Here is the breakdown:

dinner: $101. ny tax $8.65 total bill 109.65

We wanted to tip 20% - our waitress was great! What is the total amount of cash we should we leave?
