I Forgot To Leave A Tip-What To Do?

I had brunch earlier today, and paid for my bill with a credit card. I didn't include my tip on the credit card like I usually do, because after paying with my card, I asked for change for a five dollar bill...with every intention of going back to the table to leave the tip for the waitress. I was dining with two friends, and we all started chatting while up at the cash register (not a fancy place). So, with all the chatting going on, I obviously completely forgot that I needed to go leave a tip on the table, and my friends & I walked out together.

It wasn't until tonight that I looked in my wallet, realized that I had five singles, and gasped! Oh no, I forgot to leave a tip.

I feel awful about this...the food was great, the service wonderful....I honestly forgot to go back to the table to drop off the money for the tip.

I'm not sure if the restaurant is open on Sunday. I'm inclined to go back to the restaurant & tell them what happened & give them my tip. I just want to make sure that it gets to the proper server, and I don't know her name.

What would ya'll do?
