Can I get a tip on tipping?

We frequent a wine bar that features a self-service Enomatic machine. You load up a debit card and then serve yourself. My wife usually drinks wine and I normally order beers. A $50 bill may represent $40 charged up on the card, with only 2 beers actually brought out to me by a waiter. I've been tipping based on the value of what we actually consumed, so I'm doing the math on what my wife drank, even though it is all prepaid and self-serve. If I tip the full bill, the waiter that helps us the next time, when we may not need to add to the wine card, gets screwed. Waiters of Mefi, am I doing it right?

How can I reverse the affects of alcohol on my blood vessels?

For the past two weeks I've been consuming large amounts of alcohol (mostly beer and wine, but also soju). After I first started drinking, I noticed a bump in a blood vessel in my right forearm. These bumps have now appeared along the rest of my forearm (that same vein). They feel like bruises. I'm pretty sure something is getting clogged up in there. I can stop drinking, but what can I do to get my blood flowing normally again? [more inside]

Does beer exist in Istanbul?

Does good beer or wine exist in Turkey? I'm staying in Istanbul for a few months. I've found the local food quite nice, but the beer & wine suck mightily. How do I find imported Belgian or German beer, or good French or Spanish wine. I hear Georgian wine is basically the best Eastern European wine. How might one find it? What about Greek options?

The effect of moderate drinking on mood and results during weight loss?

What has been your own personal experience with strictly moderate alcohol consumption (1-2 drinks/night) when engaged in any kind of weight loss regimen you've done? Did it have any noticeable effect on your mood, outlook, and progress? Better yet, what changes did you notice cutting out drinking or adding it back in? (please no crusading or mere speculation, thanks)
