RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada brewpub has turned to Facebook to publicly shame a patron who left the restaurant without paying his $100 tab.

Employees of the Brewer's Cabinet in Reno posted a picture of smiling patron Saul Zelaznog on Tuesday, telling him his actions were "pretty uncool ... pathetic, really," and urging users to visit his profile to "let him know he sucks."

They also warned other restaurants to watch out for the "serial" tab-skipper.

The message had been shared nearly 600 times by Thursday morning.

Zelaznog told the Reno Gazette-Journal ( ) he had forgotten a method of payment when he visited Tuesday, but planned to return to pay the tab.

Zelaznog says he was asking relatives to wire him money in hopes of paying the bill by Thursday.
