Thanks kid...Here, have a dvd

Jeremy Piven has reportedly been banned from Nobu restaurants after paying a waiter's tip with a DVD.

Piven was dining at Nobu in Aspen during the recent Comedy Arts Festival. When the bill came, Piven paid it and left the waiter a copy of his Entourage series DVD as a tip. Pffft. Did the waiter try to stop him? "Sir, you accidentally left a dvd at the table!"

Maybe not. A witness tells the New York Daily News, "The outraged server threw the DVD at Piven. Piven came in with a large group of 12 or more without reservations and asked for a table. It was a very busy night, but a table, although cramped, was provided. On his way out, he made a nasty comment to the manager: 'Thanks for nothing.'" Nice.

Piven says, "I'm such a fan of Nobu and all of his restaurants. I had a great dinner at the Nobu in Aspen. As always, the meal was excellent and the service was great."
