It pays to service Mel Gibson ... especially in Arizona ... where the actor dropped a massive tip after a fancy Italian dinner Monday night ... TMZ has learned.

Gibson hit up the Bravo Bistro in Scottsdale ... where he dined on shrimp cocktail and osso bucco with the owner of the restaurant and two women.

After 3 hours, Mel picked up the $170 bill ... and left a $150 tip ... that's 88% for all you math-a-magicians out there.

Mel Gibson -- winning back fans one server at a time.

According to the website
Geisha a Go Go is a KARAOKE BAR
that serves Japanese food and has
private karaoke rooms...

I read some of the patron's comments.
It seems you have to reserve the karaoke
rooms,probably if you are a celebrity like Mel,
you just show up...

I think k/ rooms are $100 or 150 per hour...

Again, why was he there in the first place!
Why couldn't he stay in his hotel
and watch a movie, read a book - whatever!

But to go to a BAR!???
Dumbazz!

@ Dumb Bunny - I can tell by your comment "sure you did" (last page) that it bothers you that I was at those parties. If I wasn't there how would I know he had them (and the naked boys running around)? Trust me, it was a sea of gay boys dancing their gay butts off to club music - all sweaty and covered in tanning oil - a FEAST FOR THE EYES.

Nothin hotter then a hot bodied boy in a speedo covered in tanning oil.

@ FN - you make a good point about Mel's choice of where to go after the dinner. His hotel room would have been the safer choice however he is a grown man who can make his own decisions (not fails to make the right ones).

But a karaoke club w/ a stripper pole in the private room - one can only wonder about the "women" he was with.

@2idiots,

there are times I just want to slap
Mel/the dumbazz! Like right now!

And that photo from Geisha a Go Go,
showing a TV screen with the words
he was singing?!?From "Come Fly With Me"

"...if you can use some exotic booze.."
"...there is a bar in far Bombay.."

Oh, I am SURE, Mel knows a LOT of BARS,
not just in Bombay, but also in other places...
like in Nicoya/Costa Rica or "The Living Room"
in Bali...
or Sidney...or Tahiti...or Malibu...
Dumbazz!

The Dirty is reporting that Mel was at a bar in Scottsdale drinking - later that morning he has is mishap......

@2idiots

The Dirty is doing Mel Gibson a "BIG FAVOR"!!! As hard as he's fought to convince the Family Court here in California that he's "RESPONSIBLE" enough to maintain 50/50 custody of his youngest child, he could easily throw all of his "HARD WON" gains away with such careless antics. Furthermore, Warner Brothers may have "issues" financing any of his future projects, if it can be proven that he's actually drinking. With the substantial amount of stress he's been under since 2009, he probably should check himself into an "INPATIENT" rehab facility and make a concerted effort to conquer his personal demons because there's NO WAY he's going to get away with, ANYTHING!!! He's made TOO MANY ENEMIES and TIMES ARE HARD. People are all too willing "TO SELL" stories about his personal failings to the tabloid press. To be perfectly frank, I'm still not convinced that his "car accident" wasn't part of a "SET UP" especially since he was observed "partying" in a "questionable" bar. The Phoenix area has been hit "extremely" hard by the "Great Recession" and "lonely", "troubled" men with money are very easy targets for scam artists.

I agree with you...MG should stay off the radar at all costs. Let's say he had an accident last night after he was out drinking....Imagine the damage OG would have done over that! Fortunately for Mel that didnt happen but if he's out "clubbing" (at his age?) - he's setting himself up for problems.

You are right too about people's willingness to sell stories for $$ in return. I dont know if the car accident was a set-up or not (I doubt it) BUT what is he thinking driving in a city he's probably not familiar with.....hell he drove his car into a hillside in Malibu and he's been driving those roads for years. Why get behind the wheel of car in a city you dont know well and try to get to the hospital his dad is in? Would have been smarter to have a car service drive him (that way had there been an accident - he could have stayed in the back of the car and this story wouldnt be here now). Honestly if he's gonna drop how much money to charter a plane to fly him to Phoenix, why not spend a few hundred more and hire a driver.

I recall at one point he and Robyn owned 2 planes but i heard they sold them

FN - I noticed the words on the screen too and found it VERY ironic (sorry but that kinda stuff can't be set-up - that was organic).

He needs to lay low - 1000% out of sight for about a year or 2 - then try again w/ Hollywood. That would allow enuf time to pass for folks to forget all this crap (and TMZ to go out of biz after losing hits) - then he can try to restart his career.

BUT he seems to prefer keeping himself out there which in one way is good and another it's bad....the bad is the fact that people (both pro-mel and non-pro-mel) keep blogging about him and his every move....neither side lets go of his life.

a few years of outta sight = outta mind...the public is quick to forget stuff

At least Mel Gibson knows what a $#!^^er is used for. Drunk or sobber.

FLOPPSTER - if you're trying to get me worked up by referencing my sexuality - give it ur best shot....it'll be a cold day in HELL before I let someone try to get under my skin.

Oh and about the remark that at least Mel knows what a sn@tch is used for...drunk or sober....YUP he sure does. It produced a child out of wedloc and brought him to his knees AND it's been known to destroy even the strongest of men.

Sadly what he didnt know was just how dangerous it can be...

Idiot, I don't care if you fc a tree or get it on with your dog, not my problem. If you love playing in fudge, who am I to stop ya.

OMG, dude. I do not care if you are gay, hun. I do not care if Jodie is a Lesbian. I wouldn't even care if Mel Gibson said he is gay. I still will love Mel Gibson, but what a waste of a sexy man, if he was one. I remember thinking the lead singer of Wham was goodlooking, then I found out he was gay too. There are so many nice looking men that are gay, and I am like WTF is up with this? What? Leave all the ole ugly farts for the women, huh? LOL
