Man Buys Out Multiple Street Vendors’ Tamales So They Can Go Home During Cold Snap
When the temperatures reach single digits, it's easy for the wind to make it feel like double digits below zero, and Chicagoans know this better than most.
Robert Magiet knows the cold is dangerous, but as a restaurant owner, he realizes the need to remain open to make ends meet.
Robert has made it his goal to leave his restaurant, TaKorea Cocina, to walk the street, and buy out every tamale vendor in his neighborhood, so they can go home early, and not risk the cold all day.
With prices of around $16 a dozen, he walked to multiple vendors, buying 15 dozens from each of them.
