An offer she couldn't refuse

Chicago restauranteur Robert Magiet was driving town one January morning when he spotted a shivering tamale vendor braving frigid temperatures. Her name was Yolanda, and her Tamale Cart was near Humboldt Park. On the spur of the moment, he decided to make her an offer she couldn't refuse.

He bought our her entire day's supply -- close to 10 dozen tamales. Then he gave her a big tip and sent her on her way. After she'd gratefully gone home to warm up, Magiet loaded up the copious quantities of tamales he'd purchased and distributed them to some of Chicagoland's homeless population.
