CHICAGO (CBS) — Head to Manny’s Deli for a free sandwich on Tuesday – but don’t forget your mask.
The free food started as a challenge. A couple of weeks ago on Twitter, Manny’s Cafeteria & Delicatessen – 1141 S. Jefferson St. – said if they could go 30-days without having to tell a customer to wear a mask properly, they would host a day of free sandwiches.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Rising Temperatures Through The Weekend But Snow Possible Next Week
That did not work out.
But an anonymous donor stepped in, and on Tuesday, Manny’s will be handing out up to 1,000 free sandwiches to anyone wearing a mask – correctly.
The sandwiches will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors open at 9 a.m.READ MORE: Families Fight To Keep Memorial Trees Offered Through Chicago Park District After Being Told Of Golf Course Plans
