A mayor walks into an Indian restaurant, and...
In a show of continued support for the business owners of Midtown Global Market, R.T. Rybak took an hour out of his schedule to work the lunch rush at Hot Indian Foods.
Hot Indian owner Amol Dixit said he invited the former mayor of Minneapolis to work the line just because "he's such a great guy -- I knew he would do it. I think it's awesome that he continues to show support of local businesses this way. Just awesome."
In between bites of his own Indurrrito, which he described as "so unbelievably good," he learned to roll the curry-stuffed house-made roti.
As a show of his appreciation, Dixit pledged to donate a portion of the day's profits to Rybak's charitable organization Generation Next, which aims to close the achievement and opportunity gaps for students of color in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
