With River North restaurant Mr. Beef facing threats of foreclosure, Mark DiPietro, who works nearby, is trying to drum up business for the restaurant and raise awareness of its plight. To that end, he'll be handing out free coupons for Mr. Beef sandwiches to the first 50 people to line up outside the restaurant (666 N. Orleans) Thursday at 12:30 PM. As part of his "Keep Mr. Beef Alive" campaign, he's also created a video on YouTube and a Facebook page.
