Alonzo Alcaraz was featured on Fox Chicago
for a comedy sketch that he posted on Youtube recently. It’s either a nod or a jab to the dibs culture that Winter weather brings to Chicago each year. When snow accumulates around parking spots in the city, people use lawn chairs as placeholders for parking spots that they spent time digging out. Dibs is a tradition that newcomers to the city hate because of how inconvenient it can be. Those who honor the tradition do so because they are sick of interlopers enjoying the fruits of their labor. Juan Jose is a guy that challenges the tradition and makes it work in his favor. He’s the Dibs Hustler and he’s found a lucrative niche between these two worlds.
