Activist sits in pool of beans for 24 hours to save Mexican restaurant

He’s full of beans — and determination.

A wacky California activist sat in an inflatable pool full of frijole dip for 24 hours to save his favorite Mexican Restaurant from going out of businesses.

Hunter Ray Barker said he hoped the spicy stunt outside Los Toros in Los Angeles on Monday would draw support and attention to the 54-year-old eatery, which was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have a golden opportunity to grab the bull by the horns and support local businesses in a big explosive way and so why not?” said Barker, who visited the restaurant while growing up.

As part of the pinto-centric performance, he also got a tattoo of the Mexican joint’s bull-shaped logo while sitting in the dip and sporting a Los Toros T-shirt.

Asked how he planned to go to the bathroom, he spilled the beans.

“I do have a funnel that’s connected to me right now so any time I do have to go No. 1, that is connected to a bag that’s attached to my body. For No. 2, that is a different story. We will just have to wait and see,” he said. 

Nicolas Montano, the owner of the restaurant, was stunned to hear about Barker’s plot.

“I was like ‘Are you sure? Are you sure you want to do this?’” Montano said. “And he goes, ‘Yeah, I think it would be fun.’ ”
