Street tamales in Midtown, 60th St.

This morning on 60th between Park & Lex, saw an older couple with a cooler full of tamales. Was too sleepy to automatically switch into Spanish (especially because my Spanish is so bad!) but I basically gathered that they would only be there for breakfast, only one day a week, and that would probably always be Tuesday. I walk the same way every day and I've never seen them there before, but I don't know if they're moving around or if they just started doing this. I had just bought a banana so I didn't want one yet, but kept thinking about it...ran back there around 11 and couldn't find any evidence they'd ever been there! Did anyone else catch them?
