chip off the old burrito


definitely one of my favorite fast food choices. chipotle mexican grill has quite a bit going for it besides its recent move to cut ties with parent company mcdonalds. yes it sports a trendy look, sponsors a cycling team, has delicious food, and a simple menu, but they are also committed to local produce, family farms, and naturally raised chicken.

apparently october 31 is free burrito day (as long as you wear some tinfoil into the store).

Tinfoil?

Good to know that Chipotle supports local growers and organic chicken. Right on!

It sounds like there'll be some photo ops on tinfoil day.

How much did they pay you for that great commercial? You have me sold. I have never been before, but I'm as good as there. Hunting up some tinfoil for my free burrito too. AND,.. I like the way you framed this shot.

Laurie - Ya, the tinfoil is because they wrap their burritos in tinfoil. Kind of lame, but you get it.

Wayne - I guess it's an annual event, I can't wait!

Virginia - I'm hoping a Chipotle employee reads this entry and hooks me up!

bw, what's this bout a free burrito?
I think there's a Chip near Foothill too, am I right? if yes, then i've been to both chips in Pasadena. i'm a bit surprised i don't go more often to them.
btw, do u know if they have free wifi?

Yep, almost out to Arcadia on Foothill in a shopping plaza. Not sure on the wifi...
