Chipotle BOORITO 2010: The Horrors of Processed Food

This was sent to us by Katherine Newell Smith KNS Promotion Inc.:

Chipotle is presenting “BURRITO 2010: The Horrors of Processed Food” ...and it is a bit different than BOORITO of years past.

Here’s how it works: stop by any Chipotle on Halloween, Sunday, October 31 between 6pm and closing time dressed up as a Horrific Processed Food item and, as a thank you for a $2 donation, you will get a huge, gourmet burrito made to your specifications. Chipotle will then donate up to $1 million dollars to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.

Are You An Anonymous Gifter?

What if you could give just $25 and know that it would make a considerable difference to someone right here in our area?

Favorite Restaurant

So, I have been in Chicago for the past few days getting out and checking out the sites - it is crazy how much that town has changed since I lived there. It’s always good to get back to my roots and the food there – unreal. I forget how many great restaurants there are out there and that is probably because I spend my life in one. So, I need some help. I don’t have much time to get out so I need some recommendations for some of Virginia and DC’s best restaurants. Any type of food, any type of ambiance – I just want to know what the next place is that I should try. Hook a brother up.

Also, in case you want to follow me further, check out my blog at http://stevenlukisblog.wordpress.com/. Look forward to seeing you there.
