Chipotle is basically the Stage 5 Clinger ex of fast food chains. We used to have an amazing, loving relationship but they messed up bad.
Bad meaning E. Coli outbreak bad, so we feel pretty validated in our hesitance to open our hearts again.
Since their sales halted last summer, they’ve given out FREE chips and guac, 21 fuckin’ million burritos, and after taking a summer to find themselves, made plans to open a burger chain.
Most recently, Chipotle has learned that the fastest way back into America’s hearts might not be through our stomaches, but through our livers.
The company just launched the “Happy Four Hours” promotion— half price and 2-for-1 deals on margaritas and beer from 4 - 8 p.m.
So we’re healing slowly and it might just be time to give them a second chance...
The deal is only good at select locations in Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
You might notice a significant lack of ‘New York’ on that list. We see how it is, Chipotle.
It's too bad, tbh, because we as a collective city are definitely total suckers for a baller happy hour. You know this. We are literally so flippin' cheap.
Apparently, it's nothing personal, as Thrillist reports that the promotion faces restrictions from state and local liquor laws.
But that doesn't take away our serious FOMO. Whatever. We've moved on.[via Thrillist] [Feature Image Courtesy SeriousEats]
