Chipotle Will Give You a Free Burrito If You Do This 

In case you are one of those strange creatures who isn’t addicted to the Internet, Chipotle, everyone’s favorite sort-of-kind-of-healthy chain, has had a slew of run-ins with E. coli and norovirus over the past few months. So naturally, people are a little bit scared to eat there. But last week, the CDC declared the E. coli outbreak over and, today, all Chipotle stores closed for a few hours for an all-staff meeting on food safety. And now, it looks like they’re hoping to get customers back in the door with free burritos.

I will shamelessly take the bait. Read more »

Indego And Cuba Libre Team Up To Reward Bike Sharers

cubalibrephillyAttention bike riders: Philly’s own bike share program, called Indego, is partnering with Cuba Libre to offer a free tapas dish to anyone who shows an Indego key and spends at least $15 on food.

Here’s how it works: Present a bike rental key during lunch, brunch or dinner and your server will bring you a free pineapple-guacamole Cubano along with your table’s $15 food purchase. Cuba Libre describes the Cubano as a “classic tapas item (that) features avocado, grilled golden pineapple, roasted jalapeños, fresh lime juice and extra virgin olive oil, and is served with crispy plantain chips.” This is Indego’s first dining partnership.

You can access Indego’s 600 bikes parked at 60 stations (including one close to Cuba Libre at 2nd & Market, just sayin’) by buying a membership or paying on the spot with a credit card – something we wish car shares would get into.

A Chance To Be Food Truck Royalty At Mt. Airy’s Street Fare

Last year's Street Fare in Mt. Airy.

Last year’s Street Fare in Mt. Airy.

Back for another year, Mt. Airy’s Street Fare is coming this September (the 27th to be exact) to bring everything from notable local restaurants, to craft brews, to award-winning food trucks all to Germantown Avenue.

But there’s a catch. Lacking local funding this year, the organizers have a new plan: an Indiegogo page now allows you to donate and help fund the event. And they’ve got a bunch of perks to offer in return.
