Receive a burrito, bowl, salad or an order of tacos for just $2 after 6:00 p.m. on Halloween at Chipotle.  The catch is that you have to be wearing a farm inspired costume.  Chipotle suggests a farmer, crop, animal or farm machinery. 

Proceeds from the “Boorito” event will benefit The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and Farm Aid.  Chipotle is having this promotion to draw attention to their “wholesome, responsibly raised ingredients”. 

You can read more about this promotion on the Chipotle website

What do you think?  Is it worth the hassle of dressing up to save a few bucks?

Free Milwaukee Brewers Pumpkin Carving Template

October 10, 2009 by · 2 Comments
Filed under: Sports 

brewer pumpkinsHere’s a cool way to carve a neat pumpkin, save some cash, and show your Brewer pride this Halloween!  The Brewers have two free pumpkin carving templates - available in the “M” logo or the classic ball and glove logo.

Other Major League Baseball teams have free templates available as well, such as the Cubs and the Yankees.

If you’re looking for other unique pumpkin stencils, the History Channel has 24 free templates available, ranging from the usual cats, bats, and ghosts, to George Washington, the Statue of Liberty, and the American Flag.

When carving pumpkins with stencils you’ll want to make sure to follow directions carefully.  The Brewers stencils come with suggestions to use either a pumpkin carving set or a spoon, serrated knife, pin or nail, and a pairing knife.  Also, the stencils suggest three steps after you have removed the seeds from the pumpkin:

  1. Tape the stencil to your pumpkin.
  2. Using a nail, needle or toothpick, punch holes following the lines of the stencil. Remove the stencil when finished.
  3. Have your parents help you cut along the dotted lines you have made with the pin, nail or toothpick.

According to pumpkin carving instructions on eHow, it’s much safer to use a pumpkin carving tool than a knife, so you may want to consider picking a tool up at the store.
