A few weeks back we were running some errands out near the mall, when all of a sudden Angela began screaming. Very out of character. But she’s pointing and screaming and seems as happy as I’ve ever seen her.
The cause of the ruckus? A sign indicating that soon, on that very spot, a Chipotle was set to open. Once I saw what she was excited about, I was screaming, too.
Those who don’t know how damned good the burritos are in Colorado probably won’t get this. People in parts of the country that have Chipotles probably don’t get it, either, because you’re ungrateful bastards who take your blessings for granted. But if you know Chipotle and haven’t been able to get yer barbacoa on for two or three years, you know precisely where we’re coming from.
Yesterday it finally opened. And dudes, we were there. I had a barbacoa, black beans, verde salsa. Angela did the carnitas bowl with a couple kinds of salsa. Gods, for a few minutes all was right in the universe.
If you have a Chipotle, cherish it. If you’re in the W-S area, it’s on Hanes Mall Blvd. across from Silas Creek Crossing.
