Beacon Street #BurritUp
Wednesday, September 9, 2009 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
Are you a burrito addict?
Do you dream about burritos only to wake up drooling?
Do you think that burritos are the most perfect food ever created?
Then you need to come to the....
Beacon Street #BurritUp!!!!
That's right! It's the first ever #BurritUp (think PubCrawl, but substitute the beer for burritos).
Find yourself a burrito buddy and grab an unscorecard and tell us what you like about four of the top shops in the Boston burrito scene - Chipotle, Boloco, Anna's & Boca Grande.
What could be better than hanging with like minded burrito-loving friends and eating some great food? Honestly, we really don't know so were not sure why we are even asking such a stupid question.
How this works:
Round 1 will take place starting at Chipotle at 6:30pm where we will test out the first of four burritos before moving along to Boloco
We will then walk or take the T from Boloco to where Round 2 takes place at Anna's Taqueria and Boca Grande
Can't make it to Chipolte to kick off the #BurritUp? Don't fret, you can join us at any time in the crawl, but we hope to see you from beginning to end so we can capture your thoughts on video to showcase the Beacon Street Burrito and Boston SoMe scene.

Are the burritos free?
Sorry, this is not a sponsored event, but we have reached out to the shops to see if they'll give burritup crawlers a discount. Hey, we know you love burritos and Boston burritos are wicked cheap!
How the beans will I eat four burritos?
We are suggesting you hook up with a burrito buddy and split the cost and the burritos.
Are we trying to crown a champion?
No. In fact, we know that people have very strong feelings about their burritos. The scene is vibrant and there is plenty of room for competition. We encourage you to participate in the video and tell us what you like about each of the burritos particularly your favorite place.
Is there an afterparty?
Nothing is planned but there are some cool places in neighboring Allston.
Sooooo.....Are you in? Then please sign up so we know how many people to expect. See you soon!
