Thank You Chipotle For The Event Prize

In case you didn’t know, Chipotle is the best restaurant in the world (especially the one on Main St. in Bexley, OH).  So I was super excited when they offered us an event prize for our August 28, 2011 Family Fun Ride at Three Creeks Metro Park.

I didn’t expect them to send us 5 coupons for dinner for 4!  That includes 4 entrees (burritos, bowls, whatever), chips and their awesome guacamole, and drinks for everyone!  That’s like a $35 value… x5.

Looking for a Chipotle near you?  You can check their website at

Come out on August 28, 2011 for our Family Fun Ride for a chance to win one of these coupons.  Everyone will receive a free chance to win the prize of their choice just for showing up, and it’ll be a great time.
