Chipotle’s latest plan to bring back business — free booze.
Still recovering from an E. coli outbreak that sent customers running in 14 states, the fast-casual Mexican chain now offers happy hour specials to get diners back.
Half-price and two-for-one alcoholic drinks are available in eight states, including Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.
But not New York, alas — or maybe, not.
Beer bargains are among the mix of drink specials at certain Chipotles.
Deals on alcohol at Chipotle vary by location, but they all run from 4-8 p.m. That is a wide window for discount swilling, especially in parts of the U.S. where people like to eat dinner on the early side.
So drink — and burrito — responsibly.
