...or so some press release from Chipotle reminds us today. Just don't tell that to the folks at the McKinney Avenue spot in Uptown, where the burrito
--named for Oso Closo after it won a Chipotle-sponsored contest--was being advertised for sale as early as Tuesday this week. Was when I popped in for a quick dinner that night, at least.

Anyway, to answer your question: Yes, I ordered it. It was delightful, if a little pricey at $8 a pop. (Oso Closo frontman Adrian Hulet may think it's "kind of sweet" that they charge extra money for the guacamole that comes in his band's burrito. But I, for one, do not.)

The promotion runs through March 12. At that point, you'll have to again relay to a member of the staff the ingredients you want in your burrito on command, per standard Chipotle protocol, rather than simply blurting out the name of a local band in an awkward--at best, let's face it--exchange.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
