Now that it’s October, we finally feel comfortable talking about Halloween with the excitement and frequency of a theatrical 6-year-old.

Chipotle just announced a Halloween special that’s getting us even more jazzed about the holiday, which we didn’t know was possible. On October 31st from 5 p.m. to close, participating chains around the country will give out burritos (“booritos,” as it were) for just $3. The deal applies to burrito bowls, salads and tacos, too.

The catch? Customers must add “something unnecessary” to their Halloween costumes, as Chipotle attempts to draw attention to the fact that their competitors serve food with “spooky and unnecessary additives.”

“Scoring your Boorito is simple: Start with any standard Halloween costume, then include an unnecessary ‘additive,'” reads the webpage explaining the offer, which is followed by a list of costume suggestions that contain an unnecessary component, including Bearded Fairy, Martian Monroe, Nurse Stabby, Roller Mummy and Vamp-erina.

It all sounds simple enough we’re planning on dressing as Pizza Rat (Pack) but we are left with one lingering question: Will guac be extra?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
