First free food and now a (live tweeted) food-safety meeting. Chipotle continues their attempt to woo customers back after several public health scares traced back to their restaurants.

The fast-casual Mexican food chain’s ongoing issues with food contamination — with E Coli outbreaks in restaurants from September to November — have led to declining sales and even a criminal investigation.

Now, seemingly in an effort to get back into their customer’s good graces, Chipotle restaurants nationwide will be closed on Monday until 3 p.m. for a company-wide food safety meeting.

During the briefing, executives will explain how the food contamination occurred, reported USA Today. Last month at a conference, Chipotle chief creative and development officer, Mark Crumpacker, said people would get “a detailed story about what happened.”

And you don’t have to be a Chipotle employee to tune in.  In addition to the 50,000 expected employees — who will gather in conference rooms and movie theaters — to hear the broadcast, customers can also turn to Twitter and Periscope starting at 12 p.m. EST to get the latest on the meeting.

The company also continues their free food campaign. Vouchers for complimentary burritos will be given away until 6 p.m. Can’t make it in to a Chipotle today? Not to worry, just text “RAINCHECK” to 888-222 and you’ll receive a link where you can enter your name and zip code.

The company will text you in a few days with a coupon you can redeem for one of their mission burritos.

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.

The more she tries to show that she is ‘of the people’ the more she bugs me. She is a rich chicky who has no clue how regular people live. She should just stay in her mansion, have her cook prepare her dinner, and shut up. In the April 6 issue, she says that she is ‘incredibly close to the common woman” – as a, I suppose “common woman” that comment offends me. What does she consider herself? She needs to get help with words before she speaks.
