How layered, multi-faceted, and widely known is the foodie’s relationship to guacamole?
It’s a fairly intense question, and a little complicated, but this longtime dynamic can be best summed up by a t-shirt slogan that’s become rather popular in recent years: “Yes, I Know the Guacamole Is Extra.”
Even if you’ve never worn such a tee, or seen one, you know what every avo-obsessed dine-outer knows: That lil’ tub of guac is going to cost ya, not a ton of coin, probably, but not a nickel or two, either.
Which makes National Avocado Day such a treat for aficionados of the alligator pear. For while we may throw a few extra slices onto a sammie at home on July 31 — that’s the green-tastic occasion, oh yes — Chipotle Mexican Grill is taking pit it all further.
Wait. Did we mean “taking it all further”? No, actually, we’ll leave the “pit” in there.
On July 31, guests at the spicy eats chain’ll snag a “FREE guac with one entrée today when you order online or in-app.”
Cue the siren emoji or whatever you choose when you want to make an essential piece of information stand out: This does not apply to orders placed at the restaurant itself.
So guac-ists of SoCal, wait no longer: This offer is on through closing time at participating Chipotle Mexican Grills.
Yes, I Know the Guacamole Is Extra, could be a tee for all of us.
And, yes, I Know July 31st is National Avocado Day, and Guac Specials Are Possible, Like at Chipotle, is also a good t-shirt slogan, but perhaps a little lengthy.
