Plagued by climate change, soaring costs, and intense competition, the American family farmer is in frightening straits. That's why Chipotle chose that theme for its second-annual Boorito night: a tasty blend of bargains for you, and cash support for the family farm. Show up at your neighborhood Chipotle tonight in a farm-related costume and score a burrito, taco, salad, or bowl for just $2. Proceeds — up to $1 million — go to benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and Farm Aid. It all goes down from 6 p.m. till closing time And just in case you're tempted to toss on grandpa's feed-store cap and call it a costume, get this: The best-dressed partyers could win up to $2,500 in cash prizes. Find more — including contest rules and a short film considering the hardships of farming — on the website. — Cicora Chipotle.com/boorito.
