Burritos in motion
Hungering for more info about pedal-powered, yummy-food-bearing godsend the Burrito Bike? Heres some: the Bikes open every Saturday from 7pm-2am and if you live in the north end, itll bring you a handmade vegan or vegetarian burrito for $4 (delivery included). Owners Adam OReilly (the percussionist for Fall Horsie), and Sari Lightman (a member of Ghost Bees) are hardly newbies to the burrito-selling game---theyve sold burritos before, in booths at various community festivals. The Bikes meant to be less like a late-night pizza delivery service...and more like your friend coming over and dropping off a burrito for you, because youre hungry, says OReilly. Since it requires a whole lot of pedaling to get the burritos to their hungry new owners, the Bike is mainly running in the north end, where both Lightman and OReilly live. But if you live slightly outside the delivery area and are jonesing for a burrito, the pair are willing to make special arrangements for you---as long as you place a larger order. For now, the Bikes menu is going to stay burrito-based, to help keep the service accessible. In fact, Lightman and OReilly are so jazzed about the prospect of sustainably delivered food being affordably available that they want you to steal their idea. I think we both hope that there are copy-catters...I wouldnt mind if there was a Sandwich Cycle, says OReilly. Or a Wrap Walk, offers Lightman. The Burrito Bike takes pre-orders (especially if youre ordering in bulk). Call 454-9567 (but watch for that number to change).
