Chipotle’s Non-Burrito Pizzeria Concept Expands Eastward

1 Share

pizzerialocaleFor the last couple of years, Chipotle has been playing around with pizza at the few Pizzeria Locale eateries it has in Colorado. But now the eatery is looking to the east and seeing there are hungry mouths to feed in the Kansas City area, where another Locale is set to open this summer.

The Kansas City Star reports that a Pizzeria Locale restaurant will open up next door to an existing Chipotle in the Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City, MO, and will employ between 15-20 people.

The Pizzeria Locale idea, which is a partnership between Chipotle and restaurant founders Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, brings Chipotle’s made-to-order practices to the pizza business, using ovens that can blast a custom-made pizza in a matter of a few minutes.

The selection of Kansas City is interesting as it was one of the first (but not the first, as the Star writes) non-Colorado destinations for Chipotle when that chain first began expanding more than 15 years ago.

Stuckey and Mackinnon-Patterson opened their first Pizzeria Locale, a full-service restaurant, in 2011 in Boulder. Then Chipotle became interested and backed the opening of two quick-service locations in 2013 and 2014, both in Denver.

Now it’s a wait-and-see game to find out if Kansas City residents will take to this new pizza or if they’ll stick with the pies they know.

Holy Crap, Netflix’s Jessica Jones Just Cast Someone As Hellcat - YOOOOOO

1 Comment

Well, this is a surprise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel Jessica Jones has found a best friend for its titular character in Rachael Taylor, whose acting credits include Grey’s AnatomyCrisis, and the 2011 Charlie’s Angels reboot series. Here’s their description of the character:

Taylor will play Trish Walker, Jessica’s best friend, who works as a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as “Patsy” Walker. As Jessica’s closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career.

Patsy Walker? As in “Patricia Walker Baxter Hellstrom” Patsy Walker? As in Hellcat??

A bit of background: Patsy Walker made her first appearance as a character in the original Miss America comic in the ’40s, after which she was spun off into several teen-humor/romance titles like Patsy and HedyPatsy and her Pals, and Patsy Walker. Then in the ’70s Marvel went, “Lol screw that, make her a superhero,” and gave her a new backstory where she was actually the daughter of the comic book writer who’d written all those lovable Patsy comics of old. Then she joined the Avengers and later the Defenders, using martial-arts training that was taught to her by Moondragon. Most recently she was a regularly recurring character in Charles Soule’s She-Hulk short-lived title, too. Also, her soul might have been promised to Satan one time. Comics are weird, friends.

Walker and Jessica Jones aren’t exactly known for having a relationship with each other in the Marvel Universe. She also doesn’t appear in Alias, the comic book that outlines Jones’ origin story and which, given their recent casting of The Purple Man, seems to be what Netflix is basing their adaptation on. But that doesn’t matter, because we’re getting more live action versions of awesome female superheroes, which is tremendously awesome. Fingers crossed that one day we might also get a green-skinned Jennifer Walters to join the clique, too.

Thanks also to those of you who have been following along, and lending comments of support. I’m so proud of how everyone has rallied around this story, in ways that go so far beyond just raising money.
