Illegal Pete's providing burritos to anyone volunteering for Boulder Flood Relief on OCT 24 or 25
Illegal Pete's was born in Boulder, and enjoys being part of the community with our two locations on the Hill and Pearl Street. Thanks to the idea and determination of intern extraordinaire Amy Osgood, Illegal Pete's is organizing a group of employees, friends, and able-bodied folks to volunteer for Boulder Flood Relief on Thursday, October 24 and Friday, October 25th. For just a couple hours of work, Pete's will provide a free burrito for anyone volunteering, they just need to sign up here. Upslope has also generously offered to donate free drink tickets to be used in their taprooms for volunteers. Volunteers should plan on wearing old clothes that they don't mind getting dirty. The two shifts are:
Thursday, October 24th
Check in between 9 and 10am, work til 1 or 2pm
Friday, October 25th
Check in between 1 and 2pm, work til 4 or 5pm
Address: 2800 Pearl St.

Illegal Pete's is a fresh Mex restaurant with an emphasis on seeking out the highest quality ingredients to make the tastiest and healthiest food possible. The restaurants also carry all Colorado quality draft beer. Inspired by "Mission style" burritos popularized in San Francisco in the '60s and '70s, the first Illegal Pete's was established by Pete Turner on the Hill in Boulder in 1995. The combination of quick, deliciously filling burritos and an alternative, relaxed environment has become popular with hipsters, college students, athletes, and musicians nationwide: in fact, international pop songwriter Jack Johnson first received the call saying Universal Records wanted to sign him while he was eating a burrito at Illegal Pete's.
Illegal Pete's has earned a reputation for helping the music community, winning awards like Westword's "Best Place to Eat and Hang Out With Rock Stars" in response to the Starving Artist Program, which feeds road weary bands touring through Denver and Boulder. Also winning a Westword award was the "Pete's Pints" program, which helps raise money for local bands to tour; and Greater Than Collective, Illegal Pete's unconventional local record label, has also received acclaim for helping local bands. They were recently featured in MTV's "This is the Place."
