If you’ve never eaten a lengua burrito or taco from downtown Bend’s Super Burrito, you have until Tuesday to make it happen. Because come Wednesday, Super Burrito will no longer exist.

Super Burrito Set To Close

If you’ve never eaten a lengua from downtown Bend’s Super Burrito, you have until Tuesday to make it happen.

Because come Wednesday, Super Burrito will no longer exist.

The decade-old establishment is closing its doors next week, making space for some presumably lame retail store on Northwest Minnesota Avenue.

The Bend Bulletin reported that the building’s owner is remodeling the structure and plans to put retail stores in the spaces once occupied by two other restaurants.

The Moreno family, owners and operators of Super Burrito, said they don’t know when and where they might open another Super Burrito, but Patty Moreno says downtown rents may keep them out of the city’s core, the Bulletin reported.

So, if you haven’t eaten a lengua burrito from this fine, low cost Mexican restaurant, then please, oh please, go and purchase one.

Viva la lengua!

Book Festivals of the West 2011

Each year readers and writers gather to celebrate the written word at book festivals, fairs, and writing conferences throughout the West. Although there are a few spring festivals, everything really begins to pick up in June, and the schedule remains busy through November. The offerings vary from those that concentrate on helping writers improve their craft, such as the Lighthouse Writers Workshop's retreat in Grand Lake, Colo. (July 10th-15th), to those that introduce writers to readers through panels, readings, and book signings, such as the Montana Festival of the Book in Missoula (October 5th-7th). Some, such as the Aspen Summer Words Festival (June 19th-24th), combine workshops and readings. The workshops charge fees, but plenty of the festivals are free to attend, including the Montana Festival of the Book in Missoula and the Equality State Book Fair in Casper. Most workshops are already accepting applications for this year. I've updated the Book Festivals of the West map with this year's information when it was available. Please let me know if there are any more events to add or update—I'll even throw this open for events in California and Texas. New West will run reports from the festivals again this year—we already have correspondents lined up for the Jackson Hole Writers Conference, Aspen Summer Words, and the Montana Festival of the Book, and are looking for more contributors.
