The series kicks off with The State of Arizona Farmland on March 9, focusing on Blue Sky Organic Farms in west Phoenix. Viewers can watch the films on-demand films for $7.50 or purchasing an annual Good Food Film Series all-access pass for $65. Snag tickets here.

Free Books for Not Free Burritos

For National Read Across America Day 2021 (Tuesday, March 2), each location of Someburros is handing out free books. With every purchase of a $25 Burro Bag, customers get a copy of the children's book The Taco Stand by Tim Vasquez. The bag though has four burros — bean and cheese, red or green chili beef — one pint of rice, and one pint of beans. At the moment, the ever-expanding Mexican eatery has 11 Valley locations, so there's no excuse not to hit one up.
