Update 11/29: Really, no update. Chipotle PR sent me an email saying they’d let me know when the opening would be rescheduled. The Gazette ran a small piece in today’s edition, saying essentially the same thing. 

Just a heads up, in case you were planning on stopping by the new Schenectady (Niskayuna) Chipotle (which was slated to open tomorrow, November 29):

I stopped by there today, for their pre-opening celebration (to which I was specifically invited). The restaurant was not open, and the construction workers I spoke with said they’d be open “maybe next week”. The building did not have power, gas, or food. Those poor guys were surprised to see me, to say the least. At least they were nice.

I haven’t gotten a confirmation from Chipotle headquarters as of yet.  Updates coming.
