You worked late again and missed happy hour. Shit, there goes that 2-for-1 deal you were looking forward to all day.
But wait, the Denver Passport is back! All summer long from Memorial Day through Labor Day, get 2-for-1 drink specials at 60 establishments with your Passport. Upon redemption, bartenders will stamp your nifty pocket-sized black book to prove you were there.
“Last year Denverites received more than 20,000 stamps over the course of the program,” said PJ Hoberman, co-founder of The Passport Program, which was launched in June 2013.
This year’s venues include some of the best restaurants, bars and breweries in the city including Bones, Colt & Gray, Crooked Stave, Former Future Brewing Co., Freshcraft, Infinite Monkey Theorem, La Biblioteca, Lala’s, The Populist, Session Kitchen, Star Bar, Station 26, Ste. Ellie, Stem Ciders, Vesper Lounge, and more.
“In the last year, more than 100 new restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries, and wineries have opened in Denver,” said Hoberman in a press release. “By mixing well-known drinking establishments with those just opening their doors, the Passport will act as the ultimate where-you-must-drink guide for the summer of 2014.”
