On Sunday, June 16 from 2:30 to 7
p.m., the Denver Passport, a summerlong program designed to promote local Denver restaurants, bars, breweries, and wineries will host its release party at Lola. The passport offers two-for-one specials at 56 venues, aiming to help Denverites find new, independent, local places to hang out.
Among the participating restaurants are hot spots like Old Major, Corner House, and the Squeaky Bean and older Denver favorites like Jax Fish House, Parallel Seventeen, and Fuel Cafe. Those in search of a drink, will find a wide selection of options from Bar Car and Billy's Inn to the Rackhouse Pub and cultish brewery Crooked Stave.
"We're trying to give people an excuse to explore Denver's booming beverage scene," says Casey Berry, one of the brains behind the passport. "Helping people find new, interesting, and awesome spots to hang out makes our day," adds PJ Hoberman who worked with Berry on the project.
The Passport is valid until Labor Day. At the end of the summer, a closing event - Around the World in Eighty Days- will give passport holders the chance to redeem their stamps for chances to win prizes and other perks.
