This summer Seattleites have another reason to raise a glass, as The Passport Program makes it’s Pacific Northwest debut. The uber-popular “boozy field guide”, founded in Denver in 2013, is expanding to 10 new cities this summer, including Seattle. The promotion has gained such a following that in Denver the 2015 passport sold out in a matter of hours. Offering drink specials at 42 of Seattle’s favorite bars, distilleries, restaurants and breweries, the locally curated, pocket-sized passport can be purchased both online (www.passportprogram.com/seattle) and at E. Smith Mercantile (208 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98104).
The cost per passport is $20 and it entitles recipients to one special at each participating establishment (over $300 in savings). Once a deal has been redeemed, bartenders will imprint their bar’s page with an official Seattle Passport stamp, much like a government-issued Passport- creating a fun way to experience all that the city has to offer.The Passport is available now and is valid through Labor Day, September September 7th.
“With the majority of dining and drinking promotions taking place in the Fall and Spring, The Passport Program gives consumers a savvy way to get out there this summer and try new places, or another reason to frequent their favorite spot. It’s easy to cover the $20 cost by redeeming just two of the 42 deals,” says Amy Osgood, coordinator of The Passport Program. “Seattle is an exciting place for us to expand with such a diverse and ever-growing food and beverage scene. Our goal is to encourage Seattleites to eat, drink, date, clink, sip, crawl, explore, share, smile, imbibe, and enjoy.”
Some highlights of the Passport Program include 50% off a signature cocktail at Poppy, an $8 6-flight beer sampler at Ballard Beer Company, and an $8 specialty cocktail at E. Smith Mercantile. Check out a map and specials at: http://www.thepassportprogram.com/seattle#map .
