You can now pre-order the 2017-2018 Denver Dining Out Passbook. for only $39 (normally $99). Books should start arriving the week of the 14th but due to mail delays, they may not be mailed until the week of the 21st.
In my first year of using the Denver Dining Out Passbook, I found it to be a great motivator and guide to exploring the Denver food scene. Whenever I was hungry I’d whip out the book and choose a new place to try out – even if the place wasn’t highly rated online, I knew that by using the Passbook at least I wouldn’t be paying full price. It’s like a magical golden ticket you can use — for food!
In case you’re unfamiliar, the Passbook offers some great deals (like buy one entree, get one free) for some fabulous spots around town and you have a whole year to use up all the discounts. Just give your server your passbook before they ring up the check, they’ll mark off the deal as used, and you get cash money back in your pocket after having a lovely meal. It’s pretty darn sweet.
Also this year the Passbook will feature discount codes for Chicken Fight and Top Taco 2018! Yaasssss.
The one thing that trips me up about the Passbook is it’s organized alphabetically by restaurant name. But what I really need is for the restaurants organized by neighborhood/location — especially when I’m in some part of Denver I don’t really know, but I’m looking to use the Passbook. (Although this year’s book they do list the neighborhood alongside the name of the restaurant.)
That’s why I’m sharing my personal Denver Dining Out Passbook map . Here’s the key to reading the map:
- Dark green: Offering BOTH a buy one drink, get one free AND a buy one entree, get one free opportunity (must be used on separate visits).
- Light green: Only offering BOGO entree deal.
- Orange: At least one BOGO deal that lists a special type of drink or food item for which it’s valid.
- Purple: Offer has some sort of price/day/time restrictions, so be sure to check the deal description.
I’m probably most excited to see Max’s Wine Dive and White Pie on this list. I still haven’t been to either and my fellow Denver food bloggers RAVE about these places! Also, my local Thai fave Aloy Modern Thai is on there and Biju’s Curry Shop (featured in the photo on this post) appears once again.
You’ve got until August 15, 2018 to use these awesome deals before the next year’s book comes out.
