UPDATE 7/12/2019: (Shopping cart link has been updated) The 2019-2020 Denver Dining Out Passbook is now on pre-sale. If you head to the Dining Out Passbook Facebook page, they are currently promoting a discount code that will get you the 2019-2020 book for $39.99 (+ shipping). I couldn’t find any purchase links on the Denver DOP website, but here’s a direct link to enter the shopping cart where you can use the code they are promoting.

For the past couple of years people found my map of all the Passbook restaurants really helpful, so by popular request, I’ve done it again for the 2018-2019 Denver Dining Out Passbook.

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.

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:

  1. 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).
  2. Light green: Only offering BOGO entree deal.
  3. Orange: At least one BOGO deal that lists a special type of drink or food item for which it’s valid.
  4. Purple: One or more of the BOGO offers has some sort of price/day/time restrictions, so be sure to check the deal description.
  5. Gray: Restaurant has closed.

I’m probably most excited to see Colorado favorite Illegal Pete’s and top restaurants like Cattivella and Citizen Rail in this year’s book! Yaasssss. 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 July 31, 2019 to use these awesome deals before the next year’s book comes out.

  1. Thank you so much for putting this map together! I’ve been requesting one for the past few years, but was too lazy to make one.

        1. Oh wow John, thanks for the update. Do you know which dishes they are limiting it to? (I’ve also written to the restaurant to confirm the details of this change so the map will be updated.)

  2. Last year, I made a spreadsheet of the offerings noting neighborhood and offering type so that I could quickly find something in an area of town I wanted to explore or knew I would be in for a meal. You have saved me some time this year! Thanks!

  3. Hey Laura– thanks for putting this together; it’s a great resource. Sadly, blueprint closed recently (it’s right around the corner from me), and I thought you might want to update the map to reflect that. Thanks again.

    1. Oh wow, thanks for pointing that out, Phil. Sad that it’s closed — and only just a month or so after the passbook came out. I’ve updated the map – thanks for the tip!

    1. Denver deep dish rebranded to Crush pizza and tap. They are still honoring the book but only take off $12.50 of a large pizza which are $18.

  4. So helpful I asked the creators of the book for this a couple of times. Look forward to your next map! Do you take donations for your time?

    1. Thanks so much for sharing, Zoe! Great version of the map. I just got my book today so I updated the map on this page to include all the relevant info and new restaurants.

  5. Thank you so much for the map, Laura. It’s a huge help. I don’t know why the Passbook folks don’t do it, but I’m really grateful that you do. It makes it so much easier to pick restaurants to visit by location.

  6. Thank you so much! I’m such a visual person and have been saying for the last couple years that I need a map to see where all of these places are! 🙂 Thanks so much!

    1. Denver deep dish rebrandes to Crush pizza and tap. They are still honoring the book but only take off $12.50 of a large pizza which are $18.

  7. Thank you soooo very much for doing this! It is soooo helpful! I really think having your site last year to find which restaurants were in the Dining Out book in the areas where I would be meeting someone is the reason I got the book again. The book is not nearly as useful without a map. Thanks!
