The Passport DC program had a preview last night at Suburbia, the stationary bar positioned just across from Union Market. Freshly made fruity drinks and craft beers were flowing in abundance while program coordinator Becky Ohlin was on hand selling passports and providing additional information about the Passport Program, which will be making its debut in Washington, D.C., this summer. Owners of a DC passport book will get exclusive 2-for-1 drink offers starting on May 22 until September 7 at over 40 participating D.C., bars, pubs, dives, and restaurants that include the likes of Masa 14, Roofers Union, and Penn Social. The passports are available for purchase at the Passport DC website and are priced at $20 each. Buy yours before May 22 and you’ll get $5 discount.
About the Passport Program: It started as a simple community project in Denver, in 2013, but it has since grown into a national program encompassing 10 cities including Seattle and Brooklyn. Its aim is to introduce people to some of the best eating and drinking establishments in each participating city and help them learn more about the local food and drink culture.
