Passport to My New Favorite Bar + Giveaway!
Anyone who knows me knows I’m always on the hunt for the perfect spot to enjoy a night out with friends or a lover. But it’s so easy to just walk or uber somewhere nearby and never really find that magical spot.
This year, I’m pledging to get out even more and explore the great things in my city. Whether it’s a little local place, with great wine — let’s face it, they’ve gotta have great wine! — or a new cocktail bar with hot bartenders and hotter drinks, I’m in. But being a bit of a creature of habit, once I find somewhere, I kinda wanna stay a while. Which is why I’m stoked about this new thing my friend in Seattle turned me onto: The Passport Program.
Basically, it’s a little black book of great ideas in the form of cool places to get a drink in the area. My Seattle pal is a food and drinks writer, so she knows all the best places to get drinks, and it looks like she packed em all in. I’m looking forward to heading up north this summer to get a tour of the town with her and her fab suggestions.
And lucky me, there’s one for L.A., too. Angelinos know all too well the perils of getting a little stuck in your ‘hood and not branching out enough. But the city manager picked spots from 60 (!) bars and restaurants around town, and I for one am excited to find my new favorite cocktail. Oh, and did I mention it’s $20?
When I told The Passport peeps how excited I am about it, they even gave me 20 to give away to you loves. Just post in the comments with your city or one you’re going to visit soon (they’re in a dozen cities and this works til Labor Day!), and I’ll pick a bunch of folks to have a guaranteed delicious summer.
Cheers to great drinks and great adventures!
