Winter is tough.
Shoveling snow. Bundling up. Waiting out in the cold for the BX that’s always late…
Luckily for all of us, the Winter Warmer is here to help by offering 2-for-1 drink specials at 20 or so of the hottest restaurants in Denver. This was the gift I was most delighted to receive this Christmas. (Thanks, Ariana.)
This year, the Winter Warmer hits Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins in full force. Similar to the Passport Program, the Winter Warmer is designed for exploration and giving customers a reason to visit new and upcoming restaurants they might not have thought about before. Think of the Winter Warmer as your fun enabler friend who doesn’t know quite when to quit… it’s kind of like that…but you’ll save money and give back to a worthy cause throughout the process.
For every Winter Warmer sold, The Passport Program will donate $1 to Food Bank of the Rockies. With each dollar providing four meals to hungry Coloradans, Winter Warmer donations could provide up to 22,000 meals across the state.
The 2016 Winter Warmer is on sale now for $20. Last year, it sold out in 48 hours so you should probably get on this.
In the new year, Clare and I are sticking with our 2015 habit of cooking at home more often than we dine out at restaurants. The Winter Warmer scratches my restaurant itch for the price of an award-winning cocktail. The other night I made some of the softest sandwiches ever: fresh French bread with cannellini beans, cucumber and a perfectly ripe avocado. I ate mine condiment-less and Clare doused hers in Follow Your Heart vegan Ranch dressing.
Cook at home and drink on the town! Be sure to tag your photos, tweets and everything else with #WinterWarmer along your travels and who knows, maybe I’ll see you out there.
Stay warm, my friends.
