A man walks into a bar. He says to the barkeep, “I’d like a beer—and a free one for my friend here.” The bartender’s eyes narrow—then widen. She throws back her head with a hardy laugh. “Ah, I see you have a Downtown Saving Pass! Drink up, my friends, with a BOGO special!”
There’s really no punchline here. If you don’t have a Downtown Savings Pass yet, you’re missing out on some stellar deals at downtown restaurants, bars, shops and boutiques. The web-based app by Downtown Partnership gives you easy access to deals and discounts at almost 70 locally-owned downtown businesses.
“The Discover Downtown Savings Pass not only makes it fun and affordable to explore our great shops and restaurants, it’s another reminder of the vital importance of shopping locally to support our community,” says Susan Edmondson, Downtown Partnership president and CEO.
Of course there are lots of restaurants, bars, breweries and distilleries included, but you’ll also find salons, galleries, coffee shops, boutiques and more. We love the buy-one-get-one-free deals, and there are also free appetizers and 15%, 20% and 50% off offers for food, drink and clothing and gift retailers. We’re fans of discounted admission to CityROCK, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum and the new 3E’s Comedy Club too.
