Take a culinary journey around Breckenridge and its over 100 Bars and Restaurants while earning savings with the seasonal Dining Passport.
Online PR News – 10-October-2019 – Breckenridge, Colorado – It's October in Breckenridge, Colorado and Summer Season is winding down. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp.. And Main Street is navigable! Many may not consider this time of year a desirable time to visit, but others would argue that they are wrong. Some may not know, but Fall is a fantastic time of year to visit Breckenridge! Offering 360 degree views of the beautiful scenery and Fall foliage, the ability to explore the town while it is less crowded and, finally, the chance to take advantage of all the incredible seasonal DISCOUNTS! While some may refer to this time of year as 'Spooky Season', in Breckenridge the mountain town locals fondly know this season as '2-4-1 Season.'
Earning its nickname from restaurants offering two for the price of one entrees during off season, in the beginning '2-4-1 Season' was a treat enjoyed only (or at least mainly) by locals. But, as the notion caught on and restaurants embraced the idea of the opportunity to entice more business during what was typically their slower season, the concept took off! What was once a discount given to a familiar face is now documented in a detailed pamphlet listing different deals sorted by restaurant. Now this handy discount dining guide is known as the 'Dining Passport.'
Each Fall, beginning sometime at the end of September or beginning of October, the new Dining Passport is released in all its glory! A true foodie's dream, the booklet offers those in its possession the opportunity to treat Breckenridge as their culinary destination. Although the deals may differ a bit from those of the past (restaurants not being constrained to the 'two for the price of one' discount) the savings are still considerable. This Fall Season, for example, the popular Carboy Winery is offering a four-course meal for an unbelievable price of $25!
"I look forward to getting my Dining Passport every Spring and Fall!" exclaims Deb Kroepler, with Ski Country Resorts a popular vacation rental company in Breckenridge. "During busier seasons, enjoying a nice meal out in Breckenridge can be pricey and require a lot of coordinating, as reservations are often necessary. However in fall, after the crowds subside, getting a table at some of Breckenridge's most desirable dining establishments is less of a hassle and being able to save considerable amounts on the meal (thanks to the Dining Passport!) gives my husband and I the opportunity to really explore the menus of some of our favorite local Restaurants."
Dining Passports can be purchased at all participating restaurants or the Breckenridge Welcome Center and are valid for two people. The cost is a $10 donation that benefits Summit County Cares (including the Summit Community Cares Clinic, FIRC, Advocates for Victims of Assault and Social Services).
