Time to get back into the work swing of things after a happening Memorial Day. We hope your day off was filled with brunch, booze, and your Best Bitches.
Giveaway: We’ve partnered with the Passport Program, a two-for-one cocktail program that helps you explore your city’s best bars with great deals. The little black cocktail booklet offers deals at about 50 participating bars and restaurants. Just buy a booklet for $20, explore your city, collecting stamps at each bar you visit, and enjoying a little friendly competition with your friends. Last summer, the Bitches loved the Passport Program, with each of us visiting different locales, taking advantage of the warm weather to walk to new bars and different neighborhoods.
You can enter the Passport Program Giveaway by doing one of the following:
- Follow Bitches Who Brunch and the Passport Program on Twitter & tweet us your two must-visit bars.
- Head to our Facebook, and let us know which bars you’re most excited to try in the comments.
- Follow us on Instagram, then tag three friends in the comments on any of our recent cocktail posts—like this one, or this one.
