ClevelandPeople.Com Passport holders are a group that visit local ethnic restaurants and learn about the food and culture while enjoying camaraderie and a great meal. Passport holders get a special presentation from the staff and a special offer at the featured restaurant.
The ClevelandPeople.Com Passport is good for 1 year. The inside of your Passport will have the starting and renewal dates.
Your annual Passport costs $35. Each event will have a different cost but we plan on all events to be $25 or less including tax and tip. You can see the expected price of an upcoming event on the webpage for that event.
You purchase your annual Passport from ClevelandPeople.Com. At each event you pay the restaurant directly for the featured dinner and any extras you may order.
One of the best parts, we think, about the ClevelandPeople.Com Passport Program is that you don’t have to have a companion to participate. We realize that not everyone wants to try new things but that shouldn’t stop you, a true adventurer, from having fun. This is not a “couples event” so it is perfect opportunity if you are unattached or if your friends don’t like this kind of thing to participate.
This may vary depending on the restaurant and time of year. But in general, dress for a nice restaurant. Business casual is always appropriate and ethnic garb is fun and acceptable.
When you purchase your annual Passport, you will be eligible to attend the special restaurant events, and possibly other ethnic and cultural focused events. In addition you will be able to bring your passport to the featured restaurant the month of the event and receive something special. People with the most stamps on their Passports will from time to time be eligible for rewards and prizes.
No. As a Passport holder, you will be able to visit the restaurant for up to 30 days following the event and, when you show your Passport, you will be given something special such as a free appetizer or dessert or discount or… In addition, you can view the video highlights of the event(s) that you missed on our web page. So if you are not available on the day of an event OR if you don’t sign up quickly enough and we already have our maximum, you don’t miss out completely.
We encourage you to RSVP for events as soon as you can so you won’t be shot out if we reach the maximum. For very popular Adventures, there may be more than one event in the month.

No. Each attendee needs to have a Passport. Part of the fun of the Passport Adventure is to meet new people and not have to have a companion to enjoy these affairs.
No. The Passport is coded to be good only for the Passport holder of record – you! It cannot be shared or loaned to others.
We are planning on having at least 4 adventures to restaurants. We expect to have other adventures as well – perhaps a holiday event, Drinks of the World event, tours of ethnic places and so on.
We will be visiting restaurants that serve authentic food and represent their culture. We plan on featuring a variety of different cuisines and cultures – from all over the world.
Sure. We are always looking for new adventures and appreciate your suggestions.
This will vary but in general you will be served a special meal with your fellow Adventurers. You will be given a presentation from the Chef, Owner or knowledgeable other person who will explain the preparation of the food, the spices, how to order and so on. There may be cultural extras such as musical performances.
We expect that most of the restaurants we visit will have some type of alcoholic beverage available for purchase. Note that you are on your own in purchasing any alcoholic drinks.
No. Because we are keeping the expenses as low as possible, we can’t give refunds on Passports.
Be careful with your Passport! If you should lose your Passport please contact us for a replacement. There will be a charge for the reprinting.
