Living in Kansas City is awesome, but there are some hidden secrets that make it even awesome-er. Here’s the insider info that you won’t find anywhere else.*
1. You can get cheaper parking at Arrowhead.
Sure, you can pay $40 at the gate, or you can pre-pay $30 for a single game pass online… before the Ticketmaster fees, of course.
2. There’s a faster route to the airport.
If you’re in a rush to get to Economy Parking or even to the airport itself, take the Mexico City Avenue exit. It’ll save you so much time.
3. You can get a free day of parking at the airport.
Speaking of Economy Parking, here’s a coupon for a free day of parking. It expires at the end of 2016, so make those travel plans soon. You’re welcome.
4. You can skip the line at Joe’s KC.
If you call ahead and order, you can walk past everyone in line and pick up your food. It will be just as good, and you won’t have to stand in line for 90 days.
5. Bar Louie’s happy hour is the happiest in KC.
Aside from its typical happy hour, Bar Louie has $1 or $5 burgers on Tuesday nights and discounted beers and Signature Martinis on Wednesday nights. Plus, you can get a free appetizer when you join their mobile mob. Text “mobile” to 52051. Please drink responsibly, etc. etc.
6. You can get a free meal at BD’s Mongolian Grill on your birthday.
You can receive a free meal (yeah, an entire meal) at either of the BD’s Mongolian Grill locations in KC on your birthday. Make sure you bring your ID to prove it’s your special day!
7. The best burger in KC is at a flea market.
You read that right. The best burger in town can be found at Westport Flea Market. We’re not just saying that, either. It’s held the title since 1987 from the likes of The Food Network, The Pitch, Zomato and many more. Plus, it’s only $10. Note: the food truck burger is not built to scale.
8. Papa John’s has the best deal in town.
When the Royals (or any team) hit a Grand Slam, you can receive 40% off any pizza at regular menu price the next day when you visit papajohns.com and enter the promo code PAPASLAM. Winner, winner, pizza dinner.
9. Treat yo self to VIP balcony passes at P&L.
Upgrading your seats to VIP balcony passes at Power & Light not only makes you feel like a baller, you can also get free drinks throughout Live! concerts. That’s basically a million dollars in savings. Basically.
10. You can find cheaper Worlds and Oceans of Fun tickets.
If you’re on the lookout for savings at Worlds of Fun or Oceans of Fun, there are a few ways to save on admission. You can buy tickets at Price Chopper or through AAA (if you’re a member). If you have a friend with a season pass, save some cash and tag along on “Bring A Friend Day.”
11. Royals and Chiefs merch might be interchangeable.
Drink ALL THE HOT CHOCOLATE.
*You can find most of these somewhere else. But hey, at least now they’re all in one place, right?
