The tri-pronged value of the Triceratops tickets guarantees daytime admission—rain or shine or airborne toxic event—to the DinoQuest exhibit in the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron, a half-acre geodesic dome filled with pools and waterfalls, along with tropical rainforest florae and faunae. You'll also enjoy admission to the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden, as well as the coordinated Jurassic Bugs exhibit at the Butterfly House. The Climatron and Children's Garden must be visited on the same day; when you redeem your Groupon at the Botanical Garden and Children’s Garden, you will receive a pass to the Butterfly House, which may be redeemed on a separate date from the first two exhibits.

A mural of a cowgirl riding a rocket decorates the brick fa?ade of Atomic Cowboy, a nod to the bar and restaurant's out-there origin story, which involves a missive from aliens and the implicit approval of both King Arthur and Jerry Garcia. Inside, the rustic bar and eclectic decor fill the dining room with a fun and unique atmosphere as guests tuck into inventive Mexican fusion such as the cheeseburger burrito. Offerings at the bar include local craft beers on tap, such as Schlafly, and seasonal cocktails. Throughout the week, Atomic Cowboy bustles with special events such as open-mic nights on Mondays, DJs who only spin vinyl on Wednesdays, salsa dancing on Sundays, and other musical performances.
