Scientists determined that trolleys were the most conducive vehicles for partying after early experiments with a Sherman tank and a catapult ended in disaster. Get on the trolley while staying off the wagon with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a night of unlimited trolley rides from Kansas City Strip (a $10 value). In addition to being whisked about town at whim, you'll also be privy to food and drink specials at dozens of participating bars and restaurants along the route. The party trolley operates every Friday and Saturday from 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
With stops at eight prime nightlife neighborhoods throughout the metro area, Kansas City Strip allows easy access to a city-wide night out. Once you've redeemed your Groupon online, you'll receive a code to deliver to the red-shirted KC Strip sentry stationed at each of the trolley's stops, who in turn will outfit you with an all-powerful, arm-hair-conscious wristband. Once banded, you'll be free to get on and off the trolley whenever you please, all while enjoying the kind of drink and food specials fit for a mattress king. Hop off in the Power and Light district and skip the line at Mosaic Lounge. If PBR Big Sky's cool cowboy clientele urbanely toss you through the saloon doors for somehow cheating at video poker, hightail it to Westport for live music at the Beaumont Club and $1.25 domestic draws at Buzzard Beach. Non-alcoholic alternatives include re-energizing with a bubble tea at Tea Drops, smoking hookahs for $5 off at Jerusalem Café, or immortalizing your eternal love for the latest Internet meme with 10% off tattoos at Freaks on Broadway. Finally, come down from the evening's festivities with an after party of $2 longnecks at Bobby Baker's in Waldo or a $5 nightcap at The Drop in Martini Corner.
Kansas City Strip's safe, frequent transportation and abundance of specials make it easy to celebrate special occasions such as bachelor parties, girls’ nights out, bar mitzvahs gone wild, and tragically ill-conceived interventions. Ready your human freightage of friends and loved ones for passage by trolley to downtown's most in-demand destinations with today's Groupon.
Specials are subject to change. The trolley only stops at Hamburger Mary's on First Fridays.
