What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon Kansas City! For our inaugural deal, $7 gets you $15 worth of grub and guzzle at Woodyard Bar-B-Que, an unassuming brick shack that serves melt-in-your-mouth meaty meals.
You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Kansas City: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in one year). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Bypass the brisk pit and make your way to the small ordering counter. At Woodyard Bar-B-Que, you’ll find all the backyard summertime staples such as baby backs, tender fall-off-the-bone meaty morsels glossed with a sweetly smoked sauce ($8 for a 1/2 slab, $15.50 for a whole). Sandwiches (brisket, turkey, ham, burnt ends) can be upgraded with any two sides for $6.75. Woodyard also offers daily specials such as the pecan-smoked salmon bunned with dill, cream cheese, onion, lettuce, and a tomato, or Frank’s Rueben featured the first Friday of every month.
Barbecue is a nostalgic, feel-good meal that will remind you of summers spent avoiding roving motorcycle gangs with friends. While gnawing on a juicy spare rib, your brain will be bombarded with blissful backyard memories. Instead of relying on friends with grills or summertime holidays, this deal allows you to indulge in fiery favorites whenever you chose.
Get this Groupon to quash comfort food cravings, to acceptably eat with your fingers, or to revisit the barbecue-sauce-stained days of your youth.
- Seriously. Yes, I've been to all the places you're going to counter me with. But it is true, it may have been the finest chicken I've ever had in my life. – tsheets, Urbanspoon
- Whether you're eating in the itty-bitty dining room or on the pretty, shady brick patio, you'll get some superb smoked meats and chicken. – The Pitch
- No really, it was like going to a friends [sic] summer BBQ, or more like the summer BBQ of someone who you don't really know that well. There was a [sic] even a set of horseshoes sitting on top of the trash can--I was tempted to set up shop there all afternoon. – Kansas City Lunch Spots
