Go Metro Weekends, Carmageddon II style


Here we go, folks. Carmageddon II is hours away, and if you’re adamant about not staying home all weekend, sipping cold drinks by the pool, go Metro to check out these fine Destination Discounts locations that are offering extra special deals just for this weekend.

Buca di Beppo at Universal City Walk is offering 20% off meals if you show the Metro-exclusive coupon. Enjoy great Italian food and do some shopping while you’re in the area. (Red Line or Metro Rapid 750 to Universal City Station, transfer to free shuttle)

In Hollywood, IRIS from Cirque du Soleil is offering certain tickets for just $40.50 if you reference code METROB at the box office. After the show, pop by Madame Tussauds and get 40.5% off admission if you mention “Carmageddon” at the box office. Schmooze with the crème de la crème of wax celebrities. (Red Line to Hollywood/Highland Station, Metro Bus 217 to Hollywood/Highland)

The downtown LA location of Qdoba Mexican Grill will give you 15% off your bill this weekend if you show your TAP card. Have a burrito or two…or three! (Red, Purple, Blue or Expo Line to 7th/Metro)

Present your TAP card at the box office and save 50% off adult admission at the Natural History Museum. Visit the recently opened Spider Pavilion if you feel like getting touchy feely with some creepy crawlies. Adult tickets are $3 and the discount does not apply at the Pavilion. (Expo Line to Expo Park/USC, Metro Bus 81 to Figueroa/State)

If none of the Carmageddon discounts strike your fancy, there are plenty of other ongoing discounts you can take advantage of by going Metro, like the LA Zoo (Metro Bus 96 to Zoo/Western Heritage).

  1. 750 does not run on weekends. You can take the 150 instead. (the Buca di Beppo one incorrectly suggests taking the 750).
