Trick or treat! Give me something good to eat!
As in the past, many Kansas City area restaurants are offering discounts and freebies to entice you to bring the trick-or-treaters in before they go off in search of other treats.
Kansas City has many 2019 Halloween restaurant specials (and other bargains) so you can recoup all that money you spent on costumes and candy.
Many of these deals aren’t advertised until the last minute, so you’ll want to check back if you’re planning to eat out that night. Also, some of these deals are only good on Halloween; others are good before and after, so make sure you click the links and read the fine print.
Want us to highlight your event or give it a prime spot at the top of this list? Email me about sponsoring this post: firstname.lastname@example.org.
