Extra Swag, Discounts, No Lines for Advance Purchasers for This Weekend's Burger Cup (May 20-21)
Haven't bagged your tickets to this weekend's Burger Cup at Galaxy Soho (May 20-21, 11am-8pm) yet? Well, what are you waiting for? Here are four reasons why it's downright essential you grab your RMB 25 tickets in advance.
1. SKIP THE LINE
Do you like standing in queues for hours in the hot midday sun? Of course you don't because that would just mean wasting time when you could be eating burgers and drinking beer. If you've purchased your Burger Cup tickets in advance you'll get to skip the line and start the day with a strong a sense of superiority as you cruise through with priority entry. At the 2015 Pizza Cup, which was also held at Galaxy Soho, the wait to get in at peak times was nearly 90 minutes. Just FYI.
2. GUARANTEED ENTRY
Like any Beijing event, we've got to keep an eye on the crowd numbers so if you don't buy your ticket in advance you may find that all the tickets have sold out before you've even got to the front of the queue.
3. FREE STUFF
There's no such thing as something for nothing, am I right? Actually, I'm wrong because if you buy your Burger Cup ticket in advance you'll get a free gift that will help you fit in with this year's Wild West dress code. (Note: only available while stock lasts.)
4. GROUP BUY DISCOUNTS
Buy five tickets for the price of four when you buy in a group (that's RMB 100 instead of RMB 125). Group purchases or five tickets will also get you a free burger-themed picnic – neat!
Purchase your tickets via the links/QR codes below. The platform accepts payment via WeChat, Alipay, or local bank cards.
