Budget Safari 

The city's budget woes resulted in this year's $600,000 cut for the Kansas City Zoo (63rd Street and Swope Parkway, 816-871-5700). Rather than taking the easy path of large-mammal layoffs, the zoo ultimately passed the financial hit along to you, the zoological consumer, in the form of an admission hike. Getting in now costs $10.50 for adults, $7 for children and $9.50 for seniors. Fortunately, that keeps the capybaras and elephants out of the Missouri WIC program. But were you aware that every Tuesday, ticket prices drop to $8 for adults, $6 for kids and $7 for seniors? This implies, of course, that the crowds are likely to be thinner early in the week, so you can enjoy important one-on-one interactions with seals. Zoo hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
