You Can Now Score Free Parking at the Flats East Bank

In an act of generosity to bocce players, bar hoppers and Jimmy Buffet lovers everywhere, the Flats East Bank has just announced a new free parking offer.

Running now through April 1, customers can present their parking tickets at participating venues and their parking fee will be waived.

Two caveats to keep in mind: the offer is only valid after 3 p.m. and only if you spend more than $50 at eight specific venues. So be ready to shell out at Backyard Bocce, Beerhead, Coastal Taco, Dante's Inferno, Lago, Margaritaville, Punch Bowl Social or Thirsty Dog.
But don't expect a parking free-for-all, the offer only extends to Flats East Bank parking locations, including lots near Punch Bowl Social and Margaritaville, as well as valet at Aloft Hotel and Alley Cat. Sorry, garage and overnight parking does not apply.
