Would you rather: one Beyoncé ticket or 170 bowls of queso?

Beyoncé tickets have been on sale for two days in certain venues for American Express cardholders and Beyoncé fan club members, causing heartbreak and scrambling to find funds wherever possible.

For non-Beyhivers, general ticket sales start Feb 16. In Arlington’s AT&T center, however, you can already buy tickets and snag floor seats for $1,450 a ticket.

While floor seats sound pretty good, there are also different VIP packages available that could put you on stage with Queen B herself. Ticketmaster helpfully breaks down the different available packages. In Arlington, the “BeyFirst Package” puts you front and center for $1,500 or more. The least pricey VIP option, the BeySwag Silver Package, costs at least $450. That one doesn’t let you share the stage with Bey, though.

If you do manage to snag a non-VIP floor ticket for $1,450 to see Bey live and semi-up close, it sounds almost reasonable. But $1,450 can also buy:

  • 555 P. Terry’s cheeseburgers
  • 240 Originator smoothies from Juiceland
  • 1,338 chocolate chip cookies – DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR – from Tiff’s Treats
  • 165 Magic Shroom burgers from Hopdoddy Burger Bar
  • 149 margherita pizzas from Homeslice
  • 397 Street Tacos from Taco Joint
  • 72.5 pounds of brisket from Franklin BBQ
  • 170 House Bloody Marys from Rio Rita
  • 170 bowls of queso from Kerbey Lane

Either way you decide, it’s probably not a good idea to sell any organs on the black market.
