I just put money in the Magic Fingers!

I also went to Costco today for steaks. It was busier at 1pm then it is on most Saturdays. $120 in steak later, I emerge victorious.

was this on the weekend? sounds about right in my experience

now try to imagine california costco's where it can be 2x that busy.

unless its one of the more rare suburb cities that have like 2 costcos within 10 miles of each other

That's Henderson Costco everyday. And the others arn't much better.

Got all the essentials for a kickin rad BBQ on Saturday, $170 later. As part of this, I randomly grabbed one of those giant rear end bottles of Kirkland ready-to-go margaritas. I have a feeling it'll be disgusting but like everything at Costco, I have never been steered wrong before. Guess we'll find out, friends.

Not everybody gets as excited about pizza and hot dogs as I do, chief executive Craig Jelinek told company shareholders in January, noting that the food court menu is a frequent topic of comments dropped in store suggestion boxes.

(about the Al Pastor salad)
Jelinek is perhaps not the best pitch-man for that particular item.

“This new plant-based protein salad, I know that excites you,” he said at the shareholder meeting. “But it is healthy. And, uh, actually, it tastes pretty good, if you like those kind of things. I tried it once.”

He is all about those dogs

So since joining Costco I've become a vegetarian so I'm glad the al pastor salad is very, very good, and I obviously still love the cheese pizza.

I don't eat the dogs anymore though.

Their eyes locked and suddenly there was the sound of breaking glass.


I am struggling with the faith today. Went yesterday and they were out of/no longer carry several long-standing favorites, the optical area basically threw up their hands at my unusable glasses (way distorted vision and seeing text double at close range. The optician says the prescription is fine and to take it up with my optician), and despite checking out on it the app never actually sent the 100 photos I wanted printed. Between that and the sweaty hoardes that were somehow there at 2:00 on a Thursday, I'm wondering if it's all worth it.

And like Eat Faster, I've become mostly veg so communion is useless to me.

Save my soul, goons.

Why does the turkey pesto sandwich not get any love? Its great if you wanna switch it up.

After years of eating the food court food multiple times a week, all that stuff destroys my digestive system, even the chicken salad. Maybe not the hot dog so much, but tasting it with every burp for 3 days after eating it is almost worse. But still, sometimes I'll get a pepperoni slice knowing that I'll be on the toilet 45 minutes later. Sometimes it's worth it, sometimes it isn't.

Also, my Costco is currently remodeling, and it's been a huge clusterfuck with everything moving around. Starting next week, the bakery will be closed for 5 weeks while the contractors work on that area. Some of the bakery employees will be going to the Costco a few miles down the road to make some stuff and bring it back to my store to sell. So there will be stuff like muffins, cookies, and croissants, no bread though.

It's all a huge pain in the rear end, but I guess it'll all be worth it when it's done, since my Costco will be going from the smallest in the state to the largest.

Costco should sponsor the 4th Hot Dog eating contest just so I can see how Joey Chestnut fares with those dogs

Dude if eating some lettuce, tomatoes, and chicken breast gives you that much of a problem then you should talk to your doctor.

I definitely like the turkey sandwich. It's just hard to compare anything to the incredible deal that is the hot dog. It hurts that there is a great italian sandwich place that I usually go to for my 'wich cravings too.
