We had those at work, and I thought it was about the most uncomfortable chair I had ever used after sitting in it for more than 45 minutes or so.

Also they're really nice. Pick a pressure and the machine will get it there, up or down. Just connect, wait, beep beep beep and move to the next one.

This one here, it's $99 in store: https://www.costco.com/bayside-furnishings-metrex-iv-mesh-office-chair.product.100522611.html

I had a HM Mirra chair with a bad seat pan so I bought this one. A little to narrow for my tastes so I gave it to the wife and she loves it. Pretty comfortable and the folding arms mean we can actually fit it under the desk.

I'm currently sitting in one of these chairs and have used it as my work and gaming chair for...3-4 years now? It's a really solid chair. My one and only complaint is that it squeaks like the dickens when I lean back, and no amount of spray lubricant will make its way into the part of the mechanism that squeaks so I'm going to have to take it apart to do so which I haven't yet resorted to since it's a pain in the rear end.

I stopped by costco today to get some avocados and went looking for the ramen that you guys post about. But I couldn't find any at all. Also sherpas still aren't out which seems weird. I'm in MN and next week forecast is below freezing.

ended up doing kimchi jigae and that red braised pork is next on my list.

but, uh, I made too much. I started with 1/3 of the costco pork belly (so like, 3.5 pounds) and froze the other 2/3 and ended up having to split it from my 7 qt dutch oven into a separate stockpot. I'll freeze a bunch but lol guess I'm gonna be having kimchi jigae for a while.

the pork belly is great in that!

Brought it home last night Iíll give a trip report this weekend. The manager was telling me theyíve been trying to get Weber for 25 years and after the pilot Weber was like gently caress yeah so now theyíll have them year round. I also bought my father in law the beer advent calendar so I hope it doesnít suck this year.

First time going back after reupping my membership: trip report

Got a shitload of jerky, those salted chocolate caramel things, looked for a fleece blanket but no dice. Not sure if they have been discussed before but I got a premade chicken tikka masala pack that was effing delicious. Like almost as good as restaurant quality and way better than any other premade I've had. Also got a pack of the butter chicken and I'm excited to try that too.

Not those Tasty Bite ones right? Those didn't have any meat in them. What do these look like and where did you find them because I could really use some decent Indian food since we don't have anywhere around here.

The best thing about Webers, is getting parts for it years and decades down the road. I got a Q portable unit back when they first came out in 2003, and it's still grilling up steaks, burgers and chicken to this day, I had to replace 3 parts in 17 years, new igniter, new gas element and a new regulator and that was it and it wasn't an issue even though my specific model was replaced years later.

My dad has a Weber from at least the 90s. We had it when I was a kid. A few years ago he repainted it and it looks and works excellently.

When I got my house I bought a Char-Broil though because those are half the cost. It works just fine, but it's no Weber.

At my parent's house they live in now they used to have a gas grill connected directly to the gas line which was just perfectly convenient. He almost never used it though. In fact got it removed when they got a new patio.

Same. Bought one in 2006 and used it up until a couple years ago when I swapped out for a 22" Weber charcoal for some reason that probably sounded good at the time. Everything I do with the Weber is amazing, but I miss the gas convenience of 3-minute hot dogs.

I have a question about Costco alcohol.

There was mention of Kirkland Boozy Seltzer. I'm a seltzer fan, I'll give it a try, says I.
I went to my Costco and I didn't see it. Then I thought about it.

I'm in Texas. We have a liquor store attached to the Costco for the hard stuff and the 'Co itself sells beer and wine. BUT, I don't recall ever seeing Kirkland brand alcoholic drinks here (I haven't really paid attention). I know there's something about this setup not being able to sell Kirkland labelled alcohol but I'm not really clear on it. Am I doomed to never sample the sweet sweet nectar of the church made seltzer?

That was way too many words to say: I'm in Texas, I don't see the boozy seltzer, are we allowed to have it.

In Texas the attached liquor stores don't have any Kirkland products because they are still state run.

The tastybites are vegetarian but still pretty good and worth it. My wife is half Indian and vegetarian and she approves. Our lazy day lunch plan is make a thing of basmati rice and toss the premade bag into it, just 15~ mins or whatever on the rice and 1min in the microwave for the bag. Quick easy cheap and tasty.

I feel like the Sukhi's chicken coconut curry is better than the chicken tikka or butter chicken, but all of them make me pretty happy. There is an Indian place a few blocks from me that is better, but with covid it is nice not having to deal with going into a restaurant.

That's what I thought, but does that stop the Costco from stocking the seltzer inside the warehouse store (not the liquor store)?

I throw in a couple drops of hot sauce to bring up the heat level on the tikka masala. I've been using The Last Dab carolina reaper flavor and it doesn't affect the flavor much but adds kick. I've got a bottle of Assam hot sauce I want to try next.

Counterpoint: my 31" kamado style Louisiana grill is doing great.

Seems just as good as big green egg or kamado joe and was like 1/2 the price of those on sale.

They sell other brands of hard seltzer in regular stores so I don't see why they couldn't. I've never seen it at my Costco, but I've also never really looked for it.

People don't like those? I can't imagine how they are legitimately amazing albeit a bit expensive and you get a very generous portion of chicken in each bag.

They were in a refrigerated section. In my store they were adjacent to/behind the fridge shelf with the cheese. Like they were in the same fridge shelf unit just on the opposite side/one aisle over if that makes sense.

The machine at my local store has been on every time I went. An elderly man was playing when I went last night. I'm so tempted to buy one, but I figure if I really want to play some of those games, I could just buy a Namco collection for a fraction of the price and it wouldn't take up so much room. But it's always so tempting.

Yeah but you gotta refrigerate it after opening or eat 2lbs all in one go.




I cut it in half and threw one side in a bag in the freezer.
