I got these frozen korean bbq beef things and tried it last night and it was awesome. There were hardly any vegetables in it though so, naturally, Normandy blend to the rescue.

Costco rotates their stock pretty regularly. Many a time have I been upset that they stopped carrying something only to see it again several months later. They probably also want to encourage people not to wait by making availability unpredictable.

Also, if you send them requests along with other people, they do in fact listen to customer requests

Just ate a Kirkland Signature nut bar with cocoa drizzle and sea salt, pretty sure I don't need to eat again for three days. Costco provides.

Can you not argue self-employment as owning your own business?

Rainier is top-notch local swill from the holy land, great for simmering your Kirkland Signature brand brats and also for swilling while eating said brats (assuming that your 48 pack of Kirkland Signature brand light beer is empty).

Peace be upon Costco.

I drank a lot of it when I lived in Kirkland. Now that I'm back in Wisconsin, the unholy land, I just drink Miller Lite or Milwaukee's Best (The Beast). poo poo's cheaper than soda.

I've never bought seaweed snacks at the Asian market, but it's worth noting that the Costco packages are chock full of seaweed. Literally 400-500% more sheets than other white person sources. I don't know how that stacks up to the asian markets but it's worth considering.

Not only do you get 2-3x the amount vs the Asian grocery store, the Costco seaweed sheets are bigger too. Not sure the proportion, but I'd say 1.5-2x bigger.

Hello Costco friend.

I could have sworn I picked some up there just a couple weeks back. I didn't even think to look the other night. Main focus tonight was flank steak and brews/meats for the weekend ahead. In lieu of the Modelo summer fun pack this year I went with the Blue Point sampler.

I haven't hit the food court my last few trips. It always seems so busy on weekday nights for whatever reason. They crank mad pizzas out of that kitchen though. Doesn't give me much hope for the quality of pizza on the west side.

There is a term for it: Treasure Hunt. They move stuff around so you have to find it, and maybe see something else you want. Store stock is also dictated by purchasing costs. If the product price goes up, then they will drop it until the price goes back down. Ask Coke about that one.

yeah I dunno about this one, my gf who has the costco membership wanted some of those dried seaweed packs they usually have, but they weren't in the snack section this time around, we asked 2 employees where they were and neither could give an answer so we just didn't get anything aside the 2pack of milk I wanted. We prolly woulda shopped more if they didn't randomly hide the reason she was there.

Ahhh the orange waistband shorts (with belt). Oooooh yeah 3% Spandex!
If you're a Costco cargo shorts T-shirt wearing goon you should try on their "athletic" shirts. I can't read the tag but they're synthetic with a high percent of spandex. Anti-stink + stretchy Spandex. Comfort with anti-goonstink technology. Highly recommended.

Once it gets cold again in the fall Costco sells a "SmartWool" knockoff sock. Very, very Pro. Purchase them and enjoy.

I am now a convert! Today was me and the wife's 10th anniversary, so we planned out a big day in knoxville to go do date wise. Last thing was going to get dinner. Long story short, she said "I don't see any need in us spending a ton of money to eat out, what can we get that is cheap and good?" Thanks to goon suggestion, we ended up at costco with a slice of pizza for her, and my first dog and drink. Needless to say, we left with a pack of the dogs and a pizza to do at home. PBUC
