Let's get drunk and kiss each other all night.

My fav thing to have with gin is cranberry ginger ale, I stockpile it during the holiday season. Has just the right amount of tartness and pairs really nicely!

I wish Costco here had more of a soda selection it is pretty much just coke and multi packs with cursed cream soda in it, the worst soda.

I've never found Costco soda prices to be very good unless you're always buying it at the regular price in other stores. At my local grocery store (Safeway) Coke/Pepsi products have big sales all the time and it brings the price per can much lower than Costco, so I just wait and then buy a few packs.

And yeah, the selection sucks. It's the same story with price for cases of beer at Costco too, but at least in the PNW they have a lot of good craft selections and the prices are decent, just not the best.

Yeah I usually just get stuff at my supermarket too, only on sale though. I do sometimes get the flats of coke just because Iím there.

Lately costco has bern my go to for fruit, because my kids go through it so drat fast. Their grapes are usually pretty amazing tbh, much better than the supermarket I go to.

Can confirm it's the real deal. Drinking it straight is like drinking floor cleaner. I don't think there are any added sugars or flavors. If you're not going in expecting Reed's or something, you'll get exactly what you want: ginger + bubbles.

Is American Gin a brand? Because if you are speaking generally about gin made in the states then you are very wrong and there are some fantastic American gins.

America has one brand of gin. From the "American Gin" company. Probably not hundreds or even thousands that totally all would suck.

I'm not a fan of gin though. I always have vodka tonics with a lime that I squeeze into it and drop it in.

I worked at a bottling plant and tonic does not want to stay in the bottle. It was the most pain in the rear end thing to bottle.

Mt Dew, like 900 bottles a minute

Diet Pepsi, a giant pain in the rear end to keep in the bottle: 350

Tonic water? If you see 150 it's a loving miracle. 100 wasn't unheard of.


If you've ever wonder why the hell tonic water and club soda are so expensive, they cost like 8 times as much labor dollars to fill a bottle as Mt Dew. It's literally cheaper to pump tap water into bottles. (**Literally** literally, even though water bottles get treated with ozone, UV and pumped with liquid nitrogen.)

Club soda is the single hardest thing to bottle yet it has the simplest ingredient list. When you saw that on the schedule you'd know the you were about to work a 16 hour shift. Every time, without fail.

Man I can't even find the 24-pack I was talking about online, it was actually 3 8-packs wrapped as one unit. I think it was like 15 dollars though, so having a perfect tasting strong G&T for like a dollar is fine by me!

Anyone have hot insider info on whether the Calphalon quartz toaster oven is going on sale soon? My local 'co is getting rid of the $200 Cuisinart unit and the Calphalon is on display, but there are no units in the warehouse yet. The price tag showed $180, which is how much it is online.

Mad they're not 100% wool. Bloomingdale's sells them, but they're like 25 bucks a pair on sale. BS, but on the occasions I wear dress shoes they are so nice.

I love bourbon and think most Jack Daniels, Jim beam, and similar common whiskeys taste like gasoline. Good stuff is worth the price and a lot smoother (don't breathe out through your nose though, that can still burn)

No shame if it's not your jam, I just love sharing actually good liquor with people

If your 'Stco has Suntory in stock, I highly, HIGHLY recommend you buy some. It's excellent Japanese Whisky and at a great price, ten bucks less than at any other store.
