My car battery died when I stopped at Costco for that sweet sweet $1.99 gas. One of the guys from the tire center very nicely came out and jumped my car. Probably should have bought a new battery there, but I didn't have tools with me so I would have needed another jump to get home.

That's my story. I feel it would encapsulate the Costco experience if I had gotten a juicy dog.

I'm hosting a backyard BBQ soon and going to tithe at Costco. What are everyone's​ favorites to feed lots of people? Besides the dogs of course. I need some sides or extras.

Iirc Costco's potato salad is pretty good. They also do veggie trays.

Bought like $20 in ribs and pressure cooked them in a mango habenero marinade I made and they turned out awesome. Got just about every sample they had yesterday too.

Resisted the urge to buy some of that golden island kbbq pork jerky because I end up eating the whole thing in like 1-2 days.

Sounds great, post that marinade please

I don't eat hot dogs.

But damned if I'm not craving a big juicy 1/4+ all beef hot dog and 20 oz. drink with free refill for $1.50

I typically don't like hot dogs either, but the Costco ones taste different from any other one I've had. Give it a shot, you might like it. Worst case you're only out $1.50 (praise be)

If you're the kind of person that prefers crispy cookies I can see not liking the Costco ones. Otherwise, they are definitely above average store cookies.

The Kirkland craft beer case in northern VA is decent enough that if I'm looking for beer but don't want to spend a lot I'll get it. 19.99 for 24 beers is my idea of a deal and prevents me from being peeved if someone snags some without asking.

Current pack here is an APA, IPA, porter, and brown ale. The IPA is not super hoppy and definitely easy to drink while still feeling like it's got a recognizable flavor.

Picked up 4 new tires from the 'Co today. No line this morning and only took about an hour. Didn't realize it comes with nitrogen fills (and, afaik, free refills of nitrogen).

Trastion posted:

If you do the Nitrogen filled thing you are only ever supposed to top off with Nitrogen which means you can only do it at certain places. Using regular air once ruins the whole Nitrogen thing as it adds water vapor back into the sealed environment.

That is not to say you shouldn't do it just don't pay extra for it unless you can be sure you will only ever top it off with more Nitrogen.

I was concerned about this but the guy said it would be fine if I need to top with air and that I just should tell them next time I came in so they could fully replace with nitrogen.

GORDON posted:

Why does it have so many carbs? I compared the other pizzas on the shelf, and the cauliflower crust still had something like 80% of the carbs of the regular crust pizzas.

Iirc they use tapioca starch and rice flour to bind the cauliflower so the crust is just one big carb disc. It's healthier than a regular pizza but not, like, really healthy or anything.

E: I completely agree with the above about the organic stuff. I've been sad to see things like my favorite Kirkland peanut butter get replaced with an organic version that was slightly smaller and slightly more expensive. The buyers definitely target the wealthy soccer mom demographic.

Yeah, I was disappointed when they phased out the regular Kirkland salsa in favor of the organic version. For some awful reason the organic one has added sugar while the regular stuff did not. It's just pricier and worse now than when it was nonorganic.

I've seen some things at the food court today... Dude walks up to the soda machine with a plastic bag that I think is actually for ice, but it's empty. He proceeds to fill up the bag with ice from the machine, took like 5 minutes. Then he offered me and my kids his chicken Caesar salad. I declined but he proceeds to dump just the chicken in the trash. So he was just offering the chicken, I guess!

Saw a woman do the same bagging up ice thing at my Co. Is this a new trend?

Wife bought some tires a few days ago. New sale just dropped, adding 60 bux off the installation (which makes installation free) on top of the 70 bux off bridgestone tires.

Obviously they discounted the price when we went in to actually get the tires, because Costco is Good.

These were being offered in my local Costco in northern Virginia. They come 4 to a tin and are extremely dense. Tasty if you like that kind of thing, and like 700 calories to boot.
