Rejoice, brothers and sisters, for I went to Costco on Saturday and witnessed a miracle:



A fire hydrant went rogue in the parking lot, and all in attendance were baptized in the name of Costco and the Los Angeles fire department.

Also I tried the food court kiosks for the first time. Ordered a whole pizza and didn't even have to wait, they just handed me an already-made one from the stack that they cut up for slices. Pretty dope.

Lol is that the Los Feliz Costco?

Also I always get my workout shorts from Costco. Every year they have really nice board shorts for like 10-12 bucks and they are perfect for working out in.

Yeah gotta catch them early summer.

Check online though Costco.com rules when you canít find your size in store.

they sell 'em in the refrigerated section!!!

Ok look man I appreciate the advice but unless I can pay some dude 1.50 to make me one and a drink itís a no sale.

I really just miss my gluttonous monthly polish dog and slice of pizza.

Also Iím not a huge fan of what they have done with the pizza crust. Itís way too thick now.

Honestly a few years ago the Costco pizza was great but they hosed with the crust and the sauce and now its really kinda poo poo.

I'm really not a fan of the thicker crust they use and I swear the sauce tastes like poo poo now too.

Costco is two miles from my house, but my wife will pay more to order stuff from the web site just so she doesn't have to deal with all the morons blocking everything with their carts.

Also, the Kirkland organic Greek yogurt is amazing. I bought it one time when they didn't have the 0% Fage and I prefer it.

Every time Iíve used Costco.com the price was the same as it was in store. Is this not true for everything?

The website has always been substantially more expensive whenever I've compared to store prices. :confused:

Hmm maybe I never really noticed it but when I saw some clothes in store they didn't have my size in they would typically be the same price. Probably haven't paid enough attention to it though honestly.

I would say somewhere in the middle? These arnt thick wool flannels and not light fleece flannels. A good middle ground.Thick enough to keep you warm on a breezy day and thin enough to be worn with layers, maybe a jacket if it's really cold. Best thing to do is pick one up, try it on and see how ya like it. It's Costco, so return that poo poo if it's not the right fit for you.

My personal opinion is that these are the best budget flannels out there and that's saying something. I owned so many god drat flannels over the years.

*kicks over my mountain of PBRs and avocado toast*

E: had to google it real quick. 100% cotton baaaaaabyyyyyyyyy

Yeah I think I am going to have to brave the hawthorn Costco tonight or tomorrow. It doesnít get cold enough in LA so I could see this working as a jacket.

Tacos don't have to have cheese. Cheese on a taco is more of Tex-Mex thing, anyway.


I love those big orange barrels of Utz Halloween pretzels, the Bats and Jacks. I give out real candy, too, but the pretzels are ALWAYS popular. One year I gave kids a choice of two items out of Snickers, Reese's Cup, Kit Kat or the Utz, and at least 75% of the kids took a bag of pretzels.

Yeah you beat me to it. Street tacos don't have drat cheese on them wtf.

When the DOTA tournament was going on across the street, I glimpsed a gamer chowing down on a sandwich composed of two slices of pizza wrapped around two hot-dogs.

I am not sure how I feel about this but now Iím tempted to try it...

Also headed to Costco at 3pm on a Monday. Google claims itís not busy but we will see how true that is.

Edit wasnít empty but the lines were super short and I got some cheap flannels.

I've got a very high number of the costco flannels. I think I buy a few of theme very year, they're great.

I actually ended up buying two other brands and they seem great as well.

Also my Costco still had a boat load of the nicer board shorts left lol.

Do the flannel shirts run smaller, larger, athletic or normal fit, etc? Like, my button up shirts from Old Navy are large size & regular fit, would a large flannel shirt fit my pre-corpse the same ?

Yeah it should.

I think they have tall sizes too but Iím not sure if itís that brand or not.

As far as I can tell a large is a regular large no weirdness.

Costco flooring locally are booked out for weeks. I put in my info in the costco website, and I got a call a day later from some local flooring company contracted out to Costco. "When would you like us to come out with the samples?" "Tuesday would be great," "Oh haha we are booked out for three weeks."

Then why are you asking me when I'm free? Tell me when you're free. Earliest date please!

So, October 30th I'm having their person come out with the flooring samples, take the measurements, and get the total written right there. Which is great, except the month's 15% cashback bonus ends on the 28th. Wonder if they'll still honor it.

You should call them and ask. 15% is pretty big

I'm thinking about signing up for the Costco credit card but Nerdwallet reviews say the card has terrible customer service, takes forever to clear payments, and (most bizarre) freezes your account if you make more than one payment a month.

Isnít it just a citi card? Like that doesnít make sense.

Is the 55" TCL Roku 4k TV good? Its going on sale for like 270, and I kind of want to upgrade my 42" 1080p

270 is a pretty drat good price but if you find the model that would help.

Honestly though itís under $300 and as long as it doesnít self immolate when you plug it in it will probably be a pretty good step up from what you have.

Once you start getting into like sub 300 range a lot of the TVs start to blend together unless you are getting a last year higher end model at a deep discount.
