An Unlocked Bike Parked in the Costco #144 Parking Lot is Probably Safer Than a Locked Bike Parked in the Rest of SoMA

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Like this unlocked bike, for instance.

It didn’t get stolen from the trusting owner for at least an hour

(Of course, this is the very same parking lot where that lady got carjacked and stuffed into the trunk of her large Infiniti sedan only to be released unharmed in the East Bay.)

OMG, 49ers Quarterback COLIN KAEPERNICK to Appear at Our Local Costco #144 on Wed, May 14th!

(Well, here’s the latest on the situation over in Florida that the MusclePharm people were so worried about.)

Now it’s on with the show, the road show, see?

And let’s see what the Yelpers have to say about this particular Costco sto:

“I love Costco! Here’s why..

1.) Best return policy- no questions asked!

2.) Lowest price without compromising the quality.

3.) Health score of 100/100! Beat that!

4.) Best hotdog you can get for only $1.50! That’s including soda.

5.) Costco’s travel deals are the best! Nobody can beat it. 

6.) Caucasian guy at the cashier who always wears Hawaiian shirt and speaks like 10 different languages. 

7.) Convenient – location, parking etc”

And oh, if I can read the fine print, you can too, but anyway, just saying this whole deal is members only. So if you’re not among the first 300 Costco members in line, you won’t be getting anywhere near CK. (One assumes the MP people* want you to queue up for hours and hours, you know, to create a frisson non?) Fair warning.

*6’1″ and 230 pounds – why do those stats seem familiar? Put me in, coach!

“Seattle vs. San Francisco” – NFC Championship-Themed Chocolate Cake at Costco #144 is Surprisingly Noncommittal

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

It’s almost as if Costco were based in the Seattle area…

I was looking for a novelty cake with flava, perhaps a peeing Calvin, you know, something to really give the business to Seattle

Alas.

The world’s first urban Costco gets some unusual items sometimes, huh?

But it only holds 48 guns? Is that enough?

I’ll hold out for the 64-gun model, you know, to keep my “adventure” safe.

For Shame: Costco Has to Mark Down These Lovely UC Berkeley Paper Plate / Napkin Sets to Just $2.97

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Costco #144 (America’s First Urban Costco) in SoMA chose to sell some Cal-branded  stuff but that turned out to be a mistake.

These lovely paper plate / paper napkin sets originally sold for over $10, at first. But not many people wanted them so  managers were forced to mark these things down to just $2.97, just to get them out of there.

For shame, Cal Alum, for shame. Have you no Spirit?

I’ll bet the bright red Stanfurd sets stocked at more southerly Costcos sold out at full price.

A: “Hey babe, you used to be a Lecturer at Cal, right? Don’t you want one of these sets, you know, for a party or something?”

B: “Meh”

Attention News-Gatherers: Now You Can Buy a News-Gathering Drone for $290 at Costco #144 – Control with Cell Phone

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

It’s kind of  new, it’s totally for you. It’s the Parrot Quadricopter AR Drone 2.0.

I told you all about this contraption before, but at the time it was only available online. These days, you can head on down to the SoMA Costco (America’s First Urban Costco) and get one for less than $300.

Then, you train your new pet to listen to simple commands from your cell phone (yes, there’s an app for that) and then you’re on your way to a Pulitzer:
