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

Monday, May 5th, 2014

(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!

Friday, October 12th, 2012

You see in my day, people’d be putting wheel covers to make simple steal wheels look like aluminum or magnesium alloys.

But these days VW is offering wheel covers on top of alloy wheels to make them look like old-school hub caps on steel wheels.

See? Here are your 17″ heritage alloy wheels on a 1013 VW Beetle:

Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Might Not be Absurd, But Devotion Vodka Is – Experience Both Tomorrow in SF

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Beth Spotswood is all over this Mike Sorrentino situation, as you might expect since he’s coming to The Jug Shop at 1590 Pacific on Saturday, October 30th at 5:30 PM or 6:00 PM to sign Vodka bottles or something.

Now, you probably already know all that you need to know about him, but here’s a little something about his favorite line of vodka, the one that’s paying him $400K.

Enjoy:

Do you feel that your favorite vodka has enough protein? Well, fret no longer, Devotion Vodka is here. Let’s read the press release together, shall we?

“Devotion Vodka: Get Devoted. THE WORLD’S FIRST PROTEIN INFUSED ULTRA PREMIUM VODKA HITS THE SHELVES IN SAN FRANCISCO, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY. De-vo-tion Pronunciation [di-voh-shuhn] -noun: Commitment Dedication and Determination.”

Oh, so that’s how you pronounce de-vo-tion. Thanks!

It’s new, it’s you?

“SAN FRANCISCO, — Created in San Francisco, the birthplace of the original martini,

Uh no, you’re thinking of Martinez, CA, way out there in Contra Costa County, and even then you’re still wrong.

“Devotion Spirits is set to unleash the groundbreaking power of the first-ever 80-proof, four column distilled vodka with the benefits of protein that is made in the United States.

What?

“Whether enjoyed on the rocks, mixed, stirred or shaken, Devotion Vodka provides for the smooth, delicious ultra-premium vodka taste discerning mixologists (professional or novice) are seeking. The patent pending proprietary solution found only in Devotion Vodka will transform the cocktail. While bar shelves are cluttered with vodkas from around the globe in every imaginable flavor,

Yep.

“Devotion is the first and only vodka which literally provides a drink with a real protein boost.

Protein? WTF?

“This revolutionary spirit will create a new beverage category, while also defining a new generation of vodka aficionados who devote themselves fully to everything they do in life. Created and developed by company President Drew Adelman, a nightlife, dining aficionado and fitness buff, Devotion Vodka was inspired by his search to combine his two favorite passions: fitness and nightlife.

Fitness and nightlife? Dude, you are a true renaissance man!

“My own personal mantra has always been… if you are going to be bad, you might as well be good,” notes Adelman. “With Devotion Vodka I can stay devoted to my regimen, while stepping out for a good time. I used to actually take my own protein out with me when I went for a night on the town.

Well, of course, you can’t step out without your protein. Natch.

“Then I realized there were millions of people like me who wanted to take care of their bodies and also have a good time. From that passion, Devotion Vodka was born.”

Boozing = taking care of your body. Check.

“In California, Devotion Vodka will be distributed by Young’s Market Company. International Spirits & Wines will be representing Devotion Vodka in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Devotion Vodka will be introduced in a 750 milliliter bottle at a suggested retail price of $29.99. The custom designed bottle made in France is not only distinctive, it is transformational;

Or maybe your bottle isn’t “transformational.” Just saying.

“the frosted glass bottle with the iconic logo and distinguishing red cap will further distinguish the brand and lifestyle that is unique to Devotion Vodka. “I have been in the nightlife industry for many years and I have seen some of the best ideas come through our clubs and restaurants,” notes Bob Jones, co-founder/vice president. “From Red Bull and Rockstar to Voss Water

Perrier from Scandinavia – now that’s pure genius.

“and Alize… all of those brands have a common thread – unique selling points that made them hugely successful. Devotion Vodka is a top-tier vodka product spirit enthusiasts will embrace. I believe Devotion Vodka has an unrivaled brand proposition everyone can understand and appreciate: protein.

I don’t understand/appreciate. Do not copy. Please resend.

“I have no doubt this will be the next big thing in the beverage industry.” “I’m exactly the type of person that Devotion Vodka was made for,” explains actor, athlete and fitness model Sebastian Seigel.

Or “Siegel,” sometimes he spells his name that way. Here’s a tip – whenever you get a funny word from Germany or wherever with the E’s and the I’s, just put the E’s as close together as possible, as in Diesel or Siebel.

“I have known Drew for many years and when he told me of his idea to develop protein-infused vodka, I told him I would be the first person buying a drink at the bar. It is ingenious. For athletes and anyone who takes care of their body and is looking for the best products for their lifestyle, Devotion Vodka has to be the choice.” In order to develop a recipe that would embody his vision, Adelman turned to the distinguished Frank Lin Distillery chemist, Dhir Singh and award-winning spirits chemist, Dr. Win Adler. Devotion Vodka’s proprietary solution

“Solution?” So, the vodka is the solvent and the protein is the solute? Sounds delicious!

“was selected by Singh for the following reasons: Solubility. Clarity. Taste. Feel. Devotion Vodka speaks to the masses.

The way Mussolini did? Neat.

“Its name Devotion shares many of the same attributes of the world’s greatest athletes and success stories: commitment, drive and success. From the stand-out design of the bottle to the unique marketing programs, social media campaigns and targeted outreach to the fitness and body builder communities, Devotion Vodka is both an ultra premium spirit and lifestyle choice. Fans and followers will be inspired by the Get Devoted mantrathat will surround all aspects of the brand. For more information, visit www.devotionvodka.com.

So, vodka + protein = Devotion.

O.K., but what about fat (or the taste of fat, anyway)? Well, in that case, you’re going to need Bakon, the bacon-flavored vodka.

San Francisco Embraces the New San Francisco Chronicle

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

How can you tell that San Francisco embraces the new look San Francisco Chronicle? Easily, just by seeing that the taggers and sticker artists of the Western Addition are already eyeing the new tannish vending racks much as other artists would look upon an blank canvas.

Seeing as how I haven’t purchased a newspaper (or pre-recorded CD, pre-recorded DVD, or any kind of Blu-Ray disc) so far this millennium, I don’t know any difference. But the dead-tree readers surely do, and they must appreciate the quite modest price increase of just 50 cents more, Sundays only.  

Click to expand:

Speaking of which, some have taken to scratching off the new $2.00 Sunday stickers. Bad form. That must lead to consternation.

Will the new digital press make much of a difference?

Stay tuned…
