This stuff is all the rage in Hawaii

And these days you can buy cases and cases in the 415.

And wouldn’t this gelatinous stuff be just perfect for a baby shower? I think so.

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.)

The Era of Two-Something-Dollars for a Gallon of Gasoline Has Returned to the Bay Area – $2.96 in South SF

Monday, November 17th, 2014

As seen by photographer James Corrigan at a South San Francisco Costco yesterday, November 16th, 2014:

Granted, this is a membership-only warehouse so I guess you’d have to factor in the $55 annual membership, but prices are dropping like a stone lately – it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be able to purchase sub $3 gas in San Francisco proper…

These $80 Brooks Running Shoes from Costco Cost More to Operate Than Your Car? Yep

Friday, September 19th, 2014

You do the math kids, but that’s something like 30 cents per mile, you know, with sales tax ‘n stuff:

But they feel like they’re already broken in from the get-go, so that’s gotta be worth something…

August in Frisco: Costco #144 Knows Its Customer Base – It’s Selling Thousands of Down Jackets Right at the Front Door

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

This is what you see as you walk in the front door of America’s First Urban Costco – hundreds and hundreds of new-school down jackets.

‘Cause it’s August:

Oh, Costco is Selling Apple Stuff Again: iPods and iPads with a Modest Discount of $15 Or So

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

One supposes the great Apple Costco Spat of Aught-Ten is over, seeing as you can walk right in to Costco #144 and score an iPod Touch or Nano or, soon enough, an iPad Air or Mini or whatnot.

Apparently Canadian Costcos are getting iPhones now but supplies will be spotty in the U.S. depending on region and carrier.

(The last time I bought an iPod at a Costco it was co-branded with HP, believe it or not.)

Or if you really want to save money, there’s always the Apple Refurbished Store.

Anyway, enjoy.

Leaning Tower of Spam, Costco #144

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.
