    Whoa. Just got an e-mail informing me that the Kirkland Temple (R) now does same day delivery of groceries to our neighborhood. Game changer.

    Fuck you Costco. Seriously, fuck you.

    I apologize for the language, but they deserve this right now.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I remember when Costco just had a cart with polish dogs and a vending machine outside the entrance. I would go with my dad to Costco as a kid so that I could get the $1.50 polish dog and drink. The food court exists because of the polish dog. They should just blow the whole fucking food court up if they aren't going to sell the polish dog anymore.

    Also, meatless Al Pastor Salad. What the fuck Costco, what the ever loving fuck. Another reason why the food court needs to die a slow and painful death. It is an abomination.

    I'll join the crusade against whomever is at fault. I'd join forces with DHO to fight against this crime against humanity.

    Also, thank you for indulging the language Dude. I hope that these f-words do not go towards my unknown lifetime allotment.

    I always get regular hot dogs (and a drink) rather than polish dogs when I have lunch there, so this change doesn't really affect me.

    My daughter and her husband are big Costco fans. They've been bugging us for years to get a membership. Finally, last Christmas they gave us a membership as a gift. I don't normally buy enough stuff there to justify a membership, but recently I purchased ten 5-Shelf Storage Racks to hold all of my wife's "treasures" in the back of my garage, and probably saved about $15 each over the local hardware stores. That right there was worth more than the membership. But I doubt that I'll renew the membership for another year. They just don't have much that I want and the sizes of most things are way too large for two people.

    Amen.

    I was in a Costco last week and they said something about not having polish dogs anymore. After I left, I thought maybe they meant they didn't have any more that day. I mean, how could they discontinue polish dogs? Plus, they advertised the new acai berry thing supplanting the chocolate yogurt for a week or two. Surely they would have concurrently warned of the upcoming abolition of the polish dog?

    But then, a few days later in a different Costco, they had covered up the "Polish Dog" part of the sign and I knew things would never be the same.

    F-bomb away, funkster.

    Give me names funkster, these Costco executives live in my community... I will search them out and shame them into oblivion. They will never be able to enjoy a craft beer in peace again!

    I've never had a polish dog or Acai bowl at Costco. True story.

    But did you ever indulge in the hand-dipped ice cream bar? Be honest.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The greatest thing at Costco right now is the bulgoki meat in the meat/deli department. They take a chuck roast or something and thin slice it and pre-marinate it with bulgoki sauce and sliced onions. Cook that stuff up in a hot wok and serve up in a bowl with lettuce, cucumbers, kimchi, red pepper paste. Or make Korean street tacos. It is awesome.

    I will be getting the names shortly. Those bastards don't deserve to enjoy a craft beer in peace again. No whiskey should cross their lips without constant harassment until they bring back the polish dog.

    I loved the freshly dipped chocolate/almond ice cream bars. The thing to do was to ask them to only have almonds on one side, which created the perfect almond/chocolate/ice cream ratio. They were delicious and a tragedy to lose.

    However, the polish dog with drink for $1.50 is the Costco Food Court. It would be like the LDS church deciding, meh we are going to ditch the whole worshiping Jesus thing and replace Him with a fucking meatless Al Pastor salad and an Acai bowl.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Why have I not been made aware of this until now? I know what dinner might be for me tonight. Or maybe I'll pick up the bulgoki for tomorrow and get a meatless Al Pastor salad and Acai bowl for dessert. That is what I really want for dinner tonight.

    Also, Costco now carries in the frozen section beef bulgobi mandu that are delicious. Just pan fry them in some oil.

    Nope, but I'm not sure if my Costco has a dipped ice-cream bar. Is mine an outlier?

    Know what's really bad? My SIL just started working there, and she likes it. I don't know if I can stay true to myself and berate her constantly for working at the temple of capitalism, or just let sleeping dogs lie to maintain healthy family relationships. I'm so conflicted!

    We have some of those bulgoki mandu in the freezer. Have not tried them yet.

    Last Sunday we did Korean tacos with the bulgoki meat. We made a bowl of pickled shredded cucumbers and carrots. Take a warm tortilla, add some meat, a spoonful of the cucumber/carrot stuff, and drizzle some sriracha mayo on top. Omg. Amazing.
