i think all i'd really buy is food and alcohol and gas? do they have good cruises?
Costco closes at 8:30pm on weekdays. Costco Travel is very good if they offer a vacation you are interested in.

BTW, you can join Costco, buy stuff for 11 months and 29 days and then cancel the membership and get the full $60 back. It's zero risk. Costco


Over the year you can get $60 back in samples alone!

Also, the Costco credit card is worth the $60 fee just by itself.

Costco in Canada doesn't have a bad rep (imo) because they are one of the few places that pay a decent wage.... For unskilled/semi-skilled people they are a pretty good employer..

I mean that says nothing about their products and where they get them and any issues around that, but as far as wages they are good..

Norwegian just had a neat cruise with on-ship table and bed surfing, a revolving buffet, chandelier swinging contests, and free helicopter rides..

I think it was a one time thing tho....

about 65% of the food servers at the casino are incompetent. i'm generally pretty easy going with food servers since i used to be one. but i lost my temper a little tonight. i'm on a losing streak so that doesn't help. but my waitress got my order all wrong and then accidentally stuck her thumb in my soup. and when she returned my players card there was food all over it. *sigh*

later in the night i asked a guy to bring me two iced green teas, easy ice and no straw. they came completely filled with ice, and two straws and he put a lemon wedge inside each one. i know they put their germy ass hands on the lemon wedges. and everyone is sick and coughing

Just wanted to give a big shout-out to JM3 for all the time he has committed (and continues to commit!!) to the Pogathon series of games. From the organizing, to timely scheduling, to a great selection of events, and to an ongoing record of thoughtful and fair modding decisions.....thank you very much!!

It is all much appreciated by the POGGERS, JM3...

Thx for all you do.

Playing 1-2 NLH in Vegas today has the same atmosphere as playing 1-5 stud circa 2002. Itís pretty sad.
