Kirkland Gelato at Costco Cafe

I stopped dead in my tracks today when I saw a new sign above the ordering window at the local San Francisco Costco, Kirkland GELATO. Now available on the menu is an ice cream cone with not one, not two but three scoops of ice cream* for one dollar and fifty cents. That’s right, one dollar. Fifty cents! And, it’s in a waffle cone, no less!


*ice cream is gelato style, and it is available in three flavors: wild berry, pistachio and stracciatella.

no lines at the Costco!

a photographic tribute to Costco

Costco. Quite possibly the greatest warehouse club that ever was, is and will be . . .

My favorite Costco employee is Gui, and I’ve known her since 2005. She works in the San Francisco store, on the corner of 10th and Harrison. Granted, I’ve never spoken to her, other than to place an order at the Costco cafe. But her quiet dignity, fast and efficient service have left a lasting impression on me and seeing her there always makes me happy.

I created a gallery on Flickr which is a tribute to my experiences at Costco, from the Gui and the rest of her team in the cafe, to the runners on the floor with their flashing skiffs, to the food demonstrators who feed the restless masses, calming them with delightful bites of food, Costco employees have retail down to a science and dare I say, an art!
