None of these are clearly extravagances and fit more in the comfort-food categories for me...and as Vegas properties go, pricing was definitely reasonable.

So it was only twice as much as you would find anywhere else instead of the 3-5 times the usual.

For the old school folks, that symbol would be known as a "pound sign", therefore that would be 60 pounds.   Of course anyone born after 2000 thinks that he said "60 hashtag" and that the ha

For all you medium well and beyond people, please do us a favor and stick to chicken and pork, or just go vegetarian.  Don't waste our precious steak, lamb, duck and other wonderful game meats by cook

This is why I don't like it when You-Know-Who goes with me to Costco.

These won't be seen again until he asks me when we bought fish-flavored Sno-Cones.

This the fresh, raw shrimp sold by the meat and deli or the big box that's in the freezer section?

 

ETA: I just devoured a bunch of shrimp cocktail. I ate about half of the bag (about 40 or so) then I looked and saw the date ... "Best if used by 6-1-2020" ... oh well. I have a fresh roll on the ready just in case things go badly later. Yes, they were frozen since I brought it home from the store, I thawed them out yesterday in the fridge.

Don't forget the tuna cookies for the putters.

Things like this is why its impossible to leave Costco without spending at least $250. I got out of there yesterday for $130 including the trip to the snack bar for the Costco Hot Dog.

I rarely spend more than $50 when I go in alone, unless I'm buying steaks.

 

And even then it's unusual to breach $100.

 

BTW, these are awful, which aligns perfectly with my prediction in the store.

If I get out of Costco and it is under $400 I consider myself lucky.  Between the meats and household goods plus the inevitable impulse purchase or two, it just seems to add up really quickly.

 

We have bought the bags of U-15 frozen shrimp quite a few times, they are a good size for cocktail.

Not even that much...but then again, I am not unaccustomed to dropping $20 on a meal pre-tip.

When I'm in New Orleans I make a point to have this dish at Mr. B's Bistro.  They serve it with the shrimp heads still attached (unless you ask, which I do).

 

It's remarkably simple and worth a try (or a repeat performance).

Mr B's has a lot of good food, but there is so much in the Quarter that I prefer that is equally as good but at lower price.  I know they have to cover that Royal St. rent nut somehow...but $5.75 for Abita is also absolutely insane.

Due to the reality of mortality, I've had to modify my Hunter S. Thompson diet.

Thanks to a monthly $10 dining credit on my Amex Delta Gold, I decided on this vietnamese feast for lunch.

In-room dining?  :)  

 

When I'm traveling, I hate having dinner outside of my room. 

 

There are people out there.

Yes. In-room dining. Or as I like to say, Room service at the Econo Lodge really is a thing.
