    Great optometry office adjacent to the pharmacy - have been getting contacts and glass prescriptions here for years. Very reasonably priced and quick - can walk in but best to make an appt.

    Hot dog with mustard and ground onion is key. Purchasing at the regular check-out and picking it up doesn't save you as much time as you'd think, especially for the gelato

    Right now 6/6/2011 this location has 750ml bottles of Dupont Saison, Moinette, and Foret for $6.99, $7.99, and $7.99 respectively. You can't get the beer cheaper even in Belgium!

    Fantastic selection of organic produce, meat and dry goods! Quite a few local items as well. Grass fed beef in the far back freezer!

    seriously low-priced pharmacy, $25 per month vs the $250 a month I was paying at Rite aid. Plus they'll let you check out with a few small items, the lines are never long. A+!

    The food court gets packed in the afternoon. They only have a few tables so secure a spot before ordering. Be friendly and share a table :)

    Who doesn't love Costco? Free Samples, cheap hot dogs, chicken bakes, cilantro shrimp, roast chicken, bulk sizes

    Best to get there when it opens. Go with a list and put your "patience" hat on. Nice, helpful staff (when you can find them).

    Order your hotdog before doing your shopping to avoid the long lines and having the tables taken at the end of the day.

    Want the $1.50 hotdogs combo but don't have a membership? Say that you're gonna open a membership or purchase liquor to he door guy, then walk right in like a boss

    You can't beat the $1.50 hot dog and soda deal. Also, don't be in a hurry as it's pretty much always slammed.

    If you are like me and don't own a car, you can rent one for a few hours using the getaround app. Much lighter on the wallet than getting a taxi.

    $1.50 for the best hot dog, add onions, ketchup, mustard, and enjoy your soda with free refills

    Pick up a pair (or more!) of AMC Gold passes for $15.99. They can be used for all engagements, including ones marked "No passes." You'll end up saving a couple bucks per ticket!

    One of the best places to grab a free, multi-course lunch (in other words, samples galore!)

    If you come here hungry then just go around sampling the free food and you'll be full in no time.

    When leaving, you shall go down the ramp, buck a right and cut through the traffic if you're going toward market/ S.Vanness.

    You don't need a Costco card to buy liquor. CA Law prohibits charging a membership for the purchase of liquor.

    Don't get your heart set on a chicken bake... unless you want to wait longer than the 20-30 minutes you already spent in line.

    You don't need a membership if you are only buying alcohol. But it's cash only.

    The guy at the seafood counter is pretty old and takes forever, so make sure you get in his face a little.

    Stay away from the rack of lamb. On two separate occasions I have gotten meat that was inedible and foul-smelling, even thought it wasn't even close to the sell-by date
