Heads Up!

Sadly, the Cost Plus (also known as World Market) location on the Katy Freeway (by Town & Country) is closing its doors.  The store claims that the heavy construction on the Katy Freeway has reduced its customers to the point where remaining open is no longer feasible.  I am utterly bereft about this.  I adore Cost Plus and am now faced with the undesirable commute into the Galleria in order to continue shopping there.

With the Katy Freeway/Memorial location closing, a new store will be opening up in Webster.  And while that’s not a whole lot of help to those of us here on the west side of town who love, adore and depend on Cost Plus for things like specialty foods and high-quality, low-cost wines, there is one tiny silver lining to this dark cloud:

Cost Plus has their entire stock of wine on sale for 25% off.

The wines they stock are — like I said — generally very high quality, so expect that it will be picked over soon.  I would suggest getting to the store early tomorrow morning in order to get the good stuff while you still can.

If wine’s not your bag, Cost Plus also has their entire inventory marked down by 25%.  That means all speciality foods, coffees, beers, chocolates, teas, you name it — is 25% off.  The discount also extends to their beautiful furniture, housewares, jewelry and home decor items.

So, in other words, if you’re currently stalking me, let me make it easy for you: I’ll be at Cost Plus early tomorrow morning, greedily picking over things like the vulture that I am.

I never realized before that xkcd had such a plethora of food-related cartoons.  And here I was, only appreciating them for their Linux humor…..

I especially like the name of the restaurant in this one…

A better ending to the Diet Coke & Menthos myth…

Come on, you intrepid home scientists.  You know you want to try it out…

Go on, Wikipedia it…

Frankly, I think the Frosted Bacon Flakes would be delicious.  I scare myself sometimes…

I do this with bagels and tubs of cream cheese.  It’s a dangerous, but delicious, cycle indeed…

Have a good weekend, everyone!
