You guys - TRADER JOE'S IS 50 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!
|Celebration sign at our local Trader Joe's (they also had balloons!)|
|Party at Trader Joe's?? That elevator couldn't come fast enough!!!|
And I tell you, Trader Joe's Clarendon knows how to party! For starters, they have a guy named GARY who works there who is a musician and he performs! Like, IN THE STORE!!! We were lucky enough to see him singing one other time and it was great. Sadly, today we were there at the wrong time, but he was setting up as we left and he gave us a sneak peek at his set list: all songs from 1967!!! (Get it?? 50 year anniversary, songs from 50 years ago... Gary is clever that way!!) We are going to try and go back tomorrow and see him play.
They also are having a drawing where we miiiight win a great give bag full of TJ's merch or a gift card (fingers crossed...).
Also super cool, the employees all had 50 year TJ's t-shirts. But ULTRA COOL was Kara, who went out of her way to totally bedazzle the hell out of her shirt!
|Each letter is BEDAZZELED! Seriously, I love it. Adorable!|
|She even blinged up the BACK!|
Seriously, the shininess of the shirt helped with the party vibe!!!
And guess what?? There are items on sale for .50 cents!!! I mean, wowsa!!!
|2 days only - 50 cent stuff!|
A baguette (which we are taking with us for a pre-show picnic when we see the remarkable David Sedaris perform tonight!).
|Ooooh lala - a cheap baguette!|
|Get it while you can!|
|Now that's CHEAP!|
|You HAVE to have spaghetti in the cupboard at all times, right? |
Get some while it is on sale!
And, get this, we got a dozen eggs, normally $1.29, BUT TODAY AND TOMORROW FIFTY CENTS!
|Looks like we were not the only ones grabbing eggs|
And I certainly can't promise you the dulcet tones of Gary (cuz there is only one Gary...) or the blingy shirt of Kara (again, only one Kara...). But I still say - YOU NEED TO GO TO YOUR TRADER JOE'S TONIGHT OR TOMORROW (August 19th and 20th, 2017) TO CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF JOE.
Cuz you know as well as I do, that deserves a party.
