Grocery Outlet Summer 2018 [SF Bay Area]


Bayshore Blvd SF.
Easterlina Pinot noirs $10 and cabs $15. I’ve always liked their wines but unfortunately they went into bankruptcy so their wines are now a steal at GOs in SF.
Momofuku Ssaam sauce 99 cents. Donkey Sauce for the foodie set

The new Grocery Outlet in Alameda has been open for a few days now. It’s the most visually appealing store of the 6 or so that I’ve been in. The wine section is not as extensive as SF/Geary, Oakland or Richmond/San Pablo Ave. though the food selections have almost the same varieties. It didn’t yet have some of the 2-for-1 bargains I see at Richmond. A lot of shoppers seemed curious as possibly first-timers. The store had kind of a Trader Joe’s vibe to it with bell-ringing from the cashiers for customers who had garnered large savings on their receipts. A nice store, perky and bright and customer service seemed friendly.

It’s a half block east of the corner of Webster and Buena Vista which is served by at least 3 AC Transit buses that connect to downtown Oakland and beyond. It’s also about 2 blocks from an In-N-Out Burger where I got a Double-Double with cheese, Animal-style ( 2 patties, no bun, wrapped in lettuce) for $4.05 plus tax for the trip home, where I washed it down with an American Thread 2015 Pinot Noir, Monterey County (earthy, peppery, mocha, black cherry, $3.99) from GO.

A slideshow (about 5 min.) with items from Grocery Outlet in Richmond CA at San Pablo Ave and MacDonald Ave. Lots of pumpkins and good deals on cheese and sausages.

Some differing opinions on the 93 rating from Wine Enthusiast for the 2013 Malbec Clos d’Argentine seen at the 2:24 mark. Personally I liked the currant, licorice and leather notes but what do I know.


Its interesting that the comments about this bottle are all over the map…


Maybe that’s why local wine reviewer Kerry Kirkham calls it “Grocery Outlet Roulette.”
