HOT SPOTS

Hangin' in all the right places

A tummy full of free samples awaits.




Costco’s free food
makes a great meal


There are two things that college students never seem to have enough of: time and money. There never seems to be enough time to study, and time quickly slips away when we're out partying.

I guess we could party less, which would allow for more study time, but honestly, that will probably never happen. So I will focus on something that we can change: how fat our wallets are.

When I'm hungry, I don't crave Taco Bell or McDonald's. Granted, they have cheap and tasty grinds, but I would rather eat someplace where the cuisine is varied, exciting and ... free!

Now that Costco's open in Iwilei, it's a whole new venue to check out. Costco may not be at the top of most fine diners' lists, but after I make my way up and down each and every one of those aisles, I always walk away a satisfied (and full) customer.

The key is to go with a friend so you can both pull off the "Oh, I'm just going to grab an extra for my friend" routine, which works out to twice as many pigs-in-a-blanket, salami and crackers, etc.

Last week, I sent you over to the Mai Tai Bar at Ala Moana Center. I'm positive a student could live off of Costco and the Mai Tai Bar and go on to lead an almost completely normal life.
