I SAY THIS BECAUSE I LOVE YOU.

THIS IS FOR ALL THE LOVELY PEOPLES WITH BURNING QUESTIONS REGARDING THE $8 FOR $4 KOGI VOUCHERS. The semi-pseudo 2-for-1 coupon.  I say semi-pseudo, because y’all still get $4 off whether you spend $8 or $20.

AND FOR THE PEOPLES WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT, PLEASE SCROLL THROUGH THE FINE PRINT TO GET TO THE FUN PART OF THE POST.

So, as I was saying, I just wanted to offer a few clarifications regarding the Google offers — which seemed simple enough when we decided to go for it, but I guess there have been some confusion…

(CLEARED UP IN RECENT POST)  ;–__–

MOVING ON…

Dude, I’m totally an old fogey (as evidenced by my impending birthday, and the fact that I am much more dangerously close to 30 than I am to 25), so it’s only been about a month since I’ve figured out what those “pin it!” buttons mean that have been popping up all over the place.

YES, Kogibbq and EatChego now have Pinterest accounts. No, I haven’t populated them with super inneresting things yet, though I do think that they will aid me in having an area of creative focus for my insanely tangential mind.  The funny thing is that evidently both accounts have followers, though, sadly, I’ve yet to put anything up.

In other words, THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNSOLICITED SUPPORT!  I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT — whilst at the same time burdening myself with the embarrassment of having done nothing to earn this support just quite yet.

Anyway, I’m super new at it, so I have no idea if there’s a code of etiquette for Pinterest yet, like the unspoken rules Emily Post in regards to emails, blogs, Twitter, FB and even Tumblr.  So if anyone has a clue, feel free to clue me in, so that I can be somewhat wary or mindful of them, even as I’m breaking them.

Lord knows, I’m probably breaking them RIGHT NOW.

But from the little I know about Pinterest, it seems like the perfect outlet for all the strange and wonderful things I find when working behind the register at Chego.

She came into Chego last week. I believe her name is Jade. She plays poker. She's kinda framous for it.

I love that his is all her own hair. No faux hairclip, no extensions, no cheating. IMPRESSIVE.

I loveeeee smart colors that pop... smartly. Yes. That was redundant.

Joy to the world. She comes in every week. I ruv the little motorcycle buckle she attached to her handmade scarf. And her big-arse Blossom hat. She makes the 90s look timelessly funky.

I’ve gotta say, the ladies really nail it in the style department at Chego.  The dudes don’t do too bad neither, but it’s the women who really kind of got the outerwear nailed in the creativity department.

Where the men shine, however, are with their gadgets and gizmos aplenty, and most especially their wallets.  I’ll see if I can snap a few quick ones tonight while I work the counter so y’all can see what I mean.

Yes, that is a custom-made Hard Candy blue iPhone.

Yes, he can custom-make your iPhone to be any color you want! But unfortunately for you, I lost his contact information. Boo, Alice. :(

But that’s about all I’ve got for the gentlemen this week.

BEE TEE DUBS, I want to issue a warning regarding BOMBARSE COUNTERFEIT $100 BILLS!!! Even if you mark them with a special marker, they will be a bit difficult to detect.


Case in point:

Can you spot the fake one?

I

will

take

up

some

space

here

for

people

who

don’t

want

spoilers

and

want  to

play a game

and see

if their

instincts are

correct.

Cuz, I KNOW,

does the actual 100-bill

have a purple stamp

or was that

added

to throw people off?

OKAY, ready to see?

IT WAS THE BOTTOM ONE.  If you look closely, it’s slightly smaller than the top bill, though it’s made from the same paper.

REAL.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand…

FAKE.

Yes.  What makes it so successful as a counterfeit is that it’s actual $5 bill to begin with.  And I’m gonna go out on a limb here, but I’m guessing the counterfeiters bleached out actual $5 bills and printed over them.  So if you’re super busy and just checking for a FACE on the bill, or just marking it real quick with a marker, it’s easy to miss.

And remember.  REAL BENJAMINS HAVE PURPLE SEALS ON THEM.

I’m not even mad at the customer, because I think that even SHE was unaware that she was holding a fake.  In any case, I just wanted to give a head’s up to folks out there, especially to those who run small mom-and-pop businesses.

And now that the real Slim Shady has been propped up for all to see, y’all can return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Love, tacos and rice bowls,
Aliiiiiiiiiiiiiice

P.S. Other funny money I saw this weeeeeeeeeeeek.

ZOMBIE WASHINGTON. Auuuuugh!

Assasinated version of Jorge Washington. Pre-zombie-fried. KewL.

P.P.S. Chego ONLINE ORDERING IS UP! And yes, there is a $2.50 convenience fee for wrapping orders under $50.

    The issue wasn’t just that there wasn’t any real discount, it was that it took the cashier 15 minutes to figure it out, bringing all truck activities to a screeching halt.

  2. Alice Shin says:

    Oooooh, thank you, Dennis! I forgot to add that part to my post and have since edited it. Apologies if the newfangled math and lack of concrete foolproof systems had held up the line in any way.

    (( H U G ))

    We’ve never done this before and will definitely do our due diligence before attempting something of this magnitude again.

  3. @dutchvon says:

    Here’s the issue with your “deal”. Yes you’re giving us $4 off. But you’re forcing me to spend $8 just to get my $4 back. That’s a rip off.

    What if I just wanted sliders for $6? I now have to spend an extra $2 just to get back the $4 I already spent?

    That’s not a discount, that’s called extortion.

    Maybe next time you should put this “fine print” on the offer before people actually buy it, instead of saying “$4 for $8 of Korean BBQ”. What a scam.

  4. Belle says:

    This is faulty math.

    I buy Kogi voucher for $4
    I go to truck and show voucher for a $4 discount.
    This turns this into a giftcard. I only purchased this because I thought this was a discount.

    I should be able to show the voucher and get an $8 discount.

  5. Papi says:

    Extortion seems a bit strong dutchvon, but I appreciate your passion towards Kogi. Especially with a hungry stomach in line with a voucher.
    We love you all, truly.
    We messed up but caught ourselves to make it right.
    Isn’t that why you love us too?
    Because are not perfect?
    Kind of like you?
    Kind of like us all in the Kogi universe?
    It wasn’t extortion….

    Love,
    Papi
