Best furniture store to buy a quality couch?

I’m looking at buying a new couch to replace my 2 decade old one. It has been through a lot with kids & pets. They are grown up now and much better behave. So now the my partner and I are ready to get a higher quality couch that is comfortable and not needing to worry about young children destroying it. I hear that Memorial Day is one of the best sales day for furniture so would like to have any recommendations. Here is top of my list: Crate & Barrel San Jose: I think they are running a 10-20% sale and also a 20% reward points promo if I sign up to their coupon What A Room San Jose: seems like they offer quality customizable couches and doing a 10% off sale. Heard a lot of good things from a distant relative that bought from What A Room a few years back. * Room & Board San Francisco: when I read through old posts about furniture room&board is always recommended. I’m not sure if they are offering much of a sale though. So let me know if you bought a couch/sofa from any of these companies or if you have any other recommendations around the Bay Area. Thanks!

At which grocery store do you find the best deals?

I know a lot of people like Costco for bulk, but what about the non-bulk stores? I can start – I normally go to Trader Joe’s for bananas. They were $0.19 per banana in the past, but they recently raised the price to $0.23 per banana.

Why does eastbound traffic on the Bay Bridge always get faster after the island?

Right now traffic on 101-N is backed up past Cesar Chavez, and yet it's green after Yerba Buena Island. I don't get it, I drive this stretch pretty often as well and it does clear up after the island, yet the number of lanes stays the same. Can any traffic engineers ELI5? Thanks!
