View as Map

It’s officially the holiday season. That means mere moments after the turkey has been carved and the pie pan has been licked dry, smart shoppers are preparing to scour the earth for steals and deals. Perhaps even smarter shoppers can do so from the comfort of their homes, leaving Black Friday plans wide open.

Whether you’re willing to brave the crowds — and really, it does take a heaping portion of courage to dive into the throngs of competitive sale shoppers — or you’re enjoying a leisurely long weekend with family and friends, don’t settle for shopping mall food courts or lukewarm leftovers. Bring your A-game, and check out the bunches of brunches, lunches, and beer releases.

Bars and restaurants throughout the metro area are pulling out all the stops with deals, specials, and boozy Black Friday beverages. Save room: Here are enough ideas to get your belly grumbling for this Friday’s festivities.
