We won’t fault you for already planning your Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, and Cyber Monday binge (we have our eyes on those Carbon 38 liquid leather leggings, too).
If you need a little debrief post Turkey Day and pre wallet purge, here are six ways to slow down, chill out and get your eat and drink on:
Starting at 10 a.m. fuel up for shopping at Mueller’s Pub with a Black Friday Brunch.
O-Ku is premiering its new late night menu this Fri. at 11 p.m. The menu will be available Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Executive Chef Eric Hill will be offering apps like seaweed salad, Ika Sansai, truffle and salt edamame, rock shrimp salad, and Tokyo wings; sushi rolls including California roll, Cali crunch, spicy tuna, tuna crunch, fire cracker, and potato roll; and desserts like mochi ice cream, yuzu pavlova, chocolate bar, and green tea cake. There will be live music, too.
From 1 to 9 p.m. Holy City Brewing hosts a Black Friday Oyster Roast. For $15 enjoy AYCE oysters until they’re gone, plus 25 beers on tap. There will be live music from Dee Coulter from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., and HCB will also be starting their holiday gift card special, which means they’re giving you an extra $10 in gift cards for every $40 you spend.
Dog and Duck Belle Hall throws their 17th annual oyster roast from 3 to 9 p.m. Enjoy AYCE oysters plus $4 Blue Moon drafts.
The Barrel wants you to skip the big box stores to come hang out starting at 4 p.m. for their yearly release of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. They’ll have the original bourbon county brand stout, which is aged in four+ year old Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with flavors of cocoa, vanilla, caramel, almond, cherry, and tobacco. They’ll also be pouring Bourbon County’s Midnight Orange Stout, and will have the vanilla stout, original, and orange stout bottles available for purchase. First Name Basis will be providing the ‘za and The Nocturnal Kernalz play from 5 to 8 p.m. Bring your dogs, as always, plus the little ones — they’ll have human foosball, corn hole, shuffleboard, and giant Jenga to entertain everyone.
Celebrate making it through Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and out of town guests with food and beer at Commonhouse Aleworks. Chef Brannon Florie will be onsite starting at noon with eats like loaded kimchi tater tots, a double cheeseburger, confit chicken wings, and more. Enjoy the brewery’s new expansive outdoor patio and stage area while you sip on a pint of the Barony Whipper Dark Cherry.
Oak Road Brewery in Summerville hosts Black Friday with Brian from 7 to 9 p.m. Every Black Friday, they open up the brewery so the average Joe drinker can see what it’s like to brew Oak Road beer. Enjoy donuts, brews, and lots of space to just hang out.
