Tales from the Store Front
Houstonians are busy — but not gun-crazy — on Black Friday
You are such a brave, brave lot, Houston holiday deal diggers.
We've been keeping up with you on Twitter and Facebook since Kohl's opened at 3 a.m., and we have to say — you're far more ambitious (and photogenic at the crack of dawn) when it comes to Black Friday than we are.
At only a little after 10:30 a.m., some of you were shamelessly pulling our legs, claiming to have contributed $2,000 to retail America already.
Do you want to see an entire website double over in panic on your account? We didn't think so. Don't ever do that to us again!
But in all honesty, that gag is much better than the Wisconsin woman who cut in line at a Toys"R"Us store and threatened to shoot anyone who ratted her out. And they say Texans are gun-crazy!
Some of you are keeping your wits about you, though, reminding us to exercise mall avoidance with Cyber Monday right around the corner.
We love to see you getting into the holiday spirit, and helping each other out so that no shopping tummy runs on empty. Cheap Eats in Houston has been incredibly diligent in compiling a list of where you can nosh your teeth for free or on the cheap while you're out stimulating the economy. All that dough-dropping can really work up ye olde appetite.
What else does this fabled Friday hold? You tell us. Regale us with your Black Friday tales. Because there's nothing like today — a day where American consumerism is indisputably at its very finest.
