Black Friday! Or time for a drink?

Any good Black Friday deals this year?

Hopefully online to make it easy.

Or nothing worth bothering with and make a drink instead?

I'm all about Cyber Monday, but I have no desire for shopping in-person with the masses on Black Friday. My plans are to consume a 15 year Scotch.

That being said, free shipping seems to be the overwhelming deal of the season:


Amazon

Free 5- to 8-day shipping on most "Prime" items, without paying for ""Prime"...which is increasingly less of a deal year over year.

Walmart

Free 2-day shipping on orders of $35 or more; items by third-party merchants now qualify

Target

Free 2-day shipping on all orders until Dec. 21.

Best Buy

Free 2-day shipping on all orders until Dec. 25.

To me it seems like more and more retailers are putting emphasis on black Friday over cyber Monday for online sales. I always do my shopping from the comfort of home.

Many of the Sam's Club Black Friday deals are online only with free shipping.

They'll have a 55" 4k LG for $399 and a 65" for $599. I don't need any TVs this year though.

I plan to shop online. And I really only need a new barbell and some more bumper plates. I’ll hit up Rogue’s Matte Black Friday sale and then Wright Fitness. Both make their barbells and bumper plates here in the USA. If you need something for your garage, those are the places to shop.

About a decade ago, a buddy of mine found an alternative to shopping on Black Friday. While the wives and kids went chasing their Black Friday sales, the dad's went dirt biking and four-wheeling in the woods around his hunting land, shooting targets, drinking and hanging around the bonfire. About 1 1/2 hours from our neighborhood and suburban lake. Rural neighbors started looking forward to the day, and would drop off a cord of wood or more for the fire. And they'd help us burn it. Well into the night / next morning.

Pretty soon, word got back and the kids begged to come there instead of the mall and big box stores. (Ironically, mostly girls.)

Then the wives started coming.

<< Start to insert joke. >> Except, this stayed a dad's thing, where riding, shooting, drinking and sitting around telling yarns are the expected culture for the day / weekend. If the women and children don't like it, they are free to go back to our suburban homes and spend the day shopping.

Today, a buddy of mine texted me and asked if I was going. I honestly have heard none of the planning for this year and haven't seen many of the crew since putting my boat away, but my answer is "Of course I'm going."

So Black Friday or time for a drink? Ummm, both. But they won't involve shopping.

Both!!!-I usually head out to the stores with a flask in pocket and just walk around randomly picking things up and looking at them-Never intending to buy anything!
