Black Friday Beer
On Black Friday millions of Americans hit the shopping malls to purchase electronics and toys marked down for the kick-off of the Xmas shopping season. The term 'black Friday started with Philadelphia retailers describing the four-week period as one that turned the red on their books into black.
The BBC estimated that nearly half America will join the consumer frenzy this weekend.
I refrained from the frenzy and on Black Friday purchased two cans of beer from Ralph's Meats on Lafayette Street in Fort Greene.
They went down so good that I'm thinking of drinking some more today.
ps the bronze Ballantine beer cans are from Jasper Johns.
