Boston’s Best Non-Shopping Alternatives On Black Friday
" Black Friday (November 29) is historically a good time to shop in regard to prices. However, concerning lines and crowds, it is notoriously horrible. These days, shoppers can get most Black Friday deals online and sleep in peacefully the morning after Thanksgiving. Beat the crowds at the shopping malls and indulge in a concert, play or museum exhibition. It costs less and is fun as opposed to a giant headache.
