Shop Until You Drop, Then Go Eat at These Restaurants on Black Friday


Shopping and eating, eating and shopping.

That’s all I’d like to do for the rest of my life.

Oh, and I’d also like to pet a Holland Lops bunny somewhere in between those two activities.

Black Friday is (yay!) this week, which means 1) you need to haul your @$$ out of bed early and 2) make sure you eat. Shopping takes energy, you know. Here are three places where you can get fueled up:

1. “Black Friday Brunch” at Central 214
6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
5680 N. Central Expressway

Folks can take a break from their Friday shop-a-thons anytime from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and stop by for $1 Mimosas and Bloody Marys (offered for brunch the entire weekend), a specialty coffee bar, and holiday menu specials.

2. Max’s Wine Dive
3600 McKinney Avenue, Suite 100
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As soon as Dallasites are done reflecting on what they’re most thankful for and have managed to squeeze in that last bite of Thanksgiving stuffing, their attention turns to Black Friday shopping strategies. To maintain enough energy to find all the best deals around town, shoppers need to fuel up and MAX’s Wine Dive helps them to do just that. This Black Friday, MAX’s will open at 9 a.m. for brunch, one hour earlier than usual, and offer special Black Friday menu options. Busy shoppers can drop in and order three delicious pork or turkey breakfast tacos to go for just $10. They’re the most convenient brunch items in town, served up in a MAX’s branded Frisbee keepsake. MAX’s will also offer its regular brunch menu to dine-in customers. For more information, please call (214) 559-3483.

3. Meddlesome Moth
Friday, Nov. 23 , 7 p.m.

The Moth will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year, but will open on Black Friday with several special stout releases, such as Green Flash Serrano Double Stout Cask Ale, Santa Fe Java Stout, 2011 Rahr Winter Warmer and a number of cellar releases throughout the day.
