Black Friday has evolved into almost a holiday in its own right. Today, we will all need to decide if we want to go to the Really, Really Free Market in the Glenwood Neighborhood, or if we want to head to one of the big box stores, or another tried-and-true destination like Friendly Center. In the above photo, three men are at the counter eating breakfast at Jake's Diner on Wendover Avenue. They could be sitting there while their spouses are out shopping. Perhaps, they are just having breakfast before they start their own day.
Even though the guy in the middle has his black jacket hanging on the back of the chair, we affectionately dubbed this photo, "Men in Black" evoking thoughts of the 1997 science fiction movie, loosely adapted from the comic book series. Hopefully, they aren't out looking looking for extraterrestrial life forms living among us! That's what it can feel like if you are out facing the maddening crowds today. We hope you had a great Thanksgiving and that you find time to do something special today. Remember, tomorrow is Small, Local Business Saturday. If you intend to shop, please support locally-owned businesses in Greensboro- a good practice every day!
