Craft Beer Black Friday: Declare Your Independence @ The Hay Merchant
Friday, 10 a.m. (kitchen opens at 11 a.m.) to close
1100 Westheimer

The Hay Merchant will be offering a killer selection of stouts—hand-picked from the cellar by Kevin Floyd—at ridiculously low prices (full list is available online). Floyd has also drafted a “Declaration of Independent Beer Drinkers” and the first 30 customers to sign it will receive a present. Long live the revolution! 

Black Friday Lunch @ Provisions
Friday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
807 Taft

Do you hate shopping but love eating lunch? Then hit this Montrose standby for a stellar post-Thanksgiving lunch on Black Friday and purchase a Pass & Provisions gift card for 20 percent off. The offer is good for any value and can be used at either restaurant. It's like free, delicious money.

Black Friday @ Karbach Brewery
Friday, noon to 9 p.m.
2032 Karbach

Break the Black Friday mold and spend your day at the brewery, instead. Because Karbach swag, local food-trucks (plus their excellent full service restaurant), and great beer beats massive lines at The Galleria any day. There is no cover charge, just good times.

Saturday Morning Bake Sale with Philip Speer @ Fluff Bake Bar
Saturday, 10 a.m.
314 Gray

Hope you’ve recovered from the holiday food coma. This Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition of Fluff’s drool-worthy Saturday sales will feature all kinds of awesomeness from pastry mastermind Philip Speer (formerly of Uchi fame) — meaning you can expect it to be extra tasty. Get the goods from 10 a.m. until the sell out.

8th Annual Foamraiser @ The Orange Show
Saturday, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
2402 Munger

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Arts and Saint Arnold Brewery have teamed up to bring Houston another evening of music, art and beer. Guests will enjoy a couple of specially-tapped beers alongside live music provided by Folk Family Revival and hilarious comedy sketches from Beta Theater. Tickets are available for advanced purchase for $20. A limited edition Foamraiser pint glass will be available for purchase as well.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
