Leftovers, and What to do With Them

The best part about Black Friday isn’t having your face stepped on while you’re on the way to the electronics department.  It isn’t contracting hypothermia while freezing rain accumulates on your pajama pants.  It’s not even the incredibly mind blowing deals we slapped up on Streetside.
