For the third year in a row, I will make the rounds procuring records on Black Friday. This year, however, I’m inviting anyone to join. (And trust me, if you think I’m giving out trade secrets, I could give you a running start and still beat you to the choice records.)
I’m giving you my itinerary, so you can meet up at any point along the way.
- We will start at Benetti’s Coffee Experience at 6:00 for caffeination. We’ll leave for Half Price Books in Westport. Although it opens at 7:00, we”ll arrive around 6:30 because there was a really long line last year. The store hands out bags with $5 gift cards and coupons. The store has a 20% off sale the entire day, and one lucky person in that first 100 gets a gift card for $100.
- Next, we’ll stop at Mama’s 39th Street Diner for breakfast. They have the best omelettes and pancakes in town, so we have to go. I might even get some of their amazing carrot cake, too.
- After breakfast, we’re going to Streetside Records. The store has been selling used records for a while now, but I got wind that it’s fallen into a serious stash of music that will be “priced to sell.” It opens at 9:00.
So yeah, see you bright and early on Friday!
