Plaid Friday at stores across Somerville

All day

The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally known as Black Friday — when people wake up early and swarm local malls and outlet shopping centers for deals that put the stores “in the black.”  Instead of hitting the Pru or Wrentham outlets, why not show local shops some love and participate in Plaid Friday, an event organized by Somerville Local First aimed at bringing shoppers to independently owned businesses. Bonus points if you wear plaid.

November Walk/Ride Day at Davis Squared

10:30 – 11:30 a.m.

Walk/Ride Day, intended to encourage local residents to walk or ride a bike to work or school, falls on the last Friday of every month.  This Saturday, Mayor Joseph Curtatone  will lead a bike ride through Somerville, starting at Davis Squared and ending at Grand, with stops at other local businesses along the way.  It will not only be a great way to work off that turkey, but also the perfect chance to kick off the 2010 Shift Your Shopping campaign.
