How to Survive Black Friday Madness! What to Eat

You might have camped outside the mall all night, and are already clutching your beloved doorbuster to your chest. If you need some sustenance, here are a few specials for you:

Float is a combination coffee shop and soda fountain in the Burlington Arcade, located in South Lake Avenue’s shopping district. Float serves fresh pastries delivered daily from The Larder, made-to-order sandwiches, and seasonal ice cream floats made with Fosselman’s Ice Cream. On Black Friday, Float will be serving $2 hot chocolate all day long with 50¢ toppings, such as Reese’s peanut butter cups, Heath toffee bits, peppermint candy canes and more.

Tsujita, the new favorite noodle shop in L.A. will offer a special all weekend. Starting on Black Friday, all new hand-crafted ramen dishes on the menu are only $1.99. Options include Chicken Ramen, Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen, and Killer Noodle Original. The catch? The specials are only being offered at the Tsujita in Americana at Brand.

The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge at The Grove offers a comfortable respite from the madness with a seven-hour happy hour starting at noon on Friday. Popular items include their classic burger, Jidori chicken wings and cajun-spiced fried calamari, as well as $5 beers and $6 cocktails.

Eater has announced the Black Friday premiere of Blackbird Pizza Shop, serving both thin-crust and deep dish pizzas. Don’t expect slices or delivery, but check out their “Butcher Shop” offerings like Vermont Salumi, Speck, Nduja, and salads from the “Snack Shop” like Local Burrata, Vine Ripe Tomato, Tuscan Olive Salad, and Basil or Little Gem, Fuyu Persimmon, Pickled Red Onion, Feta, and Saba.
