I think Black Friday/weekend is going to lose its cred as the biggest shopping weekend of the year, because at least around here, the two weeks that follow are bonkers. This week's Sold Out column is part 1 of a 2-part series in which I shut my mouth and just give you the facts about the bazillions and bazillions of holiday-related shoppery being organized by your friendly local retailers. It was too much to cram it all in print, but the online edition is more extensive, plus we have added some more late-breaking announcements over here on MOD so you can fully strategize your evening. Betcha five bucks I have all my gift shopping done by Monday, you guys!
