Black Friday has become a holiday within itself.  The jaw dropping door busting deals are big enough for people to leave the comfort of their home and stand in line for hours and hours for the perfect purchase.  While you are waiting in line dreaming of your purchase your stomach is begging for another round of turkey.  You can tame the beast you call your belly by pre-gaming for Black Friday at some local restaurants. These places are open just in time for you to grab a quick snack or more before you begin your Black Friday fun or you may want to end your shopping spree with a satisfying meal.
