Cover Black Friday With Us

Unless we’re too drunk on tryptophan, 5am this Friday, November 24th finds us freezing our butts off in a North Carolina parking lot, documenting Black Friday madness.

Won’t you join us? If you’re going to be doing Black Friday too, send us your photos, videos, deal snags and stories. Black Friday updates from around the country! “Doot doot, doot doot doot, this just in on the wire…”

For now, we’ve got our sights set on this Best Buy in Charlotte, NC. (Anyone know if there’s free wi-fi in this parking lot? Or, readers familiar with the Charlotte area, is there a better Black Friday locale?)

We’ve also enlisted Gawker videographer Richard Blakely, and possibly a photographer, to document Manhattan’s Black Friday adventures.

File your reports at tips at consumerist dot com, subject line “BFF.” UPDATE: You can also upload images or video to Flickr/Youtube and tag ’em “TCBFF.” If you use a different service, tell us so we’ll know where to look. — BEN POPKEN
