Originally started as a local alternative to Black Friday, Plaid Friday Weekend is now three days long and you should definitely take a look at the gift guide. But since holiday shopping makes me hungry (and I can’t be the only one), this post is about the things you can eat and drink while you’re running around. I went through Oakland Grown’s list of participating food businesses and here are six specials for Plaid Friday Weekend you should know about:
If you need a cocktail, Doña Tomás is serving a Plaid Toddy for $8 all weekend.
5004 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland
Get a free beer flight if you spend $50 at Hog’s Apothecary all weekend.
375 40th Street, Oakland
Order an entree at Hopscotch Oakland and get a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. And 25% of all proceeds from bottles of wine purchased on Plaid Friday, Nov. 24 will be donated to North Bay fire victims.
1915 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland
On 11/24 you can get free hand-cut fries or garlic thyme potato wedges at Proposition Chicken with any purchase when you mention Plaid Friday.
