After the big (gobble, gobble) day, when everyone in your house (including the cat) is living on the Elena Ruiz diet [Link], and memories of camping outside Wal-Mart for a shot at the 5 AM rush are making you wish you could swing by a Walgreen's and pick up one of these [Link] life goes on. This weekend a few art venues are mimicking retail stores (have you seen the Florida Craftsman Gallery windows lately?) competing with their own "Black Friday".
