While officially, Black Friday takes place the day after Thanksgiving on Friday, November 24, nowadays online shopping deals are available earlier. But still, people will want to buy in person and drag themselves out of that comfortable bed after all of that turkey and Thanksgiving food and take advantage of good shopping deals throughout the city. Likewise, there’s Small Business Saturday on Saturday, November 25, a day meant to highlight local, small, independent businesses.

In light of those two shopping-geared days, Austin-area restaurants, breweries, and wineries are helping to fuel shoppers with food and drinks and/or offering their own specials. Everything below is listened by date and then alphabetically.

While Eater Austin didn’t publish a holiday gift guide this year, there are plentiful previous editions to browse (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021) as well as Eater National’s and other city sites guides,

For more shopping fuel, check out Eater’s dining guides to the Domain and Barton Creek Square Mall.
