Black Friday, OKC-style

Let’s talk shop.

I'm going to be honest with you: Black Friday freaks me out. A lot.

The absolute last thing I want to do after OD-ing on turkey is get up early and shove through hoards of coupon clippers (no offense to those who clip ’n’ save). 

Also, most BF offers come from corporate retailers, and honestly, I'd rather a more personal (read: local) product.

If you have the urge to shop but not battle jam-packed malls fraught with strollers, stick fingers and endless lines, then I've got a treat for you.

This year, 16th Street in the Plaza District offers local lovers an option. Get 20 percent off and stimulate your home economy!

Shop art at DNA, peruse vintage at Bad Granny's or pick up some handmade goods from Collected Thread, just to name a few of the great shops. Make sure and take a break for lunch at Saints and a glass of wine at the new Urban Wineworks. And voilà! You've got a stress-free, local day.

Refuse to go out but want to keep it in OK? Head on over to Etsy. Specifically those e-shops run by locals!

Make sure you pop by OU grad and local sweetie Marek Ferguson's shop for thoughtful and OK-themed treasures.

Love Oklahoma? I'll believe it when I see the pillow on your couch.

‘Tech’ crunch

Presenting the R&R DVD Gift Guide, Part 2.

Happy Cyber Monday! Guess that means you survived Black Friday’s greed stampede. And now that holiday season is into full swing, I continue pimping some DVD releases that should not be overlooked for gift possibilities. While not for everyone, certainly there’s somebody on your list who might appreciate such a disc. Today, we get robotic with “Robotech: The Complete Original Series.” At a ridiculous 17 discs, the limited-edition box set contains all 85 episodes — hence “Complete” — of the 1980s animated fave named as No. 34 of the “Top 50 Sci-Fi Series of All Time,” by no less an authority than IGN.com. (Yes, that’s stated with some sarcasm.)

Now, something like this that clocks in at more than 32 hours isn’t for just any ol’ cartoon fan, but specifically, the anime nut, provided that he or she (read: he) didn’t already pre-order the thing.

Four bonus discs include some of the 10 hours of bonus content, which includes documentaries, music videos, alternate versions, original pilots, deleted scenes, toy commercials, character bios, model sheets, comic book covers, merchandise galleries and the proverbial “much more.”

The DVD set is available now at a suggested retail price of $99.95. Just look how happy the guy below is! —Rod Lott

With the crush of holiday traffic, driving across town and back while shopping is out of the question. Depending on where in the metro you’re hitting the stores, why not stay put and eat, too?
