Happy Thanksgiving! Recover from turkey with sales, freebies and the FarmShop Bakery — all tomorrow! OK, yeah, I only got events for Friday. Good thing I didn’t have to do Carson Daly’s “AMP Mornings” today! Still. Lots of fun stuff.
Friday, November 26
**FarmShop Bakery Opens
** Finally FarmShop, brought to you by Bouchon’s former culinary director Jeff Cerciello, is opening! OK, not really. It’s more a soft opening where just the bakery is open for business. So for some post-turkey breakfast, you can swing by and grab a pastry and coffee. Brunch won’t start til December 4th.
- 7am-6pm. FarmShop, 225 26th Street, Suite 25, Santa Monica (map).
**Black Friday at Royal/T Cafe
** Got a lot of teenage girls or friends into cutesy things on your Christmas list? Score 75% off the kawaii likes of Tokidoki and Hello Kitty at the Culver City Japanese maid cafe/store. The TRON stuff isn’t included.
- Royal/T Cafe, 8910 Washington Boulevard, Culver City (map). (310) 559-6300.

Luna Park and Henry’s Hat Black Friday: Bill Reimbursed in Gift Certificates
This sounds like one of the most awesome deals ever. For every dollar you spend during lunch or dinner at either Luna Park or Henry’s Hat, you get a gift certificate, rounded up to five! However, the gift certificates will be split between both restaurants. It’s almost like eating for free.
