Before it was Black Friday and before social media, the day after Thanksgiving used to be just another day to play. It was a bonus day off to connect with friends and family.

This year, we’re bringing it back, so you can get everyone together for events that focus on straight-up fun, free of devices and distractions.

Open skate with the fam? Done. Free workout class? Say no more. Forget the FOMO, because here’s your chance to #Checkout something awesome.
