Pushing, shoving, possible lethal trampling. There's no time like Black Friday, the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season, to see humanity at its very best.
Which may be why Jeff Kraus of Crépe Bar in Tempe is doing something a little sweet (and savory if you'd like) prior to the starting bell.
Kraus' Crépe Bar is staying open from late night 'til early morning for what it's calling a Black Friday Fuel-Up. Closed for regular business on Thanksgiving Day and the Friday following, Crépe Bar will be open between those times -- from 11 p.m. Thursday night until 8 a.m. Friday morning -- to give shoppers (or those who just want to pop by) a tasty boost before the day's craziness.
Along with a special menu of sweet and savory baked items, guests at the Black Friday Fuel-Up can also take advantage of a special holiday espresso.

And if after the big day (and weekend) you still haven't found that perfect present, there's always a gift certificate to Crépe Bar (available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or stopping by the restaurant starting on Sunday) -- a gift as nice to give as to receive.
