You know the saying, "Friday, the best 'F Word' ever?" Well, it's doubly better when it's the start of a long weekend and triply better when it's a weekend known for its sales. So if you've been having a case of FOMO because you didn't make the trek out to the desert for Burning Man —or you're bummed by the total car-pocalypse on the freeways with the 280 closure— get happy knowing that you're so going to score big time shopping.
