NYC Black Friday shoppers: Where to go for (clean!) bathrooms, antacid samples

It's hard enough to find a mildly sanitary bathroom in New York City on a normal day, much less Black Friday. To make it worse, that second serving of pecan pie and third glass of wine from the night before will undoubtedly be taking its revenge the following morning. Thankfully, one company is offering shoppers some much needed relief in the form of bathrooms and free antacid tablets.

On Friday, Nov. 23 — aka Black Friday — from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m., NYC shoppers can stop at the east side of 5th Avenue between 17th and 18th streets to take advantage of Di-Gel's "Comfort Zone." The antacid brand is providing clean, free restrooms; a wonderfully warm, heated tent with comfortable seating; charging stations for phones; and free samples of Di-Gel "on-the-go" 15-count antacid tablets — to remedy any post-Thanksgiving indigestion shoppers may be experiencing that morning.

Let's be honest: Black Friday is never going to be comfortable; but it can less uncomfortable with a clean place to warm up, a restroom that didn't cost you a venti macchiato and a quick solution to that battle raging in your stomach.
