A Dublin 7 café is giving out free coffees in protest of Black Friday

I like my coffee like I like my Fridays…

BANG BANG IS a deli and greengrocers in Phibsborough renowned for their mean sambos and lovely coffees.

One thing they’re not here for, though? All this Black Friday malarkey.

In fact they’re revolting against the notion and offering free teas and coffees to anyone who feels the same.

This morning they posted the following status on Facebook, bemoaning the “Americanisation” of Ireland.

Hearing and reading non stop adverts for “Black Friday” in Ireland, whilst unsurprising, is pretty sad. It represents all the negatives of a consumerist modern society…..has nothing to do with Ireland (or even Europe) in any way…..the media here lap it up….and no doubt a lot of society will too. The Americanisation continues…..

And that’s where the free stuff comes in:

Today – on this lovely cold crisp Friday morning we’ve a different message. If you want to escape the constant selling directed at you come in to us and mention you aren’ into all this Black Friday business. We’ll shake your hand and give you a free tea/coffee. Sound x
