Dear friends,

I know it's Black Friday, but take a break from your holiday shopping and learn about the history of the American Shopping Mall. It's not just a place to make purchases, it's a unique architectural marvel that brought a part of the city to the suburbs, plus they usually have an Orange Julius.

Thank you,
