Fine, upstanding, worthwhile-to-the-community organizations like the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center gotta weigh in early on in the holiday season against the big mega-titans of consumer commerce in order to be contenders. So strap on yer wallet and peruse their annual Peace Market this black Friday (and, uh, sinister Saturday). They’ll have handmade, one-of-a-kind gifities, unique arts and crafts, all centered on “themes of peace, social justice, cultural diversity and ecological concerns.” So preferable to the themes of competitive brand-emblazoned piece of crap kiddie plastic you hate, but will in all likelihood capitulate to. Balance out that shitty karma with some socially conscious purchases. 10am-6pm, November 28 & 29, 922 San Pedro, (210) 228-0201, esperanzacenter.org. — Sarah Fisch
