It’s that time of year when, having given thanks for what we have, we go about the hard, joyful work of sharing it. In this week’s events roundup, we’ve included several opportunities to find unique gifts with a local flair – as well as a couple of great concerts to help you enjoy the holiday season.

Black Market: Saturday, Nov 25

This event brings together more than 25 local black-owned businesses offering unique holiday gift ideas – and it’s also a showcase for some great music. The lineup, starting at 1pm, includes Jessica Sweet, singer Nova Wright, rapper Queen of Ex, and drummer Mutanta Lumbala. And yes, just in case you’re confused, this Black Friday is actually on Saturday. Free admission, noon-6 p.m. Skyway Mall, 4301 34th St. S.

Hidden Histories Neighborhood Bike Tour – Sunday, Nov. 26

St. Pete Preservation has put together a great way to burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories. This guided ride will fill you in on the history of several of St. Pete’s artistic hotbeds, including the Warehouse Arts District and the Edge District.

The ticket price does include a bike rental for those who need one, and all riders are required to either bring or rent a helmet.

$25, 1pm-4pm

Starts and ends at The Independent, 1049 Central Avenue, St. Pete

21 Savage – Sunday, Nov. 26

Oh, you lucky dogs. 21 Savage is the future of rap, and he’s at the intimate Ritz in Ybor — probably your last chance to see him outside of an arena for a while. Savage has a sinister, low-key take on over-the-top aggression of gangsta rap, layered over a trap beat. His forebears include Three Six Mafia and Miami’s SpaceGhostPurrp, but Savage smooths some of the rough edges, including downplaying the misogyny that too often seems inherent in the form.

Worth crossing the bridge.

$37.50 and up, 8 p.m.

The Ritz, 1503 E. Seventh Ave., Tampa

Honorable Mentions:

Grand Central District Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday will be going on all around town, but this has to be one of the best areas to do your St. Pete-specific shopping. 10% off from participating businesses. 11am-10pm, 2500 block of Central Ave (give or take).
