As of now, you've got two chances left to win one extremely rare, highly coveted, downright impossible-to-find $250 ticket to the September 7 Fashion's Night Out runway show. Today's photo just went up on our Facebook page. Whoever leaves the best caption will be included with the four other winners in a drawing on Monday, at which point we'll randomly select one lucky reader to take home the ticket. (Winner must be able to pick up the prize at our East Village office; only Racked NY Facebook fans are eligible to win.)
Yesterday's contest featured the photo above, of throngs waiting for tacos outside Tory Burch. It was a really tough call, but in the end we decided the winner had to be the person who rewrote five lines of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" speech. It takes a special kind of genius—and kind of a lot of effort!—to turn "Or to take arms against a sea of troubles/And by opposing end them?" into "Or to bare arms against a cart of tortillas/And by Vogue-posing, eat them."
To Tory Burch or to Taco Burrito? That is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the line to suffer
The sling-backs and narrows of outrageous fashion
Or to bare arms against a cart of tortillas,
And by Vogue-posing, eat them.
