UNION SQUARE—Lifestyle Mirror launched a street style contest back in February, and on Saturday, contestants wishing to still get in on the fun can enter in person by having their photograph taken in Union Square. Basically, whoever has the most unique street style gets a $1,000 AMEX gift card, and 10 runner-ups who almost have the most unique street style will get $100 AMEX gift cards. The outdoor shoot will take place from 11am—5pm at the Southeast corner, and the winners will be announced in April. [RackedWire]

UNION SQUARE—The new Rothman's location on 18th Street and Park Avenue is now officially open, and to spread the word, they're hosting an Opening Celebration. Through Sunday, 10% of the total proceeds will go to New York Cares. Maybe knowing that, President Obama will be more inclined to stop by. [RackedWire; Previously]
