HERALD SQUARE—Those who don't mind getting touchy-feely in public probably already know that Wednesday is, apparently, National PDA Day. If that sounds like something up your alley, head to Herald Square from 8:30am to 12pm to join Nivea for coffee, a cuddle, and the chance to win free prizes and products. Plus, Wendy Williams is hosting. [RackedWire]
UPPER WEST SIDE—In honor of its 29th birthday, the Robert Stuart Salon on Columbus Avenue will celebrate from 10am to midnight on Wednesday. In addition to cake and Champagne, there will also be a raffle for the chance to win gift cards, blowdries, and more. The first five Racked readers who call to book a haircut and mention this post will receive 1983 prices, which according to the salon, were somewhere around $30 to $45—in case you forgot. [RackedWire]
