Optical Underground has just received a new shipment of Oliver Peoples eyewear (200 pairs!), so tomorrow, Tuesday June 24 from 6:30 to 8pm, the store is hosting a special night of shopping with First Dibs at eyeglass outlet's Union Square store (280 Sutter Street). The frames are originally $295-$450, but at the event, prices will start at $149. And everyone who attends will receive a free single vision lens with purchase (normally $49). RSVP is required!
To celebrate the four-eyed festivities, Optical Underground is giving away one free pair of Oliver Peoples glasses to a lucky Racked reader! It's easy to register, just like Racked SF on Facebook, and then like Optical Underground on Facebook. Hurry, you have only until the end of the day tomorrow!
Not familiar with Optical Underground? It's a third-generation family-run "speakeasy for optical swag." They buy overstock, samples, and discontinued eyewear (including sunglasses) from elite designers and sell everything for at least 50% off the original price. Plus, they regularly host First Dibs events for their insider customers—sign up here to become one! And get liking to win those free glasses.
