Frenzies: Pret A Manger's Free Sandwich Opening Stunt

Union Square: The Pret a Manger, in the old Tisserie space on the northwest corner of Union Square, won't open until Monday, but to create a certain level of frenzy around the opening, the chain is giving out 5,000 goody bags of sandwiches, popcorn, and brownies to those who snagged special vouchers this morning.
