To celebrate, the store is hosting a Stars & Strips photo contest. Send your best pic to union@myfotobar.com for a chance at a $250 store gift certificate. Opens Monday.

DC MeetMarket
More than 40 local designers, artisans, and food vendors gather together to peddle their wares at this monthly market in Logan Circle. This month, check out jewelry, accessories, clothing, and furniture from featured designers Jon Wye, Third + Grace, Diament Jewelry, Yakitoko, and Iberis, among others. A family-friendly rock band will perform. Saturday 11 to 5. 1514 15th St., NW, in St. Luke’s Church parking lot.

Seersucker Social
For the fourth year, vintage-loving social group Dandies & Quaintrelles hosts its annual Seersucker Social and associated bike ride. This year, the event can only be accessed by joining the group as a member—but top-level membership gets you access to the badminton-and-croquet-filled festivities, plus a picnic lunch, four drink or dessert tickets, picnic blankets, entertainment, and shuttle transportation to the event. The event is only open to the first 500 guests (and last year the 1,000 tickets sold out), so move quickly! Side note: Proper Topper is offering 20 percent off full-price clothing and accessories if you mention that it’s for the event. Sunday. Location to be announced the day before. $25 to $45. For more details and membership, vist the Dandies & Quaintrelles site.
