UPPER EAST SIDE—Donald Goerke, the man who invented SpaghettiOs, passed away last weekend. In his honor, mod goddess Lisa Perry has set up SpaghettiO-themed windows. Better yet, the store is actually serving the canned delicacies. If you're looking for a snack on Madison this weekend, definitely stop in. [Racked Inbox]
RED HOOK—"I was standing in the organic-food section of the Red Hook Fairway when I heard a bird tweeting." Thus begins Lost City's investigation into Fairway's avian intruders.

Which makes sense: If we were birds in Red Hook, we'd want to live there too. [Lost City]
