In its second bout of shop graffiti, Rag & Bone's Nolita outpost has been tagged yet again, and this time, it's worse. Instead of the previously scrawled "You Would" on the wall, someone wrote "Africa" in huge letters on the Cafe Colonial tribute wall, only to be later prefaced with "Fuck". Yipes. We just miss the days when the only news to report from this location was whether we were ordering cheese bread or not. [Bowery Boogie]
