Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
The Curbed/Eater/Racked Bodega Week extravaganza starts next week, and we're seeking your contributions! Please e-mail us with your a) nominations for best bodega in the city (address and reasons for nomination included), b) best bodega stories and secrets, and c) photos of bodega cats. Note that we're not going to run addresses of bodegas with cats, so you don't have to worry about getting anyone in trouble with the Department of Health. [The Mgmt]
