RACKED 38 BADGE—As seen at right, this badge is awarded for a significant number of check-ins at stores that have occupied a spot on the Racked 38 list of our favorite stores. To earn the badge, you must follow Racked on Foursquare.
FOURSQUARE LISTS—Yesterday, Foursquare rolled out a new list-making feature that makes it easy to, well, make lists. In that spirit, we've replicated our Racked 38 lists not just in New York City but in all Racked cities. Go ahead and follow the NYC Racked 38 as well as the LA Racked 38 and the Chicago Racked 38.
