Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:
NEW YORK—Here are photos of downtown NYC's shopping streets with lines outside of Whole Foods and "mannequin carnage" inside a flooded J Crew.
LOS ANGELES—LA-based jewelry wunderkinds Bones and Feathers Collective are hooking up online shoppers with 15% off in honor of Halloween (or Dia de los Muertos).
CHICAGO—If you have the cash, they have the poem: The duo behind Poems While You Wait will type up a poem about anything on their typewriters and deliver it where you want. Service!
