Here's what happened today in Racked cities across the country:
NEW YORK—In desperate need of a shredder tee? Nasty Pig is auctioning off a selection of tees designed by celebrities, and all proceeds benefit the Ali Forney Center.
SAN FRANCISCO—A Banana Republic employee accidentally shipped sensitive employee information to a customer instead of a tie and pocket square. Because those things are easily confused.
CHICAGO—What does your cakeface look like? Whatever it is, the team behind the return of Twinkies wants the world to see it in this new guerilla-style advertising campaign.
