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, 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.

Earlier today we did get the sad, sad confirmation via cellular telephone that Cans sports bar on Damen in Bucktown is closing. So that is no longer a rumor. We were told that the building will be retail, which a leasing agent confirmed. From what we hear through the tipline, the prospective tenant showing the most interest is a athleticwear or sports equipment store--which should be great news for that futuristic 24 hour gym up the street by Robin Richman and Larkspur. So folks, yes Cans is saying bye-bye this February, before March Madness starts which really makes us sad that moments like this won't be happening anymore.
