It's almost time for the next quarterly update of the list we hold true and close to our hearts and wallets. It's the list of the 38 most essential, most crucial shopping experiences our fair metropolis has to offer. This spring for The Racked 38, we're feeling a little carnivorous and crave the fresh meat. It's been a great year for shopping and there are obvious newcomers--but we want your opinion. Send us your nominations via the tipline or let us know in the comments. [The Management]
