Every Friday, Off The Record looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for bits of news we missed throughout the week.

• Do people still make “Whole Paycheck” jokes when talking about Whole Foods? Just parents and grandparents? Okay, cool. Anyway, the Whole Foods on Milwaukee’s East Side, near the intersection of North and Prospect avenues, is getting some new stuff. A new “bar venue” with 20 taps and legally mandated video games is the star attraction. A revamped cheese department, a revamped beer and wine department, and revamped food and bakery offerings round out the upgrades. The store will remain open during the process, which is expected to finish up in late spring. [Milwaukee Business Journal]

• NEW ZED KENZO SONG. [Soundcloud]

• NEW REYNA VIDEO. [Billboard]

• The annual Morning Glory Art Fair will move from the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts to the “live block” of the Fiserv Forum. The fair will run August 10 and 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. [OnMilwaukee]
