Populist: 8-14 June

Introducing Populist, an idea we've borrowed from our friends in Toronto, bringing you a bite sized round up of the best of Londonist this week. Catch up on the coolest, quirkiest, most recommended and talked about stories and find out what's hot and what's happening for the week ahead.


In the news:

  • First pasty rage, now queue jumping killing. Retail based rage is getting out of hand.
  • New Art on the Underground based on 'found photographs' got people talking.
  • We had the first glimpse of Team GB's Olympic kit and everything it contains.
  • ... and on Boris Watch we went Shakespearean over claims that Ken left behind a stash of Mayoral booze inspiring Boris, minding the pennies, to trash his predecessor's plans to entertain, Ramsay style, at Beijing.
  • What's hot:

  • The Hayward Hyperbolic Crocheted Coral Reef
  • The Ramayana at the British Library
  • Beautiful onion bhajias at Mirch Marsala
  • The launch of Londonist's Film Club!
  • Check out Music Choice and Arts Ahead for more.

    Also, parking meters had their 50th birthday this week.

    Over at Kudocities, people chatted about drinking yourself to hospital, free swimming by 2012 and saying good morning to people . Would you get a haircut at the boozer? Why not join the conversation?

    Images L-R clockwise, onion bhajias, Team GB on display, happy birthday parking meters and dragon boat racing. You can keep track of our most popular posts by checking out Favourites

    Many thanks to David Topping for inspiration!
