Populist: 12-18 October

Populist brings 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:

  • Brand new Wood Lane station opened on the Hammersmith & City line whilst the London Paper decided to smash through Hammersmith's shopping centre with its dodgy tube map. Two more revolutionary Routemaster designs were unveiled and traffic lights got rephased.
  • Kingsway's subterranea went up for sale.
  • Our Beijing summer success was celebrated with much patriotic flag waving.
  • Screw the credit crunch. We're partying on. Our heads are hurting.
  • What's hot:

  • Basketball sold out the O2 and went viral
  • We were unimpressed by the new Unilever commission at Tate Modern, impressed by a comic timing, split over the St Pancras frieze and excited by the Regents Park Frieze.
  • Lunch down on the farm was yummy and wholesome but then candy floss went and ruined all that.
  • Le Cool made our bookshelf look great and the Book Grocer returned in time for the Booker prize.
  • Check out the Arts and Events tag for more.
