Populist: 9-15 November

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 happening for the week ahead.


In the news:

  • Livingstone's back and this time he's Progressive. Paddick's back too... not quite so serious.
  • Happy hours are getting hammered but Acton's all up for binge drinking on a tenner.
  • The Estuary airport's inching forward whilst unlikely bedfellows team up to buy Gatwick.
  • Wembley Stadium cracked! Or did it?
  • What's hot:

  • Go, go, go find Neate's street art! If caught short in Clerkenwell while you're out, Passing Alley might prove popular.
  • Spare a thought for the lorry drivers and medical types working this weekend.
  • We marvelled at panoramas then and now, a hidden roof garden, delicious Spanish food and really good looking tapas.
  • Check out rising stars Rizwan Ahmed AKA Riz MC (he can't turn his radar off) and Catherine A.D. (Kate Bush dead and gone to hell).
  • Check out the Arts and Events tag for more.

    Images from top left, clockwise: Remembrance Day, pants at St Pancras, Catherine AD and one of Martin Creed's Tate runnners. You can keep track of our most popular posts by checking out Favourites or using the Populist tag.
