Populist: 1 - 10 January 2009

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:

  • We put our ducks in a row for the new year, brought you up to date and loved you for helping us iron out those new look kinks. There's still a few of them about so please keep commenting and playing with our buttons.
  • The atheist bus hit the streets and now it's down to the Advertising Standards Authority to prove the existence of God.
  • Look at all those cabs! And that U-boat! Watch out for the drug dog. And sad farewell to the romantically derelict disused Primrose Hill railway station
  • With gloomadon poppers forecasting the extinction of Morris dancing we dug up our local troops, formed a square and yelled "hey".

    What's hot:

  • Board games. Sexy. Also, Brazilian interactive art, back surgery, cheap stuff and Londony learning.
