Populist: 5-11 April

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:

  • G20 protest aftermath: a bystander dies, new video evidence emerges, but what was the point of it all?
  • More protests: Tamil protesters at Westminster Bridge and Parliament Square.
  • London Bridge Station to become less grim.
  • Westfield: a "ghost town" despite 10 million visitors in 5 months?
  • Check out the news archives for more.

    What's hot:

  • The cast of Red Dwarf in Berkeley Square.
  • Unique shops that time forgot on Lower Marsh.
  • Alternative drinking: Mock Tudor Boozers.
  • Cherries selling for a mere £3 (each).
  • London landmark confectionery, sailors hanging hot cross buns, uncovering obscured ovoids, origami (and real) wildlife, Handel's Messiah, "I'm Brian and so's my wife" and chocolate galore - it's all going on this Easter Weekend.
  • Check out the Arts and Events and Food and Drink archives for more.
