Week Around the Ists

Londonist is one of thirteen in the worldwide Gothamist network. Once a week, the editors of each site - from SFist to Shanghaiist - compile some of their most interesting posts into a neat digest. Check out what's been going on elsewhere in the ist-a-verse:

  • Gothamist was saddened after seeing why Sad Panda is so so sad.
  • DCist caught up with the dapper gents and ladies who took to the streets in high style for the D.C. Tweed Ride.

  • Torontoist Googled its city. Googled it hard.

  • Seattlest sputtered in disbelief at a grassroots campaign in favor of a proposal to dig the world's largest open-pit mine.

  • LAist wondered if the city's drivers are ready to go Dutch—as in be taxed based on miles driven instead of the current taxes levied on roads and new car purchases.

  • Bostonist interviewed Russell Ferguson of So You Think You Can Dance.

  • Shanghaiist rounded up all the news you'd ever need to read about Obama's town hall in their fair city.

  • Phillyist wondered if all the fun was on its way out of town.

  • Chicagoist focused on Oprah Winfrey's announcement that she plans on ending her show in 2011—which resulted in Mayor Daley blaming the media—causing Chicagoist to reflect on the Oprah of yesteryear.

  • SFist yearned for a McRib sandwich comeback.

  • Londonist mapped every London location that Sherlock Holmes visited. So now you know.
