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:

  • Torontoist spent the week giggling uncomfortably after a free mass-distributed daily paper accidentally printed a full-color photo of a penis.
  • Seattlest followed Tiger Woods' alleged eleventh mistress into the wilds of Washington State.
  • Shanghaiist found the most buttastic eatery in Shanghai: ASSMANN RESTAURANT.
  • Bostonist watched Santas run in Speedos.
  • LAist jumped headlong into the mystery of why American media fears the terrifying threat of derivative homosexuals—aka Adam Lambert.
  • SFist watched as a gaggle of drag queens crashed a family-oriented ice skating rink in Union Square.
  • Chicagoist was surprised when - on the year anniversary of the arrest of former governor Rod Blagojevich - a candidate for governor suggested the minimum wage be cut.
  • Phillyist honored a few local superheroes as they continued to count down to the new year.
  • Gothamist learned that activists trying to repaint a stretch of bike lane in Brooklyn were arrested by a Hasidic patrol group. The activists later said they were "self-hating Jewish hipsters."
  • Londonist noted the extended fiasco of constant weekend closures of a busy tube line, joining the rest of the city in wondering who to blame.

    Well done Toronto newspaper- Friend William Shakespeare may have headlined the revealed article as 'A Winter's Tail'. Had London been twinned with Toronto, I could have suggested headline as 'Tail Of Two Cities'; but will have to be satisfied with 'Great Expectations'.
