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 investigated some onomatopoeias ("OUCH!" "THUNK!" "OOF!" "YIPE!") painted along a road, pointing to potential hazards for cyclists.
  • Gothamist had its fill of salt-related news: There was "salty" Eric Massa's resignation and "snorkeling" allegations and then a NY lawmaker's proposal to ban salt.
  • Bostonist spent the week pondering local challenges to Obama's health care reform from both the right and the left.
  • Seattlest went behind the scenes of much-lauded local pizza place Delancey.
  • Chicagoist began a new series in their ongoing look at the battle to bring another Wal-Mart to the city, this time exploring what it's like to work at the store.
  • Shanghaiist found a cafe advertisement for Starf*cks.
  • LAist couldn't apply the brakes to the comments section on this post about a San Diego man's runaway Prius.
  • Phillyist co-editor Jenn DiSanto and staff writer Leigh Simpson represented Philly at the Disney Princess Half Marathon ... and made it to the finish line.
  • SFist waited in line to visit the SF Underground Market.
  • Houstonist pondered the addition of two minor league baseball teams within its metroplex.
