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 aghast at the cruel April Fool's Day joke where pranksters told New Yorkers that an In-N-Out Burger was coming.
  • Torontoist tooka brief tour of a 300-square-foot house. Yours for only $179,000.
  • Shanghaiist examined the problem with zoos in China—they're underfunded, underregulated and some of them are selling off their tigers to make the certainly illegal tiger bone wine.
  • Chicagoist got caught up in the kerfuffle over a state politician who said he "doesn't really worry about the Constitution" when it comes to health care reform.
  • LAist went aboard Worldfare, LA's first "bustaurant"—a double decker bus that serves everything from South African street food to high-end steakhouse eats.
  • Bostonist helped plan a tea party counter-protest to Sarah Palin's impending visit.
  • DCist took note when French President Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni stopped by historic local eatery Ben's Chili Bowl for a half-smoke.
  • Phillyist staffer Allison Krumm embraced her Jersey roots at a recent Bon Jovi concert.
  • Londonist was boggled by Anish Kapoor's plans to build a rival to the Eiffel Tower in London, then went to watch the Oxford versus Cambridge Goat Race.
  • SFist celebrated Passover with several of its almost-delicious kosher lunch options.
  • Seattlest waxed philosophic on the weekend's most important holiday, the Japanese Penis Festivals.
