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:

  • Bostonist went gay for Palin at the Tax Day Tea Party.
  • DCist was stunned by a new video of Prince George's County police officers beating a Univ. of Maryland student during a post-game celebration that got out of hand in College Park.
  • Chicagoist celebrated what they love about Spring but forgot to include giant fireballs in the night sky and Tax Day Tea Party protests.
  • Torontoist found it a little funny that Avatar was doing an all-out ad blitz on Toronto's major transit hub, given, you know, what the movie's about.
  • Shanghaiist went to the local Shanghai Zoo and uncovered all sorts of horrid stuff: dogs being mistreated in filthy cages, elephants being forced to perform tirelessly, and visitors behaving worse than animals.
  • Londonist reveled in its Britishness this week, dressing up in tweeds for the world's most dapper bike ride. Meanwhile, Londoners enjoyed the bluest skies in centuries, after UK air-space was closed due to a volcanic ash cloud.
  • LAist put together a Google Map of a delicious Dim Sum walking tour of Chinatown.
  • Houstonist, mired in the depression of the Astros extremely sluggish start, devised a way to lift their spirits with spirits.
  • SFist found yet another reason to worship Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, while discovering yet another reason to be weary city protests.
  • Gothamist learned that FiveThirtyEight statistician Nate Silver found New York City's best neighborhood to live in is Park Slope, Brooklyn.
  • Phillyist caught up with Steve and JoAnn Ward in advance of the new season of VH1's Tough Love.
  • Seattlest expressed equal parts historically inspired excitement and supernatural dread at the announcement that the artifacts, and attached curse, of King Tutahkhamun will be arriving in the Emerald City in 2012.
