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 found out Banksy was in town on Monday, only to see his pieces dissed by Tuesday. However, this tourist sidewalk lane might be his work. Gothamist also created this primer on what's not a Banksy.
  • SFist survived another Bay to Breakers race, the city's annual costumed marathon of pomp and hilarity, but held its nose after participants used Tehama Street as a toilet.
  • Seattlest examined what Sarah Palin's endorsement of Redskins tight end turned knuckle dragging, tea bagging, alfalfa farming GOP Senate candidate Clint Didier means for the Washington state Senate race.
  • Shanghaiist found a shopping mall that hosted a bra-removing contest.
  • Torontoist's in-depth uncovering of dirt at City Hall helped clean up (a scale model of) their city.
  • Chicagoist went to the dogs, visiting The Great American Mutt Show.
  • LAist reported on a demonstration by UCLA students and professors in favor of the DREAM act, which shut down Wilshire Blvd. and led to 9 arrests.
  • Houstonist took in Catastrophic Theatre's latest production, Wallace Shawn's The Designated Mourner, and the new album from local indie pop crew Wild Moccasins, Skin Collision Past.
  • DCist was disappointed when homegrown rapper Wale dropped out of performing at DC Black Pride amid allegations of homophobia. Wale eventually defended himself via Twitter.
  • Phillyist previewed the With Love Super Adoption Day, a huge outdoor event bringing together most of the city's shelters and animal rescue organizations. Check back next week for photos!
  • Londonist laughed as the official 2012 Olympic mascots were unveiled, looked forward to Captain America's visit to London and built a map of local galleries, museums, etc. on Twitter.
  • Bostonist examined the wonderful ways drivers

    can piss off bikers
