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:

Chicagoist survived a round of apocalyptic storms in which lightning struck the city's three tallest buildings at the same time.
  • SFist fetched the smelling salts after looking at this shocking Gay Pride window display at the downtown Diesel store.
  • Bostonist rocked the American Craft Beer Festival for the third year in a row.
  • Londonist encountered some super-cute knitted pigeons in Trafalgar Square, and learnt about a celebrity bus tour of London, and a special opening of one of the city's 'ghost stations'.
  • LAist learned that some Critical Mass cyclists were initiating a movement called "Project Civil Obedience" so riders would obey all the laws during their monthly group ride.
  • Torontoist experienced an earthquake.
  • DCist's morale during an insufferable heat wave was boosted by video of a dude shamelessly getting down on the Metro.
  • Shanghaiist learned that 77% of Chinese citizens would move to Canada if they could.
  • Austinist looked at the Texas GOP platform, which includes themes like anti-gay legislation and voter ID.
  • Seattlest considered Smith Tower, which was the tallest building west of the Mississippi for some time.
