Londonist is one of thirteen sites 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 continued its coverage of the G20 with a look at the 14 essential videos to come from it, and even tracked down the guy who was captured on video politely tackling one looter.
  • DCist said hello to a new editor-in-chief and got excited about Spike Mendelsohn's new pizzeria.
  • SFist, following the annual Gay Pride Parade festivities, reported on a related police beating caught on tape.
  • LAist followed up with the new and improved Critical Mass bike ride; turns out behaving well equals "overwhelming success."
  • Shanghaiist found proof that not only is Barack Obama in fact a communist and not from the U.S., he also lends his name to a supermarket here as well.
  • Chicagoist mingled with older women at the Second Annual Cougar Convention.
  • Phillyist celebrated its fifth birthday and cleared out its archives to celebrate.
  • Houstonist mourned the loss of two of our favorite haunts, focused some attention on local poster art, and talked with musical w√ľnderkind Lance Higdon.
  • Gothamist learned that Hollister closed its Soho flagship store because of... bedbugs! The store reopened a few days later, but who knows how well fumigation worked?
