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:

  • LAist explored the issue of immigration reform and deportations—and the fact that California is home to one quarter of the nation's illegal immigrant population.
  • Torontoist invited readers to come up with a new slogan for their city.
  • Chicagoist stepped back into yesteryear and then stepped into Chef Rick Bayless's garden.
  • SFist visited Dore Alley, the city's annual hardcore fetish street fair.
  • Londonist traveled back in time a century to discover that their city was bombed

    . Back on terra firma, they gave London's new cycle hire bikes a spin.
  • Seattlest toasted a legendary local mixologist for bringing home "best bartender in America" honors from the Tales of the Cocktail festival in New Orleans.
  • DCist spent its week watching the city clean up from a massive thunderstorm. (But no power outage was going to stop this guy from making sure we all heard his thoughts on the Washington Post's editorial board.)
  • Gothamist found out that a judge feels wearing saggy pants is not a crime (though it may be foolish). Shockingly, Mayor Bloomberg, who has proscribed how New Yorkers should eat, drink and inhale, agrees!
