Elsewhere in the Ist-a-verse

We're guessing most of you are hungover from St. Patrick's Day. We are too. But still, we're going to muddle on through our green haze and give you (drum roll please...) this Week In -ists.
We start with SFist which broke the -ist record for comments with nearly 500 comments on a post about our Mayor's girlfriend. She responded back on charges that she's not a "girl's girl" and, whoo boy-- the floodgates? They did open. Why all the fascination with Gavin's girlfriend? Was it the violation of the girl's code? Or simply href="http://www.sfist.com/archives/2007/03/12/caption_action.php">her choice of fashion? Either way, SFist had the Best Week Ever.
Gothamist saw cops indicted and two volunteer cops shot. They also saw lines form to register kids for pre-kindergarten, searched for frozen yogurt, and shook their fist at a very bad man who mugged old ladies.
Chicagoist was all about leisure activities. Maybe it was because their daily rag is expanding to weekends? But they had a story on on the Olympics and plenty of restaurant reviews.
They then waded into perhaps one of the most intractable issue of our time-- does
New York or Chicago have the best pizza?
Austinist threw themselves a SXSW party and checked out a new guerilla dance production. They also settled the debate about who's got the best queso in town and detailed displeasure at a housing development.
Londonist went shopping and bought themselves some crocodile skin Nike's. Luckily, they didn't get in trouble so didn't wind up in some department store cells but thought the price on the Olympics was too high. They didn't buy but still dug a YouTube clip of Lilly Allen as a Sim.
Houstonist might have been a tad angry this week as they found some long rant about the world's worst boss and a local beat someone to death on the NJ Turnpike. Elsewhere, they checked out a photo exhibit on what Houston looks like to people who've never been there and interviewed soccer star Brian Ching.
