The Weekend Review 8 -10 June



Wow!! How fast has this week gone? It's zoomed by... And what a fantastic weekend in London city as always.

All week we had events at Bar Soho, Substation, Worlds end pub and Lezbo, all had contests and played great music, ranging from the 50's & 60's, Chart and Pop music, to Hardcore Dance, there really is something for everyone here, and that's what makes London City the Top Destination in Second Life, along with all the fantastic people and fun we have.


Friday 8th June

We saw the big opening of Madame Lala's, so to speak.
 New refurbishment, New manager.

 Madame Lala's is based upon  Madame Jojo's 8-10 Brewer Street, Soho, London W1 - circa 1986-1990.

In the late 1980's, Revue Bar owner, Paul Raymond opened Madame Jojo's, named after its Filipino manager,  female impersonator Jojo.

By the early nineties, Paul Raymond and its Manager, Jojo, had parted company, but the name lives on to this day.

Madame Lala's is based upon the era of 1986 to 1990, when Jojo's was a "Club Extraordinare" with a nightly Revue act ranging from live singers to amusing cheap budget shows featuring the staff of the club. 

The refurbishment has stayed true to the original theme of Jojo's but has been given a more modern twist  crafted by Ruby and Bailey. 


 
As Torric  bow's out of the proceedings to concentrate on other New exciting London City ventures, Bailey who did a wonderful job in Bar Soho takes up the reins,  and put's a whole new spin on this already popular club.
Madame Lala on Baileys new post,  " Lala look's forward to watching Bailey work the club, it gives Lala more time to drink and sleep.".... Lovely isn't she :)























Woooo Saturday! Busy as ever in London City, people from all over the grid came to the  live show in Regents Park, it is always a good idea to get there early as the sim fill's to bursting point and this weekend was no exception.! There was a best in Black and White contest, where people came in their mono-chrome  outfits in hope of winning some Linden dollars, it's always fun to see the many different outfits in the same theme.










And then Live in Regents park Mika.





On stage around  9pm. Mika and his band  rocked it! He sang his awesome songs which included Love to day, Big girl, you are beautiful, Billy Brown, and many more, which the crowd loved and  sang along with.



It was great to have a brand new performer in London city, and I'm sure Mika will visit us again, so if you did miss out this time look out for him again very soon.

After the concert it was time to head over to Lezbo,
Lezbo opens 10:30 pm / 2:30 slt, and it is a club with a difference, each night the club is transformed into a different theme echoing the best in event. On Saturday there was a a best in 80's roller disco.


The whole club was whisked back to the 80's with a neon glow which was very popular back then, free skates were given to everyone who attended so we could ALL enjoy the fun. Later the contest was announced and lucky winners left with a handful of Linden dollars.

Sunday saw Lezbo take on a skateboard park, what a hoot, people looking like Tony Hawk, skateboarding like professionals around the club, it was awesome.








So, that's me done for another week in the awesome London City.
I'll see you next time after another fantastic week xxx.
