Well, it seems real life London decided to follow us and take our lead, fed up with the horrid weather, we declared SUMMER IN THE CITY.... and I think it heard us... its been glorious weather here... I think this is the first time I've seen people smiling this year :P....
|Gobby Magoo arrives in London City|
First off Gobby landed in Sim 1 hub, this is located in Soho, one of two hubs in London City, here people gather, it's a great place to make new friends, catch up on all the gossips, meet before heading into the city for fantastic night life.
I asked Gobby what she thought of the the hub in Soho...
"Well" she said " its has everything I expect London to be...Bright and Bustling, and loads of people about" ...
She wasn't wrong, London City is always busy, with fun loving people.
Some of the first people you will meet on arriving are our fabulous greeters, a dedicated team of people, who enjoy nothing better than a good chin wag, and helping all new residents find their way round London City, these guys are worth their weight in gold, always ready to lend a helping hand to the new residents.
Here's a few of the team that wanted to say hi.
Hi, I'm Tourma - I've been a London Greeter for about 5 months although I've been in SL for over 6 years. I love the atmosphere in London - always busy and interesting, always something happening. There are so many visitors from all round the world and the sense of Community is great. We often have lots of fun chatting and bantering together and I've made some good friends and enjoy welcoming and helping new people that arrive at the Welcome Hub.
Hi, I'm RonnieQ, I joined the London City team in October 2011 (halloween day!)
I really dot know what to say about myself, im a happy person, (or try to be) how likes to hang around, chat and help new residents. 2011 (Halloween day!) (Spooky!!)
Hi I'm longjohn. I have been in Second Life over a year nowI've been working as a greeter a few weeks now. It's nice helping the new comers. Lots to learn. I also host at Madam Lala's which is a chuckle.
Hi, I'm CoffeeQueen, most people call me CQ,I've been working in London for about 1 and a half years now. I started off hosting in Bar Soho, and now also work in Substation and run The Worlds End Pub with Katty.
I thoroughly enjoy my work in London, and have made lots of dear friends along the way. What I enjoy most about working in London is the people. I have met so many nice people since I arrived in London, and love to see the regulars who join us at the events.
Haloooo I'm Lokirat, been in London for almost a year, and sl for 3 years. I love working in London for the parties and events we have, there's a great community spirit, and we're all here for each other no matter what goes on in RL. I wouldn't leave for the world! :)
and they are all under the watchful eye of Evie.
Time in SL: almost 4 years
Time working in london: almost two years (I think)
I enjoy the interaction of SL and love that I can log on and chat to so many different types of people globally. I also believe in supporting others to come into and enjoy our community
And I'm a naturally stubborn person so I love a spot of ping-pong!
And on behalf of all the team and managers we want to say thank you for all their hard work xx
If you think you have what it takes to be a greeter, if you like to chat and help people. Contact Evie or Bean in-world, and maybe you can become one of our fantastic team.
|too much too soon :P|
Substation, found in Soho, a retro place, where everything is a golden oldie,
the venue is a throw back to the 60's and the music certainly gets your foot tapping with all the great tunes we know and love. We found ourselves at a Horror event, where everyone dressed in scary costumes for a chance to win some Linden Dollars.
Then we moved on to Bar Soho, fresh, clean, and swanky, Bar Soho is for the music lovers, boasting a different Dj, Host combination nightly, Bar Soho is the place to see and be seen.
right after the events closed, its time to say goodnight before heading off elsewhere in London City...we had a group hug.
Every Saturday Regents Park plays host to an awesome LIVE open air concert, that is totally free to attend.... This week i took Gobby along, you will never guess who was in concert... go on ... have a guess....
Only the awesomely talented Helvis Xue!!!!
Have some of that!!!
Helvis is a fantastic singer, singing all kinds of modern songs with an Elvis twist. Its a totally different take, and thoroughly enjoyable.
entertaining us not only with his awesome voice, but his fun banter, this guy really know how to work a crowd, much like the King himself.
As always people flocked in to the park, filling it up very quickly, it's always advisable to get there early to get your place on the dance floor.
Gobby and I were there partying with the best of them.
I think I for one partied a bit too hard ... oops
Thank heavens for the Sunday Smooth at Lala's, with Bailey spinning some soothing easy listening music, and fun relaxed banter.... A come as you are event, what could be simpler....
Later we bumped in to Regent Hoof himself...Regent is the Jr Ewing of London City, he had this to say " Nice t*ts toots"
I asked him if he would like to share a few words with us on the blog....
"toots, I'm too busy to fart, let alone talk. Tell um how wonderful their old mate Regent is. Find some way of letting the birds know that I'm a man of power and will get them a kebab afterwards and a taxi home. Well a minicab cos its cheaper."
Ahem ... moving on ...
Gobby and I moved on to Juiced,,, a themed club with a difference.... the themes change daily, along with the décor, plus the music is themed to the event to boot ...we had a right old hoot, as we attended a biker night event.
BUT THEN ......
SHHHHHHH!!! I think it's all been a bit much for our new friend Gobby Magoo, lets let her sleep it off....
And we still had loads more venues to Visit,... The Worlds End in the West End sim 2.
Dykes on Bikes and the SweatBox Sauna, The Palladium to mention but a few, oh well, we can hit them next time, sleep well Gobby xxx
I caught up with Gobby again, after she had visited a few other sims found in SL, I asked her what she thought of them .....
well... I guess that says it all :)
Thats all from me this week, I'll see you in London City ( the best destination in SL) next time for more fun and frolics xxx
