Dull, Boring, Uneventful weekend - Not in London City, are you mad? We had more Fun than you can shake a stick at!!!
Here's the maths ...Dances+Events+Concerts+Special Guests+Prizes X London City = Amazing Fun with a capital F!!
Yes, if you missed the weekend with us, I'm sure there is some kind of therapy group you can join :P
so what was so great I hear you ask.... Well, let me tell you .....
Friday 29th June 2012
Substation has a friendly atmosphere, and is open every Friday and Sunday, and plays a mixture of golden oldies from the 50's and 60's.
Next stop .... Bar Soho
This week Bar Soho is my featured club, one of the more established clubs in London City, Bar Soho has been around for some time now, its had a few face-lifts in that time ... all better than the one before :)... Each night the club sees a different Dj and Host combination, all playing different genre overseen by new club manager Wil Youngblood, who has also placed a guess the next lyric machine in the club, what a hoot....and very addictive, with everyone firing random words out to win a Linden Prize. There is always a themed event too at Bar Soho yet another chance to win Lindens. This week we saw contests like "Best in Glasses" "Best in Hats" "best in Costumes" and many more.. Its a fabulous night out, and shouldn't be missed :)
Then on to Madame Lala's... Madame Lala's club is based on (Madame) Jojo's club in Brewer Street, London,
Playing a huge selection of the the funkiest tunes was our own Dj Fierce, and yours truly hosting, we had a great night, Best in Glam, and boy did you all look glamorous!! We partied into the wee hours, fun all the way!
Saturday 30th June 2012
It was one of those days with an electric buzz in the air, people were arriving early to the park, you just knew it was going to be a great party night, but then again it's always like that in London City, that's what makes us the Top Destination in Second Life..
Saturday is our big night in Regents Park, here our own Billy Arentire builds a custom made stage for great live acts to perform, this week, Billy transformed Regents Park into an Ancient Greek Temple, as we had the awesome singing talent of Demis Roussos ,
Demis was around London City during the day to help promote his evening concert, he really is a great chap!.
Sunday 1st July 2012
Whoa what a night last night!!! London City really does have it all, including a Sunday Smooth at Madame Lala's, a morning of easy listening tunes to ease you into your lazy Sunday, if you like your music smooth, jazz, soulful, and calm, you wont get anywhere better, great music, great surroundings, just the ticket!
Then back to Substation for more fun chats and dancing, and on to Lezbo to bring the weekend to a close.
See, I told you, another fab weekend in London City!
You will not believe what we have planned for you throughout July, keep ya eyes peeled and prepare yourself for the best EVER time with us !!!

So here we are again, except my blogging of the exploits in London City are slightly later than usual as it was a Bank Holiday weekend here so we continued partying through Monday. I am so exhausted that I am ready to get back to work for a rest.
Three parties seems to be the way of life on a Friday now with Substation hosting Best in 50's Fashion, Bar Soho having Best in Sci Fi (for May the Fourth) and Madame Lala's rounding the evening off with a Best With Own Teeth contest. I am not sure who actually checked the teeth, but thankfully it wasn't me.
Continuing on where we left off on Friday we had another three events on Saturday. The evening started at World's End with a Best in Angels and Demons themed event. Following on from that we headed on over to Regent's Park for a Best in Underwear contest with Tom Jones tribute taking to the main stage.
The night ended at Lezbo with an Under The Sea event and another of Ruby's amazing themed sets.
On Sunday we began to wind down from the constant partying as Substation ran a Best in Beatles Era contest. Plenty of Beatles' hits and a pleasant atmosphere in the 60s themed underground club. Sunday then finished at Lezbo with a Best in Spanish Outfit contest that saw some spectacular dancing with fans and castanets.
As Monday was a Bank Holiday and we managed to escape from real life and work, there was a traditional street party, which also played host to Adele and Best in Come As You Are. The event saw the square outside Bar Soho transformed to a makeshift venue with catering facilities to suit all tastes (especially the beer tent).
The long weekend then ended at Bar Soho with a Worst Dressed contest. As that has just finished as I am writing this, the outfits are still burning my eyes so you shall have to excuse we while I go and blot them out with several pills.
Hope you all have a great week. Keep an eye on the blog for announcement of developments in London City this week and as always, thank you for your continued support.

Oh my goodness! And I thought the usual weekends in London City where hectic! An extended Easter weekend turned out to be crazy.
On Friday we started off with DJ Snakey and host Dex at Bar Soho for a Best in Yellow contest, followed by a mad gallop down the street while getting changed for Best in Glam with DJ Torric and hostess Ruby at Madame Lala's London Revue.

As Monday was a Bank Holiday, we had even more insanity with a Here Comes Summer beach party in Regent's Park with the dynamic duo of DJs Torric and Henning again and later a Best in Easter contest at Bar Soho with DJ Scar and host Bailey (that's me).

Good grief...what an insane weekend in London City. My bunions have bunions from all that dancing.
On Friday we had a change to the usual running order as the usual night at Bar Soho was cancelled to make way for an event by Gallery Xue in Trafalgar Square. It proved to be an absolute sim packer with people floating around the fountain.
After the Gallery Xue event, we headed over to Madame Lala's London Revue for another round of mayhem and madness. A Best in 80s contest proved to be challenging on the eyes...leg warmers. leotard, bad perm...and that was just me.
Saturday at World's End saw a Best in Super Hero contest, which provided a great warm up to the big event that was to follow - Queen in Regent's Park. It was a long concert (at around two hours) but the punters were kept happy with plenty of toe-tapping, hand-clapping and foot-stomping favourites.
Later at Lezbo there was a Best in Sci Fi contest that saw all kinds of madness - from aliens to robots - unleashed on the dance floor!
On Sunday, as it was the first of the month, there was a tea leaf reading at The Tea House by Lord of the Teapot.
This lead nicely in to a special event in the Hub - a L$3000 giveaway! Both events drew in the crowds...in fact, they were queuing out of the door for tea leaf readings.
Later on Sunday we had the grand opening of the new venue beneath Comptons. It is a fab and groovy 60s club called Substation. We were all magically transported back to 1967 with the music, hair and fashions.
After that, we had a Best in Under The Sea contest at Lezbo, which rounded the weekend off in suitably madcap style, with sea turtles, whales and merfolk!
Stay tuned for news of next weekends events - a nice long weekend...heaven only knows what will happen...

Hello my little loves! Yes, auntie Bailey is back after a week off due to ill health (*coughs for effect and sympathy*).
For anyone who didn't know - Saturday was St Patrick's Day and that provided the inspiration for quite a lot of what took place in London City over the weekend. We started off at Bar Soho with a Best in Patrick's contest. You can always tell that you are in for a good time when a line up of individuals dancing includes includes a fox in a St Patrick's hat dancing a jig!

Well that's another weekend of insanity over with...although that one was even more insane than usual.
Things usually start off with our Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue combo, but there was an early start as a variety of old codgers took to a specially erected (stop giggling) stage in the Hub. Rolf Harris, the Seekers, Demis Roussos and Peter, Paul and Mary all made appearances during the course of the afternoon. These were accompanied by various toga, sixties and hippy contests set up to terrify...erm...I mean...thrill the assembled crowd.
We then had a Best in Patriotic contest at Bar Soho - with yours truly in a dress far shorter than I would usually wear - and Best in Glamour at Madame Lala's establishment.
The big news on Saturday was a combination of the big concert - Kylie! - and the Lezbo roadshow for a Best in Punk contest. The concert featured possibly the biggest stage set to ever be erected (I told you to stop giggling) in Regent's Park.
|Some of the party-goers in Regent's Park and Kylie and the band (as insets)|
The final blast of the weekend went as always to Lezbo with a Best in Baggies/Rave contest. I am not saying things were bright but I think I have lost some colour recognition in at least one eye.
Speaking of eyes, it is time I rested mine! Be good (and if you can't be good, be careful - or have an alibi).

A day late with my post this week as it was a holiday here yesterday and the party kept going in London City!
We started the weekend as we always do with an event at Bar Soho, but things quickly moved on as Madame Lala's London Revue Bar had a special event - a live performance by BG Singer, who treated the enthusiastic patrons to a fantastic set.
|BG Singer - and audience|
|The divas all shared a dressing room without incident - although eye contact seemed rare...|

The weekend was brought to a rapturous close by another Party in the Park with a concert by the amazing Amy MacDonald and a selection of hardcore tunes from DJ Ruby.
