Weekend in Review - February 24th to 26th



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.

On Sunday we had our usual weekend wind down at Comptons where the contest was for the Worst Dressed.  This seem far harder to pick than anyone would have imagine from the state of a lot of people in SL...

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).

Weekend in Review - January 27th to 29th



So here we are - the final weekend review of January 2012.  This month has gone by so quickly, but as the saying goes 'time flies when you are having fun'.  Of course they also say that 'time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana', but we shall pass over that one as the talk of bananas makes me giddy.

Friday started off for us as it usually does with a visit to Bar Soho where we had a Best in Wild West theme with DJ Billy 'The Kid' Arentire and hostess Lisa.  This helped everyone unwind before we all turned in to tie dye clad hippies for Madame Lala's London Revue.  Special guests were a tribute to Peter, Paul and Mary and the contest was somewhere between a peace protest and a love in.  Although if I am really honest, from the state of how some people were dressed it was more like a protest against good taste...

On Saturday we had a real treat as one of London City's favourite SLebrities took to the main stage in Regent's Park.  Yes, we had the return of Mapoo Little and her extraordinary voice.  She wowed the crowd with a selection from her repertoire taken from Amy Winehouse and Adele.  A stunning concert as always.

The crowd shake their pixels for Ms Little
There were, of course, the usual events across other London City venues - Comptons on Sunday and Lezbo on Saturday and Sunday...how do we fit so much in to one weekend?!

And that is it from auntie Bailey for this week.  All that remains for me to say, in the spirit of Friday's event at Madame Lala's establishment, is "May peace shower down on you".

Peter, Paul and Mary in Revue - Friday



For fifty years, Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers entertained audiences under the name of Peter, Paul and Mary.

Best remembered for Leaving on a Jet Plane, If I Had A Hammer and Puff The Magic Dragon, the trio also recorded many more popular folk songs of the time.

Take a trip down memory lane this Friday evening at Madame Lala's London Revue.
Doors open at 2pm SL (10pm UK) with Peter, Paul and Mary in Concert at 3pm SL (11pm UK).
