Spook your friends!




It is amazing what some people throw away. The Regent's Park bin has 60 items to collect, including some cash!

Someone has carelessly discarded two Wearable Voodoo dolls in the trash can.   Be sure to visit and see if you are the proud new owner of one of them.   You can name them and click them to stick pins in. Will there be enough to go around?

Holiday Weekend in Review - 11th to 13th May



Well another weekend has ended and a new week has begun.  We had the usual shenanigans in London City with all the venues going full out to keep everyone entertained.  Bar Soho, Madame Lala's London Revue, Lezbo, World's End and Substation all had events with diverse themes - but one theme did re-occur across Sunday and that was Best in Swimwear.  Obviously everyone was wishing for summer and we even had an impromptu beach party in Regent's Park on Sunday!

The big event of the weekend was the Saturday concert in Regent's Park.  For the first time on the main stage we had the amazing live singer Adevina Citron.  An hour of songs and humorous chat kept the crowd entertained.




And that's me signing off for another week - be good!

Adevina Citron singing LIVE on Saturday



We have a wonderfully talented Live singer for Party in The Park this coming Saturday from 12pm SL (8pm UK).


From the bottom of her her soul, Adevina seeks to share her heart through music and song. 
An experienced performer, she has come into her own as a top notch entertainer on SL.  An eclectic song list allows each concert to be tailored to the mood of the moment.

Adevina is now entering her second year of singing on SL and is perfecting the art of weaving her music and personality into a tapestry that makes for a great show.  Residents all across the SL grid are discovering and enjoying her light-hearted, fun, and responsive interaction with them.  You never know what you will hear when you show up at her concert, but you will love it.

Adevina is on stage at 1pm SL (9pm UK) here, in Regent's Park

Bank Holiday Weekend in Review - 4th to 7th May



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.

Weekend in Review - 27th to 29th April



Hello my luvvies. just auntie Bailey here with a quick weekend round up as I all partied out this weekend!  And what a weekend it has been - we seem to get more and more parties each week.

On Friday we started off at Substation with an Addams Family party, before moving on to Bar Soho for Best in Baggy Pants and then ended up at Madame Lala's London Revue for Best in Hair and Teeth.

On Saturday we hit World's End for Best in Swimwear (maybe a bit chilly but no one noticed).  Then it was on to Regent's Park for the big Saturday party.  It had a Best in Cowboy/Cowgirl theme and a first for us - a tribute concert featuring John Denver.

Honestly we were line dancing...it just looks like a camp country recreation of the Thriller video

After the party in the park, we headed off on the nightbus to Lezbo for Best in Fluffy/Tiny.

On Sunday we were beamed up to Substation for a Best in Star Trek contest before heading over to the Lezbo Asylum for Best in Horror.

"I only popped in to visit a friend..."
And that concludes my missive for another week.  Have a good week and hope to see you around London City.

Weekend in Review - 20th to 22th April



And so ends another weekend of costumes, music and insanity in London City.  The weekend started on a classy note with Best in Formal at Bar Soho.  It was a first for us, as the event was sponsored by Vero Modero, who provided free gifts and prizes.

Following on from Bar Soho, we headed on over to Madame Lala's London Revue for a Best in Disco contest and some fabulously camp and strange tunes.

On Saturday World's End Pub hosted a Best in Bizarre contest.  I don't wish to besmirch the good names of anyone there, but sometimes you wonder if they make an effort for such contests or just come as themselves!

Hot on the heels of the event at World's End, the party continued with Best in Party Wear in Regent's Park.  The tribute concert was the ever popular Neil Diamond, who had the crowd swaying with his crooning.


Neil Diamond...well, maybe Cubic Zirconia...and his band
After the concert it was time to head off to Best in Pirate at Lezbo.  Rather like fitting a ship in to a bottle, Ruby had managed to fit a pirate ship in to the club.  For added authenticity, she even left the taps running and flooded the club.  Still, it was about time the floor had a wash.


On Sunday we had our own version of the London Marathon, which proved to be fun for competitors, marshals and spectators alike.  Oddly enough even with furries and such, it didn't look any stranger than the real thing!

London hasn't seen so many people running since the lootings
To bring the weekend to a close, we had a Best in Dad's Army contest at Substation and then finally a Best in Fairy at Lezbo.

Stay tuned to find out what is in store for next weekend!

Weekend in Review - 13th to 15th April



Well that's another weekend over with and a new week has been birthed.  On a brighter note, that means we are even closer to the next weekend in London City!

The weekend got underway for us at Bar Soho on Friday with a Best in Sportswear contest.  Hostess Katty stepped in to help out as the regular host was abducted by aliens (or RL, which is much the same experience).  Yours truly stepped in to DJ for the night and I have to confess, I rather enjoyed myself...not sure how much the clientele enjoyed my dance tracks though!

After Bar Soho, we headed down the street as we usually do on a Friday to Madame Lala's London Revue, where there was a special performance by Blondie.

Maybe not Atomic, but definitely traces of radiation...
The party at World's End pub on Saturday was in danger of being raided by the police as the contest was Best in Baddie.  Thankfully the criminal masterminds of London City were able to stay free and made their escape after the event.

For the main event in Regent's Park we saw the ever popular Bee Gees take to the stage.  I do like a nice stage but it usually takes more than that to get my knickers wagging, however, this was something special - a giant disco ball that opened up to reveal the group.

An awesome stage set

Movers and groovers on the Regent's Park dancefloor
After the concert in Regent's Park, revellers (who were obviously drunk and had impaired judgement) boarded the night bus.  Their destination was a Best in Space event at Lezbo and given the bus drivers in London City, a flight in to space is highly probable.

Starship Lezbo goes in to orbit
On Sunday we had another sixties inspired event at Substation with the contest theme of Mods and Rockers.  There was also a live performance by the ever lovely Adevina Citron - great voice and a great personality too.

A great crowd for Adevina
To round the weekend off, there was a Rocky Horror Picture Show event over at Lezbo.

Defies description...
And that's all from me for another week.  Stay tuned to this channel for more news on London City!

Weekend in Review - April 6th to 9th



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.

Best in Yellow at Bar Soho
Saturday saw a completely bizarre version of an egg and spoon race around London City.  Later was a Best in Wedding Dresses/Suits contest at World's End pub. with a Boney M tribute concert and Best in Easter contest in Regent's Park later still.  A Best in Eighties contest at Lezbo with DJ Scar rounded off the evening.

It was acceptable in the 80s...and Lezbo
For Easter Sunday absolutely mayhem was unleashed with an exploding Easter egg hunt that took in the whole of the sim.  Eggs were launched all over the city, some containing cash and some just going bang!  There was also another race...but not egg and spoon this time...it was a crucifix race...  Sunday evening at the new Substation club was another sixtiesfest with a Best in Hippy contest and music provided by DJs Torric and Henning over the course of the event and Royster as host.  Later at Lezbo it was Best in Bunny with DJ Scar.

Summer of Love at Substation
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).

Here Comes Summer!
After all that I think I need to soak my bunions and have a cuppa!  Hope you all have a good week and stay tuned to this channel for more news from London City.

Weekend in Review - March 23rd to 25th



Hello my loves...just a quick posting as I am dashing between parties in London City.  I am having to get changed in the back of a taxi as we speed through the streets.  The life of a blogger can be so hectic at times.  Thankfully, the taxi driver knows me well - he has had me in the back of his taxi a few times now...so to speak.

So anyhoo...hectic weekend.  Friday was Best in Pirate at Bar Soho and Best in Red at Madame Lala's London Revue.  Saturday was Best in Yellow at World's End pub, Best in Tart in Regent's Park and Best in Comic Book Hero at Lezbo.  And Sunday was Best in 1960s in the brand new cellar bar beneath Compton's pub and Best in Armed Forces at Lezbo.

The tribute concert on Saturday was the ever popular Tina Turner.  A stunning set, amazing performances from Tina and the band and a great audience made for an excellent night.

I had my camera with me so managed to get a few snaps.

Not a bad looking audience (from this distance)

Okay kiddies, my taxi has reached it's destination...I'll keep you posted of events.  Yeah I know you are probably at most of them, but you will doubtless be too drunk to remember what happens!  Have a good week!

Weekend in Review - March 16th to 18th



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!

Foxy ladies and an actual fox
From there we moved on to Madame Lala's London Revue for a Best in Green contest (trust me, you will see a theme develop across the parties as we go this weekend).  More jigging ensued.  I tried to get a pic up Billy's kilt but alas all I got was a crack in my lens...

Green with envy (or too much alcohol) at Madame Lala's
For Saturday we had a special stage built in Regent's Park and a contest featuring The Dubliners.  Yes, there was more jigging.  Yes, there was more green as part of the Best in Irish contest.  There may have even been some drinking as the area had two bars for the evening.

And the stage was an entire pub...
Trees are green...and so were the punters
After the concert, festivities continued as the Lezbo roadshow took over the area...oddly enough with a Best in Green contest!  At least it meant people didn't have to change...though some of us did

Regent's Park, A nip and tuck



Meeting area with low collision design to reduce lag.
Working on an estate is a little like painting the Forth Bridge.

Just when you get everything the way you want it, you suddenly realise that parts of your build are getting old and that the technologies applied at the time of building them, have moved on.

This was the case with the meeting area in Regent's Park, which was created for our mainland sim back in July 2010 and has served us extremely well since, even surviving a move to the London City estate last year.

However, we are all human creatures striving for excellence and embracing change.  So it is with pleasure that today we reveal a labour of love, the new Regent's Park infrastructure and Soho Square Touch-Up.

We hope you like it.


A new terraformed and spacial layout make the place bright and breezy.

Weekend in Review - March 2nd to 4th



So kiddies, we had all the usual stuff in London City over the weekend - some bawdiness at Bar Soho, an utter campfest at Madame Lala's and lots of lovely lunacy at Lezbo.  The big events were at Regent's Park on Saturday and Comptons on Sunday - where we had two live performers.

Helvis Xue was our Saturday spectacle in the park.  Always a popular singer with a good selection of songs and plenty of banter with the audience.

Helvis and audience
On Sunday at the local boozer, we had the vocal talents of Adevina Citron, who is always good value for money with her songs and wit.

In the not so humble opinion of auntie Bailey, if you are not coming to London City on a weekend, you are really missing out on the entertainment...so start planning to join us from Friday!
