|London City West|
It was the best fun since Christmas, arguably event better! There was no need to buy presents or to visit long lost relatives usually only wheeled out for weddings and funerals.
But here in the UK, four days of rest and relaxation with the odd tipple here and there, has finally come to an end :(
Looking on the bright side, the clocks moved forward on Sunday morning and we gained another hour of daylight as we were propelled into Springtime. It seems amazing that in January we were adjusting to night time starting at just after 4pm, whereas today, dusk will be at 8.03pm
And for many people, this is just a 4 day working week, so not long to wait until the next weekend!
Looking forward, there is another Bank Holiday at the end of April and by then, dusk will be at 9.10pm and here London City SL, the first of the beach parties is just around the corner!

The plonk was flowing and you all showed yourselves up disgracefully. I on the other hand, was sober as a judge, a gentleman, witty and debonair. At least, that is how I remember it, and I'll drink to that.
Enjoy the video of the antics and don't forget Substation today at 11am SL time (7pm UK) where we can carry on, thanks to a long weekend here in the UK.

It is another Bank Holiday here in England which means us Brits get another day off work.
According to Weatherman 'Aint', there is a big old storm brewing and moving across central England, so although it may not be Barbie weather in real life, here in London City it is sun, sea, and surf at the Beach Scene.
So come and hang out with the bathing beauties and soak up some virtual sunshine rays and enjoy extra events around the London City Estate today.

You have to feel a bit sorry for the people in real life who deferred going to Notting Hill Carnival on sunny Sunday and decided wait until Bank Holiday Monday instead! Traditional British Bank Holiday weather again.. Heavy rain, not letting up for a moment and it has been going on all day here in real life London where we are based.
Luckily in the Virtual London that is London City in Second Life rain in our regions is at scheduled times, half an hour after sunrise courtesy of our bespoke Immersive Weather System.
Enjoy this video of the Bank Holiday weekend in London City and keep an eye out for Billy using our exclusive Portal system halfway through the video to seamlessly move from London City(1) to London City3, part of the Experience Tools System.
Have a great day and don't get too off your face... I'll drink to that!

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.
