Weekend in Review - February 10th to 12th



Hello kiddies, it auntie Bailey.  It's that time of the week again...Monday.  Boo!  But at least we had a good weekend in London City.

We started off with a Best In contest at Bar Soho...Best In Spots, Stripes or Checks, in fact.  It provided the patrons with the opportunity to explore their creativity and we saw a range of costumes and avatars.  DJ Torric provided the music and our hostess was Lisa.

Following on from the contest at Bar Soho. it was quick change time and a mad gallop down the road to Madame Lala's London Revue.  As it was the establishment's first birthday, there was a special tribute concert - by Adele.  Not only did she look stunning, she provided us with a fantastic musical treat.

 On Saturday we had our usual party in Regent's Park, with the contest theme of Best in Shades.  There were fab tunes and a set by Britt McMahon as Billy Joel.  Some of the London City staff (Lisa, Heather and Coffee) provided support as Mr Joel's band.  As always they were fabulous.

We ended the weekend of with a Best in Slippers event at Comptons and then had a Best in St Trinians at  Lezbo.

More next weekend - hope to see you there if not before!

Weekend in Review - January 6th to 8th



Yes, it's me again, auntie Bailey the crazy spinster of London City with the weekend review so hang on to your hairnets and let's do this.

Our weekend kicked off in London City as they always do with a Best In contest at Bar Soho.  Friday's contest was Best in Slogan T-Shirt so no photos have survived the censor's knife as everyone always wears things with rude slogans.  Even a shy, retiring maiden aunt like me is force in to something provocative.

After our stint at Bar Soho ended, we trudged off down the street like some bizarre protest march to Madame Lala's London Revue, where we were treated to the musical stylings of Judith Durham and The Seekers.  I am sure I was not the only one who regarded this with more than a little trepidation but it turned out to be a fantastic musical tour through some classic songs that had the patrons dancing in the aisles...or maybe that was the alcohol.

On Saturday we had our big event in Regent's Park with a new addition to the list of tribute concerts.  London City favourite Britt McMahon brought us Blondie - ably assisted by some of the lovely ladies of the London City staff (who were all transformed in to men to be Debbie Harry's band).  Despite many complaints (from the staff who were forced to wear sensible, i.e. ugly, male shoes), the concert was a huge hit with numbers on the sim peaking at 102.

You may have guessed the contest theme was Best in White
Sunday brought us a sense of deja vu as Judith and The Seekers did an encore performance at Comptons.

Weekend in Review - 1-2 October



As usual our weekend kicked off on Friday night with the regular pop party at Bar Soho and the campness of Madame Lala's London Revue.

Saturday saw an influx of people for the concert in Regent's Park - a tribute by Britt McMahon to the legendary Purple One...Prince.  Your lowly blogger witnessed a peak of 97 avatars on the sim during the concert and everyone danced the night away in a purple haze.

The audience enjoyed the performance so much that no one took any notice of the tripod attacking people in the park...

Alas I have no pictorial evidence of the Sunday night bash which transferred from Comptons to Bar Soho.  I did try to take snapshots but the contest was for Biggest Ass and my camera view was constantly obscured!

Don't forget to check out the London Dungeons, which opened in Regent's Park this weekend...just beware of the zombies as they have quite a bite...

Happy Birthday To...Us!
