Hello London City.... Stunned? me too. Wow-wee what a weekend!! Can you believe it ? ....someone pinch me... (ouch!)
Right, are you sitting comfortably? Buckle up and lets go!
Friday 27th July 2012
Ordinarily, Friday in London City starts at Substation, our quirky 60's club, music, dancing, chat, then onto Bar Soho for more great music, and fun, then on to Madame Lala's where DJ fierce plays us some funky tunes and takes us into the early hours.... one of the best nights in Second Life you can have... with great people and fun times..... BUT, not this Friday, oh no! This Friday, all events were held in Regents Park, only because a little thing called the Olympics was in town... oh yes, as you know we follow very
closely the Real Life events that happen in London, like The Queens Jubilee, Gay Pride, yes even the Riots, and One of the most spectacular shows on Earth was beamed LIVE in to Regents Park as the back drop to our fantastic events.
First up in this marathon event, our own Torric spinning the tunes and hosting the event, Coffee and Roy to wet our appetites, and get the crowd going, and speaking of crowds, within the first 10 minutes of opening, the sim was packed full of people wanting to party in the Top Destination in Second Life. Hundreds of people arrived with one thing on their mind...
P A R T Y !!!
Throughout the night we ran a "best in your country's flag" event, so people from all over the grid could show support for their own team in the Olympics,by wearing their flag colours, we had people from all over the Globe here in London City, and we had a blast.
9pm ... Time for the opening ceremony to start nearly £27 million ( $40million USD) was spent on the opening ceremony alone. The tension mounted, if we could have bottled the excitement, we could have powered the Planet with it, amazing! We saw the Queen parachute into the Olympic stadium with James Bond from a helicopter, and how they had managed transformed the Olympic stadium to a lush island of pastoral villages to an industrial monster, where rivers of molten steel formed one glowing ring, then two, then five to form the Olympic 5 ring symbol we all know. All the Royals were there, as Danny Boyle used music, lights, dance and stagecraft, paying tribute to everything British from James Bond and the Queen, to Peter pan and Harry potter, also the N.H.S, fireworks like I'd never seen before in fact there were too many things to mention, there was so much excitement and hype, and we at London City caught it all on large screens in Regents Park where Dj willy played great music for people to dance to and have an evening they will never forget. History in the making people :) Makes us very proud to be British.
Saturday 28th July 2012
Every Saturday, London city plays host to an open air concert, be it Live Singers, Big Bands or Groups, whatever it is, its sure to be the best entertainment in Second Life.
This weekend we had an Abba tribute band, which everyone loves. The sim was full to the brim, and people queueing to get in and party with us.
In 1972 Agnetha Faltskog, Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, came together, they took the first letters from their name and formed the band Abba, they sold over 370 million records between the years 1972 and 1982, which makes them one of the most successful bands of all time, and they still sell millions of records a year.
People arrived in their hundreds, many queueing to get in to the park, what a night, such a great crowd of people all enjoying themselves. Everyone loves this concert and everyone sings along to such greats as Mama Mia, Fernando, Waterloo, Chicken Tika... I mean Chiquitita, I have a dream and many many more.
Later with the Olympics in mind, we held our own Olympic event with a whopping 500L prize, everyone was given an egg and spoon to wear, they had to run from Regents Park to our brand new themed club JUICED. Well, what a hoot, it was so funny watching them all waddle up the street wearing a huge spoon with an egg on, we all fell about laughing.
As you know, we have a great new club in London City called Juiced, its a club with a difference, as its not only you that gets dressed for the fun events, the club changes it décor to match the theme, this week,with the Olympics, we had a sport related theme, the club had a running track on a flood lit field and everyone turned up in their sports wear, and if they didn't have sports wear, they had to party in their vest and pants :)
It was a great night with a cash prize.
Sunday 29th July 2012
Still buzzing from all the hype over the weekend, we need something to bring us back down to earth safely, and what better way that with Bailey, and the Sunday smooth at Madame Lala's.
Yes, Bailey plays the best in easy listening, jazz and smooth jams for us every Sunday. Its a perfect way to ease into your lazy day, chat and dance your cares away.
Later we head to Substation, to catch up on all the gossip with friends, and sing along to some golden oldies, and have a boogie.
then later back to Juiced for more great themes fun and dancing.
That's all from me this weekend, i look forward to seeing you through the week for more fun than you can shake a stick at xxx

Here in Real Life London where our HQ is based, we were thrilled to see the torch going past our windows on Monday. This time it was the real thing and not a shoplifter holding a french stick aloft whilst being chased by two security guards.
We are all feeling cautiously optimistic that the Olympics Games, "London 2012", will pass off without a hitch.
We nervously await the opening ceremony with the confidence that it will be full of razmataz, glitter and do us all very proud and we're not listening to anyone who expects it only to be impressive as Basil Fawlty setting off a box of Brocks fireworks.
We hope you will join us on Friday, from 11am SLT (7pm UK) as we prepare ourselves for a month of fun activities, events, concerts and other special entertainment.
Is it true that London City will be holding an Olympic Egg'n'Spoon race? Of course. We strive to keep everything as realistic as possible :)
See you here, on Friday: http://slurl.com/secondlife/London%20City/133/113/24
Saturday: Olympic ABBA in Concert, Best in Olympics theme competition.
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
When London City started on a small Mainland parcel three years ago, we could never have dreamed that it would grow and evolve into the single most popular destination in all of Second Life. We owe our following to the patrons, the merchants and the crew that operates the estate.
Please join us this Saturday from 12pm SL (8pm UK) in Soho to celebrate our Birthday.
Here is the TP link http://slurl.com/secondlife/London%20City/100/123/23
At 1pm SL, Adevina Citron will be singing LIVE on stage and taking requests from the audience.
At 2pm SL, brand new, the legend that is Bon Jovi, A Tribute Concert.
The theme for this weeks competition is "Best in Birthday", which is open entirely to your own interpretation.. but a clue is to start rummaging in your inventory for any Rez Day and Birthday items you have :)

Hello there London City gang :) how ya doing?
Let me start by saying it was great seeing you all this weekend, in the number 1 destination in Second Life .... but don't just take my word for it.....
Friday 13th July 2012
Whoaaa Friday the 13th , but nothing to fear in London City, it's just another great day to start the weekend, and where better than to start at Substation, a quirky club with a retro feel, and a blend of 50's and 60's music to wet your appetite. It's the kind of place to unwind and let your hair down, meet up with some friends have a chat, and dance before hitting more clubs in London City. It has a fun friendly atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
Then on to Bar Soho, a very popular club with everyone.
Bar Soho is open every day of the week except Saturday and Sunday, and it sees a different Dj, Host combination every night, so it's fresh and fun. Here you can dance your cares away, chat with friends, or just lose yourself in the music, its a great night out for everyone and don't forget that addictive lyric machine.
Then to take you right into the night, next stop, Madame Lala's... this is a fantastic club, if you want FUN, get yourself to Lala's on a Friday night, you will not stop chuckling from start to finish and that's down to the amazing sharp wit of resident Dj Fierce.
Madame Lala's is a small cosy club with a great atmosphere, Dj Fierce plays all manor of funky tunes to get your foot tapping, some golden oldies and some never heard before tracks that some how all blend perfectly together.
Saturday 14th July 2012
and this weekend was no different, we had Saturday night at the Proms join us in London City, ugh! classical music i hear you groan... what!! are you kidding me? , this concert is so popular, playing the most popular tunes people love and also introducing people to classical music that have never enjoyed it before, playing the most awesome melodies like Beethoven' s 1812 overture and Land of Hope and Glory by Edward Elgar and many more ..... 1 word WOW, the sim was so full of people trying to get to see this concert, they were quite literally queuing to get in... the event also runs a "best in " contest, this week we saw people put on their "Posh" and come in their finest gowns and suits, how fabulous everybody looked, who knew we would scrub up so well :) The evening was a blast, everyone had so much fun.
Then on to Lezbo
Lezbo is my featured club this week. The club is open to everybody and anybody, its a themed club, with a different theme each night, but its a club with a difference, not only is there a themed events every night, but the club interior changes every night to compliment the theme, and it doesn't stop there, the music also is tailored to accompany the theme, so every night people turn up not quite sure what to expect from this amazing club, also the themes are a little more taxing than usual, people spend time hunting the perfect outfit, and it really pays off, with everyone looking totally awesome.
But if you don't get dressed up into the theme, you are always made welcome to dance the night away and join in the fun friendly chat .
This week we saw events like "best in Prison", "best in Under the Sea", "best in Sleep-over", "best in Red Carpet/ Paparazzi" and "best in Mythical"
Sunday 15th July 2012
What a night last night was, amazing!! and yes I for one feel a little worse for wear this morning :P, I just want to take it easy and slide into the day, ... and what better way than joining Bailey ( Madame Lala's club Manager ) for the Sunday Smooth, ahhhhhh, Bailey plays the best smooth jams and easy listening tunes to help bring us back to life from the excitement of the night before, absolutely perfect. The Sunday Smooth starts around 11am, so we don't even need to get up early and is the best way to start your Sunday.
Later, we head back over to substation for more chatting and dancing in the early evening, and into the night back at Lezbo to bring the weekend activities to a close and ready for another exciting week in London City .xxx
So, that's it from me this week, I look forward to seeing you all for another fun packed week
