The Weekend Review 12-14 October 2012



Hi there everyone, how you doing?  You know, Second  Life is a BIG place, so for us to be the top destination is quite an achievement to say the least, and because we are the best,  we are always going to get people who  try to copy us... which always makes us chuckle, and actually feel sorry for them, trying so hard for what comes so naturally for us... and they may try to ride our  coat tails, but You all  know, as our fantastic residents, there is only ONE  London City, and you are all part of it , BIG hugs all round for the most amazing sim in Second  Life. Big Up London  City xx

This weekend we had a blast, what a wicked time!! Throughout the whole of October, London  City has the  Halloween vibes, where all the fantastic venues are taking on a spooky feel.








We saw Roy and his team  hosting a Gothic evening at Substation.


 Bailey has decorated Bar Soho with ghoulish trim to enhance each event,
Madame Lala's ... well just Lala herself is spooky enough  ~:P , and Juiced themes are so scary they could turn your hair white  :O . All with one thing in mind... to have as much fun as you can Shake a stick  at....








Also,  as you know, London City brings you the best entertainment in the grid...FACT!! ...
Every Saturday evening we play host to fantastic Live entertainment in Regents Park... From Live singers from Second  Life, to fabulous Groups, and Soloists, and this weekend - what can I say ... it was "THRILLING" to have the Prince of Pop with us for an amazing show.




Yes Michael Jackson in London City...Wow!!! did you lot flood the sim, arriving in droves, queuing to get in to the venue to watch Michael Jackson.. usually about now I give a brief outline of the artist, and some facts about them ..... but unless you have  been living as a hermit under a rock for the last  few era you already know this awesome star and most of his fantastic hits.






Although last last few years of his life were turbulent to say the least,  Michael Jackson made a huge contribution to today's music as we know it.. and  London City just wanted to share this awesome artist's music with you, and boy! what a night it was, a record number of people wanting to see  this concert.
1 word .....AMAZING!!!

then straight after  time to hot foot it across the our Adult sim to  Juiced... a singles, themed club, a new night a new décor, Saturday we saw "best in Horror"  everyone turned up looking so scary I nearly hid behind the sofa! :P










Sunday is a time for rest .. phffft not in London City it isn't!!!  Straight in there Bailey helps us into the day with the Sunday smooth, playing all the best  easy listening tunes pacing yourself for more fun to come...

       

like meeting friends in the hub, or a Ouija board in the Adult  hub.... or a visit to the  London City Dungeon ....squeals and hides .....




Then back  to substation with Roy and co early evening....








then back to the Adult hub, for The Crown Pub and Juiced  to bring the weekend to a close.









That's all from me this week, I'll see you next time in London City for even more fun and frolics xxx

The Weekend Review 5th-7th October 2012



Hello London City peeps... Here's a question for you..... Who has the most popular sim in Second  Life ? .....


WE DO!!! yes London City is the most popular destination, and you are all part of it!!



So, how do we do it time and time again? Is it magic tricks? Is it padding the numbers out with robots?( like so many other sims do ) Is bribery and underhand dealings ?

NO! to all the above.
 We have 3 great sims, packed full of fun things to do  every day, we have the best team of people working very hard from Greeters and Support Staff, to Host's and Dj's , fantastic Club and Sim managers right up to the Best MD's found anywhere  in SL , all here to make sure you have the most fantastic time with us.
We hold LIVE open air concerts, we have daily events in the clubs, we have a dedicated full adult sim , we have fully stocked shops to suit every taste and pocket... cars and helicopters free to use, a new user experience to help all new residents into SL, fun events where you can win linden dollars....and we have YOU !
We all have the best time together.

SO, what clubs do we have in London City? ....

There are 4 clubs, Substation
                           Bar Soho
                           Madame Lala's
                           Juiced

Usually the weekend starts off in Substation, quirky and fun, Substation is a retro bar, with retro music, the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. Roy Geddings is the manager he and his team will start your weekend off with a bang.













Bar Soho, cool and swanky, Bar Soho is right on trend with today's night club scene in RL, playing music from wide and varied genres, from rock, pop, trance, techno, R&B and many more. Bailey Saxmundham is the manager, and there is a different DJ/ Host combination every night.




Madame Lala's  is closely based on Madame Jojo's which is the jewel of Soho. Small and compact,  but don't let that fool you, Madame  Lalas is full on fun evry Friday night, with Dj Fierce playing the most varied tunes and yours truly as host. This is a must for every one.



Juiced, found in the adult sim, is one of the newest additions to the  London City club family. It's a themed club, where the décor and music changes daily to suit the "best in Events", not only that Juiced is set up for singles to meet, dance and have fun.








We have two pubs The Worlds End and The Crown

Worlds End is found in Sim 2, It's one of the oldest pubs in London, here you will find Coffee and Katty in high spirits, playing a cheeky little game of truth or dare, also Bingo, which is always great fun.





The crown found in sim 3 Adult, this is a club for open minded adults, who want to have adult fun.
Saucy, naughty, but always fun, packed with essential freebies, and top adult animations, you can really let your hair down there.















Every weekend, London City plays host to an open air  Live concert, we have seen such artists as  Freddie  Mercury, Bon  Jovi, Mika, Dolly  Parton, Elton John....this list is huge, and       all Free!! This is what Saturday nights were made for!!


This weekend we saw Amy MacDonald in concert.
Amy MacDonald, born in August 1987, she is a Scottish self taught musician and singing sensation.










No stranger to London City, Amy really does pull the crowds in, people from all over the grid coming to see her perform such songs like "This Is The Life", "Run", "Don't Tell Me That It's Over" and many more.
We are also running along side the concert a best in scary night where everyone turned up in their scariest attire... Spooky  :P

You would think the sim quietens on a Sunday after such a great night previous... are you mad?  This  is  London  City... we have more fun here than you can shake a stick at...

Sunday first on the agenda Madame Lala's with Bailey on the decks spinning the best easy listening known to man ( or woman )... usually with a best in come as you are ...if it was any more relaxed it would be horizontal....

Then we can go hang out in one of the two Hubs, always busy with people chatting, dancing and making new friends.














Then on to Substation, with Roy and his team, for more 50's & 60's music.












then back to juiced to bring the weekend to a close ...


so that's all from me this week... I'll see you next time for another great time in the best sim in Second  Life xxx

The Weekend Review 28th ~30th September 2012



Hey there, how you doing? Good ? Of course you're doing good, you are all part of the number 1 destination in Second Life .... London City , and it just keeps getting better. We have new builds, new destinations within the 3 sims, new events and concerts, and loads more stuff you can explore... oh and shops did I mention all the shops we have in London City? Top quality, full range to suit every taste and pocket.., we really do have it all.

So, did you have a great weekend?
 We sure did, starting Friday 28th September... woohoo TGIF.
so what's the agenda for tonight...
1. meet friends in the hub
2. all pile along to Substation
3. hot foot it across the sim to Bar Soho
4. dash to Madame  Lala's to finish the night off....
you have to agree that's a full fun  packed evening :) with a chance to win Lindens in every event.


meeting our friends in the Hub

The Hub is a great place to catch up with friends and make some new ones. Here, people gather to chat and dance, it's the hustle and bustle place, great to learn new things too, for all the new second life residents, just off the hub, we have a "new user experience" that will teach you all the basics you need to get around second life with ease  .....

party people at Substation 
Substation is situated just off the Hub, in the Underground ... Roy Geddings  is the clubs manager. So what can you expect from this quirky fun pub ?  ... a definite retro feel,  music from the 60's, events to win Linden dollars, fun and good banter.... in a nut-shell, relaxed and fun, and a great way to kick off your Friday evening in London  City .

next we head along to Bar Soho,

Dancing at Bar Soho


This is almost like the polar opposite, as Substation is retro and a bit "grubby" ( don't tell Roy I said that :O) Bar soho is clean lines, swanky, and polished to perfection.


Bar Soho







Bar Soho is open all through the week, and you will see a different Host , Dj combination every night, playing music from different genre, such as Pop and Chart music, Rock, R&B, Trance and Techno, something for everyone, mimicking the trendy clubs in RL London, Bar Soho is a great place to let your hair down and dance to great music.



Best in Yellow at  Lala's

Dj Fierce, Madame  Lala,and me  :)
And still more to do here in the best sim in Second  Life.... we head to Madame Lala's, for a right knee's up and great banter... Dj Fierce plays the best of weird and wonderful tunes (from Steps to well some I haven't even heard of, and that's saying something lol ).... and I'm the host ( so make sure you drop in and see us  ) ... Quick wit and fun chat here...we really do have a giggle. Again following closely to real  life, Madame Lala's is a great place for open minded adults who love fun and meeting new friends.


And that brings our Friday to a close, but the whole of London City is open 24 hours a day.


What does Saturday have in store for us  ?

Well, every Saturday, London City hosts an amazing  large open air concert in Regents Park, totally FREE and available for everyone to attend, but a word of warning* this is a very busy event, and most of the time people queue to get in to find a good place to see the act on stage, my advice is get there early to avoid disappointment*
The whole sim is buzzing from wanting to see the performers, ranging from groups to LIVE singers famous in SL, and this weekend does not disappoint at all....

Adele
This young lady shot to fame after a friend of hers posted a demo of her singing on myspace....She's 24 years old,  she has earned 6 Grammy Awards, including Album of the year, Britt Awards, and American Music Awards, she's even mentioned a few times in The Guinness world records . ( have you guessed yet?)

Adele in concert


Every one  loving Adele







Born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins... we simply know her as ADELE.... yes we had Adele in concert, flippinek..did you lot love her, packing the sim to capacity.                                                          







You all arrived ready to watch this amazing lady sing songs like " Set Fire To The Rain", Rolling In The Deep","Someone Like  You" and many more fantastic songs.
We all had the best time, teamed with "best in Mesh" with hundreds of Lindens up for grabs, this is what Saturdays were made for !!!

Regents park with Adele in concert
We then race across town to Sim 3 London City Adult in Victoria, heading to  Juiced.

Juiced is a different kind of club altogether,  we have different event themes every night, how's that different you ask..... well, Juiced also changes the décor every night to match the event, and not only that, the music follows suit and compliments the themed event... now you see why it's so different.... and the only club in second life to do this every single night for each event.

So did you Get Juiced yet?

Boxing at Juiced
This week we saw best in Masquerade Ball, best in Boxing , and quite literally we get all kinds of people at these fantastic events.



Best in  Mythical 






Juiced going Mythical 
Amazing costumes for Mythical night 
party people 












On Saturday we saw "best in Mythical "


Sunday 30th September 2012

On to Sunday... after all that, you would expect Sunday to be a bit of a wet kipper.... not at all,  there is never a dull moment here in  London City...

Bailey
First up Bailey Saxmundham, manager of Madame Lala's, swings open the doors about lunch time, playing the best in Easy Listening, especially for those who shall remain nameless that partied a bit too hard the night before ( if you know what I mean )





Roy





Then its time to hit the Substation again, where we find Roy and his team  in a party mood, and playing you the best songs from the 50's and 60's.

Best in Jail 


Then we head back to Juiced to bring your Sunday night to a close .... Where we invited you to join us in the slammer ...Best in Jail.. we had a hoot. Don't forget we are open all week so come join us.



Well that's all from me this week, I will see you next time for another full fun packed week xxx
